  3. When I did maintenance on my Plex server (added more HDDs nothing major) I lost the database on Tautulli but I use plexwatch and that was perfectly fine all the time so I try to import my plexwatch database back into Tautulli but I keep getting an error is there something I'm doing wrong. or was this not compatible from the get-go. I tried putting in the "Database Location" entry slot the following, C:\plexWatch\plexwatch C:\plexWatch and with this string "C:\plexWatch\plexwatch.log" I got this Your help is very much appreciated. Please and Thank You.

  5. Yes I have checked all ribbon cables
  6. Hi, my friends were moving and they have this fairly recent LG TV but I no longer works so they were just going to throw it away. But if power is off at the picture is there and it's a 4K LG TV so I was wondering if I could fix. When I power it on all I get is static and the left half the of the screen is a color usually red yellow green or purple but the entire screen has static. I was wondering if it's one of the boards inside if so how would I diagnose it when I plug something in via USB I get power but it's not displaying anything the remotes not bringing up menus. The only thing the remote does is it can raise lower the volume and turn on and off the TV. Could it be fixed or is it tract?
  7. Recently I have been ripping my DVD collection via MakeMKV to put on my Plex server but when I went to watch one of my movies back it was in a 2 x 3 aspect ratio but when I stuck the DVD in my Blu-ray drive it gave me a 16 x 9 aspect ratio. I was wondering how I would convert it to 16 x 9, if Plex can convert it for I was playing back at original quality because I have to because my server is not powerful enough yet to encode on the fly. Is there a way to adjust the file because when I view the raw file on my computer that I riped on VLC it’s 2 x 3 aspect ratio along with viewing it directly off the disk on my pc.
  8. Do 100% on the PC and adjust the sound bar for you are putting a lot of unnecessary wattage through the speaker.
  9. thank you @kirbo14 i was looking at FreeNAS I just didn't know if it had scheduled backups I thought it was just a file storage array.
  10. I just pot my plex server up and runing (its an old dell precision 370 with a pentium 4 cpu) and its good for 480p dvd rips but I want to put 1080p blue rays on and it will not keep up with it. i was thinking to use ryzen but was also thinking old server equipment. But i don't want this to be just a server for media, is there a way I can also have it be a nas/server to do scheduled backups from my PC and laptop and I also want to be able to access my files at school if i need to. Can this be done or would a synology nas be better?
  11. it seems good, since it is a digital connection it either works of it doesn't.
  12. HDMI and Optical are both Digital so length doesn't effect quality like older analog cables and there should be no delay for it its a digital signal going at the speed of electricity. But if it is only for sound I would go Optical (that is what I have for my setup).
  13. I do some outdoor photography and i love my Sony a6000, It may not be waterproof but my sister has the same camera because she liked mine so much and went to the snow with it and it has held up very nicely. It is also very simier to the Nikon you have so if you like that the Sony is almost identical in a smaller footprint. the pentax is also a good choise but has a smaller senser sise but is you go that rought try before you buy because it is a smaller company you might not get the best support.Hope this helps. http://cameradecision.com/compare/Sony-Alpha-a6000-vs-Nikon-D5500 http://cameradecision.com/compare/Sony-Alpha-a6000-vs-Pentax-K-S2
  14. Yes, on inlet's ARK website you can run 3 monitors and mini DP should be able to have the bandwidth for 2 lower resolution monitors (1080p ish)
