Plex Setup Update

I now have all of my media in one place on my HP Proliant DL380 G7. It took a few days as the library consists of over 14TB of files.

When I tried to install the Quadro P400 into the server, the system would crash on the driver installation and force the server to reboot. This would render Windows effectively bricked and I fought with this about 3-4 times before giving up on getting it to work. Plan B is to use a GTX 1050 single slot card in its place. I have a GTX 750 installed in my colo server so this should work too. The GTX 1050 has more shader units than the Quadro P400 and it is HP branded so hopefully the fan control will be softer. The memory bandwidth bus is 128bit vs 64bit too. I will need to use the driver nvenc unlock to get its full potential, but according to the attached matrix, I should be able to get 14 simultaneous transcodes. This has yet to be benchmarked by myself, but the numbers look promising. I will post an update shortly after I've had a chance to test these findings.
