Media Stack – Jackett, Radarr, Sonarr, Plex, TransmissionVPN.

Going to break down my current media stack, as well as list what these tools are and what they do. As well as how you can use these tools together to have a great media automation setup. I’ll specifically be sharing my docker-compose files so you can easily set this up quickly. You can customize it to your needs afterwards. Or even run each service in it’s own VM. But why would you with docker being a thing? https://github.com/Jackett/Jackett Jackett…

Farewell Synology DS416

Farewell Synology DS416

I can’t recommend Synology enough. I’ve had this little guy running since 2017. With some questionable and not so questionable drives installed. I never had one single issue with it. In fact I really enjoy working with these NAS units. It never outgrew my storage capacity needs.
