    Thanks for keeping with this (do you have a Patron we can throw support your way?)
    I followed your instructions above. 
    DVB shows in Unraid ✓
    Tuners work in Plex ✓
    Nvidia GTX 1070 shows in Unraid ✗
    The Nvidia Unraid plugin still reports the following error 
    NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running. 
    And no cards show up. I don't know of any other way to get the UUID for the card other than to go to the plugin so I can't brute force test it with the docker. And I've verified that the GTX 1070 shows up in the "Tools > System Devices" page.
    Let me know what else I can check or test for you. (I'm a application software engineer but not a lot of experience in system software development but I'm comfortable in a terminal so i don't mind digging)
    Thanks for that. I'll have a think about whay to do next.....

    People have asked if I'll produce a combined Nvidia/DVB build.  Here's the thing, I have no intention of producing separate and combined builds, the workload is just too much for something I have no need of.  It would need 8 builds on top of the Nvidia build to do so.  I will however produce a combined build, depending on two conditions.


    1.  People don't mind an increased download size.

    2.  It works reliably.


    However I no longer have any DVB hardware so I can't test.  So I've produced some combination builds for people to try out.  I am only doing this for v6.7.1rc2, so if nobody tests each build then it's not going to happen.  So if you want it, YOU need to test it.



    1.  Install the Nvidia Plugin

    2.  Download the Nvidia build of v6.7.2 (Important - Do not use any other version and NOT the DVB version)

    3.  Once the build has downloaded and the window indicating the copying to flash has happened and before you reboot, download one of the attached zip files depending on which DVB build you use, unpack it and copy across the bzmodules and bzfirmware files to your flash disk.

    3.  Reboot


    I know that the Nvidia Plugin will not report the correct version number, that's an easy fix in the future if this works.  Once you've rebooted I need to know two things for each build.


    1.  Does the Nvidia hardware encoding work with Plex/Emby/Jellyfin?

    2.  Does the DVB hardware work?


    Note:  TBS-OS currently won't compile.  Nothing I can do about that.

    Actually by default  it is not!   The /lib/firmware location is an exception to the norm as it is mounted via the 'loop' device from the image held on the USB stick so in theory in can be updated and survive a reboot.   However there is no free space in the image so updating it may easily fail.  Even if you did successfully make such an update it would be lost when Unraid is updated and the bzfirmware file on the USB stick is replaced with an updated version.


    It was also stated that a umount should be run on /lib/firmware which would then preclude the image on the USB stick from being updated :)

    Well, yeah, I know, but @deviltje did say he did a umount before copying the file, so that will be in RAM.

    But where in unraid store the fw file after reboot it must be somewere i think? because stick still works after a reboot without the fw in lib/firmware.

    At boot Unraid mounts bzfirmware as a read only squashfs file system.

    I know, but somehow it find the firmware even after reboot or shutdown, and yes indeed bzfirmware is mounted after reboot. 


    Strange indeed because dvb-usb-it9303-01.fw is missing in the latest TBS (CrazyCat) DVB-S(2) & DVB-T(2)  6.7.2 builds.

    Just can't be possible.  /lib/firmware is RAM.  Reboot and whatever is there is gone.

    Ok found a workaround if you mis a firmware(error 2 ish), in my case install TBS (CrazyCat) DVB-S(2) & DVB-T(2) kernel and driver, reboot, now login to ssh and unmount bzfirmware: umount /lib/firmware check if lib/firmware dir is empty, now start winscp go to lib/firmware dir and upload the fw file, now reboot, and now firmware should load and all crazysat drivers are back incl. working fw.

    That doesn't make sense as any change you make to /lib/firmware will not be persistent across reboots as /lib/firmware is mounted at boot from bzfirmware.

  6. Fundamentally we're volunteers, so if you think something needs doing, feel free to step up and contribute rather than say something is a joke.

    Yes, I do hear comments like that all too often and I treat them all in the same way.

    When people pay my mortgage and feed my family for the stuff we do then they have the right to complain, because we then we have a customer/client relationship.

    But when people are using something, for free, made by us in our spare time, I reserve the right to use whatever language I see fit, as our relationship is most certainly not a customer/client one, essentially we have no obligation to do anything.

    One person saying something as non-specific as "PHP is a joke" does not a problem make, and is not something I'm going to waste any more time with.

  7. This docker is a joke. It is the second time I had to reinstall it completly because of PHP bullshit. It was competently impossible to downgrade and make it work. This happens around every 6 months. Can you please get it together and make sure the container updates the Nextcloud as well? Would be nice.
    Well f off and fork your own. Been running my install since we released without a problem.

    I got no time for comments like this and am going to treat it with the contempt it deserves.

    All the code is open source feel free to make a pull request, however, I've yet to see a single person make a comment of this nature actually do so, and I'm not expecting you to be the first.

    Remove your existing appdata, put a username in for GUAC_USER and try using this GUAC_PASS




    That's the md5 hash of an empty password

  9. I installed this docker through Community Applications, so didn't use my own docker run command, but the one that CA generated was:
    docker run -d --name='calibre' --net='bridge' -e TZ="America/New_York" -e HOST_OS="Unraid" -e 'GUAC_USER'='' -e 'GUAC_PASS'='' -e 'PUID'='99' -e 'PGID'='100' -p '8787:8080/tcp' -p '8788:8081/tcp' -v '/mnt/user/Media/Books/Library/':'/books':'rw' -v '/mnt/user/Downloads/Books/':'/import':'rw' -v '/mnt/cache/appdata/calibre':'/config':'rw' 'linuxserver/calibre' 


    Try setting guac user and guac password

    cool, thanks for the heads up.  I will keep messing with it, and keep an eye here just in case someone else might have solved this problem.  

    Could you give us more details on the form of the license?  Is it a text string you enter somewhere?   And if you can get OpenVPN to tell us where that information is stored a solution may be possible.

  11. latest reply: 
    Please be advised that running Access Server in docker is not supported. You may run int at your own risk.
    And yes, each time your container restarted your license key will fail. Re-adding the key will not help.
    I guess it is not going to work.  Before I ran it on my pfsense setup I thought I had it running flawless on Unraid a couple years ago.  Who knows maybe I am just doing something wrong.  
    It might work if you found the location that it is added to, could then conceivably add it to appdata and symlink it to it's desired location.

  12. Mylar stopped working properly for me sometime in April. Prior to that it worked like a champ, since then I've had maybe 5 downloads total. Logs attached, any ideas? Sab seems fine, Mylar has just stopped finding stuff, but can be found manually from my indexers no problem. Sonarr etc. still working fine with Sab. Thanks.
    Sounds like something you should be approaching the Mylar team with

  13. I reran ./download.sh and my 404s are gone. rebooting currently, then I'll confirm if DVB is working for me now.
    Edit: Still the same issues. Loading the plugin times out on the splash (no DVB version or driver version in the background), and I get a "no such file or directory" when I add "--device=/dev/dvb/" to plex.
    CHBMB, what do you mean in your instructions when you say "Then copy the files across to the flash disk."?
    Copy the bzroot bzimage bzroot-gui bzmodules and bzfirmware files to your USB stick from which you boot Unraid, replacing the existing files.

  15. As a user of Unraid NVIDIA _and_ tools using SQLite the delayed 6.7.2 Unraid NVIDIA release is a real problem here. We can't change back to stock Unraid. On the other side some important SQLite based tools don't work any longer. In fact it has bitten us because after applying 6.7.1 SQLite tools and SQLite dumps did overwrite backups with empty files. We simply did not expect that somebody would remove a tool like SQLite from Unraid.
    Now Unraid 6.7.2 is out and SQLite is back - but not for us. We have to wait for the Unraid NVIDIA 6.7.2 release. Going back to 6.7.0 without these additional security patches is no option either.
    So now we have lot of time to change our own SQLite tools to check for SQLite in Unraid before dumping data or whatever. New data is not coming into the house - so everything cool, no?
    Just some other 0.02 USD.
    It might be a real problem for you, it isn't for me, I've just got back from the hospital after seeing a very close relative for what may be the last time.

    That's a problem, with no solution.

    You could however downgrade to v6.6.7

    Might be helpful if you tell us what hardware you're trying to get working and what build you've tried There's no point in just keep trying the same thing and posting snippets of bash outputs, it has no context and I can't interpret that.


    The more information you can provide me, the more I can help, I'm busy with a lot of real life stuff at the moment, and that has priority, so when I see any post which doesn't have enough info, I'm filtering them out my brain due to time constraints.

    What is telnet used for because if its not used for anything than theres no need for it.

    Telnet is essentially a legacy system.  I suppose a basic analogy would be kind of an unencrypted SSH.

    That didn't get me an error message, but it didn't appear to do anything.



    Have you ensured this bit in the link I posted has been attended to appropriately?


    Make sure you use a text editor with Linux line endings and that they're set as such.  Notepad++ if you're using Windows would be my recommendation.
