    We're looking down on Wayne's basement. Only that's not Wayne's basement. Isn't that weird?

  1. In my use case, I want to encode everything into h.265 for archiving — with the shows I DVR and then delete after watching, to not be encoded in h.265. And easier fire and forget method I just set up today was this: Stop Unmanic so it doesn't try to encode files while you're working on moving around directories and content. In your media library share create a folder /TV Show_Temp || example: /mnt/user/Plex/TV Show_Temp Add /TV Show_Temp to your Sonarr & Plex Docker templates as a new path Under Sonarr go to: Series > Series Editor Select the TV Shows you want to work on Change the root folder of the TV Series with the following drop down menu at the bottom of your screen: Root Folder > Add a Different Path > TV Show_Temp Log into your Plex dashboard. Settings > Manage > Libraries > TV Shows > Edit > Add Folders > Add TV Show_Temp Manually move the shows that you do not want Unmanic to see to the new /TV Show_Temp folder Go back to Plex and scan your TV library so that the file paths automatically update What this will do from now on is that Sonarr will download the shows you don't want to encode/Unmanic to see to your TV Show_Temp folder and Plex will add it to your library automatically. No need to set up a separate TV library inside of Plex and all your shows show up together in Plex. And no need to keep adding paths of folders to Unmanic. ** You will decide which shows you want to encode automatically by editing the series that you've added already and selecting the TV Show_Temp folder or by making this setting when you add a new show. Don't forget to move the shows you want to hide from Unmanic to the new TV Show_Temp folder you created. There are also settings in Plex that will delete the episodes automatically for you and settings within Sonarr that will unmonitor episodes for you when Sonarr sees a file being deleted. Hope this helps save some folks some time and headaches and allowing more time for play. 🙂 Here are some screenshots if it will help: Sonarr Docker: Plex Docker: Sonarr: Plex: ---
  2. The default RF on the h.265 presets for Apple & Chromecast in Handbrake is RF 15. Try adjusting to 22/± 1. Remember a smaller RF will result in better quality, but a larger file. Even though the Handbrake team advises against it, you can specify your target bitrate (2000 kbps is the default) and reduce file size and encode times that way (single pass) at the expense of quality. Using a Constant Quality (CQ) will scale the stream bitrate higher for more complex scenes. Not sure how we would pass-through the quality settings we want in Unmanic if we want to experiment with NVENC. --- Do we still need to add the --runtime=nvidia under Advanced View now that I see this in the template? -- Yes, hevc_nvenc is the encoder we will want to use now.

  3. Yep. I turned off audio encoding for the same reason(s). I did all the research and passing through the native audio encodes doesn't add too much to the final output. Anywhere from a couple hundred megabytes to several hundred. For all the headaches audio encoding has caused...I simply turned it off. Plex can transcode the audio and that doesn't take up too much processing power when compared to Plex transcoding video.
  4. @Mason736: Boot up your Catalina VM. Press 'Esc' key to get into the OVMF BIOS. Change the resolution to your liking. Make sure you have a remote desktop client installed e.g., Nomachine, Splashtop. Highly recommended that you enable auto login as Nomachine won't be able to initialize the display until logging in.

  6. Ah very cool. I guess there's no chance in getting it to work unless I were to reformat everything which means, I probably won't be able to enjoy the new functionality.
  7. Ha. I was just performing a quick search to make sure I wasn't double posting. Any chance cp --reflink will work with XFS on the next Unraid update? https://blogs.oracle.com/linux/xfs-data-block-sharing-reflink Currently the array is XFS while the cache is BTRFS You can reflink files within the cache, but you cannot go from the array to the cache (XFS -> BTRFS). And I just tried to reflink the VM image from within the user share (array/XFS) and it results in Operation not supported. So, it would be great to be able to reflink from within user shares which, is the safer way to work with data (from my understanding) on the array versus trying to work directly from the disk "shares".
  8. Did you check to see if this feature request has been submitted to the project's GitHub? The request/commit (or may not) already be open on there. @flinte You too, also check the project's GitHub for any feature requests such as your quality control feature request. @All: Have a great rest of the week into the weekend! Stay safe! Watch some movies/TV!
  9. Installed just fine. Was able to get the "Big Mouse" issue. Tried GPU pass-through with an Nvidia GTX 1060 with GPU bios dump = no such luck. With the GPU pass-through, the screen would flicker and then the display would display correctly with the OS trying to recover from a system crash. System would reboot into the system and then crash all over again into a boot loop. I run my VM's headless. But from these videos, we'll have better luck installing Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and then install the Steam client in there. Linus Tech Tips | Craft Computing Also those that run headless, not sure what clients you are using, but Parsec supports Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. That's something I want to test when I come back to this side project.
  10. You can download the latest Steam OS ISO here: https://repo.steampowered.com/download/ But we are still having display issues.
  11. You can set it up on their website: https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/home.php How much disk space is everyone devoting to this? I just set a 10 GB cap for now. Anyone just go with the default settings? How's that working for you? Also, anyone find that the BIONC manager lags on macOS? Stuck on this screen a lot: It also appears you can do all of your configuration from the website after you logged into your BIONC account in the manager software and synced it with the docker client. Also, happy to report that I'm up and running! Thanks @Squid for bringing this to my attention with the banner announcement. (Although, it did give me pause real quick as expressed by @alael.)
  12. That's what I figured. I've just created a document with the necessary changes that I need to remember to copy/paste back into the XML after changes. Nvidia pass-through has been finicky with Macinabox. Install is amazing and simple. Getting the OS to recognize my display dongle for my GPU so that I change change resolution on the thin client (Apple Screen Share OR Splashtop) has been a PITA. Display is stuck at 1280x1024. With no sound. 07-MAR-20 So I was very careful to update my XML by hand and not use the template editor. Pretty much copy/pasted the settings I wanted from my other High Sierra install prior to the invention of Macinabox. I'm happy to report that I have Nvidia GPU pass-through with sound. Video playback is a lot smoother within Splashtop with GPU pass-through. Running the Macinabox High Sierra VM headless with an HDMI dongle. Able to adjust the VM display to match that of my thin client. Using the template editor modifies the XML in a way that you lose all of the custom changes that SpaceInvaderOne was so kind enough to set up for us. Even though I was catching the majority of the changes, when I was using the template editor, I was still missing some the nuance XML customizations
  13. Is there a way to make this change persistent? Every time I make a change using the template editor, this section of the XML is modified.
  14. It's really as a fall back measure or like you said, to make the streams compatible with just about any device out there without having Plex or (insert your media manager/server here) transcode the audio to your other devices. I for instance have an older setup wherein I have to pass-through my audio from TV to my receiver via optical and my TV only supports AC3 out. Eventually I'll upgrade to a receiver that accepts sound via HDMI instead of HDMI video pass-through only. Does this mean you're using the modded version of Unraid that allows for Nvidia GPU access to docker apps such as Plex?
  15. Feel free to stop by the GitHub and submit some commits. I'm sure Josh5 would appreciate the help as he is a one-man-army at the moment. I'd love to put my money where my mouth is, but I am not a coder (maybe in the future though?) GPU encoding is on the road map as stated elsewhere in this thread.
