Way, way back in the 1980s when I was using an IBM compatible, my favourite application was Sidekick (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borland_Sidekick) and then I abandoned the PC when Microsoft Windows was released and went to the Acorn A5000.
I too loved this product.

Re: desktop to pi to tv

I use Plex with Roku.
Just finished digitizing my 255 DVDs too, what a chore. My iMac handled it like a champ (and w\only 8G of RAM)

Good Luck and Have Fun!
