  1. I'm going to go out on a limb and say its capable of Streaming 5, but its locked to only allow 3.
  2. Yep a lot of 3Streams listed.
  3. it might be something as simple as using "Direct Play" if your device supports it. I only mention this because my house has a lot of IOS devices and simply by switching to Direct Play my video's nearly never needs to transcoded. AppleTV, Iphone, Ipad. I think the only thing that ever needs to Transcode is some older .AVI files that I have that I never delt with. I also rip all my content to MKV, H264, DD5.1 with a windows machine and simply import into my unraid machine. I do have a GTX1050TI installed and hardly ever is in use because of Direct Play except with some of the older
  4. Told my son I'd build him a rig for Christmas and with Covid and supply chains being a bit slow I finally grabbed a Ryzen 5 5600X for him. He's coming from a slower Ryzen FX Processor that scores around 5000 on the CPU bench mark, which does ok with his 1660TI GPU. This really isn't unraid specific, but I'm trying to pair it with a decent, but affordable Motherboard that supports the AM4 Processor. Currently I do not have anything in the house that uses the AM4 socket so I would have to either hope and pray its Bios will support the 5600X out of the box or I'll have to pickup a che
  5. I know from Experience Corsair has a bad habit of changing power on their connectors and me/you having the burden of figuring that out at our expense. So I always make it a habit of never re-using power cables from the PSU to the device. I know you already learned this and know this and I'm sorry for your loss. Man that's rather devastating actually.
  6. I'd start from the basics and ask myself. What do all these drives have in common? Do they all share the same PSU, are they all on the same power cable? Molex to Sata Adapter? Are they all using the same controller like an extended Sata Card or plugged directly into the Motherboard? Are these the only drives in the Case or are there others that check out fine?
  7. I guess it really depends on how your using your Cache drive. Are you seriously moving so much data that you need to empty it so much or do you have so much simply siting on your Cache for instant access that you aren't moving it? You might just need to rethink how your using your Cache drive settings per share. Because you do have options. You can use your Share set to Cache only so no data leaves it. You can use your Share set to Prefer so it keeps it on it and when its full starts dumping to Array until your cache is empty enough then returns back. You can
  8. Over the years I've seen countless security suggestions/items brought up by @NAS and honestly half the time I don't even understand what he is talking about. I'd easily say he's a the biggest champion for security around here. Not that we all aren't, but he's always all over it and the discussions he has brought forward have been pretty lengthy in his findings. Honestly if any member sees a problem with Security on the system I'd highly recommend reaching out to a Admin/Moderator immediately so we can push it up and have it reviewed/addressed. If you feel your not being heard the
  9. You can also click and assign how long a delay between each docker starts. I have Plex my primary docker start 30seconds after boot and each docker after that 15seconds too. I figure it allows the system to come up a little more graceful and allow things to even out and reduce the hammering due to everything starting at once.
  10. Your run times honestly are very low. I'm in the process of swapping out some Drives that are 10years old.
  11. From what I remember that's normal. Otherwise there would be an error saying. If you close this box it will shut down the script. Simply click the close button it will continue running in the background.
  12. Ah, I didn't realize Safe Mode Disabled Array Start up. Nice to know. Well it makes sense calling it safe mode and all.
  13. Yes sir. Be careful and do some tests. I basically took what the website said and modified it to fit what your talking about. You need to make sure they are in the folder where you need them and I'm sure somebody else will pipe in. I don't use them often, but was showing you they aren't to hard to create.
  14. I was updating my post above when you replied. So it might explain a little more. I've been using unraid since 2009 and honestly I've never seen Nested Shares, but then again things have been evolving a lot lately. Lol
