    Gigabyte P106 6G Encoding Lock?

    Hmmm, looks like he has a patch for Windows but it's experimental: https://github.com/keylase/nvidia-patch/tree/master/win Not sure if it's worth the risk.

    Gigabyte P106 6G Encoding Lock?

    That's exactly my point, I won't be using this card to mine with or to play PC games, I will be using it to encode video streams on my Plex media server. This card has 1,280 cuda cores for $75 which is an extremely good price/performance comparison. Just wondering with it being a mining card is the number of video encoding streams limited to 2.

    Gigabyte P106 6G Encoding Lock?

    Hey guys, I have a weird one here. So I was watching the new LinusTechTips video on the super cheap Gigabyte P106 6G mining card. Very impressive what they accomplished but I have another question. I have a Plex media server at home and I am currently looking to upgrade my transcoding performance. I know alot of you guys wouldn't know much about Plex and transcoding, but basically all GTX cards are locked to a maximum of 2 encoding streams so working professionals cannot go out and buy a GTX1060 over a Quadro K4000 (bull***t I know). If this card is based off a 1060, is there still a limited number of encoding streams or is it unlimited like a Quadro because it's a mining card? It would literally be the most perfect GPU for my application cause it's cheap and I don't need any display ports, and it means I wont have to spends $$$$ to go down the path of CPU upgrades. Totally understandable if you can't answer my question

    paid for 50mbps, speedtest says 30mbps

    This is always the case here with most ISP's in Ireland also. My parents are paying for a 80mb/s DSL line but only get a maximum of 40ish mb/s at 6pm in the evening. They only hit their maximum line speeds early in the day or the middle of the night when everyone is alseep!

    pfBlockerNG tips

    Hey guys, anyone familiar with the pfSense package pfBlockerNG? Installed it on the firewall at home and was looking for any good tutorials I can read online for intermediate users? Looking to whitelist sites, and from what I can tell, it's not really blocking adverts on most websites. Thanks!

    Discussing BitTorrent

    Hey guys, looks like I somehow fixed this issue by simply uninstalling the application and dependent libraries and reinstalling them! It's still the same custom version qbittorrent-nox (nox stands for No X Support, so it's build for a headless server with a WebUI only). I hate when something is resolved and you don't know how it's fixed, but looks like this is the case! Thanks for all your suggestions and replies

    Discussing BitTorrent

    Had a quick look into both clients and unfortunately I am unable to use rTorrent for reasons I cannot discuss on the thread. But I did notice I had installed a custom version of qBottorrent called qbittorrent-nox which is a server side only client (WebUI only), so I'm gonna reinstall the standard version, and if that doesn't work I'll go with Deluge

    Discussing BitTorrent

    I'm using qBittorrent. I've always loved it as it works flawlessly on Windows, but might have to rethink it now. I swore not to go back to uTorrent.

    Discussing BitTorrent

    Thanks for your reply! I can confirm that throughput is working fine through the VPN as seen from a speedtest I ran below. root@ubuntu:/home/# curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py | python - Retrieving speedtest.net configuration... Testing from M247 Europe SRL (XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX)... Retrieving speedtest.net server list... Selecting best server based on ping... Hosted by Vispa (Manchester) [6.08 km]: 84.606 ms Testing download speed................................................................................ Download: 182.64 Mbit/s Testing upload speed................................................................................................ Upload: 22.24 Mbit/s Also, when I disable the VPN completely, the torrent still fails to download, so I think it's defiantly the linux bittorrent client. Dam . . . Back to the drawing board

    Discussing BitTorrent

    So I have a torrent client running in a Ubuntu server at the moment which is failing to download over a OpenVPN connection. But this isn't your typical "how to fix torrent speeds" question. I have tested the exact same client and torrent file on a Windows 10 machine with the same uPnP settings enabled, passing through the same OpenVPN tunnel and the same ports opened on the OS firewall (using the UFW firewall on the linux server), and the download works perfectly. Realistically, the only difference is the OS. The symptoms are the download would climb in speed for about 5-10 seconds before falling back down to 0kb/s, even though it would be connected to plenty of seeders. So it almost seems like it's being throttled, but why is Linux affected and not Windows? Just looking for any ideas that come to mind or anything else I could try. FYI - The OpenVPN tunnel is established on a pfSense firewall and done via LAN traffic redirect, I have no OVPN clients running on the hosts.

    Discussing BitTorrent

  13. Hi guys, just wondering if it was ok to discuss issues regarding bittorrent? If it is ok to talk about them, where would I open a topic? I'm having an issue at the moment that DOES NOT involve downloading illegal content. Thanks!

    T3500 wont boot

    I own 2 T3500's myself and I've never needed a specialized copy of Windows. I installed both a standard copy of Windows 7 and PFSense onto these machines with no problem. Try the USB ports on the back of the machine because I think I had a similar issue. The flashing underscore suggest either it is attempting to boot into one of the HDD's where the bootloader is corrupt, of the boot USB is not configured correctly. The fact that you haven't gotten a Dell error for "no bootable devices found" suggest that it is booting the HDD first.

    Looking to set up old PC to home server

    I would agree with @Aprilfooldude I used to run FreeNAS and it's super simple to set up and best of all it's free. I switched to Windows Server 2016 because of compatibility with Sonarr and Radarr, and general stability when trans coding with Plex (used to crash every now and then on FreeBSD). But if your just starting off, FreeNAS is a great option.
