  1. I'm not sure if its just me or what. Running 6.9.1, but I also noticed this at 6.9 too. 


    I set my Mover Schedule to hourly and hourly my drives spin up and nothing happens since my Settings for Mover Tuning are set to 10% at 20Days. Of course my files are not 20days old so they shouldn't be moved, but why spin up some drives?


    I decided maybe its just a fluke. So I set my mover to move at 21:35. I waited and sure enough my drives spun up and still nothing moved because it shouldn't be moved since my files are not 20days old. 


    This is what is in my Logs at that very moment:

    Apr 8 21:35:08 Tower emhttpd: read SMART /dev/sdg
    Apr 8 21:35:30 Tower emhttpd: read SMART /dev/sdf
    Apr 8 21:35:31 Tower emhttpd: read SMART /dev/sdd
    Apr 8 21:35:38 Tower emhttpd: read SMART /dev/sdc


    Odd thing is its only spinning up (4) of the (6) Drives (1) being parity and the other (3) are data drives. The drives that are being spun up very well could be where the data was to be stored "if" they was moved.

    @ich777 It looks like unraid 6.9.2 updated the linux kernel to 5.10.28 and since you do not have a realease for that on your github at then when you install the plugin you get:

    ---------------Can't download libreelec-DVB-Driver-Package-----------------

    Since it does 

    KERNEL_V="$(uname -r)"

    in the install script to find the download URL to use.

    Can you make a new release for the new kernel?




    Keep in mind he's probably sleeping. ;)

  3. Is there a command line or can there be to enable/disable remote connection? This is why I ask. If I can schedule remote access while at work and disable while I’m home it would be really nice. 

    it’s a personal feeling, but I’d like to be able to schedule a turn on/off when I’m using remote access vs leaving it on all the time. I could use a cron script via User.Scripts or a built in scheduler via Plugin. 

    I have other ways of logging in to enable/disable if this isn’t a possibility or doesn’t make sense. Just a future feature request of sorts. ;)

    Yeah, I have a similar backup strategy. Might still set this up as a secondary backup. No such thing as too many I guess. Thanks


    Check this out.  You can register a new USB to your account if you loose your old from your backup, by clicking a button.

    I really haven't had a chance to research this question and it may be answered in the wiki but is it only the flash that is backed up or does it also backup the other items that were covered by the CA Backup/Restore plugin? libvirt image and appdata IIRC.


    Basically its backing up your USB stick. I see my docker xml's in it along with my Plugin's and Config files. 

    I personally back up my Cache/system/appdata to another smaller SSD in its own pool. Why do I do that? I backup my appdata once a week and I Figure if there is a BIG change to my appadata I could easily restore it from a daily snap shot. 


    I don't run VM's as of now so I couldn't tell you if any of that data would be on the Flash of course if you run User.Scripts those are on their too. 


    Has anybody else tried using it? Backup and Restore? I'd guess this is the place to bring up suggestions and problems if there are any. ;)

  6. Just tried the USB Backup portion of MyServer's. I've made several changes over the past few weeks and it looks like the USB Backup has been keeping up just fine. 


    I just grabbed a copy of my USB stick and I'm pretty confident I could restore and start it right up. 


    I even included a txt file of my drive assignment using a script I found in User.Scripts so if I had a problem I could easily figure out which drives are where.

  7. YES!!!!


    You want to always leave the maximum amount of battery you can on your UPS. Draining a UPS can shorten its life, but if you have 25minutess in reserve and decide to wait until you have a few minutes left, what happens if your machine hangs on shutdown and doesn't make it entirely and dumps. 


    I think I have 25minutes in reserve too. I probably should look at how much time I have with all drives spinning. Lol

    I have mine set if I loose power for 5minutes begin shut down. 


    I have another UPS with a 3D Printer connected to it and I have it set that if i loose power keep on printing. Its saved 2 prints so far because of a temp power outage. Sure I might loose my UPS on that machine eventually, but its easier to buy a new UPS than try to salvage a 60hour Print. 😂

  8. You can use the Unassigned Device Plugin to manage your devices, but that's getting kinda sketchy in my opinion to rely on USB for all that.


    Personally I'd get a case and drop in a LSI controller card and run it in IT Mode. unraid doesn't like RAID cards very much because they can cause problems.

    When I has this issue over a year ago, the guidance was to delete the entire codecs folder.  That forces Plex to download again any needed codecs as they are needed.  The EAC3 codecs seem particularly prone to getting messed up.  This completely resolved my Plex audio issues and I have had none since.  YMMV.


    Thank you. I'll backup the folder and give it a deleting and see if things come back. Sounds like I have some homework tonight. ;)

    You can delete the Codecs folder and it will be re-downloaded. In my case it's at

    /mnt/user/appdata/PlexMediaServer/Library/Application\ Support/Plex\ Media\ Server/Codecs/


    Thanks. I'll copy that folder, delete it and give the plex server a reboot. I figured I could just search the Plex folder. I just didn't want to over delete things and drive the family crazy. lol

  11. Interesting. I've been having issues all of the sudden playing direct playing anything that is EAC3 on my AppleTv. So to get around that I've been using Tdarr to convert things to AC3 which my receiver supports very well. 


    Sure I'm guessing my AppleTV or Plex has been converting EAC3 to AAC on the fly, but recently it just sits there and does nothing. Lol


    Maybe it is a Codec thing even on my end too. So are you simply deleting the entire codec folder or specific files? My issues might not be the same as yours too, but I figure since I've stumbled onto this topic I might as well ride the wave some. 


    I'm using the Official Docker from Plex FYI.



  12. My best for a Linux machine was 4years. ;)


    We moved and I thought it was safer for me to shut it all down than to carry the UPS and pray the drive didn't get bumped in the back of my car for the 15minute drive. lol
