  1. I’m currently on 6.9.2 and I have an E3 1275v6 so that shouldn’t make a difference unfortunately. edit: current system specs:
  2. Were you ever able to figure something out with your Intel GPU causing lock ups? I’ve been having the same issue.
  3. AES-NI is required for version 2.4 and any future versions. They plan to maintain version 2.3 for a while to hold peopl over until they can upgrade their hardware. You could always use the hardware you have no and upgrade when you get some equipment.
  4. Why not just pick up a cheap standalone box to act as your pfSense router? Then you don't run that risk. Backup your configuration in pfSense and restore on your new hardware and it'll be like nothing changed. Edit: oops, just looked at your most recent post and saw you're looking to do this already.
  5. Can you give us the ability in the settings to set all the flags on our own? The -X flag to copy extended attributes is causing a ReiserFS error and thus causing a move to fail. I tried using my own flags but realized, after it failed again and looking at the logs, that putting custom flags in the settings page just adds those flags in addition to your standard flags. Please give an option for us to use only our custom flags. It’s not a huge deal. I’m just running the rsync operation from the command line for now.
  6. Seems to be working ok for me on 6.4.0. Thanks StevenD!
  7. When my parity was 8TB I used a Seagate Archive and then a WD Gold. Both were great but I did notice a bit of difference between the Archive and the Gold. I’ve since swapped the 8TB Gold for a 10TB Gold.
  8. Once it dies go with a Ubiquiti wireless AP. Goes nicely with a pfSense router.
  9. What about a Chromebook? There are quite a few RDP clients for ChromeOS.
  10. I’m using one of these with pfSense. It only had a single Intel NIC so I removed the wireless card that was in the M.2 slot, popped out the VGA port from the back, and put one of these in the M.2 slot. That was the only M.2 NIC I could find with an Intel chip. The cable for the network port is fished through where the VGA port was. A little jerry rigged, I know, but better than using a USB Realtek NIC. It’s been awesome.
  11. I used an HTPC for years, from 2008 to 2015, running various different PCs. Usually demo units I got free from work and I’d throw in a video card for hardware accelerated video playback until Intel started supporting that in their integrated GPU. I used XBMC/Kodi for playback. Once the 4th gen Apple TV, which finally supported apps, came out I ditched the HTPC and have been using those with the Plex app. Perfect setup IMO. Man this got me thinking about what I’ve used for playback since I started downloading movies/TV. In 2000 I started with a 5 disc DVD changer that su
  12. Thanks for that review link. That last one they list is pretty cool, though it won't be out until the end of the summer. It will have accompanying apps for most of the big TV platforms (Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, FireTV) plus your iOS and Android so you can get your broadcast channels in an app instead of having to switch over to the tuner input on your TV. Price is a little steep at $149.99 at launch but hopefully that will come down.
  13. Sorry to bump this thread from a month ago but I wanted to respond to this. If your concern is breaking news coverage of that type then why not just get an antenna? The broadcast networks are going to interrupt normal programming to cover any major news events and you can get them over the air for free with an antenna. You can get a 35 mile range indoor one on Amazon for $12.99. The talking heads of CNN, MSNBC and Fox aren't necessary for important news coverage. Plus, you can watch a lot of their content on their websites for free.
  14. We're pretty much and Apple(TV)/Plex only household here. We only have 1 TV and have a 4th gen Apple TV hooked to it. We use that for Plex and Netflix. For Amazon Prime video we have to AirPlay from one of our iPhones or iPads to the Apple TV. The big rumor this week though was that a native Amazon Prime video app will be coming to the Apple TV in June. Finally. We also use HBO Go and Showtime Anytime on the Apple TV thanks to a login from my wife's parents Comcast account. We also both sometimes watch Plex, etc. on our iPhones, iPads or MacBooks. We have no cable TV service. For c
  15. There's also a 15TB version. http://www.anandtech.com/show/10114/samsung-begins-to-ship-1536-tb-ssd-for-enterprise-storage-systems
