After months of lots negative feedback from Sarah about Plex, Jim finally takes the recommendation of Josh and Richard at Entertainment 2.0 and tries out Channels.

Plex NVR

* Plex is using a new provider for guide data. This requires users to delete and recreate their NVR but will fix a lot of issues users have been facing

Home Assistant

* If you are not able to get all your zigbee devices to connect due to range I would recommend these zigbee plugs which act as a repeater. https://amzn.to/3qjdQOA

UnRaid

* Great article on updates to the Ultimate Unraid Dashboard that you can get running with Grafana, Telegraf, and InfluxDB Unraid | Ultimate Unraid Dashboard Version 1.5 is Now Available
* Jim – I swapped out all the drives on my Unraid box this week.
