  1. Unless you specifically created a share for the archive stuff and limited it to a particular drive, you'll never really be able to limit read/write/delete. Maybe that's what you had planned anyways? But by default the way Unraid works is you could potentially have your archive tv shows spread across 4 disks and not even realize it. Shares don't 'need' to be mapped in Windows.. but it's the most convenient way to access them... in my opinion. If they're accessed infrequently then I guess it doesn't really matter. I access multiple shares frequently and therefore have them mapped as network drives.
  2. Windows. If you wanted to use Unraid for creating folders you'd have to use the command line, krusader, mc, or any other file management tool........... Windows is just easier since you're using it anyways. You can do it that way if you want... it's personal preference. Unraid doesn't care what share you have files on. In practicality though, do you want to have to map 6+ network drives in Windows? Unless you just access everything through \\unraid... but personally I have all my media on a media share, and that share is mapped to a single drive in Windows. Again, all personal preference. So this is where your personal preference makes things sloppy.... I personally don't see a reason to seperate current/archive tv shows. Sonarr doesn't care what you're watching/not watching, and any media player you're using should show you what you are currently watching, what you have left to watch, and be able to hide things that you've already watched ("archived"). Here's what I would probably do... Set Sonarr's media path to /mnt/user/TV SHOWS/current, add another path for archive. Then in Sonarr add all the shows from the archive using the import existing series on disk.... which would be accessible under /archive from my example and check that everything adds correctly... which it should. Then do the same thing for current shows, using the default /media location.. This method will never automatically update anything in archive. If you move a show from current to archive, Sonarr will still think it's in current. You'll have to manually change the path in Sonarr to reflect that it's been moved to archive. Other than that, this should give you what you want...
  3. I see this is going to be never ending... just take my point and accept it and move on. You said "I've had to go an remove the container, delete the database and redownload." ... when you ONLY need to delete the database, you don't have to remove or redownload the container. Stop container, delete database, start. Finished. So no, not "exactly" what you said you were doing. And my mistake, I don't look at github just to prove a point. The last time I looked at the github page nothing had been updated in quite some time. You certainly wouldn't know of any developmental changes by the lack of communication or responses by the dev regarding the multitiudes of bugs/suggestions in this thread. However, the last docker update, which is the only thing that actually matters, was 6+ months ago. Let me rephrase for accuracy so you don't point it out to try and prove me wrong, the "latest" tag is still 6 months old. Anyways, enjoy.
  4. I agree, but there hasn't been any development on this in over a year so we have to make do with what we have...
  5. So if that's what you'd rather do then ok, but it's certainly more hassle then setting the very few options there are. Also you can use your imagination and only delete the unmanic.db file and retain the settings.json file so you accomplish both deleting history and retaining your settings. I'm sure you could have figured that out had you looked at the directory first. Sent from my SM-G981U1 using Tapatalk
  6. You have to turn off subtitles encoding. Sent from my SM-G981U1 using Tapatalk
  7. You only need to delete the contents of the appdata folder for unmanic to clear out any history. Sent from my SM-G981U1 using Tapatalk
  8. Start here. https://www.osboxes.org/android-x86/ Might not work very well though.
  9. So while I'm not an expert with Unraid's encryption routines ... I've had my own share of troubles using it.... for 2020 the entire encryption thing should be worked on... that'd be my request. Somehow improve the entire operation. So here's a couple thoughts on it.. you said you saved the key to 2 files ---- on Windows? what file format? If it added any Windows line endings (invisible to you, but not to the computer) it can mess it up as it would basically include the line ending as part of the key. When you open a command window, and go to /root/ is a keyfile present? If so, 'nano keyfile' ... does it contain your key? If there is no keyfile present after trying to start the array then welcome to the world of Unraid encryption bugs... (in my view) Instead of using the key file you can try starting it as a passphrase instead... not sure if it will work with 64 characters though for the input.. So, you can try back on the command line........... if the keyfile is there, delete it. This is what I've found to force restarting the array with a keyfile .. without rebooting the entire system.. echo -n 'PASSWORD' > /root/keyfile && CSRF=$(cat /var/local/emhttp/var.ini | grep -oP 'csrf_token="\K[^"]+') && curl -k --data "startState=STOPPED&file=&csrf_token=${CSRF}&cmdStart=Start&luksKey=/root/keyfile" http://localhost/update.htm If that works then you know your passphrase is good and it's just a problem with your keyfile
  10. I don't know the specific quality settings it uses. I suppose if I really wanted to figure it out I could dig through the source code but I'm not sure if that would really gain me anything, other than just knowing. My experience is that 95% of my conversions the output file was of a smaller size with no perceivable visual differences upon a quick check on my 24" 1080p LCD using Potplayer on my PC. The other 5% resulted in a larger file then the original, but no quality loss. When I refer to quality loss I mean that I don't see any artifacts or blurring that would indicate a low bitrate encode. I do not mean that I'm taking a 4K source and converting it to a fraction of the size and it still looks like 4K, know what I mean? Sent from my SM-G981U1 using Tapatalk
  11. Did you forget your password?
  12. Ah, it has been quite a while since I actually used RealVNC, changed to TeamViewer to get around the ports issue with RealVNC.. The last time I used it you needed open ports. Sent from my SM-G981U1 using Tapatalk
  13. If the Pi is connected to the PC, and it is behind a router without port forwarding, how would you connect to it? RealVNC would require an open port. @gfjardim just posted this on the forum, and seems very much like what you want to do... have not looked into it deeply but I bookmarked it for future reading because it was interesting. https://pikvm.org/
  14. @housewrecker have you changed anything with the RSS feed output? As of late I haven't been able to import the missing list in Radarr...
  15. Those would all be wrong to start... because linux is very specific on the format of things... there's no such thing as mnt/user because it would actually be /mnt/user/ with a preceeding forward slash.. maybe you just left that out while writing and actually know that already but figured I'd just point that out in case... No, everything exists already. No, /mnt/ is not under /root/. Open a new console window, you might see root@TOWER:~!# assuming your user name is root and TOWER is your Unraid name. type ls -- you probably only see mdcmd@, right? This is your root directory.. it's not really used for anything at this point.. that I'm aware of. type cd /boot and then ls --- that's your flash drive. you shouldn't really do anything here, just showing you a location. now type cd /mnt and ls -- now you see your disks. type cd user and ls -- now you see your shares. from /root you'd type cd /mnt/user to get to your shares So in the case of creating a VM, I'm not actually sure what your problem is .... in the template you'd select an existing iso which would look like /mnt/user/isos/ubuntu-20.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso
