    SSD stick

    While I'm not overly involved in that, All usb Sticks are SSD... So I think you may just be looking at a gimick to get sales, it may have a faster controller etc. but it's still just a USB stick.

    [H]ard Forum Storage Showoff Thread {2017}

    Nice, I looked at the 10TB but they were just to pricey so I think my max build will be using 6, maybe 8 TB drives. got a case which will hold 15 easily so the goal is over 100TB usable :)

    Hardware Vs. Software for larger servers?

    After some more digging I think this may be best option https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B004JPUZWU/sr=1-1/qid=1325791539/ref=olp_product_details?_encoding=UTF8&me=&qid=1325791539&sr=1-1 5x8TB in Raid 5 would give a pretty good single

    Hardware Vs. Software for larger servers?

    Been trying to catch up on all this. And it would seem port multipliers are getting bigger Are these supported by most motherboards now or is a card needed? As it seems win10 etc. all support raid and expansion options now, and pretty easily. I'm trying to decide which way to best go to reach...

    Latest guide or site for Large Cap storage?

    I hate being the guy to ask a question that's been asked 100 times. But I'm looking to get a 24 bay norco, and want to set it up with a raid and expansion ability. 4TB HDDs, with expansion. Googling gets results from 2012. I know at one time a member on here had guides for this...

    Homemade UPS?

    Battery safety would be a concern yes, out door install preferred, but the main issue is finding a controller.

    I guess that would work for spanning the gap. I'll be honest I just figured someone would have something for this out already haha

    Homemade UPS?

    Hmm, yeah I'm thinking of that, the grid tie solar buckup packs, I'm just unsure if they are instant support. Most grid tie systems switch over, so there would be down time. killing everything.

    Homemade UPS?

    I'm looking for a device, which I can put in my home, and wire to Deep cycle batteries. Tie to the house power. And run a power bar for my server/internet pc, etc. Something that can be expanded for more time. All google seems to find me is half assed basterdized versions.

    Watching TV on XBMC

    I've got poor net access, I can use netflix, but it seems most of these add-ons are unable to dumb themselves down enough for me. 1channel worked, along with others. But wishing I had better internet for sure! If you have a huge database, pseudotv is great!

    Wanting to build HTPC PVR Server for XBMC setups

    Watching TV on XBMC

    Funny he keeps saying it over and over, he wants to use the live streaming add-ons which rely on torrent networks and other on demand services. I want the same thing. But add-ons are not working properly sadly. Also looking for advice on the latest and greatest addons.

    Advice on building Server, 3x mv8 cards?

    I already have one of the mv8 cards. Sadly it wont work with the current PC. I'm looking to build a server with expansion room. Probably run a freenas or something along those lines. Right now I'm looking for a budget motherboard/cpu and ram combo I can stick in a standard case I have. And...

    Need to Network a 300'x350' outdoor area?

    I was thinking the same thing. using the bottom left corner as my main switch, and running out to the other's. I'm thinking the switch listed on the last page is my best choice, has gig uplink.

    Need to Network a 300'x350' outdoor area?

    Potentially. But I have to weigh the costs of another switch and shorter runs. vice running say a thousand or more extra feet of cat6, plus the labour of running more cable Over having 4 hubs and spinning off that. Plus I could do them one at a time for cost wise.

    Need to Network a 300'x350' outdoor area?

    Thinking of using something like this. since I will be running LED flood lamps, I won't have any high draw's. So a few of these may work nicely :) http://www.controlanything.com/Relay/Relay/ethernet_relay_controllers Edit: Here's the rough field layout, the top is 250+ feet, with no end wall...

    Need to Network a 300'x350' outdoor area?

    Not sure what you'd like me to draw? the over all field is 300x350' the entire area will be playable with an admin area in the bottom left corner, which woul dbe where my pc/control/server would be. The idea of having 4 switches evenly throughout the field seems the best solution. Now to find...

    Need to Network a 300'x350' outdoor area?

    the 4 in a square would be ideal. after thinking of it. I believe that patter would be best! I'd have less camera's around the outside anyway. How would the 4 be connected? better to have 4 nics on the pc and run all in? Or one main switch feeding the 3 others than back into the server? Would I...

    Need to Network a 300'x350' outdoor area?

    Thank you for the link. Cable lengthis an issue, I was wondering if multiple 8 or 12 port switches spread evenly would be a better option. As a single central switch would result in a CRAP load of wires being run all over the place. Seeing as the server would be in one of the corners. I could...

    Need to Network a 300'x350' outdoor area?

    no no won't need that many. I'm expecting 16 max camera's over time. I'll probably need too setup two switch locations evenly space over the field.

    Day is okay. I plan to have flood lights near the cameras on motion sensors for added effect. may not be a great picture.. but meh. I will be running a few night vision camera's but those are more for actual night security rather than in play watching. That camera's nearly the same price as the...

    Need to Network a 300'x350' outdoor area?

    Thanks. Can anyone confirm the distance I can make cat6 travel outdoors? I'm hearing 150' others are saying 600'.... if it's 600' for real, than It saves me a crap load. I can run everything off one central location. Thank you

    Looking for basic DLNA server?

    The format doesnt really matter. the samsung tv plays it all, so no transcoding should be needed. Maybe? but that makes no sense why the server needs to be able to transcode? will look into tvmobil. Thx!
