Just to update. I think my problem is solved
The problem was 2 part
1. I sorted out the RAID config which reduced the amount of freezes (that was my bad)
and the more interesting find
2. If you are transcoding on a partition of the same drive (a HDD that is) where the BD MKV is stored, it really doesn't like it - Large sequential reads and then writes on another sector (this is what was doing it) - It is improved on the SSD but I don't see any SSD lasting too long in that setting.
The solution to 2 was to pop in a spare SSD (128GB) for transcoding which fixed everything.
I just said I would pass on the above in case someone else finds themselves in the same boat.
Thanks again for your assistance
(One sidenote question - I plan to format my Emby server soon to change the OS to Server 2016 - With regard to my license, is there any special procedure to follow or will it just work if I pop in the same key?)Go to the full post
