Since my previous post had 78 views and no responses, I’ll change the direction. As a n00b, if I am going to begin my journey with HA today (given current uncertainty), what is the best install method to grow from? This is a NUC which has a primary purpose of HA. I want the ability to generally use HA add-ons but in certain cases, might have need to use a function which is not assimilated such as VLC.
Currently, I am playing with HA core in docker on Ubuntu. Is there a benefit to consider HA as a VM on proxmox instead when beginning this journey? In my opinion and brief experience, the biggest drawback to using Home Assistant OS is that I am locked, in case for example, when I need to output media locally as run into last week on my Pi sandbox running HA-OS.
