  1. Newsflash: Google wifi is not the best router ever. There are many solutions that are far superior, aren't controlled by a crappy app, and can do simple things like port forwarding without needing sacrificial chicken slaughtering.
  2. Not sure why you're thinking you need to reboot for a network reconfig? (Hint: you don't).
  3. Emby's PVR functions are more stable than Plex. Emby's had it for years, Plex's is alpha quality at best.
  4. Also to note that the PSU with 3.3v line is the problem, only PSUs that do not have 3.3v work fine.
  5. "Last checked on Tue 23 Apr 2019 03:11:16 PM BST (yesterday), finding 0 errors. Duration: 21 hours, 45 minutes, 16 seconds. Average speed: 127.7 MB/sec" That's a 10TB Red as parity drive, data drives are 2TB 2.5" Blues (slow), a 8TB Gold (fast). The second 10TB Red hasn't been added yet. The NAS was in use, so a normal parity check should take a little less time. Each pair of 3.5" drives has an AsMedia PCIe to 2x SATA controller chip, I assume the 2.5" bays run off the SOC's SATA controller as I don't see an AsMedia on those: SYSTEM DEVICES PCI Devices and IOMMU Groups IOMMU group 0: [1022:1566] 00:00.0 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

  6. This. Unless you're running pure storage with no apps/plugins, it'll just run 24/7. Same as Synology.
  7. QNAP OS is fine, but having all the drives spinning all the time isn't what I wanted. Most of my data is pretty much stangnant, only getting accessed on rare occasions, so why have drives burning electricity for no reason? My NAS is lightly used during the evening, and does a little downloading overnight, but most of the time sits idle.
  8. Just a quick note that I've had zero problems running unRAID on my QNAP TS-963X 9-bay NAS. The machine has an AMD GX-420MC CPU (Quad core 2GHz), 9 bays (4x2.5" and 5x3.5"), an i210 1GBe and a Aquantia AQC107 1/2.5/5/10GBe NIC. I'm running 16GB DDR3L RAM (2x8GB sticks). All I did was plug my unRAID stick in the back, turned it on, and unRAID was up and running. I did later, however remove the internal DOM so it can't boot QNAP's OS again - it's just a little board that fits on a normal PC-like USB2 header. I'm going to use an internal-to-A adaptor to move my unRAID boot stick inside. For fan control, I'm just using the usual AutoFAN plugin from community apps, as the BIOS fan curve is a little aggressive as it's controlled by the warm CPU temp. There is NO video output on this machine, and indeed no GPU of any sort, so if you need to troubleshoot via console you're SOL. Thankfully I've never had to as "It Just Works(tm)". I'm getting great performance from the machine, and run a few light VMs on it, as well as Emby which transcodes one stream just fine. It's also happy to run Emby DVR from a HDHomeRun Quatro - it'll record 4 HD channels at a time no problems to a 2.5" WD Blue. Idle power consumption is low, too, at a little over 20W - happy with that for a relatively old SOC, 9 bays in a tiny form factor, with 10GBe and 16GB RAM. Details of the machine here: https://www.qnap.com/en-uk/product/ts-963x - they're around £600 in the UK which is pretty good value for a solidly built 9-bay.
  9. Mainly because they're big money compared to say an i3 on a server-style board. A Supermicro with an i3 on it will be cheaper and faster.
  10. I had the desktop version. It was a pile of crap. Hummed and buzzed 24/7 then blew up (smoke and all) the first time the power went off.
  11. If you're using QuickSync (which you should be), you won't need anything more than an i5-8400 or i7-8700 on a decent Z370 board. I can get 6 transcodes no problem with my i5-6500T and 20Mb upload, and the CPU hardly breaks a sweat (it's even passively cooled!). It's also running Plex DVR, and all the other stuff, AND a Windows 10 VM. That's just a 4 core 2.5GHz (turbo to a feeble 3.1GHz).
  12. Considering it's pretty difficult to find anywhere with decent stock of 10TB drives, I'd guess probably not. I'm still buying 8TB drives (mostly HGST Deskstar NAS, which are nice helium drives similar to the Red Pro). Had no problems with any of them, including shucked WD Whites (80EZZX) which are well over 18 months old now.
  13. Any decent quality board and an i5/i7 will do fine. I've been impressed with my reasonably priced Asus board and cheap i5. I run an Asus TUF Z370-Pro Gaming and an i5-8400 and had zero issues, it's fast and stable. Even has two M.2 slots for NVMe SSDs (one can also do SATA M.2).
  14. This method of modprobing i915 and passing that to Emby/Plex doesn't work on Coffeelake. I can't get it working on my i5-8400 at all. I'm likely going to shift back to my i5-6500T, and use the i5-8400 in my HTPC (to benefit from the better GPU).
