I had a HDD failure in my 710 LMCE system (it was RAID5, and then the 2nd drive had data failure before replacement arrived), and now I am about to reinstall LMCE from scratch. You can read about my system in the wiki, but the old system had a few issues. Install was a pain, but I worked through most of the issues. The only major issue I had left was that after being on 24/7 for a week or two, the system would skip while playing videos (even low-res ones that it shouldn't have an issue with). I am trying to decide if I should use the latest 810 snapshot, and go for that instead. In your opinion, if you were me, would you go with the devil you know (710) or the devil you don't (810)?
I would install 1004
