  1. I did search for this topic and it was a mixed bag, so I apologize in advanced if this has been ask/answered. I am currently running a new (to me) DSM 6.1 build (15047). My hardware is: FM2 motherboard Athlon A6 CPU 8 gigs DDR 3 RAM I/O Crest 4 Port SATA III Controller Card Marvell 9215 Non-Raid SI-PEX40064 4x 3 Terabyte in RAID 6 16g Corsair USB flash Standard VGA I am wanting to install a couple of TV Tuners for a PLEX install. I have on hand 2x AVerMedia A188 HD Duet - Dual ATSC PCI-E TV Tuner Am I needing to install drivers for this? Will this be good enough for trans-coding? What would be recommended replacements of any of the above other that HD?
  2. Mig, What Tuner card are you using and more importantly, did you need and if so how did you install drivers for your cards. Not finding a lot of information on this. Thanks
  3. Olegin, Thank you for replying to this thread. I did not mention my hardware because I did not think it mattered. But regardless, my hardware info is below and thanks again for the reply.

  4. Have you had any luck?
  5. Hey nemesis, thanks for the offer. I have since took the dive and updated to 6.1. My issue now is finding a way to use my current RAID controller or find one that is already included in the 6.1 build. Either works for me. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them.🙂
  6. I was able to watch this video and was able to get 6.1 installed and it migrated my 4.2 files and configuration. I had the same issue as you with it freezing due to not having the correct synoboot. But once I figured that out. I was able to get it done in less than 20 minutes. That including the migrating of files. Now I just need to figure out how to get my original RAID drive to be seen. I know its a driver issue. Just not sure where to go from here.
  7. What is the next build after 4.3? Is it 5?
  8. I first want to apologize if this issue has been addressed. I searched this forum but did not find anything on this subject. If there is a thread on this, please kindly post it I will start my research there. I am using a home built unit (custom PC with RAID 5, 4 disk) with the software noted below. It was installed using an USB drive. Does the USB drive need to be installed at all times? Or is it just needed for the install? I have never removed it to test. When attempting to upgrade (even within the same version, like from 4.2-3211 to 4.2-3827) it fails either in error or in not completing process. I have read in some places to disable HTTPS and that has been done. Process 1: Upgrading from within the system by letting it DL the next upgrade, in this case 4.2-3827. Start Download the recommended version Get the DSM DL complete notice Click on Upgrade Now Confirm with Yes on the next screen "Preparing for system update" window pops up Then get the Unknown Error Occurs (Error 21). End Process 2: Upgrading from a manually downloaded 4.2-3827 on external drive Start File downloaded to a folder that is shared with open access to all file read\write for everyone Select 3827 Confirm on the next window Transferring data to the server. Please wait... After 2 mins, "Unknown Error occurs (Error No:21) End Process 3: Upgrading from a manually downloaded 4.2-3827 on a folder from the NAS Start: File downloaded to a folder that is on NAS that has open access to all \\DISKSTATION\music Select 3827 Confirm on the next window Transferring data to the server. Please wait... Clears logs (Notice log window clearing out) Preparing for system update... And we wait...................................................... This is where it will sit for as long as I would let it. Hit back button to end process and restart server. End This time I just notice that the system is asking for JAVA. Not sure if this is going to help or hurt but I installed it successfully. Process 4: Server Restarted and confirmed all services has stopped. Upgrading from within the system by letting it DL the next upgrade, in this case 4.2-3827. Start Download the recommended version (Taking much longer to DL, this is after going thru system and turning down all services. Java v6.37 installed) Get the DSM DL complete notice Click on Upgrade Now Confirm with Yes on the next screen "Preparing for system update" window pops up Update Progress.... YAH!!!!! (Got all the way up to 3%) Short lived... DSM Update: Unknown error occours (Error 21). End Any assistance you can provide would be grateful Model Name: DSM3612xs Current DSM Version: DSM 4.2-3211 DSM date: 2013/04/16
  9. I am hoping to revive this topic. I never did get any assistance last time. I am back in the mode now of trying yet again to get some answers. Any assistance would be appreciated. I think I can create another disk with 4.2 on it and boot it up instead of the 4.2 disk, but not sure. The attached pic is of the error that I keep getting regardless of how I attempt the upgrade.

  10. Bearcat, THANKS! This is great information!
  11. Hello From Platte City, MO! Built my first (and only) server in 2013 using 4.2 Learning a lot from the many post here
  12. I was told that I formed my last post badly. I will attempt to ask the question another way. I have a 4.2 server I am attempting to upgrade to at least v5. I currently keep the Compact Flash drive in the computer because I am thinking it is needed to boot the system. Is this true? Does the OS reside on each of the drives in my array? If I created a new compact flash drive with the new OS, will it see the older volume? The array is managed by the controller not the OS.
