  1. Hi Jason, Have you managed to pass through a Dolby Atmos soundtrack in Handbrake? If yes can you let me know which version you are using? Using the djaydev fork of handbrake which allows NVENC and removes quick sync I have been unable to pass through an Atmos sound track. Thanks dgs2001
  2. Josh5, 25 pages late into your Unmanic docker but just wanted to say a big Thumbs Up from me. This is looking like a great docker. The feature I like most is the ability to pass through the sound as is. Handbrake will not currently pass through an Atmos sound track instead re-encoding it which is really annoying!! One feature request if I may - The ability to move an encoded file to an 'output' folder. Keep up the good work and Thanks
  3. Hi SpaceInvaderOne Another outstanding contribution ! Not sure if this is the right place to ask but here goes - Can you please do a tutorial on creating and publishing a docker container start to finish, for unraid. Its such a fab part of the Unraid Server I would be really interested to see somebody walk us through a deployment from start to finish. Nothing overly complex just a simple one! What do you recon? Thanks dgs2001
  4. Hi Phillips2010 First up I'm no expert. Just a regular home based nerd type So I read your whole post and thought there is a simple answer - Basically Unraid just works ! I was a long time freenas user, it also works as a NAS storage solution but you can't just add more random drives into a freenas pool. Once I filled up my drives I started looking at options and I stumbled upon Unraid. Unraid really has been the best decision I made, a re-purposed dual E5-2690 dell server, running 32GB ram and a 1TB ssd for a cache barely gets warm running multiple dockers, a few vms, a media server with associated downloading, re-encoding and processing and all whilst dealing with storage for a small business, Access Control for users is straight forward and also works as expected. Managing Shares, Users and Vm's is all pretty straightforward too. I am unsure about Backblaze rules and definitions, but there is a possibility that a pc/mac VM with access to any shares you wanted backed up could allow you to still run the personal backup service? The excelent Community Applications plugin provides access to a large number of functioning docker containers, set up and execution of these is simple for even the less experienced nerds amoungst us. Also no need for teamviewer as within the excelent Community Applications (CA) plugin there exists a fully functional Wireguard app, although you will need to open a port in your Work firewall if thats where the server resides. To help with your decision making I highly recomend you check out the tutorials by Spaceinvader One - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZDfnUn74N0WeAPvMqTOrtA you will see these excelent tutorials refered to time and time again throughout the forums which by the way are friendly, helpful and full of posters far more knowledgable than me! Not a very technical answer but to refocus on my opening statement - Basically Unraid just works. Oh and Docker all the way, I did a search on importing media to plex docker from plex vm and found this article https://support.plex.tv/articles/201370363-move-an-install-to-another-system/ Also Spaceinvader One who I mentioned earlier did a video specific to Unraid although he was moving from one docker container to another docker container you can see it here -
  5. I know this is an old thread, but I have just had similar trying to set up PfSense as a virtual machine. In short a windows vm can see my 4 port nic but PfSense cannot see more than one port on the card. I highly recommend watching the excellent video's SpaceInvader One has created. His video titled Advanced GPU passthrough may be the answer to your problem and also the op. In short study the XML as per the post previously by uek2wooF and described excellently by SpaceInvader One. The card or device you are passing through must be passed in a way to mimic the hardware. With a 4 port intel pro NIC card the virtual bus and slot must be the same with the device marked as multifunction and the different ports corresponding to the different function number. As an example this is the XML for a 4 port nic where all 4 ports are now correctly passed through - <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x43' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> </source> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x01' slot='0x00' function='0x0' multifunction='on'/> </hostdev> <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x43' slot='0x00' function='0x1'/> </source> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x01' slot='0x00' function='0x1'/> </hostdev> <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x44' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> </source> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x01' slot='0x00' function='0x2'/> </hostdev> <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x44' slot='0x00' function='0x1'/> </source> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x01' slot='0x00' function='0x3'/> </hostdev> Although in hardware the card is split across two bus numbers, mine are bus='0x43' and bus='0x44' but yours may be different, in order to see all 4 ports in a pfsense vm the card must be passed through on just one bus. EDIT I did not select bus number 0x01, this was the bus number as generated automatically within the xml template, yours may be a different bus number to mine. bus='0x01' Hope this helps anybody who stumbles upon this thread in the future.
  6. OK Problem Solved. To recap it seems even though I selected passthrough for just about all the audio formats, the audio is not passed through if it is marked as Unknown unless unknown is selected in the track behavior window. I had not realised this before. Thanks again for the help and the excellent container. dgs2001
  7. @dee31797 Thanks for the suggestion. Looking at the log I see the following [15:53:08] libhb: scan thread found 1 valid title(s) + Using preset: 265AUTOpass + title 1: + stream: /watch/series/Some Episode to Encode.S07E20.720p.HEVC.x265-MeGusta/82070f.mkv + duration: 00:43:31 + size: 1280x718, pixel aspect: 1/1, display aspect: 1.78, 23.976 fps + autocrop: 0/0/0/0 + chapters: + 1: duration 00:43:31 + audio tracks: + 1, Unknown (AC3) (5.1 ch) (384 kbps) (iso639-2: und), 48000Hz, 384000bps + subtitle tracks: [15:53:08] Starting work at: Mon Apr 6 15:53:08 2020 So the audio is there nut it's Unknown. Further on I see [15:53:08] json job: { "Audio": { "AudioList": [], "CopyMask": [ "copy:aac", "copy:ac3", "copy:dts", "copy:dtshd", "copy:eac3", "copy:truehd" ], "FallbackEncoder": "fdk_aac" } So I think the setup is all good. But then the audio is not copied through to the output file. It only happens intermittently, but I'm guessing HB is ignoring audio marked as "Unknown". I will go and check the Audio settings for track selection. Thanks dgs2001
  8. Hi @dee31797 I have been using your handbrake docker but seem to have an issue with AC-3 audio. Although I have AC-3 audio ticked for passthrough whenever a file contains AC3 audio it is stripped completely from the output so I get picture with no sound? Is this something you have come accross before? and can you help me fix it. And Thanks for the containers dgs2001
  9. Alas no I did not. I set up a physical pfSense Box and sorting the virutual machine kind of took a back seat and still has not been sorted! Please let me know if you work it out Thanks
  10. Hi All, Whilst setting up a pfsense VM I am getting stuck. Once the install is done the VM will not start, it reports the following error - Looking at the log I can see the following- I have had a poke around using my limited skills and discovered the following - The hardware in question is an Intel quad port nic card which is passed through IOMMU (vfio-pci.ids=8086:10bc) as so - Can somebody please explain how I would pass to the VM? or even pass the option rom file which I have? Thanks
  11. Hi Djoss, Thankls for the clarification, I have this sorted now. I was looking in the 'Preferences' menu instead of the encoder list. I have now selected the encoder as 'nvenc' and confirm all is working and can be seen with the watch nvidia-smi command in terminal. Happy to report that enoding with nvenc on a quattro p2000 is roughly 10 times faster than using ten cores/threads of the 2 xeon cpu's I have so thanks for the great work you do
  12. Hi @Djoss Thanks for the container. Im a novice so sorry for the question if its simple! How can i tell whether handbrake is using my GPU? I can see if emby is transcoding by using watch nvidia-smi or from the emby settings page. The Unraid dashboard shows the cpu cores pinned to Handbrake maxing out whenever it is in use, and this makes me wonder if it is using the P2000 card? Thanks for your help. Hardware - Unraid Nvidia 6.7.2 2 x Xeon E5 2690 32GB Ram Dell T620 server
  13. I'm a newbie too but here are a few things I had to check when I set this up a couple of months ago.! Have you set up your google domain records to point back to your static IP address? I used cloudflare as per the excellent spaceinvader tutorial and all works fine with dns validation. Check that you have set the top level domain name in the letsencrypt container settings. i.e. if your domain is 'example.domain' and you are creating a certificate for the subdomain 'my.example.domain' then the docker container setting for domain name would be 'example.domain' Also make sure your router/firewall is forwarding traffic, so from your router/firewall port 443 should be forwarded to your local unraid server ip address port 1443 or whatever port number you specified in the docker container settings under 'https' Hope that helps
  14. I myself used one of these for our office and had no issues reflashing the bios https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-LSI-Internal-SAS-SATA-9211-8i-6Gbps-8-Ports-HBA-PCI-E-RAID-Controller-Card/131829448255?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 it now sits in a dell t30 server tower running unraid which has been solid since going online some three or so months ago. Having run it as a mirror to an existing freenas setup for the last 6 weeks we are now comfortable and due to decomission & repurpose the freenas hardware.
  15. Confirmed this bug is still present despite latest updates to CA plugin. Suggested fix in update to 6.8 as here
