  1. G'day all, have recently set up a Pi-Hole and Unifi Network server on my raspberry pi to control my two acces points, however one of my acces points is a AP AC v2 and is in ubuiquitys words has "reached its end of use" period and isnt supported by the current controler version. im not much of a coder and after spending a hour in the setting on the browser theres no way to roll back to a previos version, does anyone know of a way i can ssh into the pi and tell it to update to a older version and if not does anyone know of a way to make it install the older version oposed to the current version
  2. so now i think i found my answer. its within the budget and im thinking of trying out just one to see how it fairs and see what the latancy is like. im hoeing with this i can connect several gpus to several rooms and use it so the seperate rooms have a physical display and keyboard and mouse. for programs that wont suffere from latency such as my family photo or video editing i think it should be ok however im not sure what it would be like for gaming. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/120M-HDMI-KVM-Extender-USB-IR-Over-IP-LAN-Network-Switch-Extends-HDMI-10-2Gbps/303086659702?hash=item46915f6876&
  3. https://www.4cabling.com.au/hdmi-usb-extender-over-cat5e-cat6.html this is one of the only devices i have found that can do what i want to try to attempt however im not liking the price tag.
  4. im wondering if i put a thunderbolt card in the server if i can somehow pass through the data to the cat 6 lines i have already run around the house. i have a minimum of 2 lines in all rooms, most rooms having 3 on average. im just trying to find out if i can go from thunderbolt to a dedicated cat6 line then go to the room and have a doc that comes from the cat6line that will have display out and usb to talk to the server. but doing all this i think ill be getting some decent delay time.
  5. I dare say this has already been asked on the forum and I do apologize for re asking it if it already has. But in the off chance it hasn't how's this for a overly complex and most likely not financially viable idea. 1 server that does all your PC's in your house. And I'm not talking in the same room or remoting into the machine. I'm talking is there a way to pass optical and say 2 USB data transmions through a dedicated lam cable to another room where it would have a hub that reverts it back to HDMI and USB? I'm assuming you would saturate cat6 trying to do so wouldn't you and wouldn't that la
  6. Now that would be interesting to see if PLEX media server could max out all those cores. My main reason for doing this was because my media server keeps bogging down because of users. If you don't mind me asking, did you run any cinabench scores on the rig. Interested to see how they fair up to today's market. Also you have to send a pic of a rig like that.
  7. I would love to get my hands on some of the newer AMD stuff, but as you said the price of ram is really what's putting me off. I used to think my old AM3+ 8 core core was good.
  8. CPU's with more than 4 cores is becoming more readily available to the main stream user, and allowing for some interesting prospects. however at the moment the price of a i9 Intel CPU is still in the regions only allowing for enthusiasts. however it isn't an old idea of having a CPU packing more than 4 cores, server grade hardware has been doing this almost from day one. The real question is, how does old server tech hold up to today's (2018) standards. for this little budget experiment i have decided to test 5 aspects of the build 1) The performance difference between old and new hardware
