Re: Max USB Drives

Understood and I agree. Not pushing the limits. I plan to have no more then (10) HDD's and (2) USB-7port Hubs = 12 connected devices. I should be OK..... theoretically!! :shock: 10 HD, your pushing a lot of things here you can get 14TB Drives , or 10TB or even 4TB - 6x 4TB is plenty for anything .....

Re: Is possible to output video to 4 HDMIs using usb dongles?

no probably not
your best bet is 4x RPi [cheapest ones] and use a networked video source
or 2x pi4

Re: USB problem on Pi 4B

I don't trust generic stuff with my hard disks, although it seems branded stuff can be just as bad. Not sure about NTFS performance on the Pi 4, but when I tried it on the Pi 3 it was pretty awful. You should get better performance with ext4, although you then obviously lose the ability to detach i...
