Any services that I should turn off?  There are discussions turning off demigrator while streaming media playback.

I've never had a problem with the drive extender balancing process causing any slowdown in streaming. I think it runs at a pretty low priority so other processes will be able to run without too much competition for resources. For certain you won't have a problem with raw streaming, though I suppose it is possible that if the video needs transcoding, you MIGHT be affected. Especially if you have a pretty low powered server. But I'd say just try it and only start disabling things if you see any performance issues.

FWIW, the only things I've disabled are the built in media sharing since Serviio handles all of this for me.
