    Attention Raspberry Pi 2 Plex

    Hi Guys,

    For Christmas the University gave me £150 Amazon voucher which I am thinking of using it to purchase a couple of RP2s. I have found out you can run Plex on the old version so this should run like silk!

    It looks pretty good to me and would save me a couple hundred building a dedicated box.

    What do you think?

    I'm running OSMC on my Pi 2 and it runs like an absolute dream. So highly recommended from me.

    Might run but encoding multiple streams doesn't stand much chance I'd say

    Be interesting to see real life differences in use between the NowTV and Pi2. I imagine the menu would be snappier but anyone hazard a guess if that's about it?

    I was waiting for the gen2 NUC boxes to come out and pick up a gen1 i3 on the cheap but knowing me I will end up with a gen2... This would replace my Revo as a dual boot windows/XBMC/Plex (if it's possible to add Plex too) so I had Sky Go and an OS for rare use, XBMC for when I'm at home and Plex to stream my stuff when I'm away.

    Is the Now TV 720p only? That would mean in terms of resolution the Pi wins, but it is not always about the resolution..

    tbh I wouldn't worry about it. I have a Now TV (somewhere) and two Rokus and HD works a treat - I think the Now TV. You can't really tell any downscaling to 720p from what I can tell. Now TV is definately 720p though and if that's a deciding factor Roku supports 1080p

    I agree, I only download 720p or lower for TV stuff for disk space etc. but if 1080p is essential...

    Just got the latest build of RasPlex for my Pi 2 and it works a bloody treat. Still can't believe what these little things are capable of.

    Apple TV is only £50 or so isn't it and can be jailbroken/have plex installed.

    Only the ATV 2. As far as I am aware the ATV 3 cannot be done yet.

    There is a whole ATV 1 scene also but it's not as powerful.
