Re: Plex Server on Zero W

Have you thought about how viable this solution is? The Pi Zero W only has 512 mb of ram so not sure how well it will do being a plex server. Unless you are doing this just for fun, i would suggest using a more powerful Pi.

Look further back in this thread. I'm pretty sure there were others trying to get Forge working, but I don't recall the outcome.
I had forge working. I had to try different versions though as it was hard to get mods paired with it.

Try it yourself and then report back if it works, probably Konsta's Android would be the one to try:

But Konsta's is no longer managed... Emteria.OS is pretty much the only good one that is managed.

Re: SSH PROBLEM!(Connection closed by 192.168.2.6 port 22)

1. Enable ssh on your pi in sudo raspi-config
2. Find your Raspberry Pi ip address by right clicking the wifi symbol or looking on your routers website.
3. ssh pi@(yourip)

Spotify is can be used with Exagears software. It costs though and their support is extremely horrible. This is just a suggestion but personally I would definitely not recommend them.

Re: Is it reliable to backup Raspi from remote?

You probably would either have to code, or use software, or manually VNC into the Pi and backup to a SMB share.

It sounds like a power issue or software issue. If you have another keyboard or mouse in the house, try them out as well.

I have used to to backup a USB SSD to a smaller micro SD card (and vice-versa).
Thanks -

... from larger to smaller? Does it automatically shrink the partition if there's unused space or something?
Yes It does. That makes it much better than so many other tools out there.

Very true. My WordPress site run on apache receives people trying to probe for vulnerable PHP. If running a WordPress site, get a security plugin.

Basic questions on CPUs In Pi

Hi everyone! I wanted to know how much more cost would be added to a CPU if the Pi is (leaving 48nm node?) going to a more powerful ARM CPU? I am guessing the smaller node your CPU is, the higher the cost because that makes sense. Also, I would like to know how much more power would be required by a...
