desktop to pi to tv

Post by wiab4355 » Fri Dec 29, 2017 6:56 am

Not really sure if this a newbie question or not, but here goes.

Basically my Dad's DVDs, CDs and photos are going to be ripped and stored on a desktop (LXLE), sent by Ethernet to Raspberry Pi (Openelec/Kodi) and then to HDTV.

Any software/hardware suggestions and, obviously, tips on where to start would all be appreciated.

Chromecast by Google or Amazon stick can be used to pair your tv with other wi fi devices.

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!
