As long as you have your files organized correctly Plex should be quick and easy to setup

If you want Plexpass buy the lifetime membership today, starting tomorrow it doubles in price

yeah, XBMC forced the same organization which was probably my problem before coming from the boxee software which didn't care. i was also confused by the separate server/player applications but I understood that going in this time.

Thanks for that advice, I'll look into it. Worth it?

It's worth it for me, because I regularly use two of the features that come with it: sync and multi-user control. The sync is great for taking media with you on the road, it's a really easy way to get TV and movies on my ipad without having to use itunes and all of the restrictions that comes with. Multi-user control is important to me because I have a handful of people who access my server, and this way they have their own login, settings, watch history, etc.

I may eventually also use CloudSync if the cloud storage services are more functional and I have better upload speed.

PlexSync is interesting to me but I don't know that I would use it THAT often. Multi-user support isn't important. I'll keep thinking but leaning towards no.

In that case probably not worth it for you. The other added features are mostly fluff

I liked the Fire TV so well, I just ordered another one for the other TV.

I've been using mine a decent amount lately to play around, it is a very nice box

It will likely replace my Apple TV 2 as my League Pass streaming box for this season
