    1U face/bezel broken clips

    I acquired another 1U with a bad power supply. It runs now but the remaining problem is that all of the rataining clips are broken on the bezel so it won't stay on.

    Tip when upgrading Kaleidescape Conductor

    It looks like there were some small changes to Conductor in the release of kOS 8.6.0-21023. When I started it up today, it said the version on my PC was outdated and needed to be updated. No biggie, just click the link on the web ui and and install. There was however a minor issue. At first when...

    Hot spare clarification

    I had some weirdness with my new 3U that I am not sure about. Somehow everything I thought I knew might be wrong! The server came with 11 x 1tb drives. One drive was flashing indicating that is was a hot spare. The server page indicates the capacity was 8948 GB. I have read here somewhere that...

    I am trying to fit this power supply inside the 1U: https://www.fspgroupusa.com/ecommerce/retail-products/flexguru-250w.html It is closest thing to a drop in power supply for the 1U that I have found but will require a little bit of modification. Mainly and critically the power input has to...

    Premiere no longer shown on K's website

    I just noticed that there is no longer any mention of the Premiere product line or Co-Star on the product pages of K's website. :( I guess one could infer this is another signal about the end of that product line.

    Reviews missing on some popular albums

    Let me start by saying that the album database that k uses is pretty impressive in that in recognizes most of what I throw at it. Out of almost 500 albums loaded, only 36 were unrecognized or wrongly recognized and thus required keying in all the information. And then there is the occasional...

    Too late to redeem UV codes?

    So I decided to dig out all the little pieces of paper with UV codes from my BR cases. I figured that I should try to get them in my k store account if possible. So I created a new UV account through the k store and then... How do you actually redeem these things into UV? The paper on most of...

    Add RAM?

    I'll try and tread lightly on this... Would adding RAM on a 1u server increase performance any? I have found a few old for sale threads that mentioned doubling the RAM by adding the memory module from a dead 1u to the second slot. It was stated that this would speed up response times accessing...

    PROBLEM DISC: La La Land (DVD)

    I had imported the Blu-ray version of this title but it did not have the 'Play Movie' option, only 'Play Disc'. I moved the BD import to the trash and then decided to try the DVD that was included along with the Blu-ray. After identifying the disc, the vault says the disc must be ejected and...

    I just imported about a dozen Blu-rays and 3 of them do not have the ability to play the main movie from the menu (only disc mode). The titles are La La Land, A League of their Own (25th anniversary), and Dr Strangelove (Australian import). The first two have the cover art, synopsis, and cast...

    Change collection and/or minimum rating of Covers view

    Is there anyway to change the 'Covers' view to a favorites collection instead of all movies? If not, it would be nice to do an inverse rating filter for the Covers view. Parental controls allow you to only show 'PG and below' or 'G and below'. It would be nice to do 'PG-13 and above' to filter...
