  1. Hi everyone, Unraid 6.8.3 I have an Asus x570-e motherboard with Ryzen 3950X CPU. Last version of the BIOS is installed. My graphic card for unraid to boot is GT 710 and then I have a 2070 super to passthrough to VM. The VM is Windows 10 64bit. I already encountered the following issues and would like to know if there is any other solution or workaround that does not require messing up with Kernel, which is something totally unfamiliar for me and I'm afraid touching it would likely just make things worse. > Temperatures are not detected by Dynamix Plugin. I found in the forums that again changing the kernel may fix this problem, but there should be another way to access at least the temps detected by the motherboard bios, right? I need some peace of mind that the CPU is not running hot 24/7. > Onboard sound Matisse causes VM to crash, Unraid goes unresponsive and an ungraceful reboot is required. > Mouse and keyboard have to be attached and dettached using the hotplug plugin in order to have them working everytime I start the VM. > No way to control the motherboard lights with Aura sync. The software just won't open from the VM, and if I install the Armoury Crate instead, it won't detect any compatible device. Dettaching and attaching the Aura USB controller doesn't change anything. Thanks in advance for your support. Not sure if this had to go to the Bugs forum or the general support. Sorry if I posted it in the wrong place. Kind Regards.
  2. Solved the part in which I add the GPU to the VM (it was IOMMU disabled). Now the problem is that the screen shows black when using the GPU (I'm testing with an NVIDIA GTX1060 6GB). I read somewhere else in the forum that you can't passthrough an NVIDIA graphic card as the only card in the system because Unraid uses it to boot up. Therefore I guess the answer to my initial question is that YES, you need 2 graphic cards unless you use an AMD card. Can someone confirm this?
  3. Hi again! I'm trying to add the GPU to the virtual machine but it does not appear on the list. When I check the tools tab of Unraid I see the graphic card is detected, but when I want to add it to the VM it is not on the list. I'm checking now the 2 gamers, 1 tower video in Linus Tech Tips and he says you need two graphic cards, one for unraid to boot up and another one for the VM. I'm confused because the CPU I'm using for testing has integrated graphics and everything works if I do not add the graphic card at all. My guess was that Unraid would use the integrated graphics to boot up and I could add the GPU to the VM. Some help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Thank you for your response. I'm sorry that I don't know much about how Plex works. At the moment I have an integrated GPU in my current setup and Plex does indeed transcode movies when they need to be played at a different resolution than original. If I did not change any of the default options, is the transcoding being done by the integrated GPU or by the CPU itself? To put it more simple, yes, I want Plex to do transconding, but I don't know if it does require a GPU to do the transcoding.
  5. Hi everyone, I've been using Unraid for quite a while in my server. Now instead of having 2 towers (one for my personal PC and another one for the server) I'm planning to merge everything into one single PC. My idea is using a TRX40 board with Threadripper 3960X or maybe a X570 board with Ryzen 3950X. None of them has an integrated GPU. Then my GPU will be an NVIDIA 2070 Super, fully dedicated to the Windows 10 VM that will be my personal PC. So my question is: if my GPU is working exclusively for the VM, do I need a separated one for unraid/plex to work? Thanks in advance for your help, and please let me know if I need to give more information. Kind Regards.
