Initial Setup... Getting Closer...

#1
I’m in the process of organizing my media onto my 1TB USB drive to use with my 3B+.  As far as setting up the libraries within Plex itself, should I just connect the Pi [via HDMI] to my TV and set it up on the Pi itself?

Also, my 1TB USB drive is currently formatted as an NTFS drive; does it need to be reformatted into a different file system?  I think I remember seeing that Linux-based systems use the ext4 file system.

I plan on setting up Samba so I can access and load files onto the 1 TB USB drive from my Windows laptop/tablet hybrid.

Finally, I’m a “GUI Guy”; how can I SSH into the Pi and have the GUI available to me in addition to the Terminal?

Thanks.  I’m getting there... slow and steady and trying to “stay the course”!
