So this might seem like a strange topic for an UltraHD thread, but given the ability to place content onto home servers it seems more valid than ever. I have been using Plex for years and have had pretty good success with it, but UHD content has definitely thrown a wrench in the works. I recently went to a Pentium G4600 processor and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for my server needs. The G4600 seems like a pretty lightweight processor, but it is surprisingly powerful when it comes to hardware transcoding of content. The biggest issue I still have is that I can’t transcode 10-bit HEVC content to SDR with proper tone mapping or 10-bit HEVC with PGS subs to 1080p. This means I have to keep the 1080p copy and the 4K copy on my server. Given the fairly tremendous storage requirements of 4K I would prefer to only keep the 4K copy, but it seems I am going to be waiting a while for that. I have also gotten creative with segregating content without the use of multiple libraries in Plex for those users who do not own a 4K TV and therefore have no need for 4K access.
That all said, is there anyone here using Emby and what has your experience been like with UHD content? Especially cases of HDR to SDR conversion of PGS subs.
