Gonna give zoneminder another go on the NVidia TK1 I've got, since it's got loads of CUDA cores to do the necessary, and I should have enough bandwidth on the network to handle 2 h.264 cameras.
cuda for what? analytics or nvenc/dec?

I'm thinking it might be time to build a new server. I've got an extra 1TB NVMe just sitting here because I've got no space in the server. I dunno if you track this stuff, but think you could keep an eye out for a deal? I need to put a couple NVME drives in it, proc for transcoding, at least 32GB of RAM, etc.

:heart:
I saw a dude the other day doing 20 4k transcodes with a alder lake cpu. You could stop getting files stuck in the 1990s :D

man, its almost impossible to not download Dolby Vision content by accident with the *arrs @fly.

None of it is labeled in filename.

I know you get around this by just downloading only 1080p and no HDR, but thats a lame solution
This suggests some? of it is labeled?

Something like this would future proof me for a while?

even the UHD750 is awesome to be honest if you're trying to save money.

I just went to Ebay and found out that my R9 390 seems to go for $200-300. Its been sitting in a bin for at least a year. Guess I've started a fund for my new server. :lol:

@fly do you use plexHOME to share your plexpass features with those that dont have a plexpass for their user account?

Ive never had a plexpass, but after I did the free trial its kinda nice

Only my mom. Back in the day, you had to pay for the Roku app unless you had a Plex Pass. So I added her as a home user. I'm not really sure what it offers any more. Sadly, there's no way to easily transition her to a normal user account.

I bought the lifetime sub a couple of years ago. They deserve the money, and I'll end up 'ahead' anyway.

Ordered proc, mobo, and 64GB of RAM. Hoping to be able to do transcodes in RAM with all that.
let me know if you have any trouble with the setup to get it transcoding. ITs pretty straightforward

Anyone that has an Alexa, can you ask her to pick a number between 1 and 2. We've probably done this 20+ times and she always picks 1.
