  1. Oh crap. Ok time to find keyboard monitor. More to come
  2. well must be another problem I added append iommu=pt initrd=/bzroot rebooted and still no joy... or do I need tio dig out a keyboard monitor and do it in bios?
  3. Ah ha. Yet that thread says these is a fix/workaround? And/or it was supposed to be fixes in 6.0.1? Suggestions for a working eSata card?
  4. all right, the journey into 4k continues.. now need more space I bought the following - Startech 2 port eSata 6gb/s PCI-E controller PEXESAT32 Mediasonic ProBox HF2-SU3S2 4 Bay 3.5” SATA HDD Enclosure – USB 3.0 & eSATA/SATA 3 6.0Gbps I have seen that people have uses the Startech before without issue. So I popped in 4x2tb drives I had from another server that since migrated to 4tb and hooked it all up. The ProBox (apparently) is in eSata mode the drives are being seen (apparently) by the box during startup (see it tick off the
  5. RESOLVED Replaced all three TRENDnet switches with Netgear GS605NA Gigabit switches and ran the default network setup (with powerline adapters) Buttery smooth on all files Thank you all for the ideas (heads to porch with large hammer and the TRENDnet switches)
  6. @bjp999 yes 100% sure that the FIRETV is hardwired not wireless.
  7. The only constant in all the streaming from server tests has been the TRENDnet switch in the bedroom I'm going to get another switch today and swap that out and try the USB drive in the router suggested. With a new switch the path will be server > switch > FIRETV > TV
  8. Not transcoding, direct stream so the CPU is just shoveling the data over.
  9. @garycase A) no the USB drive is on a USB port on the TV directly so it totally bypasses the network. Does it own reason of the drive with no network involved. B) I'll give that a try tomorrow. Good call I hadn't thought of that. @unrateable I've considered that, you can look back up and see it's an AMDAMD A6-6400K I would think it has the horsepower to do X265 video. Come to think of it, I've never been able to copy FROM th he servers to my windows machine at greater than 44mb/s which makes me think it's my NIC
  10. Streams perfectly well for Netflix and Amazon 4k over the Poweline adapter. But I said I took that out of the loop for this
  11. yes, same result.. actually started with a normal MTU of 1500. went to jumbo on one server left the other at 1500 (identical hardware, identical problem)
  12. As I said, Realte on the motherboard . sys info below normal network for this is cable modem > Netgear Nighthawk X4S router - TRENDnet 8-Port Gigabit GREENnet Switch TEG-S80G > TP-Link AV1000 2-Port Gigabit Powerline Adapter, to bedroom > another TRENDNet Switch (same one) that feeds the Samsung 4K TV and Amazon Fire TV in that room. a separate line from the router goes to another TRENDNet switch in the computer room that feeds two UNRaid boxes (both have the same issue with 4k streaming) another FIreTV. 'Bypassed = Unraid Server > 50
  13. Samsung 4k TV, can stream Amazon and Netflix 4k UHD flawlessly, can stream 4k 60gb/s 4k MKV from an attached USB3 drive perfectly\ Bypassed my entire network with a cat6 direct from my server to the gigabit stitch (TP-Link) on the TV, same results. tried with two different cat 6 cables So yeah, I'm 4k ready.. back to the problem... NIC issue?
