  1. Create your directory folder tree on the cache drive, and then create a copy of that folder tree in another folder on the cache drive that is configured as "Cache only". This way your copy of the folder tree won't get moved. Any time you want to add files to your server, just copy the folder tree from the cache only folder to the root of the cache drive. Takes 2 seconds. This is how I personally do it.
  2. I use the Daapd docker almost daily to play music in my house. But I only interface to it with the "Remote" app on my iPhone.
  3. This is how I have been doing things for awhile. All my shares are set to Secure, with only my Cache drive set as Public. All auto-downloading (Sickbeard & SAB) and Crashplan backups work without issue, and all media players only need read access for playback. When I manually add files to my server, I put them on the Cache drive in folders matching share folder names so they get moved to the array by the Mover. (I have a blank folder hierarchy for my shares saved to a Temp folder on my Cache drive that is Cache-Only so it doesn't get moved. I can copy that folder hierarchy to the root of the cache drive and then places new files in without having to create folders with the exact same name as my share folders). And if I need to move files around on the array, I just temporarily change the Share to Public, make my changes, and then switch back to Secure.
  4. Buy a network based HdHomeRun, and you don't have to worry about pass thru, and drivers, and configuration, etc... Not worth trying to save a few bucks to use a USB tuner with unRAID if you are buying something new anyways.
  5. Because the average person is lazy! No work ethic with today's youth.
  6. That sounds like way too much work. Using Plex, you just pick what movies and TV shows you want to sync and it just magically works. Doesn't matter the file type/codec, Plex will transcode to format that will play on iPad. For TV shows you can choose the number of episodes to sync and choose just unwatched episodes. Then as you watch episodes from any Plex client, the next time you sync the iPad it will update and remove any watched episodes and add new ones. I use a very low video quality (I only have the 32GB iPad) so I can store a ton of movies/TV. On the small screen I can hardly tell the difference in video quality and the smaller file size allow me to load more than enough videos for my trips.
  7. If I am syncing a lot of files on my iPad, I plug in the charging cable and it will prevent the lock screen and allow it to sync everything.
  8. If I have my laptop with me on my trip, I just take either a large USB flash drive or a small WD Passport external drive loaded with video files (played with VLC Player). HDMI cable from laptop to hotel TV, IR dongle and remote so I can control everything without getting up. I also have an old WDTV device I will take if I don't plan to take the laptop with me. Works great to play files directly from the connected USB drive or device. Plays most video file types without issue. If you really want a portable Plex, I would look at the Nvidia Shield TV. It can run Plex Media Server as well as being a Plex Client.
  9. I don't use the plugin, but I use the OpenVPN docker. And if I am outside my network and connect via VPN to the server, I have no issues accessing the DelugeVPN webgui.
  10. I tried it and it doesn't work for me now either! This one is still working for me though (after updating to the latest version):
  11. There are a couple channels you can add to Plex that will allow you to watch Live TV from your HDHomerun. Here's one:
  12. You no longer need to load a special beta version of Plex to get the DVR features. You just need to load the latest PlexPass release of the software. Quote from Plex: DVR beta 5 has been released as part of the PMS 1.4.1 Plex Pass release
  13. Since you are using Plex on your Apple TV3, I assume you are using PlexConnect. This thread has instructions on getting 5.1 sound back.
