  1. I meant to say NetCAST, the operating system on LG TVs I have
  2. Regarding the Plex server (Version and LG TV clients (Version 2.5.3?) seems to work fine with transcoder option in automatic. If you disable DTS convert option it will play anything without problems (via Wifi, too). I did have problems playing content from LG TV and using DLNA. I disabled transcoding under Media Server - control panel in DSM, as soon as I disabled the video transcoding no more problems. I have the MediaCAST (NOT WebOS) in both LG TVs. The problem with android client is that is free only for a limited time, then you must go for the pass, but I have to say that 720
  3. TungIT75, First to your questions. Yes, you can manage the whole install process from your desktop/Laptop PC without connecting a Screen/Keyboard/Mouse to the XPEnology machine. That is the idea of IPMI, and well beyond that you can enter BIOS for the board using IPMI also, and of course login to the XPEnology command line (as you would on a SSH/Telnet session), you can even MAP a DVD/CD ROM drive from your laptop as if you had it connected to the XPEnology machine to install whatever, I think you can even do this from an ISO file without a DVD/CD Rom at all. So this LAN can only be used f
  4. Yea, Like Kei78 said, IPMI is a dedicated LAN that you can use to control the server as if you had a screen-keyboard-mouse remotelly and much more. Like monitor MB resources (temp. Volts, etc), update FW for MB, and other administrator stuff. It is a common function on Server Motherboards, and well worth it for a NAS config. Back to the initial question, I never disabled any controller, nor did I change SATA settings to IDE. I am running XPEnology 5.1 with AHCI in my BIOS and all SATA controllers ENABLED. I DO NOT have any drives connected to the SATAII ports, so this may be the reason for
  5. The actual link to the SATA controller firmware is this one http://www.asrockrack.com/support/ipmi.asp#Marvell9230 I guess the above one is for the IPMI
  6. I almost forgot, the most important, I am NOT using the 4 SATA2 ports so far. I have an 8 bay chassis (U-NAS 8 Bay) so I have no need. I assume also if you have the drives connected to multiples controllers under 1 single software RAID may change things. I have 1 single volume so far with 6x 1TB drives..... RAID6
  7. Hi again, Yes, the link in the Asrock web page is hard to see. Look here and see within the description of the MB there is a link http://www.asrockrack.com/support/ipmi.asp . it is posted here on the main product page, notice the "To update Marvell SE 9230 FW, please click here" within the specs for the Mother Board as pointed below. Kind of silly to put in in there like that, very easy to miss... C2550D4I ◦Intel Avoton C2550 Quad-Core Processor ◦DDR3 1600/1333 Dual-channel Max. 64GB UDIMM ◦2 SATA3 6.0Gbps, 4 SATA2 3.0Gbps by C2550 ◦4 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s by Marvell SE9230, 2 x S
  8. I just updated my ASRock C2550D4i Motherboard with the new Marvell SATA FW, wanted to know if anyone else tried it and if things got better as far as the SMART errors (and bad sector messages). I tried to expand my volume before this (on XPEnology 5.1 w/Raid 5) and had all kinds of problems. I am NOT using the 4 SATA II ports yet. My BIOS has always been configured as AHCI and never had trouble with 5x1TB disks installed until the 6th disk (and 7th disk) was added. Anyone has 8 or more disks on XPEnology 5.1.xx with any of these two Asrock Avoton boards?
