  1. I picked up a 22" monitor on sale as my 17" only had VGA input. Also picked up a new video card cheap to be for unRaid. New monitor and GTX 460 for VMs. Different mouse and keyboard. Still have to take stuff out of my working PC and put it all together. I am just waiting on my 2 x 8GB DDR3 ECC memory. I hate UPS. No one was home, tried to get the delivery to a UPS center but by the time it was done it was too late. Now Monday after work. Sent from my XT1563 using Tapatalk

  3. I am thinking I will need to get a cheap Video card for unRaid. I think a new monitor with 2 HDMI inputs too. Sent from my XT1563 using Tapatalk
  4. Won't he also need to pci-stub the Nvidia card? PCI-stub Nvidia card? Sent from my XT1563 using Tapatalk
  5. METDeath, The PCIe card is a Nvidia 460 GTX. What do you mean by, "if it's AMD based you won't need another GPU in the mix"? If I use my my Nvidia PCIe GPU, I will need an AMD GPU also? The ASUS M5A97 R2.0 has no integrated GPU. Thanks, Paul
  6. Can unRaid support the nMedia PRO-LCD-B panel? It plugs into an USB header. It works under Linux with LCDproc. Use it to show CPU, RAM, Network stats etc. Good for headless.
  7. HellDiverUK, I saw in your post from last fall you use the same MB & CPU combo. I am just starting to put together unRAID 6 on my current system: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0, AMD FX6300, Nvidia 460 GTX, KINGSTON SHSS37A240G SATA SSD, 3TB WD Red from a linux box, spare 3TB WD Red. Any tips for the above MB and CPU combo? All 6 Sata ports will be used up with 2 SSDs and 4 SATA HDs. What is a low cost option & easy compatibility for a SATA card so I can attach my existing DVD drive? So far gathered the following new items: Waiting on 2 x KVR16E11/8HB - Kingston 8GB Module - DDR3 1600MHz ECC Server Premier. Waiting on StarTech.com USBMBADAPT2 2-Port USB Motherboard Header Waiting on SanDisk Cruzer Fit 8GB USB 2.0 Low-Profile Flash Drive- SDCZ33-008G-B35 Will I be able to do hardware pass-through with the Nvidia 460 GTX video card? I want to run KODI in the forground, would that be a VM? Do need a 2nd cheap Video card to be assigned to the boot up? This is hopefully to replace an Ubuntu KODI system that has no hard drive data protection. Already lost a Seagate 1.5 TB drive, found out later it was one of those drives from 2009 that needed a new firmware to help with Seagate's bad drives. Also backing up to Crashplan, anyone have tips for unRaid and Crashplan to restore data and possible reorganize the restored backup?
  8. Current setup: Ubuntu 14.04 AMD II X6 1090T Nvidia GPU 4 gig ram OS HD 2 data drives(movies, TV, etc) KODI 16.1 Background processes: Plex Server MythTV backend(sends HTTP post commands to Win 7 machine to change channels) Flexget with Deluge torrent server Linux Peerguardian IP filter MCE USB IR receiver for KODI Windows 7 machine: Eventghost hosting a webpage that sends channel changes to an USB-UIRT IR transmitter to change channels on the PVR STB. Does unRaid allow certain USB devices to only be assigned only to certain apps? I could never get the USB-UIRT USB device work in the Linux box. It could of been because of the MCE USB device. Weird that I had to make a web page on a Windows 7 machine to change channels for the MythTV PVR. I want the protection of Raid as I have lost hard drives in the past. What is my first step to get started with unRaid? Thanks Paul
