Sometimes you just plain need to see what in God's name is going on behind the scenes, of your Plex Media Server, whether it's for trying to pinpoint an issue (like in our tutorial: Plex Media Server - Search - Nothing Found - Solution for example), or just outright curiosity. Well, it's easy.
Made some changes to your Plex folders outside of the Plex interface, such as recently added files, movies, music, or whatever, and need to have PMS see them NOW instead of waiting for it's scheduled update check?
Want to make sure your PMS library is nice and cleaned up, running fast, not using up unnecessary bloat on your hard drive, etc.?
I've recently run into a long lasting problem with my Plex Media Server (PMS), where doing any search, be it in the PMS web interface itself, or any of Plex's apps, would always end up with "No matches found." Even if I was looking directly AT matches right on the screen, with my very own eyes (which are still pretty good, I might add, even at my age. ).
Maybe you're fighting with MiraCast like half the internet is, and have come to realize that one requirement is a WiFi network card that supports at minimum NDIS 6.3?
You've come to the right place (but as a regular GeekDropper, you already knew this, right? ... ), it's cake, just:
Way back then it was already beyond useful; in our opinion, it's one of those "absolutely must have" programs, but since then it's gone to a whole new level of awesomeness, and just keeps getting better, since the developer is constantly fixing and improving it.
I was helping out one of our forum poster's who was trying to get his Privoxy running as a Windows service, but ran into trouble, so I figured I'd whip up a quick video tutorial while I was at it.
It's a fairly simple process, and "shouldn't" cause too much trouble. If anyone has any other tips / tricks / additions, please post!
I recently was repairing a few problems with a Toshiba Satellite laptop (L305D-S5938 in this particular case) for someone and was getting nowhere real fast, because it overheated if you just looked at it funny. The second something normal caused the fan to get a little louder, *poof*, off it went; just shut right off in the middle of whatever you were doing. And on top of that, when it wasn't shutting off, it just took foreverrrrr to do anything. Anything.
Very often these days we need to manually choose to run a program as the computer's "Administrator" (or "Admin" for short). What this is for is so that the program is able to perform certain actions that it normally cannot do when not being run as the Administrator. One example (of many) is to perhaps start and / or stop a Windows Service. There are 2 ways do do this, one is a temporary "one time use way", and the other is the permanent way.
The "temporary" way is meant to be used if you only really need to run the program as Admin one time, or just every so often.
