Blog2018 ≫ Brought my Sony TV back to life

We have a Sony TV in the bedroom that has been slowly dying. There is no aerial to it so we mostly relied on it's built in smart features to access iplayer and so on. Gradually these services have been disappearing (4OD went, youtube went, etc) and now iplayer is gone, so it's mostly useless. I started playing with plex the other day, using it to access my NAS and so have now put that on a raspberry pi zero w that was unused and now I have a media centre in the bedroom again.

raspberry pi: Credit card sized super cheap computer, awesome.
