    It is not possible to use an OS mini as a plex server. However you can install dreamplex*, which turns your stb into a plex client (for accessing content from a plex server). It works fine on my os mega.

    * if vix menu/plugins/download plugins/extensions

    i have dreamplex sorted on my edision os mini, a person has shared their server with me and it works perfectly.
    Ho do i share my own media with myself? i have PC/server with a few terabytes of videos etc that i would like to stream through my TV/edision box .
    on the plex tv web interface i can watch al my content but how do i get my edision dream plex to see it? it picks up the one i pay for perfectly is it possible to watch my own content too?

    Enable samba on both devices, then add your server
    I have 1 main HDD serving 2 stbs and whatever other devices I connect to my network

    Edit : you don't need to use Plex to view your own recordings, as long as they ate in the correct format for the box to read.

    Samba is in the addons on an E2 box, and is standard on Linux PC/server, maybe some windows guys can sort out what you need to do on your server if it's windows based.
