  1. I've used unraid since June 2011, the same month my twins were born. I'm not sure how I got anything done back then, but I've been really glad to have it! My favorite feature has been using it with Plex. The reason I got into unraid was to hold all my DVDs because my little kids had a tendency to scratch the disks up. I've been really pleased with the community and software ever since!
  2. Switchblade, you shouldn't need the Light version from this plugin. According to the post on the Plex forums, you only need to use Plex for UnRAID link. This plugin is a little older. With regard to Popcorn Hour, I don't think there's an official client, but a third-part client is mentioned in a forum thread. Others may be having luck with DLNA. I personally haven't used the Popcorn Hour. kingJahfy, if you use the Plex UnRAID version (linked to from this page), you can use these commands (again from the forum post): to start PMS: "/etc/rc.d/rc.plexmediaserver start" or restart your server or stop/start your array to stop PMS: "/etc/rc.d/rc.plexmediaserver stop" or stop your array So the new way to do things isn't to use the plugin listed here. I haven't personally upgraded yet, but it's on my to-do list.
  3. I don't know of a way to manually add them, but verify (using thetvdb.com) that your season info is correct and named correctly, then do a Deep Scan (see link to instructions). This is supposed to scan the media again, even if nothing has been changed since the last time it was scanned.
  4. You haven't had any crashes since I haven't had any crashes since, either (I'm using the version from post #152 in this thread). I've been using it regularly since I installed the new version December 4th - our clients include a Roku box and PleXBMC on a Windows computer. We use it at least a couple hours a day, I would guess. Our UnRAID version is beta 12. Doesn't the release notes for (http://elan.plexapp.com/2011/11/28/plex-media-server-v0-9-5-2-tofurky-edition/) specify that they fixed a crash related to Automatic Scanning on Linux? I think this is what I was seeing.
  5. • 1.6 GHz processor (2.4 GHz dual core for 1080p transcoding). • 256 MB RAM http://www.plexapp.com/linux/linux-pms-download.php Excellent. I hadn't seen that page- thanks for your help.
  6. Since the other Plex thread appears to be dead, I'll ask here. What kind of processor is needed for Plex? I've only seen recommendations for "dual core". I have parts on the way for my first UnRAID server, and I'm running Plex on my Windows desktop now, and it would be nice, but not necessary to run Plex on UnRAID. Specifically, will Plex run on the AMD Athlon II X2 245E with 4GB of RAM? What are your UnRAID specs and how does Plex run?
  7. Thanks, I'm glad to know that I'm on the right track. I'll definitely preclear any drives first, and I think I'll look into 3TB drives a little more closely before I buy any parts. I appreciate all the help from the community, and I'm very excited to get this thing going once I'm ready!
  8. I'm planning out a new unRAID server to move my movie collection from my desktop PC to something that is backed up. Currently, I have two 2TB WD EARS drives in my desktop computer, each of which is has about 1.25 TB of data (they're not used for the OS or anything but movies & tv shows). Before I rip more of my DVD collection, I'd like to move things over to an unRAID server. Here are my current thoughts - would it work if I do it this way? 1. Set up unRAID server with new 2TB parity and new 2TB data drive 2. Transfer existing drive A (1.25 or so of data) to unRAID 3. Make sure data looks good on unRAID 4. wipe drive A and add it to unRAID 5. Transfer existing drive B (1.25 or so) to unRAID 6. Make sure data looks good on unRAID 7. wipe drive B and add it to unRAID Final configuration would be one 2TB parity drive, one new 2TB data drive, and two old EARS drives (3 data drives in the array). I'd eventually add more drives when needed. Does this strategy fit in with the recommended way of doing things with unRAID? Would I be better off buying another 2TB drive right away?
