    And i can only get the web interface to Plex. It cant find the drive either. And it doesnt have a front end as far as i can see. is this normal?

    Plex's Linux front end is called Plex Home Theater. You need to start it like any other app. If you've installed it, and there's no trace of it, try launching it from the terminal. If that doesn't work, try installing it again (packages here: forums.plex.tv/index.php/topic/8­7253-plex-home-theater-linux-builds/).

    In regard to the server (the web interface) finding your files, if I remember correctly you need to give access to the directory/driver they are stored on to a specific Plex user. I presume this is also true for XBMC.

    I've said it before, but I'm going to say it again (because I've just looked into it again, as I'm due an upgrade and trying to decide whether to jump ship or not): 4G is not the same from everyone. Threes 4G rolled out at speeds not a whole lot faster than previous gen. I'm not sure if it's much faster now, but I'm skeptical. EE's 4G is faster than most people's home ISP speeds. Both have advantages (one's fast, the other's cheap). But simply saying Three is 4G at a fraction of the cost isn't the whole story. (It seems O2 is by far the loser, btw - don't get O2 4G. Something about their network being unsuitable for urban areas, so it ends up being slow and costly - which means Giffgaff 4G will be equally shit).

    I'm still tempted by Three. Money is an object in my case. If it wasn't, I'd stick with EE. Having said that, I'd like to see some real data on average speeds before making the decision.

    You manage your library through the web interface. There are apps for watching. The second thing you downloaded is that.

    You're not posting any errors, just commands.

    I'm not an Ubuntu/Debian user, so I may not be any help, anyway. But what exactly is the problem you've encountered?

    I've got my last two phones on 18 month contracts and in both cases it was cheaper (using a £12 tariff as the base) than buying outright. I'm actually due an upgrade, but not bothered. Not sure what to do.
