Hi, I removed the faulty i915 drivers from extra, you can download and test it here. hw transcoding is working but performance is low on both videostation and plex but I don't think is related to the loader. on ASRock j4205-ITX you have to unplug any monitor before using hw transcoding otherwise the system will reboot, this one might be due to /dev/dri permissions or the DP to hdmi coverter on this board. reboot/shutdown is working properly again. I recommend doing a clean install, formatting the hard drive before testing. You can test disabling video outputs in the grub, for me it didn't install properly. video=eDP:d video=DP-1:d video=HDMI-A-1:d video=HDMI-A-2:d root@DS918:~# ls /dev/dri card0 controlD64 renderD128 root@DS918:~# cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_frequency_info PM IER=0x00000070 IMR=0xffffff8f ISR=0x00000000 IIR=0x00000000, MASK=0x00003fae pm_intr_keep: 0x80000000 GT_PERF_STATUS: 0x006030cb Render p-state ratio: 48 Render p-state VID: 203 Render p-state limit: 0 RPSTAT1: 0x12000030 RPMODECTL: 0x00000d92 RPINCLIMIT: 0x000027d8 RPDECLIMIT: 0x00005a00 RPNSWREQ: 800MHz CAGF: 600MHz RP CUR UP EI: 3192 (2660us) RP CUR UP: 477 (397us) RP PREV UP: 0 (0us) Up threshold: 85% RP CUR DOWN EI: 5109 (4257us) RP CUR DOWN: 482 (401us) RP PREV DOWN: 0 (0us) Down threshold: 60% Lowest (RPN) frequency: 100MHz Nominal (RP1) frequency: 250MHz Max non-overclocked (RP0) frequency: 800MHz Max overclocked frequency: 800MHz Current freq: 800 MHz Actual freq: 600 MHz Idle freq: 100 MHz Min freq: 100 MHz Boost freq: 800 MHz Max freq: 800 MHz efficient (RPe) frequency: 250 MHz Current CD clock frequency: 624000 kHz Max CD clock frequency: 624000 kHz Max pixel clock frequency: 624000 kHz [ 127.551937] ACPI: Power Button [PWRB] [ 127.601681] Linux agpgart interface v0.103 [ 127.674041] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810 [ 127.809306] [drm] Memory usable by graphics device = 4096M [ 127.882071] [drm] Supports vblank timestamp caching Rev 2 (21.10.2013).

ilovepancakes posted a topic in DSM 6.xSo I had DSM 6.1 running in a 3617 loader v1.02 on a Dell T300 baremetal tower. I used the video station package to host my library. Transcoding worked with video station as in I could select playback quality "low" in the video player on either DS Video apps or the web interface and DSM would transcode on the fly and stream me a low quality version of the film or tv show. I can't say for certain but I am pretty sure this was software transcoding since I didn't have a GPU in the machine and I wasn't running the 916 loader. Now.... I have recently switched to a virtual environment with ESXi and have successfully gotten DSM 6.2 running on a 3615 1.03 loader VM. Video station works, but the above transcoding situation does NOT. When I click a different quality besides original, it stops the video, and has a loading wheel that never finishes. If I change back to original, the video plays again. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why.... I am running ESXi on an R720xd with E5-2630v2 CPU which I'm pretty sure is newer than the T300's CPU... Anyone have any ideas where I can begin to debug or fix this issue? I am not even looking for true hardware transcoding, just transcoding to work like it did on the older T300....
can anyone tell me the downsides of having a separate mini PC (i.e. intel nuc) to front as the plex server instead of using the DSM? my current setup is an asrock J1900DC-ITX in a fractal design node with 5 HDs (4 using onboard SATA, 1 using a iocreate SATA pci card). my DSM is ds3617xs on 6.2. the DSM is currently my plex server. if i buy a NUC J3455 (or J5005), install windows 10 home, install the latest plex server and add movies/TV media from the DSM, i can expect hw transcoding (enabled for plex pass holders) to work, right? thanks for any help. dh22r
i like to have your review for my analysis for best CPU for 4K transcoding. My targets: as much as possible codecs via hardware transcoding, less costs (<80€) , best for future 4K usage During my analysis i checked latest Synology models (here: DS918+) using hardware transcoding (see overview table here: link) Also i added currently used by XPENOLOGY (here: DS916, DS3615, DS3617) And latest my choise; Pentium G4600 Overview DS918+ Intel Celeron J3455 (Appollo lake) DS916 Intel Pentium N3710 (Braswell) DS3615 Intel Core i3-4130 (Haswell) DS3617 Intel Xeon D-1527 (Broadwell) My CPU Intel Pentium G4600 (Kaby Lake) after full compare https://ark.intel.com/compare/95594,91830,77480,91195,97453 i could sort out - Pentium N3710 ($161) and Xeon ($259) and i3-4130($117) as too expensive Update: https://ark.intel.com/compare/95594,97453 Then i had a look to future of 4K transcoding here and here and here and made comparism (did not found available CPU with AV1 Codec ) https://www.technikaffe.de/cpu_vergleich-intel_celeron_j3455-662-vs-intel_pentium_g4600-700 especially the table with codecs shows me that for me Pentium G4600 is best - 70€ (link, sorry in german) - many codec in hardware and h265 10 bit support - also T-Version with 35watts is available please share your analysis and give me hints if i forgot impotant things for future
