    I recently shucked a WD Elements drive and used that in my NAS, as it was cheaper than a Seagate. I’ve got the data backed up so if it goes, it goes. I’ll be saving for the Ironwolf next time round!

    I don’t think using a VPN would change that, as the ISP would still be able to detect the amount of traffic going through the network connection.

  • It’ll clear cookies when you close the tab, so next time you open, you’ll have to sign in. It also stops saving any history as well.

    Instructions for the Chrome (Android, PC and iOS) are here.

  • This seems to be a running theme at the minute.

    Why not just access the web using Incognito mode? Will log you out when out when you close the session. No need to worry about each websites ability to logout. :good:

    I hope the Philips Hue bulbs I bought get that amount of use from them with what I paid for them!

    Just checked now.

    There’s no option to sign out (just delete account) and you can’t set a passcode or similar. Not sure if it’s different on iOS.

    Afternoon messing with the network causing us to lose internet for an extended period ಠ_ಠ

    Was setting up a second gateway (my Huawei router, with Three SIM) to act as the gateway for the NAS, and then get the Pi Hole sorted.

    Somewhere along the lines, something went tits up and the ADSL router was unreachable. Not sure how or why, but the IP add…[Read more]

    I’ve not needed it to date – no need for transcoding, as the nVidia Shield does that for me when it plays (using Kodi) but looks like Plex to use with Sonos, as it wont use the Synlogy DLNA server ಠ_ಠ

  • Drezha replied to the topic Terramaster in the forum PC Talk 4 weeks ago

    I dug out this article which says so. Looks like it doesn’t work with Synology DLNA server either. So it looks like Plex may finally make it on my NAS!

  • Drezha replied to the topic Terramaster in the forum PC Talk 4 weeks ago

    I’m still getting my head around it – I’m yet to try another in anger as I’m not sure I’ve got much need for anything else that Synology doesn’t already provide!

    There’s a lot of piracy related ones (Sickbeard, Sonarr etc) but these can also be downloaded from Synocommunity as apps if that’s preferred (Synocommunity also offer a lot of other,…[Read more]

    I don’t have an android to hand, but from memory, you have to click the icon for the account in the top left (usually a a letter or the outlook icon) and and then click the cog in the bottom left to bring up the account list.

    Question is, why would you want to log out?

    I got used to using the GUI on the Pi, as I’d often remote in from the iPad to use apps that didn’t run on the iPad itself. Also saves booting up a PC to do a quick task.

    At the minute, debating if I need to set up a VM – did try Debain server using the netinstall disc last night and that worked a treat, but Pi Hole is working in docker, with a…[Read more]

    I had a look at routers the other day, and there generally seemed to be a far greater range of standalone routers these days, rather than the combined modem/router models that seemed to be a greater range when I bought my Nighthawk a few years ago.

  • Drezha replied to the topic Terramaster in the forum PC Talk 1 month ago

    Pi Hole looks to be up and running within minutes using Docker. Followed the instructions here and was up and running very quickly. I assume it works, but I haven’t switched my DNS and DHCP servers to it yet, but the web portal is working.

    Spent ages trying to get it working with the virtual machine. Downloaded Raspberry Pi OS, as I quite like it…[Read more]

    Curses!

    220+ doesn’t recognise the 4GB DDR I’ve installed. Not sure if it’s related to the fact that the RAM I’ve added is DDR4 2400MHz – a bit of digging suggests it’s 2600MHz installed by default, so I’ve grabbed myself a Crucial stick online to try (it’s £16). Don’t want to pay the £95 for the Synology RAM really! :wacko:

    First drive is b…[Read more]

    Thinking about it, it cant be just the Resilio issue, as I use a mapped drive for my shared folder, and it doesn’t pick up TV or films that are added. Maybe I’ve turned out daily indexing – I’ll have to check, but as the 116 is now on eBay, I’ll just make sure the 220+ has it setup!

    I think it was mainly as not taking the screenshots in PNG meant that it ended up breaking my photo filing automation, as I would have software running to check for JPG and PNG uploads and then move them to different folders – one in to my photos folder and the other in to screenshots, as that was often the only reason I had PNG files on my phone!

  • Drezha replied to the topic Terramaster in the forum PC Talk 1 month, 1 week ago

    Haven’t had a chance to set it up yet – we hired a carpet cleaner for the weekend and still waiting for the office to dry now. Last one I set up was the DS418 for my old workplace for storing our modelling data on. That was setup using EXT4 and SHR from memory, though why I went for EXT4, I can’t remember but did use SHR, so that drives could be…[Read more]

  • I am impressed with the offsite backup feature – I set one up a few years ago for my wife’s family after they were hit with ransomware. Set up Synology Sync (whatever the one prior to Drive was called) to sync to the NAS and then set the NAS to use mine as an offisite backup. Now, I just have hyper backup send to my 300GB of Synolgoy C2.

    Do they still take JPG screenshots? That was something I never could get over on the 5 that I had.

    They are good phones, and almost stock. Did like the one I had for a while – seem to remember selling it when I got the Pixel 3a, as camera on that was better.

    Still rocking the iPhone as the main phone though :whistle:
