    The latest version is 2.5 beta. I have yet to try it but am running 2.4 with both Plex (for Videos only) and LMS on an HP Microserver with SSD for operating system only with storage on my QNAP via NFS.
    Some work is required to configure it to use the NAS storage and to rip CDs directly to it and also to get 7.9.2 installed but once done it runs very well although it should be noted that 2.4 is based on an old Fedora.
    2.5 uses a more current Fedora.

    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

    More options! Thanks :-) From looking at https://www.vortexbox.co.uk it seems it's a hardware/software combo. I'm not ye clear if it's possible to download vortexbox free and install on yoru own hardware...

    Vortexbox installation vows

    I have the image on a USB connected to my Tranquil server. When the initial multi install options come up I select install 2.5 beta following https://wiki.vortexbox.org/vortexbox...n_instructions. When that finishes it leaves me at a command line user@zesty:~$

    If I do an exit it reboots and if I disconnect the usb stick is says there is no bootable device.

    The installation page/faq does not cover this scenario as far as I can see. I can't see a vortexbox forum, any advice is much appreciated.
