Hi there,


Apologies for the lack of detail.  Specs I have mentioned.  That current video that I was watching was a 4k version of LOTR which it didn't seem to be able to stream in Original Quality through plex, through my wired network onto my apple TV.  Upon closer inspection of the Status page, I saw that the processor itself had all 4 cores at 100 pct.... Fully red bars.


I then had plex convert to 720p rather than play original quality, and that worked better, even though the cpu cores were still on average at 75-90%.


My question is this: While I'm sure that changing the motherboard and pc is one possible option, it would be easier to take the load of transcoding etc off the cpu and shift to a gpu.  Is that even possible in Unraid?  And am I along the right track?


Thanks for the help! Much appreciated.
