Hi All

I installed LinuxMint recently using my Gigabyte GA-Z97X https://www.gigabyte.com/uk/Motherboard ... -rev-11#ovand i7 4790 with 32 Gig of 1600 Fury ramhttps://www.amazon.com/Kingston-HyperX- ... B00J8E8YES, 2 x Hitachi 4TB drives and a WD Red 8 TB drive all combined into one LVM drive to give 16TB. Samsung SSD Nvme 250 GB Drive.

It runs in my Jonsbo G3 case http://www.jonsbo.com/en/products_4_1.html (looking to add a tft screen display for titleshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttusrXzqMkA or a nice time Display with Souynd Analyser https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtuT2SjFY1g) Volume control isn’t enabled, a work in progress.

My system runs my IPTV, Plex Media server and lossless Asset server. I use samba to share all my files with 3 TVs, PS4, 3 windows desktops. Installing Linux mint was very straightforward with absolutely no fuss, took me a while to work out LVM, I installed WebMin which made it easier..

I Was also able to get my blu ray player working with VLC, no menus but it plays great. The machine is running a lot and is very quiet with 3 be quiet 120mm fans and a low profile be quiet cpu cooler.

This build will run all my media, storage and entertainment for a long time to come. I just need to build a freenas box to backup all my stuff now lol, another project another day.

Thanks to the community for assisting with things like, large screen fonts viewtopic.php?f=47&t=276278 and various scripts.

I found a very cool bash script to give you a really nice command line, you can find that here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rogn_4cQSHg and here is the link to the git files https://github.com/flipsidecreations/dotfiles

Needless to say my Multimedia has taken one massive upgrade, even the wife commented on the sound quality, optical from my onboard audio and the HD looks really HD now, everything is running as smooth as silk.

Thanks for the responses and I will certainly look at the media forum. I have only just got started with LinuxMint but I am finding it to be a pleasant experience from the other distros. :D :D
