  1. Thanks. I was aware of the different connectors, but somehow I got confused and mistook there was a nwme which was the same as sata. The page I linked contains an nvme, which I didn't notice. Mine was the sata ssd. Thanks everyone for your help.
  2. Thank you very much. The link was an interesting reading. My ssd states Sata, but somehow I got confused and thought it wouldn't be compatible.
  3. My ssd drive has got a sata conector with a specified maximum speed of 6Gb/s. Can I assume it has nothing to do with NVMe?
  4. How can I know if it is a regular Sata SSD disk or a NVMe SSD? The drive I intend to use a main and only disk is Seagate Ironwolf 3.84tb Red Nas Ssd https://www.seagate.com/as/en/internal-hard-drives/ssd/ironwolf-nas-ssd/ How can I know if it is a regular Sata SSD disk or a NVMe SSD? Any feature in the specs I should pay attention to? Thanks.
  5. I already suspected that it Dsm cannot be relocated to another drive once it is install. In order to do it I guess a fresh install would be required, right? I meant if there is any problem to do a fresh install on an ssd. This would be the drive Seagate Ironwolf 3.84tb Nas Ssd https://www.seagate.com/as/en/internal-hard-drives/ssd/ironwolf-nas-ssd/
  6. By the way, I don't know if it's a stupid question. Is it possible to install Xpenology on an SSD? I have a 4tb ssd which I plan to use a main and only drive.
  7. I don't know how old your devices are, but WebOs 2 sound pretty old (8+ years???). I have been using (free) Plex with no problem in subtitles and video and audio. My Fire Tv stick and my Lg Web OS 4.5 could manage subtitles perfectly. With my Web OS 4.5 LG tv transcoding worked line a charm with avi video files and dts audio. As for the fire tv stick, transcoding h265 files (1.5gb) work fairly well. I have replaced my old tv and fire tv with a brand new lg web os 5.0 and everything works fine too. A little remark. When I say that transcoding worked fine, I mean Cpu transcoding, not
  8. Thank you very much for your quick reply. I intend to go for loader 1.04b and dsm 6.2.3 or newest release available. I just wanted to know if anyone has the same device and could guide on the best choice. As for hw transcoding in plex, I am not planning on paying Plex Pass for now since my tv's are relatively new and would manage most of recent codecs, so I'll skip Pass. I just wanted to know if free hw transcoding was possible in case I would need it. But if I happen to need it, I guess CPU transcoding would do.
  9. Hi. I got my hands on an Intel Nuc NUC7PJYH with j5005 cpu, 4gb and a large Nas ssd. I would like to know which would be the best bootloader version and dsm version for it and, if possible, a way to enable hardware transcoding in Plex (free version). I have been checking some older threads but I got a bit confused. Thank you very much.
  10. Of course. I had already considered it. Thanks. I was thinking about changing the power source and I considered to use a pico psu.
  11. We tried Jun's 1.04b 918+ but it was unstable. It took a long time to boot and shutdown, and it wasn't detected in Lan. Other users reported problems with asrock j3455 and the latest dsm versions. What dsm version did you install in your Asrock j3455 itx?
  12. That's surprising. A friend of mine has just built his xpenology with an Asrock J3455-itx 4Gb and 1x2TB WD blue 2.5" and he reported 9w by using a pico psu. I don't know if there are any differences between your M mobo version and my friend's itx. Are you using a standard psu or a pico psu? Could I know what bootloader and Dsm version you are using?. He had some trouble with newer dsm versions, so he finally installed 1.03b on 916+ with dsm 6.1.7.
  13. Hi. I have a built with an Asrock Q1900-itx with 4Gb Ram and a 2TB WD Red drive. I know it is a very efficient mobo. I'm not trying to be stingy on consumption. The point is that my psu is somehow old and I may replace it, so I don't know if I should go for a regular psu or a pico psu. My current built with my old psu consumes 19w on idle (no hibernation because of plex). Those having the same mobo could you, please, post your consumption on psu or pico psu? Please, indicate how many drives you have and if they are 2.5 or 3.5w. Thank you very much.
  14. Thanks. We had seen the thread before. His cpu is apollo lake. He tried 6.2.1 but if was unstable and transcoding didn't work at all. I may be wrong, but I think transcoding is not possible in ds3615. That's why he chose 918. He has found a what seens to be the solution in this thread
