  1. As an FYI, it looks like the developer has very early (Intel based) GPU support: It looks if you pull the "gpu" version, it may work. I'm not 100% sure how we might test without building two separate systems altogether, but may be worth the hassle.
  2. This is still an issue. Is there any way to bring it to someone else's attention that might be able to resolve? Not being able to use on iPad and phone is a pain when wanting to manage something very quickly.
  3. Hi all- I'm currently evaluating Unraid, about 9 days in so far, and have a few questions regarding permissions. I switched from Windows Server 2019 My migration plan was: Copy as much data as possible from 2 smaller drives to external drive using largest available (12TB) Build 2 drive array using 2 smaller drives mentioned above Used Krusader docker to copy from USB to 2 smaller drives Rinse and repeat for the other drives Shuck and pre-clear 12TB former external USB drive and add as parity So, using the above method, every
  4. Understood. My critical data has multiple backups both on-site and off-site, it's more of the various JBODs of entertainment media. It was split logically based on content type, but yeah, getting it pulled in to unraid with it's parity drive(s) would be a win for it.
  5. This is great news... thank you for the quick reply. This was my last obstacle before making the commitment to move. Now, I've just got to plan moving all my data across from Windows Server to Unraid with basically only one spare drive to do it!
  6. Not sure if this is the right forum, but I'm interested in moving to Unraid from Windows Server for a more stable platform. Right now I run WS2016 with Plex, Emby, Blue Iris and a few other items on the system. Blue Iris, Plex and Emby all "share" access to Intel IGP and thus quicksync, in other words, since it's Windows I don't have to dedicate usage to a specific application. Now, if I move to Unraid, will I be able to utilize quicksync on my I7-7700 across multiple docker containers? Will I be able to "share" it with both Plex and Emby to allow for hardware acceleration in bo
  7. I was literally writing my response when I saw your post... but adding the bit to the "go" file did it! I finally played a test file in plex and saw the magical "transcoding (hw) to transcoding (hw)". The official response from ASRock is as I suspected: Yes, you can use Intel on-die GPU for transcoding. In BIOS – Advanced as you see, you just need to set Enable to Intel VGA Device Control and allocate your desired memory size to it. Now, does anyone know if it's possible to use both Emby and Plex at the same time? Well, not at the same time, but certain files p
  8. I tried set memory to both 1GB and 2GB (neither had an effect) and then ran through the various Onboard vs. PCI Express and those seemed to have no effect either. The only one that seemed to matter was the Intel VGA Control option. I enabled that and it seemed to kickstart everything. I still can't quite get Plex and/or Emby transcoding to work yet, but I'm guessing seeing renderD128 means I'm getting close?
  9. Well, after playing with a few settings in the BIOS, I *THINK* I may have gotten it to show up in unraid: Linux 4.14.49-unRAID.

  10. So, this makes me believe that quicksync IS actually available which of course is all I care about. i'm sending yet another response back to them and looking for specific details on how to enable. after I questioned the Intel options in the BIOS, this is what I got back: Thank you for your patience! It is confirmed by our BIOS team that the integrated GPU by Intel’s CPU is for transcoding purpose only. It is not used for video output for this server board. Hope you understand. Thank you!
  11. Well, guess I’m going to have to hope AMEX will do a return guarantee as my CPU and motherboard purchase isn’t able to be refunded. The official response from ASRock: Thank you for reaching out to us for support! Please note that the JViewer remote video stream heavily and solely relies on the integrated GPU ASpeed AST2300. Video output processed by any other 3rd party GPU cannot be passed through to the BMC, thus it will not be streamed to the JViewer, the Console Redirection feature. JViewer capability will also be affected if a PCIe-based video card is installed because vid
  12. I think I may and try to load Windows and see what it reports. If it’s truly not reporting the Intel graphics properly the. I just spent several hundred dollars for nothing. Also, once I hear back front Asrock I’ll report back here as well.
  13. I just saw this myself. I wonder if this is still actually true though. If you look at the BIOS updates starting with 3.30 you’ll see that it mentions Intel Graphics specifically: 4.Enhance Intel Gfx feature I also see several spots in the BIOS now to adjust the RAM to give to the iGPU. I just sent a message to ASRock technical support for clarification. I just bought this bought and a separate processor to do Plex transcoding specifically and am giving myself a headache thinking about it not working.
  14. I did not, nor have I seen that this is required? Needless to say, I've ran the modprobe i915 command; it returned nothing and I still do not see the renderD128 file in /dev/dri. Anything else I should try?
  15. I'm desperately trying to get quicksync / plex / emby hardware encoding to work on my system and can't seem to get it going. I'm running the absolute latest BIOS for my motherboard and in the BIOS, I've enabled Boot graphics = Onboard, Set the memory size to 1GB and I'm still not seeing the renderD128 file in /dev/dri folder. My dev/dri folder is as follows: rwxr-xr-x 3 root root 80 Jul 14 17:55 ./ drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 3500 Jul 14 18:07 ../ drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 60 Jul 14 17:55 by-path/ crw-rw---- 1 root video 226, 0 Jul 14 17:55 card0
