One thing that keeps the household happy is I never touch/mess with the stuff that's stable and already in production. While upgrading may be painless, I'd rather not risk it. :p

Lack of sufficient free time. Flash drive is inside the chassis and the placement of the original server makes it somewhat difficult to extract. I actually have a LimeTech AVS-10/4 pre-built server...

That's not how it's marketed (at least not when I built my first server which is actually still running unRAID 4.3). One of the key features in the advert/website is providing some form of parity...

Lol, I'm in a similar situation with the parentals. We'll be sticking with 7MC for as long as possible for TV since the parents already know how to use that and they don't react favorably to change....

Hi Nick,

Yep, I read this before already :) (I'm also a member of the SD forums). Now the only thing I'm still pondering is how much to pledge ($30, $60 or $259). I already have quite a number of...

Those are two of my gripes with WMC DVR. Also, despite having multiple tuners, it's never quite handled back to back recordings properly for me. For example, I recorded the Chicago Fire/Chicago...

I'm curious, where in the EULA does it actually say that Microsoft has to keep providing guide data? Most of the EULAs and TOS I've read are there for protection of the developer rather than the user.

It's not. I remember checking prices at Amazon and taking into account frequent sales on HDHR units, buying hardware separately and going for just the $60 perk saves you a hundred bucks or two.

In fairness to the C847 and C1007U/C1037U, they're based on Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge architecture. As far as I'm aware, they have better IPCPC compared to the Bay Trail. Mind, Bay Trail wins on...

That depends on how you define signal quality. App is available on the Google Play Store but afaik, it only works for HDHomeRun tuners.

If you're super concerned, maybe just limit the time for scheduled tasks (ergo, index generation) to 2-3 hours. I believe by default, scheduled maintenance is from 2am-5am.

No idea if the locations are the same on a NAS but you can use the help article from Plex linked in my earlier post.
