  1. I know this is not directly related to media or Emby or other topics related to this forum but i need some advice and, after searching the web I found so much info, much of which contradicts itself, that I am lost more than I usually am. I need to find a good, reliable external charger for my cell phone that can also run my phone while charging. It would be a huge boost if I could find one that can maintain operation and recharge from moderately bright room lights. (That is not a requirement but it is a good boost.) My phone uses a USB C cable for charging and I have plenty of cables for that and I have found that a simple USB port works fine. It just does not charge fast. I have searched and searched and read and read and I have managed to produce much more confusion than clarity. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. NOTE: I will not be using the phone for calls when on the battery pack, recharger or whatever. I just want to be able to listen to books and/or music when I do not have access to regular electric power. Size/weight is not much of an issue but the charger should be no more than three or four times the size of my phone. If it is not able to operate via light then it should be able to run the phone for 14-24 hours or more. By itself my phone can play audio for about 10 hours. I have even looked at packs that come in multiples but that does not seem to really be a good solution. I am looking quite seriously at:Solar cell phone charger. but I can not really tell if that is a good option for me and "FakeSpot" finds deception in the reviews.. I "think" it might be but I am not sure and I am not sure if there are better options. One more thing is I cannot go to stores so I must order on-line or have some way to have the product delivered. Thanks in advance for any all help. This search got complicated and out of control quickly.
  2. Hello Guys, I am running into a new situation and wanted to see if some of you guys have any good solution for me or advise So recently i move out of my curent apartment to live with roommates, so i got my own master 1 bed 1 privet bath and an option in the future to add my own internet line from COX Communications However my rent includes 1- Room with privet bathroom 2- Cable TV : "Cable TV" with paid programming, my roommate said is cox communications basic plan zip code is 91942, i used a spliter to divide to 2 connections , the first goes directly to my TV and second i left it alone just in case i need to use it with windows media center or PVR or if i have any other options 3- Wireless internet 4- Cable for Internet Jack not activated for my internal use, unless i get roommate agreement with cox and get my own internet , at this moment i am not able to run a Ethernet cable across living room to my room from one router to my router Now because of this new setup that i have i am not sure how to find which tv show are in air at what time , and i am not sure what to do to get some kind of a guide for it ? also because no wired network everything has to be on wirlease which is my other issue , my desktop pc which is daying at any time does not have any wireless so i bought a wireless USB Note: i just move in so it will take me a month or mybe more before i can put my Server online as electricity is huge concern with roommate and before some say anything about roommate thing so here is the deal i am getting divorce and got sprated so i cant afford a houe or apt for rent on my own My one option is to re build my Desktop and add 1 or 2 (250GB HHD ) with one SSD to my pc and run windows 7 64bit or windows 8.1 64bit with media center , TV Tuner card , wireless , and recorded tv show with no media browser server This could give me a guide and PVR functions and wont hurt electrical that much Other options i am not sure at all to be honest as i did not have basic programming since 2006 and cable tv is cox communications in san diego , some had spoke about SiliconDust HDHomeRun but i dont know about that too http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/5156-little-confused-about-live-tv/ Please advise

Also i am not sure if FlexRaid does Software raid simller to Raid one with making Mirror ? Also between 2 sata cards and motherboard my server system is full of so so many cables hard to tell which one is from sata card and which one from Motherboard so i might have to take all sata cables off and connect them one by one or something like that The next part of the plan is: I will use FlexRaid to setup Drive Pool and protections The last part of the plan is: To connect all drives to CrushPlan and start Network Backup on all my drives , sure it will take forever mybe years and years to backup all that much but it is second line of defiance for backup and protections Hopefully once i can get all these stages done i will be in much better situation and i will be able to add up to 8 More drives to my Server whenever i need more space Please advise Thank you very much
  10. Storage Enclosure System vs NAS Hello I am wondering what would be the safe route , i am thinking to get 8 Bay Storage Enclosure system and not go with NSA NAS is expensive and had better file system support and so on but 8 bay storage enclosure comes so cheap Example one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816132016 Example two : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816111168&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL101013&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL101013-_-EMC-101013-Index-_-ServerRAIDSystems-_-16111168-LM2A Both are cheap and i can save up someone in a month or 2 to buy it Now as far my understanding even if i add 8 Hard drives still i am limated to 16 TB and anything over 2TB wont work so that is little limations just there so wnated to run by the guys here and see what everyone think Please note: when i do the math Storage Enclosure will be around $330 with tax and 1 4TB around $160 and flexraid around $65 But these are cheap and on supper sale deals not sure about quality and so on so before i make wrong purchase and run into non stop issue and so on running by you guys Thanks
