    I have a large "data server" and use Kodi via several Nvidia Shields
    that are connected to each TV in the house.

    Sounds like something I need to start looking into!!

    We have a similar setup. We have everything stored on a NAS in the basement and use an Apple TV & an app called Infuse to stream it in the living room.

    It's a pretty slick app which has a nice interface. When we're done with whatever we want to watch there, it's just a few buttons on the remote to switch over to Netflix, Disney+ or Tablo (OTA TV) to watch something there, makes for a nice one box/one remote solution.

    Sounds remotely interesting, but the problem I have is that I'd be the only
    one using it. The handbrake bless her soul, never likes watching movies a second time... I'll go back and rewatch something either just because I like it, or to try and pick up bits I might have missed the first time. The "kids" such as they are... not that small these days, just tend to stream everything to phones for the most part, occasionally through a PS4 for a larger screen
    and that's about it. I find just using VLC off the NAS to be just as
    effective.
