  1. Thanks for the feedback. I found out about the transfer a couple of years ago when I was swapping out USB keys, I bought my license all the way back in 2010, probably the best technology investment I've made. I wish I could have done things on my own terms, but I'll have to make it work. Thanks!
  2. So here's my situation, I have an older array (pushing 7+ years at this point) that is now starting to fail. I've kept up everything up to date, swapped some hardware and was planning on upgrading everything this summer, but that plan is now shot. I have a dead hard drive, there's nothing critical on these drives by any means, but I'd like to migrate everything to a completely fresh system. My storage requirements aren't very high compared to some other users here, so my plan is to build a completely new/fresh system with 3x8TB drives, a 500GB SSD as a cache drive and then use something like rsync to get everything transfered. In my current failing system my UNRAID array is 6x3TB data drives and an SSD cache. If I build fresh using a trial license would I be able to transfer my license over relatively pain free after my data is transferred over? I would think it'd be pretty easy, I just want a quick sanity check.
  3. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this, but I've had this issue going on for years; and frankly I forgot about it. When my mover script was invoked I'd get a HARD crash, a complete lockup. I'm never in much of a hurry to get things on the array, so I just changed my shares to exclude the cache drive and went along with life. I just "rediscovered" the bug when I was going through (after installing Unraid 6) and looking at my share configuration and put the cache drive back in play for my shares. Needless to say, early this morning the mover script ran and my unraid box was completely inoperable. Thankfully I remembered it was the mover script, and I found this thread today. This absolutely fixed my issue. Thanks!
  4. Love the Nerd Tools. Any chance on iPerf being added? Thanks for the hard work!
  5. You can just change the extension of them temporarily, or just move the plugins directory to pluginsold and reboot.
  6. Have you tried temporarily disabling your plugins? Also what directory are you storing your plugins?
  7. I went ahead and relisted these individually with a starting price of $59.99 + shipping; they can be found below http://www.ebay.com/itm/270916197066?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/270916197498?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 I'm selling my Icy Dock enclosures, I have them on eBay currently at $100 + shipping.

  8. I took apart my HP MCE USB IR adaptor and shoved it inside of my XBMC box. There was some soldering required, but I'm happy with the results. I ended up building a header and attached it directly to the motherboard. I've attached a picture, the white speck on the left is the "eye" of the receiver. It works great.
  9. Newegg has the WD20EARS for $129 with free shipping. Use the code EMCYRZS29 at checkout. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136514&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL041510&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL041510-_-EMC-041510-Index-_-HardDrives-_-22136514-LH1B
  10. XBMC is great (Boxee is based off of XBMC and is one of their main sponsors). I was able to pick up my Revo for $140, and it plays everything I've thrown at it (mostly HD mkv files). For reference I've also had the WDTV (pre-live version), I had the eGreat m34a NMT(similar to the Popcorn Hour a-110), and have also used the ASUS O!Play. I got tired of keeping up the library for the NMT, and the WDTV and O!Play's interface wasn't up to snuff for me.
  11. I was having these issues also, fortunately I found a fix that works for me... unfortunately the repair seems to take a little bit longer than what it used to. I've found that replacing the par2 executable with the one from here: http://code.google.com/p/unraid-weebotech/downloads/list seems to fix the issue. Like always, YMMV.
  12. Thanks for the help! The drive passed the SMART test without issue, and there was a loose SATA cable. It was perfect timing for my 5-pack of cables from mwave to show up. There also was a BIOS update dated 3/1/10, and now the ACPI errors are gone. I'll be keeping an eye on the syslog. Thank you guys again for your help.
  13. Hey everyone, I've just begun to dive into unraid (I'm not a stranger to linux, fortunately). Anyways, I've migrated my WHS to unraid, and currently now this is what I have: Intel DG41TY MB Intel Pentium E6300 1 x 1GB OCZ DDR2 800 Data 1 x 1.5TB Seagate ST31500341AS 1 x 1TB Samsung HD103UJ Parity 1 x 2TB Seagate ST32000540AS Anyways, I'm getting some read errors on the Samsung drive, I've copied my past bin here: http://pastebin.com/C8GyEUgt I'm looking on some advice on what to do with it, as you can see from the pastebin I also have a WD WD2002FYPS-01U1B0 drive that I was going to replace the parity drive with, but at this point in time I don't know if that would be a very smart move. Thanks in advance, Derek.
