might this be an even more budget choice?

celeron j4125 can do quick sync I think?

I would highly recommend avoiding the J series processors. I’ve had nothing but issues with them with QSV. They are also not socketed, and therefore non-upgradable. 4GB of RAM is also below my minimum recommendation of 6 or 8GB.

In for 1. After the Chenbro case, Supermicro X11SCV-Q and this, I think I should give my eBay account a bit of a break.

In for one for $217 after tax (free shipping). Been looking for a box to run Blue Iris on so the WH10 license is a big plus

Got one for $213. Should be here in a few days. Would like to make a Quick Sync Plex box.

These are now available from a seller for $160 plus tax. Less if you buy multiples. From the description they might not look great cosmetically.

Yeah - looking at the layout of these it seems unlike the HP S01 that the PCI-E slot might actually support a 2 slot GPU. I’d like to throw an A310 in there to enable AV1 encode and transcode. I’d hope the stock PSU could handle that. Not sure if I could get away with an A380

There’s little reason to throw an A310 in there right now. It’s not supported via Plex.

I use Jellyfin. From what I’ve gathered you can get it working in Windows, or with mild headaches in latest linux kernels.
