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

  1. Yeah, I didn't get the November 2020 memo either, LoL. So, is it cool that we skip trying to roll back the modified Nvidia Unraid build on 6.8.3 and simply back up our USB thumb drive and upgrade to v.6.9? Looks like 6.9 went live since the time of your post. Thanks in advance for the advice! **Update** Never mind! Found the answer. 😅
  2. It is dependent on your GPU and how many H.265 encoding threads it can handle. I forget the link, but Nvidia has a break down in one of their developer sections with a grid that shows all the capabilities of the various GPUs which will show you how many streams your GPU can handle. I have a GTX 1060 that I use with Unmanic and I set it to two workers as I noticed my encodes for a large queue finished faster than with three workers believe it or not.
  3. And I have the opposite problem. 😆 I can back up, but cannot restore from the SMB Unraid Time Machine share.
  4. I'm able to do backups to the Unraid Time Machine share, but now that I want to migrate over to a new system, I can connect to the server in Migration Assistant from a fresh install and that's about it. None of the time machine backups show up in the next screen after connecting to the server via SMB. It's been hit or miss as I remember a couple of months ago when doing a restore, I was able to see the Time Machine backups in the Migration Assistant, but I wasn't able to restore; I had to use the secondary backup drive. I know that this doesn't not really help anyone, but at least it goes to s
  5. Use the HDMI dongle and don't use Microsoft Remote Desktop/RDP. Instead use Parsec. This way you can still hear the audio passed through to your VR headset. You will also want to select your VR audio as the output in Windows' sound settings. Hope this helps. Or if you fixed it already @adnix42, share with us your steps to get VR + sound to work and mark your thread as [SOLVED].
  6. Have you tried a HDMI dongle? I want to say that the GPU drivers will want to detect a physical display. If that's the case the HDMI dongle that mimics an actual display may be what you are looking for. I game AAA titles in Windows 10 with GPU pass-through no problem. For that to work, I need to have a HDMI dongle. Also, do you have a second GPU for Unraid to use? You need to have a second GPU if you are trying to pass-through your primary GPU in the first slot.
  7. I've only needed a HDMI dongle for GPU pass-through for gaming with the Windows 10 VM. Then again, I also had to install a cheap GPU for Unraid; I was never able to get single GPU pass-through. Also, I am not running a HDMI dongle on the GPU allocated for Unraid. Running a Gigabyte Designare X339 board with a TR4 socket.
  8. What if you SSH into the server and restart the Xorg display service instead of having to reboot? There are some talks about HDMI dongles in this thread.
  9. So, it's never a good idea to be working directly within the /mnt/disk (from what I have gathered on the forums.) What I was referring to in my original post is creating snapshots of my VMs as a means to create lightweight backups without wasting space; the other alternative would be to create an exact copy of a VM image, but you are then wasting space. With the cp --reflink command, you are simply noting the changes in the blocks of data from the original image. So, if I were to make some changes to my gaming rig VM and I messed something up, I can just reverse the cp --reflink co
  10. I'd be curious to know if you can use the 2nd NIC to isolate Unraid traffic to a VPN connection. Since Wireguard is not currently supported natively in the Linux kernel on Unraid v.6.8.3, And I am trying to be more resource efficient with my Dockers, I was thinking of having my router connect to my VPN as a client and then have my router route all of my traffic from the second NIC to use the VPN. Sure @binhex has built VPN support into some of his/her's Dockers, but if I can free up some system resources by not having to download those dependencies and utilize extra system processe
  11. I'm siding with @dboris on this one. As a layperson who does this in their spare time and not at a professional level, it's kind of hard to be aware of everything and anything especially since the Unraid wiki is dead, technology, software & techniques change on a regular basis, and Invision Community's search and forum as a platform sucks (with some regard.) But if the wiki is not updated to act as a central location for insightful information and guides, then we are left to using the forum's wonky search or using an external search engine to parse the forums for the information we are loo
  12. There is a way. Go to Settings > CPU Pinning and from there you can pin entire cores or hyperthreads across the board by clicking on the number(s). That will help save some time. And then you can fine tune the selections from there. It's not as granular as you described but it is better than clicking on each and every individual dot.
  13. @DaClownie - Have you noticed that some of the encodes, you will end up with an output that is larger than the original input? I've been noticing this phenomenon lately especially with some .ts (MPEG-2) encoded streams. But it's not consistent. For the most part the encodes with hevc_nvenc does save me some space (along with time and energy useage.) I've noticed this with Handbrake, you really have to crank down the quality when doing h.265 to get the speeds of the encode to rival that of h.264, but then the files end up being bloated with degraded picture quality than when you first s
  14. You will not find success with PGS subtitles when trying to encode video files that have these types of subtitles embedded within the container — until this project matures. Your best bet is to look towards Handbrake or the other encoder that's been mentioned elsewhere in this thread. (Apologies I don't remember off the top of my head the other encoder's name.) SpaceInvaderOne has a tutorial on how to automate this with Handbrake. It's best to do some test encodes first to make sure you get your preset the way you want it and then let it loose on your library — should you want to under
  15. Unless you're running the latest and greatest GPU's from nvidia, CPU gives a better encode with h.265/HEVC. Better quality and better compression. Just takes a lot longer which equates to more electricity being used. GPU can perform the encodes a lot faster, but lacks B Frame Support for anything lower than a GeForce GTX 1660. CPU currently supports B Frame which is why we see such a reduction in file sizes. I would be curious to see 1) the final encode sizes on the Turing family GPU chipset (sans the GTX 1650) and 2) the encode quality coming from the Turing family chipset when co
