So what I'm looking to do is make a media player using my rpi4 (with a hifiberry dac hat) using plex to access all of my media as well as my tidal account. Which I can access thru plex. Mostly using for music tho. I want to put an hdmi out on the unit as well so if I want to watch a movie I can plug in a tv.
My question is what is the best way to go about this. I know there is rasplex. But i have heard some people dont really like it. What other options are there to use plex on a pi?
Also i want to put a 4x20 character display on the unit to display what's playing.
This is the display I was looking at.
How would I go about hooking it up and getting it to run properly? Is there a "how-to" online anywhere?
Also to interface with plex I was thinking about using a smartphone to select what to play.
Sorry I'm new to the pi world.
Any help would be appreciated.
