  1. Hey all, sorry to create a new topic but my Google-Fu is failing me Recently setup an unRAID box and it's been great One annoyance I've noticed though is SMB stops working after creating a new share, I need to restart to bring it all back I couldn't find anyway to restart smbd manually but could be looking for/trying to do the wrong thing Could someone please advise how to restart the service (if that is in fact the issue) rather than restarting the whole box? I'm on 6.9.2 Thanks
  2. Brand new. Sealed in box from my local computer parts store. Ah well, I'm not too concerned. It works well in HandBrake so not a total loss.
  3. The Matrix is being weird (not transcoding and glitching back and forth) but I've noticed TLotR is using a lot more VRAM! +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | NVIDIA-SMI 470.74 Driver Version: 470.74 CUDA Version: 11.4 | |-------------------------------+----------------------+----------------------+ | GPU Name Persistence-M| Bus-Id Disp.A | Volatile Uncorr.

  4. Thanks guys Yes, I have setup RAM cache via 2 different methods to test Just worked out that /tmp for some reason wouldn't work (I swear it used to) so used /transcode --mount type=tmpfs,destination=/transcode(tried /tmp as well),tmpfs-size=8000000000 --no-healthcheck (path was definitely matched in Plex transcoder settings) Also found the alternate method last night which I was testing by mapping /tmp to /transode via path (no issue with that either as I have quite a lot of RAM) Tried disabling RAM cache and playback was even worse erroring almost immediately Will try Jellyfin and report back
  5. I've purged the Codecs folder and increased the buffer to 300 seconds again. Passengers and TLotR seem better but The Matrix still crashes soon after starting playback. Also, not sure if you noticed from the screenshot but I'm only in an 8x slot. Did see that bandwidth on the P400 is only 32GB/s but should still be okay on an 8x slot, yeah?
  6. Appreciate all the help. I did see others recommend deleting/renaming the Codecs folder as I did get a Codec error when trying TLotR but seemed okay after restarting. I had played with the buffer as well (increased it to 5 minutes) but it's back on 60 seconds. Definitely seems like a buffer issue though as I can see it catch-up on the playback bar and that's when it errors. But usage on the GPU is only ~600MB.
  7. Okay, so seems the card isn't up to task and I'm an idiot for wanting to transcode 4K HEVC Have seen the T600 recommended for this but I honestly shouldn't need it/it's not worth the money Just tested ~6 simultaneous 1080p transcodes and the GPU didn't even break a sweat
  8. Just the one transcode, not tried simultaneous. Tried with The Matrix and The Lord of the Rings. TLotR plays for a little bit longer but still gives the same error.

  9. Thanks for the prompt responses! Ah, sorry. Was just trying to give the examples of 4K movies. The error is during playback. It'll pop-up and I get the option to retry. I'm testing on the web as other devices will direct play, just wanted to see if transcoding was working properly when/if needed. Unfortunately they're still ~$100 more than the P400 in Australia. I paid $179 for the P400.
  10. Hey all, got a question regarding my setup. Had been doing a bit of research on which card to get just for Plex/Tdarr/HandBrake and decided on a Quadro P400. I did want to get a 1050Ti but they're scarce and the Pascal Quadro's are still in stock. The numerous threads and questions on Reddit I'd found said I shouldn't need anything more than a P400. Just finished setting it up and it's definitely working but the 4K files I've tested throw a Playback Error: An error occurred trying to play "$MOVIE". Error code: h3 (Decode). This can vary from 10 seconds to 5 minutes. Looking at the GPU stats, memory is fine but load is maxed out. With Plex, I've set the transcode directory to RAM using the path option. I did have the --mount type=tmpfs,destination=/tmp,tmpfs-size=8000000000 entry in Extra Parameters (and set the transcode directory to /tmp) but found it wasn't reliable, was testing this with Live TV & DVR using Telly and it would error most of the time. Could this be an issue with Plex or is the card not up to task. I'm on the latest version ( of Plex and the latest nVidia driver (470.74).
  11. Hey all, just wanted to show my appreciation for this product and the amount of support and guides out there (especially the content from Ed/Spaceinvader One, goddamn!). I recently picked-up a free PowerEdge R520 which was decommissioned at work. Had wanted to do either Proxmox or ESXi but figured I'd check-out unRAID after hearing so much about it (thanks LTT). I currently run a basic TrueNAS box which hosts Plex and Transmission plus shares etc. so was somewhat limited as far as ease for setting up RancherOS (or an Ubuntu VM) and playing with Docker. I love that unRAID makes Docker and VMs so easy for simpletons like me. I've already setup a Mojave VM using Spaceinvader One's guide (which has since replaced a Hackintosh so that hardware has gone to my housemate who's quite happy with an upgrade), Windows 11 VM to test out & a Windows 10 VM for work which I was able to make compliant by setting up swTPM. Still waiting on my second processor and heatsink but the box runs like a dream and is very quick after setting up a cache SSD and dedicated virtual disk SSD for the VMs. It was easy enough to flash the Dell PERC and also found details on setting fan speed via IPMI! Was great to see just how much info is out there and how large the community is, goes to show just how good the product is. I'm only 5 days into the trial period but will be slamming that cash down shortly. Cheers, JB.
