  1. Loader version and type (918+): 1.03a2 DS918+ DSM version in use (including critical update): DSM 6.2-23739 Update 2 Using custom modules/ramdisk? If yes which one?: None Hardware details: - ASRock H270M-ITX/ac (wifi module deleted) - Intel Pentium G4560T - 16GB DDR4 memory Disks: - 3x 128GB SSD - 2x 8TB HDD Sadly the NVME ssd is not recognized. Both (Intel) NICs work. Transcoding works. Everything was installed without any issue or "modding".

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    How big is your PAT file? I also had this problem before and was getting the error 13 notification.. But then I noticed that I had downloaded the update file and not the whole install file. PAT update = -40 MB PAT install = +200 MB https://ukdl.synology.com/download/DSM/

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    I know that most times TurboBoost is not working. I'm also active in the Hackintosh scene and it was a problem there too. They made so called dsdt and ssdt files to tell the system what the possible CPU (and Boost) frequencies are. Maybe that's possible for DSM to since it's Linux based? Edit: Link to some information https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guid ... sdt.52683/

    DSM 6.1.x Loader

    It's on the official Synology website. https://usdl.synology.com/download/DSM/ ... date_pack/ Pick the right version (8451-8) and download the 3615xs pat file.
  5. If you want them to show up add the vmdk as a IDE device. But keep on dreaming, Synology Cache does not work in a virtual environment. Trust me, I've tried it loads of times. Yes you can add them as cache disk, it even starts too sync, but the sync will fail.
  6. What repo has Emby? https://cytec.us/spk/
  7. Search for "Emby". It is currently in beta but it runs fine! Initial indexing/downloading fanart setup took 8 hours (262 movies, 8 tv series). But it's great! In that period it asks a lot of CPU and memory! to run Emby you need to install these packages too: - Debian Chroot - ffmpeg - ImageMagick - MediaInfo - Mono
  8. The boot image of Xpenology needs a BIOS to work. Macbooks do not have a BIOS, they have (U)EFI. UEFI is much faster. Until the boot image does not support UEFI it will not work. If it's only about installing Plex you can install Ubuntu. Follow this guide: https://forums.plex.tv/index.php/topic/ ... tu-server/
  9. Well.. it's not as easy as that. But yes, it's possible. I've done it too. I'm guessing you have data on your current disks? prerequisites: - USB boot/HDD boot for Esxi (to run the Esxi OS) - Seperate datastore in Esxi (to route the RDM disks) - SSH enabled in Esxi for setting up RDM on each data disk You can set your current harddrives in Esxi as RDM (Raw Device Mapping) drives. How to set RD for your disks: http://blog.davidwarburton.net/2010/10/ ... -for-esxi/ If you want to fully convert to Esxi/VMware with VMDK disks then this is only possible with RAID1/RAID5/SHR (or better). Or you have a spare disk laying around. Edit: You can skip step 1, 5 and 6 if you know what you are doing.. 1. Remove your data disks 2. Setup Esxi 3. Setup Datastore 4. Download VMDK en setup VM 5. Shutdown server 6. Add your data disks 7. Start Esxi 8. Follow guide to add RDM data disks: http://blog.davidwarburton.net/2010/10/ ... -for-esxi/ 9. Add the RDM data disks to VM 10. Power up the VM 11. Enjoy your Xpenology running on VMware Optional if you want to go fully virtual (only possible if you have your data mirrored): 12. Shutdown the VM 13. Remove 1 RDM data disk from the VM 14. Remove that 1 RDM file from your datastore 15. Add that 1 disk as data store. 16. Add a new VM disk to the VM that you will create on your newly made datastore. (i'll advise thin-provision) 17. Power up the VM 18 Go to: :5000 and login 19. Synology will now say that a volume is degreaded. It also finds a new disk (the one you've created in the new datastore). 20. Let Synology repair the volume with your new VM disk If you choose to do the optional part, you will loose SMART status reads. But it will give you the flexibility of VM's. RDM disks are in base rule faster then datastores.. But RDM disks can not benifit the use of SSD's cache. Left side: RDM disk-------------------------------------------------------------Right side: VM disk Edit2: Esxi6 has different drivers. You will need to test this yourself and find out.
  10. I would still advise to change only the CPU. Look over here to see which CPU's are support by your main board: http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloa ... x?pid=2887 If you want energy efficient: AM3 Athlon II X4 620e (with bios update 7FI) Or Performance @95 watt: Phenom II X6 1065T (with bios update 7FI) Another performance @95 watt: Phenom II X4 960T (with bios update 7FI) You have loads of choices to gain performance! A second hand AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition costs 30 euro and a AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 55 euro in my country... The prices are not the deal breakers.
  11. I have a Intel Q6600 and runs Plex great. Comparing to your cpu the Q6600 is slightly better: http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core2-Qua ... om-X4-9550 What kind of "slow" are you experiencing? Video stutters?
  12. Thanks a lot, it now works again. I was scared that I had lost all my data but you made my day.
  13. The transcoding is done by your CPU. I think your CPU does not support hardware transcoding for the format that you are using in PLEX. So your CPU is soft-transcoding it which results in slow/bad video. Can you tell us which CPU and mainboard you are running? Most likely to resolve this you need to upgrade your CPU. Some AM2+ mainboards have a BIOS update available to make it possible to run a AM3 processor in it. Check your mainboard manufactuers website to see if it does. It can save you money in that way by upgrading only the CPU.
  14. Hi there, It's great to see and read that there is a lot of development going on here. I really appriciate the time and effort that is put in to it. But.. I've got a problem since upgrading DSM doesn't see any HDD anymore. Running DSM 5.1-5022 update 2 on: ReadyNAS Pro 6 - Mainboard: Netgear x86 socket 775 mini ITX - CPU: Q6600 Quad-Core 2.4 GHz - Memory 4GB DDR2 - Chipset: ICH8R with 6x SATA disk via pci-e x1 - 2x Network: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller - VGA: Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller - BIOS: Winbond W25x80 DSM says that there are no availible HDD's and that there are 0 slots. Is there a config edit needed via SSH? I hope someone can help me out.
  15. I also have a Pro 6.. Only I've fitted a Q6600, so I get 2 temps extra: NASSYN> sensors coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Core 0: +34.0°C (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 1: +36.0°C (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 2: +36.0°C (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 3: +32.0°C (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) NASSYN> I get stuck on the same thing as you do.
