    Been having some troubles. I try to expand the partition from 2 GB to about 50 GB but it's not working out well. Tried several proggies, including Gparted but it won't allow me to expand the Cubox-i partition while I have over 57 GB free space on the card. Any idea how to expand ext4 partitions in windows? Running VM ubuntu via Hyper-V but that won't let me mount usb sticks nor cards...

    Having 2 more questions:

    1. Where can I find Sickbeard, Couchpotato and NZBget, can't seem to find them.
    2. Is there a way to backup a system so I don't have to go through all the settings again?

    I tried to upgrade and failed miserably. Now whatever I try results in

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    openmediavault : Depends: php5-pam but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: proftpd-mod-vroot but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: php5-proctitle but it is not going to be installed

    Any way to solve this or maybe anyone willing to make an image, preferably the OMV version 2? Thanks in advance.

    I think I had problems with High quality, high compressed MKV files. I tried different advancedsettings.xml files, disabling hardware acceleration (libstagefright, mediacodec, both or single) increased buffering, connection through wifi, ... There's tons of forum posts on XDA about the issue. Some people don't have a single problem (some series would play absolutely fine here too) and others never really solved the problem and switched boxes.

    Luckily I installed SPMC (including Icon for IconoTV which starts SPMC) and that fixed all my problems which makes me believe that certain settings in Kodi would've fixed my problem too as SPMC is a Kodi-fork. The guy that makes it is an official Kodi programmer.

    There's some really cool features in SPMC that Kodi doesn't have: double tap back button on start screen will minimize SPMC, pushing the back button in video will actually stop the video instead of it playing in the back which annoys me, faster Fast forward and backward, auto 3d-switching, UHD in codec, some other nifty stuff, and the fact that I can watch stutter-free now!!

    I had lots of problems with High Quality files and stutter on Kodi with FireTV connected through Lan-cable. Heard people having better result with wifi but that wasn't a solution for me either. I changed advancedsettings.xml, changed Kodi versions, no solution whatsoever. Finally I installed SPMC which is basically just a Kodi-fork and that's working wonderful! Also, to have the icons in recent, you could surf to the amazon appstore via a PC, 1-click install the app (it will say it's not suited for FireTV but just go ahead and install) sideload the app on the fireTV, go to my account on FireTV, sync amazon content, open the app 1 time from your installed apps and voila, the icon appears in recent!

    I tried ALOT of media players: Popcorn Hour a-400, Minix (several version including latest android X8H-Plus), Ouya, Cubox-I4 (Openelec, Android), Raspberry Pi, Banana Pi, Xbox, Playstation, and probably some more I (most luckily) I forgot.

    They all have 1 thing in common, they all fail in bringing good Netflix- support combined with Kodi. If you use PLEX, there's plenty of options though, but as suggested before, I don't like the subtitle support AT ALL!
    Minix does a fairly good job but Netflix doesn't want to allow 1080p support on pure Android boxes.

    That only leaves Fire TV: not perfect also as no native Kodi support (although very easily sideloaded) which means you won't find the Kodi apps inside the app section on the Fire TV, in my case it needed tinkering with Kodi and finally I settled for SPMC.
    sometimes after a few days of media consumption it seems as if there's a buffer problem in Netflix and Kodiwhich makes the image micro-stutter (a reboot does the trick)
    Because there's no official support for Kodi on the FireTV, Amazon could potentially release an update that blocks Kodi completely (They already released an update which bricked FireTV's of rooted users)

    All those negatives just point to 1 conclusion: Why isn't there a decent out of the box experience that just has a good full HD Netflix app combined with Kodi that just works. You could go for a Windows/Linux box but I don't want to sit on the couch browsing media with a keyboard or flymouse.

    I have had nothing but problems with FreeNAS. It's supposed to be stable and probably it is but as far as I remember every plugin had its own IP-address for some reason, not just a different port. I was building my network with lots of Z-wave devices combined with Sonos and smart T, ... and ran into a lot of IP-problems. OMV is a lot more user-friendly.

    Xpenology basically is DSM software right of the Synology nasses. It's probably the most WAF when it comes to interface. Don't really know if the wife will configure the NAS or not and how stable xpenology is.

    The media concerns are paid by wealthy idiots, to tell bullshit stories to keep people calm so the wealthy idiots can get even wealthier. Can't really blame the journalists for that. They probably went to 5 years of uni, thinking they can write neutral stories after that.

    I also don't think Greece getting out of the EU is a bad thing. The whole reason why this country is bankrupt is because they got in the EU in the first place. Countries with a lot of corruption that get into the EU get even more corrupt after that because the EU is like public healthcare for countries. Politicians make a country cripple, EU provides the care.

    Leading a country should be done in the same way a CEO leads a healthy company. That's not the case in most western countries at all. What's even worse is that politicians that lead the EU are put there because they don't get elected in their own country anymore. I couldn't care less if the EU fails as a whole and with me a lot of other Europeans. The top grossing countries started the EU and since then we just have countries joining that need care making us poorer and poorer....

    Why would you need to "help" other countries if your own country is going to waste?? There's no help whatsoever from any country if there's no financial benefit involved.

    AIDS: Probably some big pharmaceutical company had friends at the top
    Ebola: Same shit.
    No country, especially the USA, will "help" other countries to do the right thing. Politicians are in no way noble people that want to help the good cause!!

    They promise to get votes but also they're just puppets on a string. I also really think there needs to be a change globally about how a country is being run. If you apply for just a normal job you need to have a background, expertise, recommendations, knowledge, good resume, ...
    On the other hand, politicians, they just need a good personality and a speech, that's it, and they decide how a country is being led. Rather awkward situation if you ask me...

    Thank you @votdev for your response. I already solved it by cleaning apt. The problem was probably provoked by DNS settings indeed because I changed DNS yesterday to get Netflix US. Thank you again for your prompt response!! I absolutely love OMV!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Get yourself a "Bitte ein bit" or something. :)


    When I go to update manager and I update packages, I get following error:

    Any idea what could go wrong?
