Hi! I've been away for quite awhile. My God, it's been 2 years since my last post! I joined over 10 years ago. Boy, have things changed around here.
Anyway, I'm old, relatively lazy and somewhat tech savvy. And really getting annoyed at Rogers. But that's for another post in the rant Forum.
Lately, I've been waxing Apple - ish. Used PCs all my life, but I was looking to switch it up for a bit, Yes, they are expensive and yes they have both their fans and detractors, and I don't want to get caught up in all of that stuff.
So here's what I have, here's what I'd like to (maybe) do and any suggestions as to how best to set up would be great. Please, no bashing. I have what I have and I just want to use it as best I can.
First on Content and interfaces- Plex vs Kodi - streaming / storage.
Second on relatively simplicity - I like elegant solutions (if there are any with what I have)
Third - here's the equipment.
Apple TV 3rd Gen
Apple Time Capsule (Airport Extreme with 2 Terabyte Storage)
Asus RT-N56U Router
Seagate 250 Gbyte USB portable drive
Macbook Pro Retina - 8 Gig Ram 256 Gig SSD (which I think is just the slickest thing since sliced bread!)
Andover Android Q8 Box with Kodi Installed
iPhone 6 64 Gig
iPad 2 16 Gig (wife's dinosaur)
So... I;m trying to "cable Cut" but what I've run across so far doesn't turn my crank. I like convenience but don't want to sell my soul to get it. I'm fairly tech ok, but the wife has trouble juggling remotes (!!)
At least I don't put Black tape over the flashing 12:00 on the VCR...
So, waddya think? Good start? Bad start? I know it's a bit of a dogs breakfast, but I'm retired, and have some time on my hands.
