  1. The purpose of a NAS is that it can handle more than one drive, the files are accessible from anywhere in the network, and many users can access it at any time. If you don't need 24/7 operation, and just occasionally need the files, your solution is perfectly ok. Personally I use my NAS more than file sharing in the local network. It runs backups via Syncthing, a Plex server for 4K streaming to the living room tv, a Nextcloud server for large file sharing to other people, a torrent client of course. Whileit's cool and everything to have a NAS, but you're right, not everyone need to have one.
  2. This definitely has to be addressed in the next wan show. Looking forward to what Linus / Luke / James / *any other host* think about it.
  3. Replying to my own post, because no one seems to be familiar with my question. Fo orotherpeople, if you interested, here is my experience. First of all, Hikvision is working flawlessly with the Hik Connect app. In the site hik-connect.com there's link to nvr's ip with the remote management port, that's not working because it detects the ISP external ip, and the ISP obviously doesn't have a port forwarding set up just for me. But I don't really need that kind of remote management, view back and live is enough for me. So in one word it works out of the box, but for a b plan OpenVPN is always there if needed.
  4. At home i have an Ubuntu server NAS, so that could work, but if possible, i prefer the native Hikvision thing that i mentioned. So still waiting for answers to that. Thanks for your answer, jj9987.
  5. Hi everyone, I want to deploy an NVR at the family weekend house. The ISP uses carrier grand NAT, so my public ip shared with other customers, and my router's ip is in the private ip range (10.somthing.sth.sth). Of course a solution like noip.com or other dynamic dns solutions will not work. But, teamviewer works just fine. My idea is to buy a Hikvision NVR which is remotely managable via the Hik Connect. Is the Hik Connect works just like a ddns and refreshes the external ip of the NVR or is it "makes a tunnel" between the NVR and the remote computer like teamviewer does? Or if it's not like that, do I have any solution, like vpn or something? (Other ISPs are not available at the street, and fix IP is horrible expensive at that ISP) Sorry for my lack of knowledge, if i wrong please correct me. Thanks for the answers.
  6. Back in 2015 era, when I was in highschool we were given the task to edit photos with gimp, at the begging of the year. And I'm like uh, I literally have no experience in it, soo what about Adobe Ps(which i already was very used to). To the next lesson i went with a bootable win10 and a portable version of PS CS6 on it. It worked really well, i also remapped all the school network folders so nobody noticed anything. I did all the tasks and saved everything to the network drive. Everything was fine until the end of the year, when i booted into my portable os and all of a sudden all the network drives was unreachable. Ok, I turn on the computer next to mine, to see what's the changes. And of course my teacher noticed that I'm not working on the given task and asked what am i doing. I told him that on my computer that specific drive haven't been mapped. He tried refrieshing the explorer window, and other useless things. After a minute or so, one of the "console tech guys" said how about a reboot. And woala, it solved it, cause the boot order. And the teacher said, thanks *guy's name*. And i was facepalming so hard in myself that the teacher noticed and asked, if i did something bad that "disconnected the pc from the network". And I didn't want to tell him the truth, so just sit back silently to the computer.
  7. Another one that I came across quite often: When i'm working on a gig / concert / festival, and people see that next to my laptop there's a router. And the first thing they ask, what's the wifi password, and I'm like, first, I use it to connect to other laptops, audio amplifiers, it's not connected to the internet. Second, if i would have mobile internet connection that's shared via wifi, why the hell would i give the password to any person. People assume that wifi = internet
  8. When i help someone non techie, and just want to tell them what was the problem, and what's the solution, and they like: "I don't understand tech." "I don't care just make it work." "Oh, it's loading slowly, nevermind i'm patient." Or just looking at me in the eye, and i already know they will forget it in the next minute or so. Yeah, i get it, you're not a tech person but please, I will explain to you slowly and understably. Just please listen to that 2 sentence that i say, so I can sleep peacefully that i told you it .

  10. Yes i can, but that's still stereo, and not 5.1.
  11. I mean one audio output port. The old Samsung smart tv had analog rca output.
  12. The Tv is a Samsung 50'' MU6122 and the connector is optical.
  13. Hi We just bought a new 4K tv which has a digital audio out port. And our analog Sony receiver has only analog rca inputs. I searched online for digital to analog converters, and there are a ton of cheapo ones, but i don't really trust them. They look cheap, all that i found look the same, just the brand logo what differs. Has anyone got experience with one of these devices? And the one, that i found ok, is it looks ok to you as well? And of course the point is to find a good 5.1, not a stereo one. Thanks guys Here are the ones that I mentioned: Ebay cheapo 1 , Ebay cheapo 2 and almost the same on Amazon Ebay one, that looks ok to me
  14. Ok, it worked, thanks a lot. I just changed in the boot settings sda1 to sdb1.
