  1. im not an engineer either.....basic carpentry skills is all thats needed....... This is probably the most badass thing I've ever seen if you just need basic carpentry skills. Would you happen to know any good how-to's? Nice image by the way.
  2. Forgive me for not being an engineer. As for that link, it doesn't work: "This item might have been deleted, expired, or you might not have permission to access it. Contact the owner of this item for more information."
  3. Not a bad idea whatsoever there prostuff1. I just might go with that honestly. How's it look though, with your server on it? Is it a bit ghetto?
  4. I'm trying to find some nice, inexpensive, good looking rackmounts. Preferably those that I can mount on a wall or ceiling in my basement. Thoughts? Thanks community!
  5. I got my brother an AppleTV 2 (black edition) for Christmas and he loves it natively. Of course, he's going to hack it and put on XBMC or Plex which I read up a lot on... hacking it that is. I believe the youtube video instructions on Plex/XBMC hacking is between 12-20 minute steps. It would be worth it IMO if you use unRAID. Reason? AppleTV2's device has built-in IR Receiver and can be hacked with XBMC/Plex (aka nice video interface for TV Shows and Movies). The IR Receiver I mention because you may be able to switch everything to a universal remote control. My brother accepted h
  6. Actually... I don't think this includes the CPU. Silly me thinking Newegg finally had a decent Shell Shocker deal...
  7. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856501004 This is for $79.99 if you get it during the Shell Shocker today between 10:00am-12:59pm PST. That's 1:00pm-3:59pm EST. I'm not sure of how this benchmarks and I've been looking all over. I do see that it supports 1080p and it's GOT to be better than the ION I would think. Thoughts?
  8. Hi, I have a basic UnRAID server so far and my friend just bought a 3TB USB External HDD on Black Friday. We're trying to transfer the data to his external HDD but he's saying it isn't being recognized by Win7 in the 'my computer' area. He said it shows up in device manager but not in My Computer. I am trying to find more information on this, but I swore that these HDD would be easily read by Windows and even Linux if necessary. Can anyone help with the problem or pinpoint me to an area that explains this well? Much appreciated -- Thanks!
  9. unraid web combines web server and unmenu and a few other things, but i forgot to mention the most important part for all of this. How do you achieve all of this REMOTELY. sorry I should have clarified
  10. Hi, I would like to find the best/easiest way to access unraid via a browser. OpenSSH allows you to connect to the server or maybe to another computer that is on, but it does not allow you to open a browser on the server right? Because the server does not have one? I've tried unraid web which prompts me for a username and password at my local PC but not at work when I forwarded the ports. I immediately turned the port forwarding off when I got home. Is there an easier way to maybe password protect the unraid web app? Any ideas from the awesome peanut gallery?
  11. Consider it ~$80 because you will need to RMA this item after a week.
  12. Might want to look in to an AppleTV 2 and jailbreaking it. That'll do 1080p and it's $85 refurbished with free shipping on the Apple online store. I have one that I have Plex on (along with XBMC but I prefer the Plex look on the ATV2) with the Plex Media Server on my unraid server and it works like a charm. And it's so small I have it mounted to the back of a TV completely out of view. It's only a little bigger than an hockey puck. From the specs, it seems like AppleTV2 will play those 1080p video formats but it doesn't have the 1080 resolution, is that correct?
  13. I wonder if it is able to run 720p and 1080p movies without any issues and also if it is able to run XBMC Live with alternative skins without any sketchiness. Probably a better question for another forum though...
  14. Then it is not set as the boot device. Sigh... sorry. You are correct as well as the other person above... I didn't think my BIOS would change that since the OS is booting from the flash drive. Thanks... and sorry again. [sOLVED]
