I'm still wondering if PKC (Plex Kodi Connect) is right for me.  I'm
reading more of the documentation and it looks like there's more negatives
in my install than positives.  For example, I have multiple set top boxes
that are configured to use MySQL in Kodi to sync the libraries across
everything.  It sounds like this may be a no-go with PKC.  I'm not exactly
sure yet, but I kind of think that there are a few settings Kodi uses in
MySQL to get a similar look and feel.  I am still looking into this.  The
other thing is I have a mixture of devices; one's an i5, one is a firetv,
and another is a walmart android tv box. PKC might work, but there's a
warning in their docs about using it on lower power devices.

I know this is a bit OT.  But basically, my setup is Myth for my backend,
Plex for mobile devices, and Kodi for internal/in-house watching.  While
everything works OK, there has to be a better, more uniform, and easier way
to get this done, as my kids are getting old enough to navigate the TV and
I want to make it crazy easy for them.
