    Move from macOS to Linux

    Hi there , i think about to move from my mac mini to a Intel NUC with Linux. Now i have a few Questions : is there a clean way to backup restore all settings without rebuilding the Library? I think about a 10th Generation i5 NUC will this be a good choice even for transcoding? (Max 2 streams) besides emby is FHEM,iobroker and a TVheadend Server running. Server only - no tv attached which OS would you prefer ? Ubuntu? Debian? Thanks for tipps

    basic networking question

    I've been using emby since before it was emby, always been happy with it. I just run the server and client off my desktop computer and watch movies there. I'm finally ready to move into the current century. I want my server to be always on and be able to stream movies the to roku on my tv, or to tablets etc. To this end the system I have in mind is purchasing a NAS and moving my library to it, then purchasing a NUC and putting emby on it (and J River MC). The NAS will be hardwired to my router and send files wirelessly to the NUC, the NUC will then send the movie to the roku and/or tablets wirelessly. The question I have is when purchasing the NAS do I need one that does transcoding? if the server on the NUC is transcoding seems like you want the NAS to just send the file without messing with it. The NAS I have in mind is a synology DS218J (no transcoding) or a synology DS218. The later I would buy just for some future proofing, it has more memory and a better cpu, but it does do transcoding and I don't know if that can be turned off. As for the NUC, no decision yet, just a minimum config of intel I5 and 4 gigs ram. Any experienced suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
  3. My Emby server works fine, but often I have buffering issues where it takes forever for a movie to load, and sometimes it doesnt even load at all. I just see the circle wait symbol keep spinning. A lot of my movies are 1080p, but I change the transcoding to 720p with 4MB/s. It improved the playback and loading speed somewhat, but sometimes the movie just doesnt load at all. Standard definition tends to load and play much better. Skipping to certain time points in a movie almost always causes the Emby client crash, and I have to restart the box. Im looking into options to improve my setup, and identify where the bottleneck is. I run my Emby server on Ubuntu 18.04 on an Intel NUC with i5 processor, 8gb RAM. The box is connected to my WIFI router via ethernet cord. My movies are stored on a 4GB portable SSD external hard-drive (connected via USB 3.0). I always set my CPU freq to Performance (2.7ghz). My Emby client is on an X96 android box connected to my TV via HDMI. The box connects to my WIFI via the wifi 2.4 ghz. My WIFI has 5ghz option, but my android box does not. If I was to replace anything, I'd get a new box with 5GHz wifi option to increase the bandwidth as I think this is the bottleneck culprit, although, I do sometimes get the same buffering issues when playing from my web browser on my laptop, which is connected by ethernet cord to the router, so the wireless transmission may not be the only issue. But for the time being, are there options in in the transcoding that I can utilize to speed up to the data transfer? - My NUC box has Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640. What hardware acceleration options would I have? - Would increasing Transcoding thread count help? - Would changing the H.264 encoding preset help? - Are there any options on my Android client that I can tinker with to increase loading speed and fix buffering issues?
  4. Dear, I trying many configuration on my emby installed on a i5 nuc with 8gb DDR3 Video files are stored into a Drobo. No problem with h264 but i'm struggling with HEVC H265 encoded files they freeze, sometimes even start or lag with audio and so on By your opinion what's the suggested configuration in trascoding option for HW acceleration? There other options i can manage to get better results? I'm actually running on Intel Quicksynk Thank you in advance Regards

    emby addon kodi no library sync on wake

    I use the Emby addon (2.2.10) with Kodi (16.1) on an Intel NUC with rapid start enabled. This allows me to keep the NUC in a sleep/powered off state but still start up in a few seconds however this means that Kodi is rarely restarted. My Emby server is woken up with a wake on LAN add on upon wake of the NUC. I have noticed that when waking from sleep I do not get the Emby log on notification that I receive when I open Kodi fresh. This seems to effect real time updating of the libraries. Playback is not effected. This was not the case in previous builds of the addon where I would get either an error saying the server could not be reached or a welcome notification. Is this normal behavior?

    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
  7. I have been using WD/Roku boxes in the past and am looking to a long term solution. I have 2 1080p displays w/HDMI. 1 has a soundbar and 1 is just builtin speakers (which ). I use emby, netflix, pandora amazon and youtube (more or less in that order). My intial impulse is to grab 2 Intel NUC's and load them with ubuntu w/kodi for my 2 displays- but I have never done this kind of build. I am partial to open source - and OpenELEC didn't seem as robust as kodi. So I have some rather amateurish questions: What is the kind of low end solution to streaming 5.1 audio? I am looking at Home Theatres in a box, specifically Onkyo because I was told their build quality is worth it. I read somewhere that computers often convert audio to 2 streams before pushing it over HDMI. The whole point is I want 5.1 is to get that spatial aspect - so that would completely defeat the point. I have never built an HTPC, can i consolidate remotes? How do you consolidate remotes when you have IR and RF remotes. I prefer RF or wireless but don't have enough knowledge of IR/RF blasters/recievers and how they interact with both hardware and software. Please excuse my ignorance! thanks!
  8. 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 experience with NUC as emby servers ? Many thanks in advance. Regards, Carlos
  9. Hi folks, I'm feeling restless, and kind of want to buy a NUC or something similar to play with. I'd like to have a tiny little PC, and use it to learn more about Linux, beyond some poking around I've done in VirtualBox builds. I've played with straight Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Xubuntu. One of the things I'd do on it is use it as a small EMBY client. Not because I have to, but it would be fun. This would be done via the Kodi client, right? I came close to buying one of the recent crop of Intel NUC variants, but apparently at least some of them don't work well headless... I can see this NUC possibly being decapitated at some point and managed remotely. Then I read up on some of the BRIX and similar boxes... but it didn't seem like the specs were as competitive. So I figured I'd go to the most knowledgeable group of folks I know for some insight. I'd love to hear what small form factor NUC, BRIX, BXI, etc. things you've got, and from a theater perspective what you like and dislike about them, how you've set them up, which Linux variant you like... I don't need a powerful machine, really I'm looking for a playground more than anything. Thanks in advance for any thoughts you've got. Marc

    Intel’s NUC 2.0 leaks

    I thought this was interesting. I love my NUC. The next generation will definitely be something to look out for. Intel’s NUC 2.0 leaks: The next unit of Steam Machines and home theater PCs
