  1. Just a quick follow up. After failing using Docker for Plex (unable to find the proper path for the Plex libraries), I have decided to install a dual 250 GB SSD as cache and to have Plex installed on it. On the bright sight side, Plex restarts automatically after a reboot, the main problem have been the necessity to rebuilt the whole Plex database. But now the Plex database is protected against loss by a Raid1 cache (if I understand the documentation right).
  2. PhAzE, I followed the instructions by the letter, and still does not work. I am sorry
  3. Before doing things with unattended (bad) consequences, please tell me how to do that: - Turn off auto mount of the array Don't be afraid to treat me like a retarded 5 years old
  4. >>Can you please post the output of mount at the console? ********* root@Tower:/# mount proc on /proc type proc (rw) sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw) tmpfs on /var/log type tmpfs (rw,size=128m,mode=0755) /dev/sdb1 on /boot type vfat (rw,noatime,nodiratime,umask=0,shortname=mixed) /mnt on /mnt type none (rw,bind) /dev/md1 on /mnt/disk1 type xfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime) /dev/md2 on /mnt/disk2 type xfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime) /dev/md3 on /mnt/disk3 type xfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime) /dev/md4 on /mnt/disk4 type xfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime) /dev/md5 on /mnt/disk5 type xfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime) /dev/md6 on /mnt/disk6 type xfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime) /dev/md7 on /mnt/disk7 type xfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime) /dev/md8 on /mnt/disk8 type xfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime) /dev/md9 on /mnt/disk9 type xfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime) /dev/sdn1 on /mnt/cache type btrfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime) shfs on /mnt/user0 type fuse.shfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,allow_other) shfs on /mnt/user type fuse.shfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,allow_other) /dev/sdj1 on /mnt/appdisk type xfs (rw,noatime,nodiratime,discard)
  5. Let's get back on tracks... I need a reliable way to get PLEX back and running after a power outage, without me being around. I see currently three possibilities to get this solved: - A modification in PhAzE brilliant plugin - Some command lines to be inserted in some files being run at the end of the boot sequence - Switching to Docker (still to be seen if this would solve the issue)
  6. If this helps... root@Tower:/mnt/disk1# cd / root@Tower:/# ls mnt appdisk/ disk1/ disk3/ disk5/ disk7/ disk9/ user/ cache/ disk2/ disk4/ disk6/ disk8/ disks/ user0/ My system was built from scratch over the years exclusively for hosting a Plex Media Server. And it works remarkably well. With my new internet provider (Spectrum replacing TWC) with upstream at 23 Mbps, I can deliver from San Diego to my kids in Texas, NY and Washington DC. So I will explore other routes before starting breaking up such a remarkable application.
  7. >>I would recommend setting "show storage memory usage" to 'no' Done >>Is /mnt/appdisk a share on your cache drive or array? No, it is a PLEX dedicated 240 GB SSD (see HC) >>When you run the app as user 'nobody', does it have the same problem? It seems that when it initially starts it can't read the Plex configuration XML file and starts fresh. Then when you restart the plugin it corrects the permissions. Done. Then reboot. No change.
  8. PhAzE, I am running the latest versions of your plugin and UnRAID (always). Plug-ins in packages are: root@Tower:/boot/packages# pwd /boot/packages root@Tower:/boot/packages# ls -lt total 14304 -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14596988 Oct 11 2015 perl-5.18.1-x86_64-1.txz* -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 41768 May 8 2010 inotify-tools-3.14-i486-1.txz* >>When it starts up, what url are you using to connect to when you see the welcome page? I don't know how to answer this question and where to look at. >>Also can you post an image of your settings page so i can check out where you're pointing the directories to? 3 screen-shots in attachment Thank you a thousand for not letting me down. You can send me a PM to avoid filling your thread with my garbage.
  9. PhAze, First let me congratulate you for you excellent work maintaining the plugins, specially Plex. I still don't see any reason to look toward Docker, which is good since I am a bit lazy, and when not broken, don't fix it. I have an issue though. Plex is my sole plugin. When I have to reboot the server, everything restarts fine, except Plex which displays the standard welcome page, not directing me to the PMS of the server. The remedy is simple, I have to go to Settings> PlexMediaServer>Stop then Start (on UnRAID GUI). How can I fix this? Even by inserting some command line in some files.... The matter is more important that it seems, as I don't know how long I will be around to maintain the family's PMS (small cell cancer, stage 4). Thank you for your help
  10. Thank you PhAzE. I did copy the old version along with the new version in /boot/packages on the flash key. Renamed the old one with the new name, removed the new version, I have never found the md5 file so didn't do anything on this, then rebooted . I worked. This fooled the autoloading of the new version. Still I would wish that it was more simple and that the auto-install of new version could be disabled. Any way, you earned your beer Thanks. PS: it just proved that the new Plex version (0.9.12) is buggy. The old version ( works fine.
  11. I have installed the new Plex Media Server version yesterday (version and it seems that there is a bug in the transcoder or whatever engine Plex uses to play movies. My latest Blu-Ray movie, Unbroken, ripped with Handbrake, is very pixelated in motion sequences. It's just an example, same thing for all my movies. I have no doubt there will be a patch in the future. Here comes my question: I am running the latest unRAID version 6.0.beta15, and the Plex plugin ( PhAzE) is updated automatically. How do I reverse to the previous Plex version? I have tried to re-install the previous version on the USB boot key in /boot/packages , but the new version automatically downloads and replaces it at boot.
  12. Thank you for replying to the question I never dare to ask. I was afraid to be the dumb idiot of the village But thinking twice about it... This should be explained as a front page in the UnRaid functionality. And THERE SHOULD BE A DAMN MANUAL on about how to install container with the GUI, and description of the use of the various fields (undocumented). I was promised an up-to-date documentation 3 months ago by jonp, and obviously this has never happened until now. So I installed the Plex plugin
  13. Thank you for not being dismissive or arrogant. I will put the switch toward V 6.0 for another time in the future, as I read that V 6.0 is ONLY 64 bits compatible and does not run 32 bits apps (like the current Plex non-plexpass version). Back to stable and documented V 5.0.5 now.
  14. No Matt, you are not alone... I share the pain. The GUI in Unraid 6.0 B10a does not match the posted pics. I have tried to enter the command line, but I have a message "--net: invalid net mode: invalid --net: tower". I have tried to use the GUI, but could not find any explanation nor tutorial on how to use it.
  15. Thank you guys for your posts. I did some research and went to the conclusion that XBMC and PleXBMC were the way to go. And there is no emergency to scrap everything for the sake of going 64 bits. I installed XBMC/PleXBMC and it works: I have DTS, 5.1 and faster loading. Still some minor little glitches, but, I consider this is it! To make life of other FireTV users easier... The solution for making FireTV working the way it should with your Home Theater as suggested in previous posts is XBMC and PleXBMC: XBMC (now renamed KODI) is a software which installs on the client side, ie FireTV. That means that the data received from the Media server is treated by a client or receiver (FireTV) executing a software program (XBMC) prior to be displayed on your TV and getting DTS sound from your AVR. Thus there is NO INSTALL of XBMC on your media server, just on the FireTV. To install XBMC follow the instructions there: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Amazon_Fire_TV This will install XBMC on you FireTV, but to use this program through the PLEX interface, you need to install an add-on: PleXBMC. http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=Add-on:PleXBMC Life is good
