  1. Hello gents, thank you both for replying. I ended up trying the USB Manager plugin first (as it was easiest...for me) and it worked a treat. Many thanks.
  2. Hi, I have a Windows 11 VM setup and running great. I have today plugged in my Ledger Nano X, added it to my USB devices list in the VM, unfortunately however the Ledger Live app within Windows does not see it, it just sits there asking me to connect it to the PC. Anyone have any ideas? I've tried all the generic ones on the Ledger site (turn off antivirus etc), but nothing works. I've tried other cables, but still nothing. Many thanks.
  3. Just finished making the switch in the bios mate, changed both from AUTO to 65Watts. System runs great so far, and the highest temp reached is 28 degrees. ๐Ÿ‘
  4. Top man, thank you! I just have the motherboard on default settings, I've certainly never made any changes to the PL1 / PL2 TDPs. I'll go and watch that video now and make those changes. Much appreciated, thanks. ๐Ÿ‘ Whilst I've got this thread open, can I ask you (or anyone else passing through) about; 1) Whether the allocated cpu pinning can be released back to the unraid system when the VM is not in use. 2) Secondly, regarding the banner that always pops up when I enter the "cpu pinning" page, is that ok to ignore, or have I made an error somewhere?
  5. I knew I had forgotten something. ๐Ÿ˜
  6. Hello all, I have an unRaid system with an i9-10900K, Gigabyte Z490 Vision G motherboard, 64gb ram and several HDD's. I run several dockers, mainly for media, including Emby, along with a Win11 VM which has a dedicated 2TB Sabrent nvme drive. This VM is off whenever I'm not using it and so it's allocated cores (12) are redundant the rest of the time (if there is a way to have unraid use these cores when the VM is off, that would be a bonus to my more pressing question below). I don't run it hard and everything usually ticks along fine, except for the temperature levels my CPU and motherboard reach, which when under load, can exceed 100+ degrees. I have ample air cooling, located in the loft, which is like an icebox, however to be extra cautious I have an AIO Kraken X53 arriving tomorrow to replace my Noctua CPU cooler. I have attached below how I have assigned cpu cores, however I am leaning towards there being an issue there that is causing the excess heat issue due to a banner always appearing at the top of unRaid when I enter the "cpu pinning" page that states "CPU Isolation: A reboot is required to apply changes". I have attached a screenshot of my Syslinux Configuration page as I read elsewhere that this may be the culprit, but I don't see the issue. Any advice as to where I may be going wrong would be greatly appreciated as I'm getting to the point of not chancing leaving the server running when I'm not at home for fear of the house burning down. ๐Ÿ˜‚
  7. For anyone experiencing issues with Nzbget hanging whilst unpacking, the below fixed it for me; ***Full credit goes to @MagicSG1, found a post of his on reddit.
  8. Hi, I'm sure this is a painfully easy question, but how do I disable the CD-drive in my Win11 VM? I have just updated to the latest RC and now the TPM is passing through correctly. As such, I want to enable Bitlocker, however it is demanding that I first remove all removable drives before it will allow me to proceed.. Many thanks.
  9. I think I would have shed a tear if it had been, as most of my cables are buried in the walls now. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thanks again for your help.
  10. Hello mate, Thank you for all of your suggestions. I started working through them and in the end I reset the router and all access points, readopted them and setup the UniFi Controller Docker so I could try and better see any bottlenecks, everything now appears to be running smoothly. ๐Ÿ‘ Thanks again.
  11. Hello, Thank you kindly for replying so quickly. My connection is wired, however I have also tried via 5GHz WiFi and I am having the same problem. For reference, I have two of these WiFi access points in the house; Ubiquiti
  12. Hello, Apologies if this is in the wrong section, wasn't quite sure where to ask. I'm running unRaid on a Gigabyte Z490 Vision G motherboard, Intel Core i9-10900K, 64gb ram and Cat8 cables throughout the house. I have my server and WAN connection going straight into an UBNT EdgeRouter X and then that feeds into a Linksys LGS116V2 (16 port), which the rest of the house is connected to. My issue is whenever I try to "direct play" 4K files via Emby/Unraid, some work but most of the time they buffer/stutter and some even display no image. The video bitrate averages between 75-100mbps for the movies. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but shouldn't these be playing without issue? For reference my unRaid server is doing nothing else, just streaming when I'm having these issues. If any further information is needed to help diagnose the problem, please let me know.
  13. Hello all, In the end I decided to use the free option that Bitwarden provides and backup to their servers. I didn't want to run the risk of needing to gain access to my server and there being a connection issue.
