  1. Thanks again, I understand the optimising will help loads - what do you mean when you say h264 stereo mp4 encased version - is this the optimise options?
  2. Thank you and good question @tikker For me at home it is all direct stream - so I do not have much transcoding to do or very rarely, the occasional sound file my AMP (is old) and transcode sound a little bit when watching bigger 4k media. I use a SHIELD as the Plex Player. The transcoding is more for my family which are remote - and they all have different set-ups. My current system works flawlessly and has done for many years - however with more HD content and 4K content being added, I am preparing to future proof this for them a little more as I do not think my current se
  3. Hello to all, I am thinking to start upgrading my oldish desktop and wanted some advice how to go about it and if needed.

  5. Thanks for the reply, however would avoid hosing it down, currently need it haha Reinstalling win10 clean and also the intel drivers have not fixed my problem thus far - both normally and is safe mode... I am now attempting to role back on intel drivers one by one and see how this pans out as never tried this....
  6. Hello to all, Lets start with laptop: XMG P506 PRO GAMING NOTEBOOK from 2016 Operating System Windows 10 Home 64-bit CPU Intel Core i7 6700HQ @ 2.60GHz RAM 8.00GB Single-Channel Unknown @ 1197MHz (14-14-14-35) Motherboard Notebook P65_P67RGRERA (U3E1) Graphics Generic PnP Monitor (1920x1080@60Hz) Intel HD Graphics 530 (CLEVO/KAPOK Computer) 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M (CLEVO/KAPOK Computer) Storage 953GB Samsung SSD 850 PRO 1TB (SATA (SSD)) I have these drivers installed for Intel: Intel Corporatio
  7. OK thanks - I will leave the QVI list alone then haha
  8. I found this for my MB - and see they test quicker than 1600mhz so if i can maybe i should or not - https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1150/B85-PLUS/B85_Series_Memory_QVL_Report_160427.pdf
  9. Thank you Quick question is there a reason for the 1600mhz speed - is this the max i can get for my setup? when i did part checker for my MB for 80Euros ish says i can get quicker - so just askign if you had a reason to choose 1600mhz speed?
  10. Hello all, I need a bit of advice before buying new RAM. I currently have 2x4gb with the following sticks: Type DDR3 Size 4096 MBytes Manufacturer Crucial Technology Max Bandwidth PC3-12800 (800 MHz) Part Number CT51264BA160B.C16F I am also trying to upgrade at value - with the current situation need to be careful with money and hence the advice. Ideally would like to get 32GB - 2x16gb the fastest my motherboard/BIOS can handle: The BIOS I have at the moment is Brand American Megatrends Inc. Version 360
  11. I was able to find this - and I have just tried it Resilio (not adding link as not sure if i am allowed) Seems to be ideal for me and so easy to set up.... and it is free for my needs and the folder is shared directly, safely with a small program to install.... From research this was called BittorrentSync in the past.
  12. Looking at the addresses I think i am not behind a CGNAT thanks. Will look at both OpenVPN and Wireguard to see which will be easiest for me to understand thanks for recommending - again!!!
  13. Thans to all for all the great advice and different solutions. I decided to forget SMB share - too risky and I remember when i set up remote access to my computer via the default port it was being used soooo much and was able to change thi sport to a different one and since then it gets hit practically never.. I need to investgate VPN access - with OpenVPN or other. I also ready about setting up an SFTP? But again this i need to learn more about and what is more important to me - I think i can set up in time on my side - just my users need to be able to co
  14. Thank you - this may be an option and would need to change my PC password that is for sure if i do this. I am assuming the following right now: - I will only have one folder shared on the system that I have allowed locally - the log in details used is for the whole PC - it is not individual to the specific folder? - I have DYNDNS address - would \\www.dyndns.com\<SHARENAME> work - and this would be added in the "NETWORK" option on your file explorer I guess for the user wnating to connect? - Also, maybe there is a way to add in this shared folder - the name
  15. I am able to portforward no problem. thanks. The rest however to make it happen is why I am here
