  1. Yep, I think that no hardware transcoding is a no go... Even though thank you very much for all the valuable explanations as I think I have now a better understanding of it. Xpenology is great, I am using it for more than a year now, and being a previous original synology owner (DS1512+), I think that xpenology totally worth it as it is completely stable and works amazingly well being MUCH more powerful than the original machines and a fraction of the cost and totally functional. What you said about compiling a new kernel should be great!! Is it that hard to do it? Did someone attempted and succeeded already?? Is it possible to do it without recompiling the kernel and using Vanilla kernel doing patches in the fly in a loader like clover or opencore like in hackintosh community? Just thinking loud, don't know if any of this is even possible...
  2. Gotcha. Just one question. Let's say that I have configured my NAS with my 5x8Tb HDs with the DS918+ (not knowing that limitation). How can I use now the DS3617xs without starting from scratch... as I don't think if a change my USB boot from 1.04b to 1.03b will do the magic... right?
  3. I know that was purely aesthetic and not enabling anything, but as I suspected, there is really a limitation of the hardware itself. Thanks for the details, didn't know about them. Is there any way to break the limitation to get the full use of the cores here? The improvement for some people could be huge...
  4. Please add to the macOS tutorial, how to mount the other partition, in order to modify the extra.lzma/extra2.lzma: mkdir /tmp/partition2 sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk2s2 /tmp/partition2 Although I find a problem to eject/unmount it properly... and that's why I wanted to have some help with that I said the same in the most recent thread too.

  6. Still doesn't work for me either. As I said in the page 6. Mine is a i7 8700, and is 6 cores - 12 thread, and still is saying 6 cores / 8 threads, it looks like we never see more than 8, being enabled perfectly in the BIOS.
  7. Sorry for my lack of knowledge, but I don't know how DSM is structured. I know that part of the space of the hard disks are not part of the filer but the SO itself (that's why we have much less space when we create volumes) it is a pity is not in another external drive instead of wasting space there. Coming back to the structure, I don't know how it is mapped in the hard disk, I mean, which is the part of the OS, which is limited, I understand why is mapped with places in the Volume, just to not waste space, and survive updates (unless the symlinks are deleted in the folder where is mapped, with a DSM update which overrides everything). I guess with File Station, we are not able to see the whole structure of it and just with and ssh, we can see and navigate correctly. That's why most of us, don't know how is the real structure, as we just can see the Volume/s. Could you please, brief me the basic paths and maps of the file structure? Sorry about it, I am sure is super basic, but I don't know. For that I need to know a little bit about how is structured. It seems is not a usual linux system map. I will take a look for sure. It is not free. Maybe it will change with DSM 7.0, but is still paid. Being xpenology so good (I am coming for an original DS1512+ product during so many years), and how well it works, I am looking forward to see a new loader for the DSM 7 which is supposed to be released soon. I am a little bit worried since there is no change in the loaders for a long time (I always used the 1.04b), which works pretty well. Thanks for all your useful information.
  8. Sorry I am lost. I didn't understand a lot of things you said: - What is the meaning of "SPK"? - Is the place /usr/local or /usr/local/bin the place to install it? - I already have docker installed. I don't know what do you want me to look...
  9. Hello, I was just taking a look in order to install the exfat support for synology: https://github.com/luckylz2git/exfat-synology What I don't know is if it survives a DSM update (as it looks it is copying to /bin). Just let me know what could be a good location for installing a third party app in the path and be able to survive a DSM update without any problem, without the need of changing the path variable (witch I am sure it will be changed with DSM update) . Thanks.
  10. I am very sorry for the delay. Find here the command line result: As you can see is incorrect (8 processors are shown instead of 12). Find here the correct info for the i7 8700 processor: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/es/es/ark/products/126686/intel-core-i7-8700-processor-12m-cache-up-to-4-60-ghz.html
  11. +1 Number of threads of the i7 8700 is incorrect!! I guess the calculation is wrong... If the owner of the script is about to support the 6.2.2-24922 version, could as well fix the bug... Even though it is really good to see your processor and not the crappy celeron one...
  12. Hello, This is mine: "activated_codec":["h264_dec","h264_enc","mpeg4part2_dec","aac_dec","aac_enc","vc1_dec","vc1_enc","hevc_dec","ac3_dec"] This is the original poster list: "activated_codec":["hevc_dec","h264_dec","h264_enc","mpeg4part2_dec","ac3_dec","vc1_dec","vc1_enc","aac_dec","aac_enc","mpeg4part2_enc"] mpeg4part2_enc is missing in mine... WEIRD!!
  13. I couldn't make plex work, but jellyfin... I don't know how... Could you please let me know briefly... I am doing something wrong, for sure... In the log it says: Critical: libusb_init failed Should be great a guide of good practices using docker, as I see potential issues, just for misconfiguring it... could you please point out to a good place?
