    Plexinator v1 -

    It was briefly released in the forum version the lighter faster version. They turned it back off when they moved that release over to main so it is coming it was undisclosed that it was activated on the forum release most likely by accident. But it did max a cpu core 100% no hardware for that...

    Plexinator v1 -

    Why run a windows VM for plex? Why not just run a docker with passthrough to the GPU? Also just to note as you said you are not passing 4k content. The newest version of plex has some tone mapping built in for HDR being transcoded so it no longer a huge issue.

    Need advice on Massive New Plex server

    Before you go crazy as you mentioned 4k streams. Remember tone mapping on HW transcode is not supported. So if you stream 4k HDR material it has to be direct stream otherwise the colors are washed out. You might see CPU transcode support as I think FFMPEG added support recently.

    Home NAS Upgrade

    Just curious why not run a CPU that has built-in GPU so you can use hardware decoding with plex? Then you don't have to worry about raw power for Plex.

    Truly quiet Supermicro 826/836/846?

    That is a nice way of doing it. Wish I would have known it fit. I modified the stock fan rack and the back of the case to mount the noctua fans

    Truly quiet Supermicro 826/836/846?

    I made my SC846 as quiet as I could get it. Unless you are sitting next to it you don't really hear it but it took a lot of work and a lot of parts to be found. Things that made a huge difference. Removed stock screaming PSU and replaced with the 920p SQ model this was a huge difference. I...
