I registered here because of recent answers in this topic. I bought my FX160 more than year ago. It has only debian, samba, nfs and transmission. LibreELEC on Raspberry Pi 2 connected to TV is my player for movies i have on Dell. So far i wasnt greedy, this setup was enough, h.264 work great both HD and FHD, h.265 works with HD after RPi OC but cant handle those with more bitrate. But your responses woke my appetite for more. Especially i would love to dump all those Dropbox/GoogleDrive/Mega accounts with limited space and traffic and switch to ownCloud/syncthing + DynDNS.
But anyway, i wanted to ask few questions first:
1. I know that 3GB i recognisable from 4GB of ram. But most of you have 2x2GB sticks. Has anyone tried to put one or two 4GB sticks anyway and see what happens?Ok, i found its because chipset SiS 671 itself so either @ngevan2k has some special version with different chipset and settings or his 8GB just doesnt work as he claimed.
2. @aletib mentioned that he used crystalHD but it wasnt easy to setup. Has anyone else tried this. What obstacles you have to overcome to set it up with PLEX for example?
3. I would like to set LVM RAID1 (mirror) with two 2,5" drives - ive seen some of you struggled to place 2,5" drive instead of flash drive. What is the best way to mount two 2,5drives? Or is it worth to experiment with RAID1 on two different drives?
4. What R/W speeds do you get over LAN with SSD drives?
Thanks in advance
Sorry for the late answer the difficult part was only playing aroung with linux kernel/modules and software to use it. Under windows it is very easy: you just fit the card, install the driver and you're good to go. But still no info on the 8GB... cache for a NAS would be useful.
And some good news I just discovered: the internal sata controller supports Port Multiplier: I connected a SATA-eSATA cable to the SATA connector usually used for the second drive (the one on the fan-bracket) on one side and to a 4xSATA IcyBox case and clonezilla saw all 4 drives (the external box is a pass-through: no RAID support, no nothing). Windows drivers may not support this feature (it's often the case on Intel chipsets for example).
