Hi! So I’ve been looking into building a small and cheap “home server” for my family.

 

We have an AndroidTV set up and I’d like to somehow sync their media to my main rig from my house (I live a few blocks away).

 

My current idea:

- used Thin Client (HP T620 70$)

- ext USB 3.0 HDD
- Linux with ResilioSync

- Remote Acces through AnyDesk

- Turn on some sort of media/fileshare

- Kodi on AndroidTVs

 

The setup will be connected through LAN to the house’s main router

 

I feel like I’m missing something with this setup.

 

My goal is to avoid having to lug around an extHD everytime my fam needs a specific movie/tv show to watch.

thanks! I was just (maybe) worried about the capabilities/performance of ThinClients as servers. hehe
