  1. That little thing would be perfect for OpenELEC or even a full Ubuntu/XBMC install. The Celeron they use in it is better than the one in the NUC too. I am going to pick one up and dual boot with OpenELEC and SteamOS if possible. That'll should last me until Nvidia decides to release a Shield Console then I will move to that. Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk Do you have a link to more info on this shield console? When I google it all I get is stuff about the handheld device. Nothing concrete yet, it was hinted last year during a press conference that they may decide to build one but it's not looking too good as of late. I think I might end up doing one of those knockoff android TV box and use both XBMC and LimeLight from XDA. Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  2. Normally that's a problem for most consumers but with the people in these forums, not so much Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk

  4. Hold off until later this month when the different ChromeBox models come out. More than likely, we will see OpenElec builds appear for it in no time. Granted its only a celeron CPU with a HD4000 GPU, it should be able to handle any video format along with any skins on it. I have a Foxconn AMD E-350 HTPC which by all means is slow as shit but it handles XBMC without any issues and any media format thrown at. Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  5. if you mean BTRFS RAID than yes. BTRFS have built in RAID functionality a direct replacement for Linux MD RAID and LVM you can create a BTRFS Volume spanning multiple devices in Raid 1/10/5/6 configuration. you can even have no RAID multi device spanned volume aka LVM style. best part , you can add device on the fly without stopping the system (providing you have hot-plug support on a hardware) I had setup my test server(work in progress hence the test part) using OpenSusy 13.1 using BTRFS /root on 1TB HDD as system drive after all install and update I added second 1TB HDD and expand the volume to it rebalanced/convert to RAID 1 setup (not 100% though as I am not sure how to setup grub to boot from either HDD, but it should be possible or so I have heard) it did all that on a running system. I did not have to reboot or even log-off. I was using the system the whole time doing other things like web surfing and setting up my second NIC. To make sure I am understanding this correctly. If I setup a Volume over 5-6 disks using a JBOD/LVM type setup then when their Raid5 becomes stable, I could theoretically rebalance/convert to Raid5? And to clarify/expand on my last question. If I already have a Raid5 volume with 5 disks and let's say I want to add another 1, I could do that unlike ZFS or conventional Raid5? Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  6. Nope. If it existed I'd have used it. Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk Are you sure, after researching a bit, it seems like iSCSI or FCoE might be the way to go for block level sharing along with the Xen Block Attach method. Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  7. Is there any protocol to mount a share from Dom0 and DomU without using NFS or SMB? I would Google it but unsure of what terminology to use to find it. Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  8. Please, do not run the Plex 64-bit server plugin. Its a Frankenstein of packages not even remotely official from the guys at Plex. It has been brought to their attention but they are waiting until unRAID 6.0 is in RC status before they release a official, tested package. Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  9. We are in Beta... Bugs / Issues are going to pop up that need to be addressed and fixed. Hence, the discount for a second unRAID License Key for those of us who have more than one server. If this is a production machine, wait till the next release to see if some / all of the bugs you are experiencing are worked out. i was afraid of that answer lol. Sad but true. Funny thing is I have the same exact setup from TAMs Solution 24-bay server with: unRAID with Sabnzbd+SickBeard+Plex Ubuntu for MythTV PVR Windows 7 for Assets Server No crashes yet Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  10. I wonder with BTRFS if a person can dynamically add a HDD and issue similar commands to add the disk to the RAID without destroying it and recreating it Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  11. In Ubuntu.x86-64.20130424.pygrub.cfg did you make sure to point to the location of the image? Along with the webgui, did you update to the latest webgui? Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  12. Did you make sure to turn on the bridge under Network settings and name the bridge xenbr0? Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  13. Would you kindly do a MythTV even thou its going to require x11 forwarding to setup? Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  14. Jowi - the Xen and unRaid levels are the same level in a sense. Sent from my LG-VS980 using Tapatalk
  15. For us weirdos that run our unRaid headless with no monitor, mouse or keyboard hooked up, what can we edit to default to the Xen/unRaid OS during boot? Is it as easy as opening the syslinux.cfg file and cutting and pasting the labels in different order?
