Loving Tretflix so far! This project has inspired me to throw together a little ESXi server and it's been a great learning experience. Quick question: If I wanted to increase the size of the 2nd hard disk (1TB) is it simply a matter of adjusting the "Provisioned Size" of the disk under the VM Properties (vSphere Client)? Thanks again for putting all of this together!

I'm not familiar with doing this however a quick search shows that people are doing it. Take a look at this one: http://askubuntu.com/questions/294889/h ... rtual-disk

Let me know how it goes! Glad you're enjoying tretflix thus far!

Hey, thanks for pointing me in the right direction and not just telling me to "Google it stupid!" I hadn't thought ahead far enough to realize I'd have to resize the partition and the file system. Anyway, I Googled it :D and found this: http://codesilence.wordpress.com/2013/0 ... -on-linux/

I increased the size of disk2 to 2TB (max size for MBR disks) and it's worked without a hitch (so far!) The best part is that this can be done on a live system. No need to unmount the file system or boot from a live CD. Here's what I did at the command line after adjusting the Provisioned Size of the disk in the VM Properties:

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~$ sudo fdisk /dev/sdb

The partition table has been altered!

[email protected]:~$ sudo reboot
Then, after rebooting:

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~$ sudo resize2fs /dev/sdb1

[email protected]:~$ sudo reboot
And the results, after another reboot:

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~$ df -h

Excellent, thanks for taking the time to document this for others! One of the things I'm really excited about with v1.2 (still working on it) is the ability to add a cifs/nfs share and redirect/move the downloads to the mounted share. This will allow the VM to stay relatively small and offload the downloads elsewhere in your environment.

I'm really excited about tretflix, definitely will try it out when I upgrade my server to ESXI, currently running solaris bare metal with sab/sickbeard/etc.

I was hoping it might be possible to have each of the services hosted behind an apache/lighttpd revese proxy with SSL+https for security. I like to have these services available outside my home network and not only do you get better security but you get nice urls, example.com/sickbeard and example.com/sabnzbd instead of having to specify ports and forward a whole bunch of ports you can just expose https (443).

I'm reasonably competent with *nix and would be happy to help in any way I can.

Have you thought about putting some of the stuff on github for easier collaboration (if you wanted of course).

Looks like great work!

I'm glad to hear that you're excited about this project. I am very interested in hearing about the security tweaks you mention. Can you put together a quick summary of how this can be integrated into Tretflix? I'm very interested in hearing more.

As for github, I am planning to post the master branch for Tretflix CLI once I go GA w/ Tretflix v1.2. This should allow for some collaboration and allow an easy method for updating the CLI when I've added new features, fixes, etc.

I'm super busy right now so I can't write up a lot but this page on the sabnzbd wiki explains a bit of what I was saying

http://wiki.sabnzbd.org/howto-apache

I'll try to update time permitting.

That's a great start, thank you. I'm right in the middle of finalizing Tretflix v1.2 but this is definitely on my list for v1.3 features. I'm also interested in adding an OpenVPN client, are you familiar with best practices for doing so?

I'm loving the TretFlix Project but I'm having trouble figuring out how to get tretflix and couchpotato within it to see my external USB hard drive that I have mounted.

I'm running the appliance with VirtualBox, I have the x64 Tretflix Standalone version installed. Its not the NAS edition. The base system I'm using is a machine with x64 Ubuntu and 12GB of Ram... I know Ill have to adjust the volume of the internal hard drive, my local SSD drive is a lot small than 1TB ... But I have many USB drives and also a couple servers which together comprise of almost 35TB of media and I'd like to point everything to Tretflix so i can have sickbeard, Plex, couchpotato,etc see all the existing media I have.

I already have everything configured OUTSIDE of tretflix on a different machine, but I want to redo everything incorporating Tretflix.

Any help on how to get TretFlix to see both my local USB devices and also the Devices which are on the same network sharing via SMB.

Thanks!

Has anyone updated TretFlix 1.3 to use SABnzb 8.0 yet? How? Is it too soon?
