    I don't think it would take much NIX know how to install Vortexbox on an HP Microserver.
    VB2.4 storage QNAP TS419p (NFS)
    Living Room - Joggler & SB3 -> Onkyo TS606 -> Celestion F20s
    Office - Pi3+Sreen -> Sony TAFE320 -> Celestion F10s / Pi2+DAC & SB3 -> Onkyo CRN755 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Dining Room -> SB Boom
    Kitchen -> UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) - Pi2+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
    Bedroom (TV) - SB Touch ->Sherwood AVR ->Mordaunt Short M10s

    I'd like to make a mention of any of the Synology NAS devices. Very straightforward to use and mine runs LMS very well.
    Also a wide range of prices.

    I do agree, Synology is good. I have one also. However LMS only works out of the box till version 7.7. If you want support for 7.8 or higher, you have to use SSODS (but not all Synology's are supported).

    7.8 looks like it is still beta though. So I can understand that 7.7 is the latest version officially offered by Synology.

    Can't speak for Synology but on a QNAP you install the latest QPKG for LMS which installs SSOTS/SSODS and LMS 7.7.2. You then use SSOTS to upgrade to 7.8.1 which isn't beta it's Community release. 7.9 is the community beta afaik.
    I have done this on a really old TS109 but left my TS419 at 7.7.2. My Vortexbox is at 7.8.1 but uses the files on the TS419.

    Is that correct? 7.8.0 is a 'final' frozen version and 7.8.1 is still in development by Michael. Am i right?

    thanks for the responses everyone. I didn't mean to post and run.

    I think I asked slightly the wrong question. Here's my scenario -- my old dad (completely non-technical) runs LMS on an extremely antiquated PC (I think it is running XP) which sits in his study and is no longer used for anything at all other than running LMS, and storing all his music files (less than 10 GIG) It takes ages to boot up, and he needs to replace it.
    The only functionality he wants is to store all his music files and run LMS. (for everything else he uses tech for he likes to use his laptop, or his tablet).

    my immediate thought was to buy him a NAS that is capable of running LMS. Install that for him, it will do the job AND I can put some back up software on his laptop to back it up.
    But maybe I jumped in too soon - maybe a HP microserver is a a better idea.

    So anyway summarising - the requirements are

    - hold his music files
    - runs LMS
    - can store back ups of his laptop
    - reliable
    - cheap! this is not a ú1000 problem.


    I will do the tech needed to buy it, set it up, copy the music on to it get LMS working, but from then when I go back home on I need it to sit quietly in the corner and be forgotten about.
