I just switched to a Pi 4 (8GB) with a 1TB WD external drive. So far, so good. But I wanted to know to know of any tips and tricks that can help make the most out of it. Here are some questions I have:
- Should I use a bus powered USB drive or one with its own external power supply? What makes one better over the other?
- What are the transcoding issues with using a Pi?
- Should I use hardware or software transcoding?
Thanks so much!
