    Help with my future build?

    Hey - apologies if this comes across as a noob post or whatever, I've recently been introduced to Emby and I am absolutely amazed with it, it's absolutely fantastic, so good that I've decided to host my own Emby server. I'm looking at spending anywhere from £300-500 (although this can be pushed up slightly if need be) for my build. I've considered these things currently: Mac Mini (16GB Ram, i5 Processor, 240GB SSD) HPe Proliant ML10 Gen9 HPE ProLiant Gen8 G1610T 819185-421 (4GB RAM) MicroServer Storage won't be a problem as I'll have a 8TB NAS to start with. My requireme
  2. Now that hardware acceleration is widely used, I need to suggest that inside user configuration can give permissions to HW or SW encoding separately. Why? Maybe I want to allow only HW encoding because I don't want CPU spikes everywhere... Or maybe somebody only desire SW encodings because sees more quality in it...
  3. I've got emby-server setup on an Ubuntu server 16.04 from an Asus laptop with i7 2.8ghz cpu and 16gb ram, along with a 2tb ext hdd in the usb 3.0 port. I'm very curious about what the streaming limitations are with emby. If I've got a day when my household is using emby on several devices and then say several friends and family using the server are all connecting and using media potentially on several devices, at one point can I expect to have an issue? How does emby utilize i/o on the ext hdd? What files are transcoded and how can I minimize the need for transcoding? In general, I'm just

    Hardware needed for live TV?

    Hello, I've been running an Emby server at home for quite a while, but I've never set up live TV. I have Cox Communications, with a box beside my server (Running one Windows 10). Could anyone like to a guide or something? I looked around but I guess I don't know the correct search terms to use because I'm not finding anything related to this. Update: Somehow I missed this, sorry. https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Wiki/wiki/Live-TV
  5. I was looking for a low-cost solution for something that would just run 24/7 with low power consumption and ran into the NEXBOX T10. I don't need any transcoding (i think) as most my devices play media through KODI. Thoughts on the hardware? $87 seems preetty decent for a bare bones box with included hdd and windowsOS. About my current setup: Library is on a NAS, livingroom's got a on-24/7-macMini running KODI; bedroom uses FireTV4K with KODI; main PC runs emby server. Started emby on the PC but thought the macMini would be better since it's lower power consumption so I migraged over l
  6. Would appreciate some advice and help as running out of storage. Have a N54 HP Microserver assembly server which is maxed out at 5x3TB plus a 512GB SSD. Running tRAiD on this array. So need to expand this and the cheapest option appears to be a Direct Attached Storage box (DAS) using eSATA. Seen models from Startech, IcyBox, Hornettek etc all with mixed reviews. Need a plain vanilla version as using tRAID. Auto power up power down, very quiet. Any recommendations?
  7. Planning for a new emby server build and wondering whether highly parallel architectures would benefit emby Windows server especially as I do not require transcoding - all my clients are Windows based. The 8 core Avoton board from Asrock has a TDW of 20 watts with a Passmark in excess of 4000 compared to my HP Microserver of 1200 or so. However, the single thread performance is probably no better than the Microserver so I might not see any benefit buy upgrading to an Avoton based system. Another option I am considering is to move to a XEON D-1540 system with TDW of 45 watts which is also 8

    Hardware: NUC, Mac Mini, other?

    Hi, I'm looking for a new emby server hardware around 300$. Running Ubuntu Server 15.10. I'd like to transcode 2-4 streams on the same time. 24/7 operation => low power consumption Which hardware could you recommend? What's about the new Intel Nuc: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/nuc/nuc-kit-nuc6i3syk.html? The CPU also supports quick sync. Cheers
  9. Bonjour, Après avoir découvert récemment emby (que je trouve excellent), je songe à monter un petit serveur emby, pour diffuser et streamer des films à mes autres appareils (TV, iPhone/iPad, ordinateur portable). Pour cela, je cherche une configuration qui soit la plus petite possible (format Intel NUC par exemple), et qui serait parfaitement silencieuse. Sachant que je ferai au maximum 2 streamings en parallèle, et le plus souvent 1 seul, quelle configuration matérielle est nécessaire (format 1080p) ? CPU (i5/i7), GPU (Intel HD 5000 / Iris 6100 ?), mémoire ? Y-a t-il des posse
  10. Dear all, I have a project to setup a dedicated emby server, for streaming 1080p videos, to devices live a TV, an iPad or a laptop (no transcoding for the laptop). I looking specifically for a compact and quiet (fanless if possible) hardware configuration. I'm wondering about the Intel NUC. Does it provide enough power to perform 1080p video transcoding, assuming that I'll transcode no more than 1 video at a time ? Which configuration allows to transcode without lagging ? What CPU version (i5/i7) and/or the GPU (Intel HD 5000 / Iris 6100) are enough ? Does anybody have such an
  11. Hi, Been having issues with playback stutter, testing below. I'm not sure if its time for an upgrade or if this is a fault that can be resolve, read on and you decide. Test has been performed on a complete fresh install of Windows 7 64 bit SP1 with all updates and all drivers up to date. Emby server: Version 3.0.5597.1 Using Inerstellar 1080p MKV for test file. When running the file through Emby classic (classic is located on the same PC as the Emby server), CPU resources are barely used and video runs great: when running through web browser on Emby sever, CPU usage spikes w

    Server Advice

    Opinions/Suggestions welcome! So finally have a number of years one of my WHS2011 servers has kicked the bucked. Actually, I think just the motherboard quit on me as it will no longer post. It had been running 24/7 and after one of the many Windows updates requiring a restart I can not even get it to post so I can get into the BIOS. Current hardware: Supermicro X8SIL-F Motherboard 4GB RAM Old i3 processor (can't remember exactly what and can't post to figure it out) 1x 1.5TB WD Blue OS 6x Mix of different size and manufacturer drives (Single data pool created using Drive Bender) Bu
  13. How long before MB becomes a piece of hardware that can be purchased and plugged in like an Apple TV or a WD TV or Boxee. It seems to be the next logical step in MB's evolution and would be a hughe leap forward in media streaming / playing devices that are available today. I dont know bugger all about progaming or software etc but surely you could list it as a startup and try to get someone interested in creating a dedicated box. I was just musing and wondered if it had been brought up or even contemplated, i remember in the days of MB2 it was suggested that no way would there be a non WMC de

    MBT on Intel Celeron NUC

    I have been using an old Xbox360 with MBC for a while, and it just red ringed and bit the dust. I'm thinking about a small/cost effective build to run MBT. Has anyone tried running MBT on one of Intel's Next Unit of Computing (NUC) devices? The one I was thinking about was the Celeron model (http://tinyurl.com/lz8cwkt). It is a little weak on CPU but it is listed as having a pretty powerful integrated gpu. For a machine that would cost less than $300 and is the size of an apple TV, I'd love for this to be sufficient. I'm planning to run Windows 8 or 8.1. If this won't work, I'll probabl
  15. Hello, I've been a computer tech for a number of years, but I haven't really setup an HTPC system apart from a central file server. I was wondering how this setup sounds, or if there is something I missed. The file server is a Thecus N7700 Pro. I need to add a PC to run Mediabrowser server and transcode/stream the content from the N7700. I was thinking of getting an i5 Intel NUC with 8GB of RAM and a small 120GB SSD. It will need to feed 4 streams (me, Mom, 2 kids) simultaneously, either to hardwired xmbc clients or mobile devices over the local LAN. For the clients I was going to
