Default Media Servers

Im finally finishing my PC build, and its almost ready for a media server.

Honestly, I dont know where to start. I know about all the firestick hacks and all that. But I'd love to make a media server, and not have to use multiple devices all over my house.

Right now I have a firestick in my living room, firestick in my game room, and a roku in my bedroom.

Plus having roughly 8 remotes in my living room. If there is a way to cut this down I'd love it

Not sure what you are really asking.

Ways to limit the hardware in rooms? Ways to have a centralized server with all of your media shared between rooms? Sources for media outside of Amazon, etc.????

From what I hear, QNAP servers are some of the best for this.

I fully recommend the QNAP TS-451+. I've had it for 18 months and it's been great for serving content to my Kodi device and to my PC.
