  1. I love how for the past decade, unRAID has made management, expansion, and dealing with a random assortment of hard drives an easy task for me. I'd like to see multiple arrays and pools, so I could make some optimizations between speed and number of drives for primary/secondary use.
  2. August 2009 is when I first started using unRAID so that's a decade! Not bad.
  3. I believe I'm experiencing this too. While on 6.7.2, when the mover runs, I had some big performance issues - notably with streaming things from an array drive on my LAN with Plex, but I also saw slowdowns with things like rsync. I am not sure what version this behavior started, because my mover generally only runs at 2am, however I transferred a bunch of data to my cache drive during the day recently, and manually started the mover and I noticed the issue (and so did my wife - "what's wrong with Plex?!"). I've not done any formal troubleshooting, but I did revert back to 6.6.7 and haven't experienced the problem again. I might have some time this week to experiment a bit more formally.
  4. If you have a Quadro 4000, a circa 2010 card, then it seems like it's a non-issue as that card doesn't support NVENC or NVDEC for hardware transcoding according to NVIDIA's NVENC and NVDEC support matrix. If you have a Quadro P4000, K4000, M4000, or RTX 4000, this NVIDIA plugin should be fine, since all these cards are supported by the 418.43 drivers. It sounds like you have a Quadro 4000 based on your description and needing older drivers. Is that right?
  5. Working very well with my Quadro P400. Thanks! Anyone know of a decent static build for ffmpeg that includes nvenc/nvdec?
  6. I had some issues with PIA's spain endpoint. Moved it to vancouver, canada and it seems improved for now.
  7. Anecdote, simply because I didn't do any rigorous testing, but just noticed it from my typical usage patterns - after 6.6.4/6.6.5 updates (not sure which because I applied them only 12 hours apart), spin down behavior seems like expected behavior.
  8. Looks good! One thing I forgot to mention: it requires python 2.7 so install that using the nerdpack plugin if you haven’t already.
  9. If you have these lines in your go script, they'll execute at boot and update youtube-dl and ffmpeg any time you boot unraid. If you want to manually update, your best bet is to just periodically re-run these same lines. Perhaps schedule them in cron or CA User Scripts plugin.
  10. You can simply download and install youtube-dl directly from their site and run it on unRAID. I also grab a statically compiled ffmpeg build as it's required for so many of youtube-dl's features. EDIT: First make sure you have python 2.7 installing via the Nerdpack plugin. Then stick these lines in your /boot/config/go script or execute them manually: curl -L https://yt-dl.org/downloads/latest/youtube-dl -o /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl && chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl && cp /boot/youtube-dl.conf /etc/youtube-dl.conf curl -o /boot/ffmpeg-git-64bit-static.tar.xz https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/builds/ffmpeg-git-64bit-static.tar.xz tar xvf /boot/ffmpeg-git-64bit-static.tar.xz -C /root && cp /root/ffmpeg-git*/ffmpeg /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg && chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg && cp /root/ffmpeg-git*/ffprobe /usr/local/bin/ffprobe && chmod a+rx /usr/local/bin/ffprobe && rm -r /root/ffmpeg-git* If you make your own youtube-dl.conf file, stick it in /boot/youtube-dl.conf and it'll be copied over at boot.
  11. 6.5.2 has been great. I'm really enjoying the ability to drop in to a Docker container's shell right from the GUI. I didn't realize how useful that feature would be!
  12. Oh, one more thing - is there any support for multiple controllers? I purposely disconnected my other one so there'd be no confusion, but it would be cool if the scripts could detect if multiple eligible cards exist, and prompt the user for which one to flash.
  13. Worked OK - had a few issues with DOS rejecting some of the 8.3/~ foldernames (unfortunately I've wiped my flash drive so I don't have any logs) Maybe renaming some of the long folder names might help. I just ended up running the commands manually from the .bat files. It took me a few minutes to realize why my keyboard was producing weird results - turns out I had inadvertently chosen the German option because my monitor autoswitches inputs sometimes when using the VGA port. I suggest the timeout in config.sys for that menu item should be a lot longer than 5 seconds (or disable it entirely and force the user to choose one).
  14. Same error here. Didn't occur in 6.3.5 and now it does in 6.4.1.
  15. I've been very happy with this update. Much faster than before, no weird system hangs if it runs when other stuff is happening - but it also helps that I took the time to exclude a bunch of cache and thumbnail files from my Plex backup. Still need to test restoring from it, just to be sure I didn't exclude *too much*.
