    Need your help and opinion

    Hi, First, thanks for any help that you can provide with that. I have old parts that I no longer use and I would like to build a media server with them. Here are the parts: Motherboard: GA-Z68A-D3-B3 Processor: i5 2300 @ 3.10ghz Memory: 2x 2gb @ 1333mhz & 2x 4gb @ 1333mhz Graphic Card 1: Asus Geforce GTX 560TI Graphic Card 2: Gigabyte Geforce 650GT Boot: 128GB SSD Storage (spinning): 1x 1tb & 4x 4tb in RAID5 Power Supply: 500w I plan to use Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 with Docker, I am not very familiar with Unraid / FreeNas, etc. 1. Can I use both graphics cards even if they are not in SLI for transcoding? If not which one should I use? (I want to be able to transcode 4k if possible) 2. Is the power supply powerful enough if I can use both graphics cards? 3. Should I find out about Unraid or FreeNas, etc.? Is it worth it? 4. Any other suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated. P.S. If I can't have 4k, I would settle for 1080p.

    Building a Nas help

    I recently upgraded a mini pc for my parents and I have the old one its an hp elitedesk 705 g3 mini and dont really know what to do with it was thinking of using it as the heart for a nas to run my emby, now not sure if it would be best to keep it with windows 10 and install emby to it and run it that way or to just make it a nas and just connect a large das via usb 3.0 to it and house it all in my media center under my tv as its open with good air flow, more of a project than anything else and but would like it to work well if I start it any thoughts or suggestions?
  3. @@Luke - The latest available FreeBSD build is currently displayed as version ( https://emby.media/freebsd-server.html ) ... compared to the latest non-FreeBSD available: ( https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.Releases/releases ). ISSUE: The GitHub build attrition/retention rules do not consider platform specific builds, before removing builds, as platform-specific builds lag behind. PROPOSAL: Re-work attrition/retention rules to keep the latest available per platform, instead of a generic version trigger. In the proposed scenario the latest FreeBSD build would be vs the published Cheers!
  4. So, 6 years later, I need a new server. I am officially out of space. I've lost 2 HDD's, almost corrupted an array, and reformatted my OS twice (mainly due to jumping on the SSD bandwagon a little too early and, I suspect, a little too cheaply. My family's collection of 161 BluRay's, 830+ DVD's, and 44 TV series (that include long runners like Cheers, Frasier, and The Simpsons) has pushed me to the 13TB mark and the max of my current set up. I have been with Emby as one very loyal member, but as inept as they come when technology is concerned. Like a good drug though, I can't stay away. I admit - I thoroughly enjoyed having a better than NetFlix experience before there was NetFlix. The jealousy of my dinner guests was a delicious aperitif to an evening of fine dining as we watched our favorite flicks. I am, now, at a crossroads. I see the bevy of technology in front of my and I salivate over the prospects. What server should I use and what hardware to accompany it? A back story of my hardware: 1 x LSI MegaRAID SATA/SAS 8708EM2 3Gb/s PCI-Express w/ 256MB onboard memory RAID Controller Card, Kit 1 x AMD Phenom II X2 550 Callisto Dual-Core 3.1 GHz Socket AM3 80W HDX550WFGMBOX Desktop Processor 8 x Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K2000 HDS722020ALA330 (0F10311) 2TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive ... I have more parts to the machine, obviously, but I feel these are the main players and give anyone who has build a rig themselves a good idea of what I have to work with. The thing is, I am really not interested in keeping any of it. Here's my thought: I've gotten more use out of these parts that, except for the hard drives, were all bought 6 years ago. I've never kept a computer fully intact for more than 3 years in my life. And the system still performs admirably. I am torn at the possibility of going to a NAS set up or staying with my tried and true set up of Windows. The lynch pin for my Windows set up is the LSI raid card. It COULD save me if my motherboard dies, as I would just have to transfer the card to another server, with discs attached, and I am up and running again. That said, I wonder if there are better options out there. See, when I started with Emby, transcoding wasn't really a thing. Now that streaming is built in with Emby, I am noticing FFMpeg chewing up my resources like no tomorrow. My poor 6 year old processor is struggling and, for the first time ever, I actually get stuttering in movies when I play two at the same time. I figure I have two options: just migrate to a beefier, modern processor with more than two cores or try to trace down the issue. Again, not good with the computers but I can open a wallet like a damn savant. Since I am also running out of storage, this seems to be where I am stuck. Getting back to the meat of my thread (long), I am looking for build ideas from those of you in the community. I am hoping that one or two of you have similar usage patterns to me and I might be able to copy your system, if it works great for you. For instance, my server resides in my office with my work/play computer. I can open the well ventilated cabinet, pop out the disc tray, load a movie, and remote desktop into it (it's running Win7 Ultimate). I can watch from the upstairs or downstairs TV via Window 7 Media Center, with emby for MC installed. I also enjoy live TV via a HDHomeRun Prime, for cable. I have a couple wireless devices but everything else is hard wired on a commercial grade network (it was my big splurge when we moved into our first home a few years ago). Also, I picked up a Roku 2, and I am pleasant surprised with it's performance, for such a little and inexpensive thing (by comparison to the two computers running Win 7 MC). I've also used an Xbox 360 in the past but it sounds like a weed eater being tossed into a wood chipper during a wild weekend at Sturgis - all the while on fire. So, what are your thoughts? I am sitting on 13TB of data, money is not really a concern but I don't necessarily want to throw it away. Let's face it, Netflix and other streaming services are out there so I can't get too ridiculous.

    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 requirements so far are: Steam to 3 devices in the same household. (Will most likely be 3 at the max, but maybe potential for 4-5) Be able to stream remotely to 1-2 people (If I'm at my girlfriends house or travelling for work) Do either of the 3 I've posted look like they could do what I require? Or do any of you kind folk know a better build that will give me more bang for my buck? I'm not opposed to building the server myself out of parts, just trying to get some knowledge here. Many thanks
  6. Hey guys. When trying to build emby-server in a docker container, the following worked untill 3.0.8500: sudo apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends \ ca-certificates \ git \ libmono-system-core4.0-cil \ mono-devel \ mono-runtime \ mono-utils \ mono-xbuild \ wget cd $HOME \ && git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/MediaBrowser/Emby.git I then change to Tools/Linux_Build_Scripts/ and launch MediaBrowser.Mono.Build.sh But since 3.1.1 (I must have missed 3.1.0) I get: ... ======================================== Requirements ======================================== Check if folder mediabrowser exist Creating folder: mediabrowser ======================================== Nuget: Restoring packages ======================================== Restoring NuGet package MSBuild auto-detection: using msbuild version '4.0' from '/usr/lib/mono/4.5'. MsBuild.exe does not exist at '/usr/lib/mono/4.5/msbuild.exe'. Result is the same, no matter if I use a debian docker or ubuntu. What did I do wrong? Anything I am missing here?

    Build From GIT

    Right off the bat it seems the MediaBrowser.Mono.Build.sh is flawed. Readme.txt * Go to the script location via CLI. * "chmod +x MediaBrowser.Mono.Build.sh", if script is not executable. * $ ./MediaBrowser.Mono.Build.sh * Two packages will be available in mediabrowser/: * MediaBrowser.Mono.v.x.yyyy.zzzzz.tar.gz * MediaBrowser.Mono.mkbundlex.v.x.yyyy.zzzzz.tar.gz When you run the script from the MediaBrowser/Tools/Linux_Build_Scripts directory it starts to clone the mediabrowser git from github. This is redundant since the git was already cloned. MBGITPATH="MediaBrowser" If anything, it would seem that the build should happen outside of the src dir. |RootPath -SrcPath -SrcBuild instead of |RootPath -|SrcPath -|Tools -|Linux_Build_Scripts -mediabrowser <- it's fine if the build is done here, but just DON'T reclone the git source you're already under.
  8. Hi, I'm looking for a suggestion on building (or repurposing) a machine. Most of the ones that I've read have been general purpose machines for a lot of things. I'm really just looking for a machine that will be able to run MB3 server and transcode and stream up to a max of 8 different movies at the same time. There will be other programs running but minor ones. Is Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 preferred? Does it matter? Clients 2-3 MBT or MBC on Local LAN - Direct Play - No transcoding 2 - Local LAN Roku 3 - Local Wireless IOS 1 - Remote Roku 2 - Remote IOS I know these might not all be supported at this time but I want to take into account all of this for future overhead and not have to build again. Everything will be streamed from a NAS that is connected via gigabit ethernet. Mostly Movies and TV. Movies all 1080p source and TV is 720p source. My goal is not the break the bank but I'd like to get the best quality parts I can for the money right now as I'd rather not have to upgrade it in 2 years. Thanks for the help Josh
