  1. Hahaha I was just thinking its fine I don't need it and now I want to setup it more and more To be honest I will make it time dependant. I will have to check out the KVM section, as I would want to try and build a PC with the new Ryzen CPUs coming out. It will be interessting on how upgradeable the system can be. Maybe I will test unraid on my old system then and play with it until I am happy and then convert the main system to Unraid. Ok interessting. How is the gaming performance while running Plex? Or while it is transcoding?
  2. Thanks for the input. It seems running plex in a windows VM is more stable and also has more support. I really want to run an unraid server, as my NAS is reaching its limit. Still running my main PC in unraid as a vm seems not that recommended. Due to space issues having a second PC just as a server is difficult, but will try to use my old one maybe for PFsense and stuff. I really would like to learn to use VMs and docker
  3. Really sorry for the late reply. I had to put this project on hold for a while. Ok good to know regarding the power drain. The more I think about it, the less it makes sense. I just wanted a stronger Server since the NAS is reaching its limits, but I just may buy a used old Xenon Server and setup unraid there without any windows VMs. Just running the docker containers I need. Thanks for your help!
  4. Hey so budget would be around 2k and only 1080p und below. Does this even work? Like how will this behave? If I turn off my VM will everything still run at full power consumtion as unraid is running? Just thinking a bit also about power consumption. Or will the GPU idle, if there is no use for it. Edit: Does it even make sense to move plex from the NAS to a VM? If not I would just build a normal Windows PC I mean the synology NAS does struggle sometimes.
  5. Hey I am new to this stuff and recently found (was recommended) UnRaid. I was planning to build a Plex server (4-5 transcoding streams at once) and a separate Gaming tower. Now the question is if I could just combine these two systems and let Windows run as a VM? Are there major performance deficits. Or will my VM choke if Plex is transcoding too much? Any help would be appreciated. BR Beryllium
