  1. The only thing I'm doing differently is including the Resolution and the Audio. We all know Plex scans the video for Resolution and Audio. I'm including the extra for my benefit not Plex's. I'm grateful for your concern and mentioning it to me, but I'm not worried at all.
  2. All my Files are in the following format Movies Folder - Transformers-(2007)-(1080p)-(DTS) File - Transformers-(2007)-(1080p).mkv Tv Shows Folder Breaking.Bad-(2008) Breaking.Bad-_-S01E01.mkv I've never had an issue with Plex ever.
  3. As for the Can I swap out hardware. I'm on my 3rd Motherboard, 3rd processor, different RAM speeds/types and countless drives later after upgrading or simply loosing a drive because of hardware failure. I'm still using my 2Gig Cruzer drive that I installed unraid on 9years ago. Or maybe its 10 I don't really remember. Lol Oh yeah I'm still using the same Case too.
  4. I'm not as diverse as some here, but on your expander just make sure you shy away from MARVEL chip sets since they have been very known to be problematic with unraid.
  5. I'm running Mover Tuner Plugin, which tells my SSD (Cache) when to move my files onto my Array. So I have my files sit on my SSD for instant access for 2weeks or if my SSD hits 50% usage which ever comes first. Normally the mover triggers daily and moves cache files, but using Mover Tuner it bypasses the daily moving and will move when ever you tell it to. Why do I do this? Well I add a movie and my kids beat it up for a few days and after 2 weeks they seem to barely touch it. So in theory only when Plex scans my files looking for changes at 6AM daily my system pretty much is idling other than the SSD and moving of files now and then.
  6. I've been using unraid for 10years 12years. Now keep in mind your experience can very on how robust you try to make your server. If your using it for simple file storage and something like Plex Media server it works great. If you start throwing all kinds of custom configs running all kinds of crazy VM's and other things it could get really complicated. Just grab the trail and see how it goes. 😁
  7. You could request it in the Request section of the forum and see if it picks up any traction.
  8. MovieMatch Is there a way to sort the movies by last added vs Random? I ask this because when I add new movies to Plex the 4 of us normally have a little argument to which movie we want to watch that was recently added.
  9. Nice.... Lol I only suggested it Many years ago because it gave the Original Poster some power to say "My problem was solved and if anybody else needs the same info here it is."
  10. Many years ago I did a search on google for "Batch ISO to MKV" and found a command line script to run in windows and converted 50-60 files in a loop. Sadly I don't recall exactly what I used.
  11. Just tried the mover button per share. Worked great. The Amazing thing I was wanting to move some data, but I didn't want to move everything just today. Glad I checked the forum to see this.
  12. There was an update recently that added some additional settings along the bottom of the settings page. To Move files if the source is above 10%. Just set it to NO should fix it right up. Or you could adjust the settings to 60% or something else as a fall back. I personally just set it to NO for now. I might tweak it later.
  13. Well if that is new then I had files bigger than 10% of my drive so it moved them per the settings. I changed them to NO for the future and I'll see what happens. Not a big deal I just didn't know those settings existed and moved files off my Cache. Lol Is it possible to add new features and have them default to NO just to avoid future questions/issues. I'm not mad or anything, it just perplexed me when I fired up a Movie I ripped earlier and my drive spun up when it normally doesn't for 15 days. Looking at my Logs it looks like it did what was intended, I just didn't know about it. Lol
  14. Something change recently? I have my Mover set to move everything 15days old. Everything Moved. I haven't changed a setting in months. Is this New? Move All from Cache-Yes shares when disk is above a certain percentage: Yes Move All from Cache-yes shares pool percentage: 10%
  15. This is what I always do and I've not had any issues for a while. 1. Stop dockers 2. Stop array 3. Shut down machine
  16. No problem. I'm a believer in brute force until I get something to work. Lol
  17. I had a weird problem too. I logged out of myserver using the plugin, relogged in, noticed my allow remote connections was turned off. After a few times of logging out and turning on/off allow remote connections it fixed it self. Not saying that will fix you problem, but it fixed mine.
  18. Crazy unough I've typed unRAID so much that when I type unraid in my phone it automatically changes it to unRAID.
  19. I've never had an issue with any blockers. However its the first thing I think of "if" my GUI acts up. Id guess that there have been several instances of people installing all kinds of things in their browsers and honesty unraid can not be coded to solve every single possible instance of what users do.
  20. Its been highly recommended to move away from Marvel Expansion Cards because they have been extremely troublesome. I was having all kinds of disconnection issues and bad drive reports when I ran mine. When I switched to my LSI all problems went away.
  21. As well, I had an old Power Supply that was a little wonky and dieing I guess. I replaced it and all has been well for the past 5 or so years. 😃
  22. Try running this command in console. unraid-api restart It will turn off your connection and attempt to restart the deamon and connect again. Another way I found was to logout of the MyServer plugin, which is in the same area as the "Can't connect to Mothership" area.
  23. Just realized how old this post is. Lol Oh well. I have my system setup to run Parity every 1st of the month starting at Midnight and it normally runs until 9AM. I have (5) 4TB drives so its pretty quick and done normally without me even noticing other than a message I get via my email or via the webgui that it started and when its finished. I used to use the Parity Tuning Plugin because I was running some slower WD drives and I had it set start at Midnight and stop at 6AM and then restart the next day at Midnight and continue this repeat process until until it was done. Never had an issue and its pretty customizable. I do have a bunch of scripts on my machine that use the User.Script plugin to move files here and there and do other various things, but have them all set to NOT run during a parity check. In User.Scripts on each script you just add a little line that tells it to check for Parity running first. USB drive failure. Well I've heard of people having issues, but its simply a matter of backing up your /config folder literally anywhere or you could use the MyServer plugin and back it up automatically to the cloud. Don't like the cloud idea then anywhere you choose. I've been running a 2GB Cruzer stick for 9 years now and Its never troubled me once. The OS boots off the USB and puts the entire OS into Ram. Even if NUKE your OS for some odd reason it'll just reload on Bootup from the USB stick again. If your USB stick dies for some reason you simply request a new key and insert it into your drive and your good to go. There is a manual way and an automatic way to speed up recovery. unraid started from humble beginnings and has been growing at a rapid pace from its users who request or build things, devs who volunteer a lot of their time and some paid staff who keep the wheels turning. We have a lot of Active users who simply want to help, Moderators who volunteer a lot of their time as well. I can nearly Guarantee you will not find this level of pride and wanting to see You successful in your build than here than with any other solution.
  24. I restarted using unraid-api restart since I shut it down remotely and it seems to be working just fine. Thanks for the quick fix again.
  25. No worries. Funny thing thou is the last time I reported it which was several weeks ago you guys put out something and it fixed it. Unless you put out another release and forgot to put the patch back into the newest. Lol I mean crazier things have happened when your dealing with 1000's of lines of code. I did run unraid-api stop and now my drives are not coming up by themselves. Weird I'm still remoted in too. Must be the deamon that makes the connection, but doesn't actually control keeping the connection. Just another tid bit of info if that helps at all.
