I bought the HP Microserver 36L when they had the cashback offers awhile ago, running WHS2011, 4x2TB for all my movies/tv shows as Plex server works brilliantly.

Yeah but unless you're pirating your media, you already have to rip it anyway. Not much of a hassle to fire up Handbrake after MakeMKV finishes doing its thing.

Have a friend who has a Mac Mini running 10.9 and running the newest version of PLEX.

She says PLEX keeps dropping the connection to the server and the only way she can get it to reconnect is to completely reboot her internet connection *comcast*

I've searched around but haven't seen anyone else run into this problem.

She says she also can't get Serviio to work? Since I've not used either of these please help me out.

"She would also like to be able to use an app that lets her kids see one folder of a show but does not give them access to everything but don't know which app that would be."

Thanks in advance!

For such a specific problem she or you should ask over in the Plex forums. Tons of helpful people over there and more likely to find someone that knows the answer quicker.
