New build - hw transcoding check


Recommended Posts

Have been running DSM 5.2-5967 on old hardware for about 5 years.

 

Just built new box to replace. Going to rsync all 5TB of data from old to new. Just want to make sure new is setup correctly prior to data migration.

Hardware is
Gigabyte B365m DS3H
Intel i3 8100

8GB RAM

3 x 4TB Seagate Wolf drives

 

Generated a serial from google search, inserted real MAC and added VID & PID to grub.cfg

Have used Jun 1.04b with DSM_DS918+_25426.pat - Install went fine - so running 6.2.3 - 25426 Update 2

 

Want to ensure Emby will do hw transcoding before installing and migrating data.

I have checked /dev/dri - this is missing.

cat /usr/syno/etc/codec/activation.conf  - reports missing file.

Is this because there is nothing installed on the system yet? I have not installed anything at all.

Or do I need to replace the extra.lzma/extra2.lzma for loader 1.04b ds918+ DSM 6.2.3 v0.13.3 from this thread?

Just want to ensure correct drivers are loaded before doing anything else, but not sure what other checks I can do, without installing Emby or Video Station.

yes, the extra/extra2 contain a fix for the i915 driver of 6.2.3, when using this you will have /dev/dri

but thats not needed for emby, thats just for synologys own stuff like video station or moments

I have copied the extra/extra2 v0.13.3 into the boot image.
Had to use synology assistant to re-intialize the system, another reboot everything looks good.

admin@NAS1:/$ cd /dev/dri
admin@NAS1:/dev/dri$ ls
card0  renderD128
