So for a fathers day present my dad has been wanting a small media center forever, he saw my raspberry pi setup and loved it and wanted one for himself. So I got him a good setup, gonna throw openelec on it and Use an old external to store movies on.
Thing is, The whole "couch movie surfing" is difficult since Raspberry pi doesn't have an on switch. Also Im not sure how ok it is to leave on 24/7 with OpenELEC?
Is this going to cause issues with the external constantly being used or the raspberry pi constantly being on? They aren't super computer literate so it'd kinda be something I set up, and if they need more movies I just Put more on their external.
