  1. A pesar de que mi i7 viene IGP todavia no lo probe con Plex en Unraid, quiero decir que no lo he configurado pero lo hice en un Ubuntu con Plex que monté para probar y funcionaba bien, con un CPU mas moderno es mucho mejor ya que los de mi generacion no tienen gráficos tan potentes como los de ahora. Las Quadro son caras y no abundan mucho de segunda mano a no ser que busques por Europa en ebay y sinceramente por lo que probe mi 970 puede con ello en caso de que haga falta pero como tú, el contenido lo reproduzco todo en local asi que casi nunca hay transcoding. Suerte!
  2. One advice about NVIDIA drivers, always install the official from the web site or NVIDIA experience, with the driver installed by windows update the performance will be slower
  3. Hi! I've been tinkering a bit since my last post and just saw your answer @hawihoney, haven't tried your advice yet but I managed to make the SSD visible on my Win VM, here is what I've done: disabled passed through in UD Mount the SSD in UD Add SSD to the VM as Primary vDisk setting Bus as VirtIO No need to manually edit config XML file. At this point when I boot the VM I get Win boot repair screen, after choosing kb layout I've select the option to restart and enter UEFI bios, here I have to select the NVME disk as
  4. Hi! could anyone suggest how I should set up the disk? thanks 🙂
  5. Muy buenas, La conexión a la VM la haces físicamente, conectarás monitor a la grafica del servidor que has configurado con pass through para tu maquina virtual y para los periféricos puedes elegir ambas opciones, directamente a los puertos USB del servidor o con una tarjeta PCI-X de puertos USB. Para poder hacerlo con los USB integrados en la placa deberes usar un controlador distinto al que esta conectado el lápiz USB de arranque de Unraid ya que ese controlador no puedes asignarlo a una VM porque esta en uso por el sistema, generalmente casi todas las placas base tienen mas de u
  6. Hola! Para el transcoding y decidir entre grafica dedicada o integrada en Intel lo que mas influye es la cantidad de streams que vas a tener al mismo tiempo, mi experiencia es con Plex y una GPU antigua (GTX 970) que da de sobra para un par de streams simultáneos bajando de 1080 a 720, en mi servidor tengo un i7-7700K también probado con Plex y activado IGP que a pesar de ser un CPU "viejo" también cubre mis necesidades, los Intel que mejor rinden son a partir de 8xxx en adelante. Una Quadro seria perfecto pero es una inversión considerable que se puede minimizar utiliz
  7. Hi! I have a Win10 VM with NVME pass through enable and booting working fine but I need to pass through the secondary SSD where my games are installed. Here is the VMs config, primary Vdisk is set to manual following spaceinvader one guide and is working fine, I've try to set secondary vdisk manually adding the SSDs id copy from /dev/disk/by-id/ updated the config but the changes are not saved or they disappear. Here you can see the drive is recognized by unraid and unassigned devices plugin, I've also tried to mount the SSD and turn on pass thro
  8. Hi, i didn't migrated after all, i'm waiting for new hardware to set up the Unraid server sorry!
  9. Hi @alitech i don't know if you already tried but i managed to pass through my NVME after following the latest vid from Spaceinvander One, basically you have to install a plugin call VFIO PCI Config and that will do the magic for you.
  10. OK I found the way around to this issue, after checking spaceinvander one vids about fine tuning Unraid I installed the tips & tricks plugin and disable Now my VM's network speeds are perfect.
  11. Hi guys, After a few fights with pass through NVME drive and sound card my VM is up and running with everything working fine besides Network performance, speeds are super slow both inside and outside my network, currently my internet speed is 300 Mb. down and up and i can barely reach 4 Mb. down and 120 Mb. upfrom my VM, driver was installed after first boot and all seams to be fine, Killer E2500 is the Ethernet controller, All seams to be fine in device manager Already tried setting adapter's IP address manually from windows.
  12. Ok integrated sound shares IOMMU with more devices, so enabled ACS override and tried with both downstream and multi-function and the VM crashed again, decided to go back to VFIO_PCI config and pass through the sound card but selected the SMBus controller by mistake (didn't realized until now ) and reboot the server, then edited VM, set the sound card as usual and the VM started without any errors and sound is working now . Not sure if ACS override fix it (still enable) or is because of VDIO-PCI config but is working.
  13. Update: After performing basic troubleshooting disabling all passthrough devices and enabling one by one I found out the sound card was preventing the VM to start. Now with the sound card disabled the VM boots from NVME previous installation, I have video output on my monitors from my GTX 970 and all the USB devices connected are working. Any one knows of sound card issues from MSI's z270 mobos ?
