My computer is 100% always on for media server and torrent seeding purposes already, so idling for cards (usually just keeping a game open on a menu screen while I do whatever else) isn't going to add much.

The power went out a few days ago and my computer was turned off for a few hours, this is probably the longest that its been turned off since I moved (almost exactly) a year ago.

I have my laptop on all the time for similar purposes. On topic??? Plex sucks for my tv streaming. DivX works better for me.

Funny, cause for me Plex works fucking awesome and DivX is a terribly annoying piece of shit.

I stream to the TV through an Amazon Fire TV, and plex works for that as well as all my android devices (phone, tablet) and also my consoles, and also my other PCs.

I really like plex is what i'm saying.

The Xmas sale historically has started on the Thursday before Xmas week, ending the Monday after New Years at 1pm eastern.

So this year it would be on the 18th. Unless they break with tradition that is.

How are you using Divx? I'm using Plex and it doesn't work well at all with my Fire TV box. Videos stop after about 10 mins of play with a "Can't play media" error. I hit play again and it starts up at the point it stopped just fine, but then stops again 10 minutes later. I've read many people have this issue with the Amazon box.
