  1. really? compatibility, portability, upgradability - it's the future man the only apps i have on my xpeonology box are video station (for tuner support and hardware transcoding drivers) and docker. i've got 13 dockers running which remain perfectly intact after a reinstall or clean upgrade of DSM. only way to go IMO
  2. why not just use a unifi docker? super easy to auto update (via watchtower) and self contained
  3. bud - if you read any other thread about 6.2.1 you'd know that third party ethernet adapters only work in DSM 6.2 and below. As soon as you jump up to 6.2.1, you play yourself. either switch over to E1000 or drop back to 6.1.7 or 6.2
  4. yeah man - just create a virtual com port (make sure it presents itself as COM1 to the VM) and you should see the boot progress. Once it's finished starting up, you can login just as if you were SSH'd in.

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    go this one matey. nothing really new in 6.2 and saves you accidently upgrading to 6.2.1 (which won't work with your realtek NICs. once you're on 6.1.7, just set your update settings to this:

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    not worth it man.. while you might get the GPU driver to load, it doesn't help the the kernel version being incompatible with these boards. the overall system is super slow to boot and not worth using (imo :))

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    you can always use Jun's Loader v1.03b DS3615xs to get to 6.2 but you'll need an intel NIC to get to 6.2.1 just no hardware transcoding

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Nah, just get another board There's an compatibility problem with Linux kernel 4.4.57 and these boards. I think the best hope is that DSM 7 runs on a newer kernel and Jun can perform his magic

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Ah ok. Yeah I didn't try esx on the j4455-m. It only has 2 sata ports which isn't enough for me and I was trying to avoid extra cards If you can run esx and passthrough the GPU, the -m model might be the best pick of the three. Maybe I'll give it a shot!

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    nah this doesn't work. the GPU is in the same IOMMU group as the network card - so once you assign the GPU to a VM and boot it, you lose all network connectivity.

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    I spent a tiny bit more time on these boards and found something interesting. I installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and it ran perfectly fine - fast to boot and responsive. However, after purposely downgrading the kernel to 4.4.57 (matching the kernel version of 1.04b / DSM 6.2) - these boards take ages to load and feel sluggish. So i reckon as soon as the kernel is upgraded, we might be in luck (maybe excluding the last board in my list above due to the i915 driver crashing). On another note - i picked up a gigabyte B85M-HD3G / i5 4570S / 8GB DDR second hand for $100 and it rocks using the 1.04b bootloader. Super quick and full hardware acceleration (for h264). Thanks again Jun
  12. hi guys - would it be possible to add in the saa7164 driver? I've got this crazy hope that if it can be done, i can provide plex with 2 x HVR-2200 tuners which it supports natively. Just need to get them working in DSM to start with
  13. Hi guys, I'm a bit out of my depth here but I'm really hoping I can get a couple of HVR-2200 tuners working in DSM6.1 or DSM6.2. I'm currently running Jun's DS918+ loader which is kernel 4.4.57(+?) so figured I'd load up ubuntu on another machine, install the same kernel version and copy the file from it over to DSM. Of course it didn't work but how does one go about compiling a version of the saa7164 driver into DSM? I noticed that there's already another similar module but the sizes are way different: -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 30579 Oct 27 00:14 saa7115.ko -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 223582 Dec 9 12:41 saa7164.ko and trying to force load it: sh-4.3# insmod saa7164.ko insmod: ERROR: could not insert module saa7164.ko: Invalid module format Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! Or even better, if someone would be able to compile a version for me that would be awesome! Thanks
  14. Ok, but the 1.04b loader only works on Haswell CPUs or above. Any Haswell (or above) motherboards will boot from it without any modification. That was my point
