My father bought THIS TV without asking me first because it was on sale and it does not support DLNA.
I've setup a DLNA server with about 12tb of TV shows Movies etc for mom and dad and now they are mad because it will not work.

I am looking for a DLNA Transcoding box and would love some input. Everything on the DLNA server is already encoded to mpg that their old TV accepted BUT, I would love to no longer have to worry about re-encoding everything in the future so.. a transcode box is desired.

Who can recommend a decent one with all the bells and whistles?

Thanks in advance..

Otherwise Plex/Emby server would likely work. but you'll probably need a chromestick/roku though for that TV anyway. Doesn't sound like it'll work out of the box.

I've briefly seen Plex a year or so ago and never messed with it. After watching THIS VIDEO I am thinking this is a good option.
Which should I get with it though.. Roku or Chrome stick?

Also.. How would I say this..
Plex.tv is not local (private enough) and some of my movies are not err umm, "legit". Would those be a problem? How private is it..
