  1. Because I really don't fully understand the potential issues with this, I chose to make my cache a 2tb mechanical (2.5in) drive. I picked up a higher end laptop mechanical (7200rpm) drive that was well reviewed on a couple hardware sites. No issues that I've seen, but I don't actively monitor the performance of my server.
  2. If the budget isn't a barrier, why bother with consumer grade? Move up to a dual CPU server MB with a pair Xeon's and ECC memory. Greater expansion, more power, more room to handle unanticipated needs.
  3. You really should not transcode a 4k stream. It is the single most expensive process you can try and does not produce a good result. If you can't direct play it, consider making other versions. Plex can make "optimized" copies itself, that it stores in the same folder as the original.
  4. My 1x slot was physical 1x slot. I used a 1x -> full sized pcie adapter/riser card so my video card would fit.
  5. You can move your current cheap GPU to a 1x riser card and it will still work fine for the local OS video needs. My 3 full-sized slots are taken by HBA/NIC cards so my cheap-o GPU moved to a 1x slot on a riser card.
  6. I was under the impression that Unraid must have a GPU to boot and that there must be a separate (2nd) GPU for the VM.
  7. Yeah, I didn't think about preserving them until I had rebooted. Hopefully I'll remember to do it if next time happens.
  8. I use paid zoho - $36 for 3 primary accounts, each with multiple aliases. So my home domain, and my family domain are both available to send and receive, my dev related domain, and my 2 app related domains are on a 2nd paid account, all received in the zoho email app on IOS or web client. Using the zoho email client on my iphone, I can also send from any of my email addresses. Using the default IOS mail client (really, anything other than the zoho mail app), I can only send from the "main" email address - so far, although I'm still digging into this limitation. Mxroute looks interesting, but it doesn't actually look like it will save me any money. I looked at Gsuites, but we don't need the rest of the features because we get Office 365 for free (for now).
  9. I use zoho. G-Suites from Google was an alternative I looked into. None of the others I looked at were close in price.
  10. After about 9 years of using Unraid, I experienced my first set of seemingly bizarre issues. It seemed to occur overnight: 3 docker images disappeared, 2 other docker images quit functioning, 1 docker image showed as orphaned, 1 data drive reports no file system, and random CPU spikes hitting 100%. Plex and Jackett dockers disappeared. Deluge quit working (I could get into the UI for it, but all downloads reported errors). Tautulli quit working (It showed as running the but UI wouldn't load). Radarr docker showed up as orphaned. One data disk now shows as having no file system. I dug into the logs as best as I could, but I really didn't see anything obvious. After shutting everything down and rebooting, I have restored/re-installed the dockers as appropriate, kicked off a long smart report on the drive and it seems like everything is working again. No other drives report errors or are missing or anything like that. The dockers/apps that I re-installed all picked up with data intact as if nothing had happened, and the CPU spikes seem to have stopped. I will be testing drive 12 (the drive missing the file system) more to see if anything else turns up - but the smart report is clear for it. I'm at a loss to explain what happened, so if anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them.
  11. There are a couple of reviews for it on Amazon... in German.

  13. It's the only GPU according the info you have listed. I believe Unraid requires its own video card in addition to the one you want to pass through.
  14. Hi! I have this running on my server now, but I'm not sure how to actually do what I'm after. In your wiki documentation, you mention your plugin stack: Is that available somewhere? It is very close to what I'm trying to do.
