  1. For just over a month now, several QNAP NAS have been infected by malware that has not caused any damage to my device, at least, but has prevented updates from being installed. With great probability the perpetrators tried to block updates from Malware Removers. However, this attempt was relatively stupid, since one could remove all harmful files and manipulated entries by means of manual installation of the Malware Remover. Now everything works as usual again. My Plex Media Server is now also accessible from the outside again.
  2. Yeah, and that's what I love it for. From Netflix I watch, when it comes up, just two or three series. The seasons are seen through relatively quickly, and then you wait almost a year for the next episodes. So what should I pay almost 10 EUR a month for if I can't find anything for myself there for half a year? I then preferred to invest this investment in a Plex Pro Lifetime Pass and at the right time also saved on its price. As long as there are also pages where I can find my series, Plex offers me the safe haven to park them there and watch them whenever I want. Also, with Netflix, I can't invite anyone to watch my TV-recorded shows, movies, and/or series. I also play with the idea of moving a Plex server to a cloud PC later on. Of these there are more and more, so that also in this segment the prices will continue to fall.
  3. You can get even more information about Plex in various groups on Facebook in addition to the Plex forum. The same applies to a NAS drive.
  4. Why are you hoping for this and not just buying one? Android TV boxes are not expensive. I have one of my own which is lying around somewhere in its original packaging. But I don't use it myself, because I don't think too much of KODI, although it's quite good software. But if I were you, I'd actually buy a TV box instead of a stick. Have a look in my shop. There you will find for example a very good one: -Link Removed- Please do not misunderstand: this is no invitation to buy from me in the shop! This is only to show you the model of the device. Good choice! Until two years ago I was also more for the small things like Android TV boxes and Kodi etc.. But at some point I got to know PLEX and was immediately enthusiastic, without knowing that it was also available for NAS devices. Then I got the network/cable receiver with four tuners out of GB from SiliconDust. Since then also my two cable receivers, which I had used up to then, lie only somewhere around and get dusty.
  5. Since I got a HD HomeRun Expand cable/network receiver with 4 tuners as a gift from SiliconDust's SEO Theodor (Ted) Head, I only had PLEX Media Server because of the integrated EPG and TV recording function. These newly created files are also assigned to their destination folder by PLEX and my previous destination.
  6. I was once smart about this free media server program "emby". Also a good tool, as it looks. Nevertheless I noticed immediately that some functions are only usable in the premium version, which are already included in the basic version of Plex. Yesterday, after I opened this post here in the forum, I was invited by Plex to test the Alexa function in German. The English version has been around for quite some time. But we had to wait even longer for the German version. I've already installed the skill, but I haven't tried it yet.
  7. I've already tried out some hardware and software to make my media collection (movies, series, other videos, music, audiobooks and radio plays) more accessible. In the end I found the combination of a NAS drive (QNAP HS-251+) and the PLEX Media Server in premium mode (Lifetime Premium) as my only optimal alternative. What does it look like for you? Do you have a multiple TB-sized media collection, and if so, how did you make it accessible?
  8. I bought myself a Samsung J4 two days ago. I would never get Apple because of the operating system, unless Android is one day just as stupid.
  9. I was just about to write: Windows, but that no longer exists for smart devices. Definitely Android to me.
  10. Linux for Homeserver and Windows for daily work and fun.
  11. Also with me it took some time, until I came from quasi zero to over hundred members with my side. I started when IPS version 4 was currently available for download on webflake and invisionvirus. About a month ago I had about 120 members. The community was mainly concerned with Android, Windows and related devices, as well as helping with problems with these. For me it would have been unthinkable at that time to even try to fake any content or rather members. Not just because I was active in the bilingual area. German and English. Unfortunately I had rented a .eu domain, which expired a few weeks ago and would have had to be renewed. Since I didn't want to spend a three-digit amount for a reactivation of the domain and also noticed that most members only registered once for an order and the purchase of a voucher code for Debriditalia, I lost the ambition to continue the whole thing. Now I have my domain isacologne with .de ending (by the way for the price of 1,- €/month) used years ago again in use. So far with the same content: Android and Windows, as well as a blog with IT news. The problem: today you fall over all those pages which deal with these topics and the offer of help. Since a few days I have outsourced the shop area with the help of another software (shopware), because I specialize more in Dropshipping. A bounce rate of the visitors, which is currently 26 percent, speaks for itself. And this even though I haven't yet connected Google, Amazon, Facebook and Instagram. I will simply wait and see and offer more interesting products whose prices speak for themselves.
  12. I think I was able to help solve his problem yesterday. If someone is looking for an app for self-created codes, he can contact me by private message. The only requirement: IPS Commerce is installed.
  13. Version 4.3.x is definitely better than 4.2.x. Simply because of the improved elastic search. I could not find any errors during and after the upgrade. Before you change the version, please note that all apps and plugins must be deactivated first. There will be several of these with the version. 4.3.x does not work. On the other hand, it is also possible that the front pages are no longer displayed. After the upgrade, you can then test each application by activating it one by one and checking the behavior of the page.
