Well I guess I'll give you a hand. If you use these packages then you should have no problems getting everything installed. All you need is the latest version of unMenu. Then just download these .conf files and put them into your /boot/packages folder. After that these packages will be available for install in the Package Manager page in unMenu. Follow the instructions with each package and be sure to setup the configuration variables.
Sabnzbd unMenu package
SickBeard unMenu package
CouchPotato unMenu package

Well I installed 4.7 and let is check the parity(which took twice as long at the beta?) and I am getting the same results.
Now it tells me there is an i/o error and wont let me delete the file(permission issues)
Im suspecting a bad drive but it is new and worked just fine in the windows setup for a few days until i moved it to the unraid server. Unraid scanned it fin e and it shows no error so im a little confused

I've been playing with it in a VM and the packages are really, really out of date.
I have also heard of people that are able to get SAB/SB/CP to all run on the same port with the same user/password but I'm waiting on SAB forums to hear back from them.

Any recommendations for a Motherboard/CPU combo for unRAID that can use 1.5v 1600 DDR3 DRAM?

Can FreeNAS create parity drive and other things which unRAID can do? Is there any free alternative to full version of unRAID?
- fluentdesigns - 2011-10-10 16:54
Bandelguy, Yes FreeNAS can do Raid 5/Raid Z

The issue I have with FreeNAS is that you have to add drives in sets of 3 or more.

2. 2x2T Seagate drives

LAN Chipset = Realtek 8111E = not good for unRAID
working motherboards are listed in my Server guide... stick to them,,,
can I just get a gigabit card for PCI and disable onboard network ? - vl1969 - 2011-10-17 22:19
what looks interesting in this MB is
#1 SATA 6Gb/s 8
#2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 3
PCI Express x1 2
plus I am thinking of running VMServer at a later time and this MB supports 32 GB RAM
