  1. Install fancontrol to improve your temps. Go back a few pages in this thread for instructions.
  2. I was able to get transcoding to work. I used v0.13.3 extras from this thread: "Driver extension jun 1.03b/1.04b for DSM6.2.3 for 918+ / 3615xs / 3617xs" Everything works now including hardware transcoding inside plex.
  3. I decided to just pull the trigger and apply the upgrade to 6.2.3. I was able to upgrade directly from "DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 6" to: 6.2.3-25426. I didn't have to do any additional tweaks. I simply upgraded from the UI and 10 minutes later my NAS was back up and running 6.2.3. Everything appears to work OK so far. I noticed that I lost hardware transcoding (i.e. no /dev/dri device) but I don't care.
  4. I will attempt it today. It would be great if you could post your notes here for everyone to see.
  5. Has anyone tried the latest 6.2.3-25426 with our F4-220? As per some other threads support for the Realtek r8168 chip should be included so it may just work out of the box.
  6. Thanks for clarifying. I did a "vanilla" upgrade (did not use a different extra2.lzma). I might give this another shot but for now I'm waiting for the rebuild/repair to finish. It's taking forever.
  7. With 6.2.2 my NAS would attempt to startup and then promptly stop working with a black screen. I could not connect to the web GUI nor ping it. I don't know if the whole system was crashing or if it was only the ethernet that would stop working.
  8. For the benefit of others who might try upgrading to 6.2.2-24922-4.... DON'T. It bricked my system and I spent 5 hours recovering. The raid is still repairing. I went back to 6.2.1-23824
  9. Can you confirm which version you successfully upgraded to? Was it 6.2.2-24922-4 ? Any issues booting or issues with ethernet? Thanks
  10. What do you mean by "program is working?" Can you hear the fan speed changing? If that's the case then you will probably need to experiment more with the parameters.
  11. You can try the one I compiled for DS918+, Loader: 1.04b, DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 6. See attached. If it doesn't work, your best bet is to research how to use docker with Synology. Then you would download a docker image with g++ and use that to compile the source code. There are some hints in this thread of how to compile it but learning docker is a pretty big topic. You'll need to research that on your own. fancontrol
  12. Look at Compuman's posts 65 and 66 in this thread. He created another version of fan control with an additional <test_temp> parameter. Give that version a try. If it's still not working then I suggest you build your own binary using a Docker image with G++.
  13. The binary may be working for you... Here is what my output looks like. I know it's working for me because I can hear the fan changing speeds. ./fancontrol 1 1 37 255 maxtemp = 39, error = -216.000000, pout = -216.000000, iout = 0.000000, dout = -0.000000, pwmtemp = 80.000000, pwm = 80 maxtemp = 38, error = -217.000000, pout = -217.000000, iout = 0.000000, dout = -0.000000, pwmtemp = 80.000000, pwm = 80 maxtemp = 37, error = -218.000000, pout = -218.000000, iout = 0.000000, dout = -0.000000, pwmtemp = 80.000000, pwm = 80 Few questions: 1) How did you compi
  14. Try turning the debug flag on. You should see some output after a few seconds.. For example: fancontrol 1 37 255 Also, with the above command, you should hear the fan start up at high RPM when you run the command.
  15. For those thinking of using this Terramaster box with VMware ESXi, my advice is DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. There are too many issues and the setup is not robust enough even for home use. Here are some serious issues: Hardware pass-through for disks is not fully working. This means that even if you get the drives to show up in Synology (this requires some command line hackery), S.M.A.R.T. info will not be readable by synology. This is a critical warning system that's too important to give up (IMHO) I couldn't get all 4 of my drives to show up in Synology. No matter what I tried onl
  16. This is very cool. 1) Can you share more details for how to use the "free space on internal USB stick" ? 2) Have you been able to improve the read/write performance of your setup? This is the only reason why I'm hesitating to do this.
  17. Yes. You can pick which USB or IDE drive to boot from.
  18. Try this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/12P-to-15P-VGA-Female-D-Sub-Adapter-12Pin-15Pin-VGA-connector-length-150mm-short-cable/32808546166.html

  20. I also upgraded from 6.1.7 to 6.2 using 1.03b. Also had to force legacy bios and manually updated the USB stick to be the boot device. So far, I'm seeing better performance while copying large files. 6.1.7 would stall sometimes and would take multiple seconds to resume. I almost never see it in 6.2. So far, 6.2 has been a great update. Anyone looking to upgrade using 1.03b need to have a monitor cable and a monitor to change bios settings.
