Nope, I have plexguide running on one of the i7-4770(i think that's the numbers) I got from the auction. I think I am still back on V6 or 7 (been a while) since I don't really like upgrading that server as its what I consider in production and it is working. I do allow my users to transcode cause the server can handle it and most of their home connections will not support some of the direct play options at higher rates. Personally I direct play most everything and only really run into issues when the home network gets congested. The server it self runs great though I have serveral containers outside of plex running for various tasks. I do all the downloading on a GCE instance though. Recently I have been working on running jellyfin and strm files and that is showing to be quite promising. I have a relatively small group of users but have done 10-12 concurrent streams with 7-9 of those transcoding.
