[Guide] Remote Gaming on Unraid

Assuming this was a reply for my question.
I have not implemented the experimental settings as I followed a SpaceInvader One guide to create my Win10 VM from my NVMe. So my setup and usecase is a bit different but wondering if your approach will get more out of my VM.

Having Hyper-V turned on from the start and my GPUs working even without extracted bios I was wondering if there is a difference in turning Huyper-V on through the XML addition you did and my already working Hyper-V setting in the template!


It wasn’t.

Yes, enabled Hyper-V. Improved a bit. Didn’t overclock gpu since I think LOL has pretty low requirements. When playing on the NAS itself, Very high settings, at 1080p works without problems.

What is your client system?

I’m using Unraid 6.8.3, Xeon E5-1650 v3, 32 GB, GTX-1080, 8 GB. VM running on SSD (SSD not passed through). VM running Windows 10, 12 GB assigned to it.

No, your client - not your host.

Intel NUC i3, 5th gen, Intel® NUC Kit NUC5i3RYH Product Specifications, currently, only on 4 GB.

What does the parsec application say when you click on the button?

It should give you stats.

oh, ok, I’ll test it out later. You mean the Parsec logo on screen? While gaming? On the client?

Yep! That should show you those stats.

This without actually playing.

Ok, have you tried H.265 (HEVC)?

I’ve left it to preferred I believe, but my device doesn’t support h.265

Hey community, when I get to this point. My Windows 10 VM won’t boot where it shows up on the LAN and I can’t RDP into the VM. Do you have any suggestions? The VM boots consistently without the GPU attached. It seems like once you load the GPU drivers and reboot, something stops it from booting. I followed the guide to the letter. My kids are bored and looking forward to a gaming rig.

Hey JDM_WAAAT, Awesome guide.

hoping someone can help. Ive followed it up until I edited the syslinux.cfg and rebooted the server and it would throw this error while Unraid was loading.

I have attatched a screenshot of my IOMMU Groups as well as Flash Config.

If anyone has any idea of where to go from here or what could be causing the issue, any feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Not trying to resurrect this old post, but I have been using the True Bridge mode using netgraph. This completely bypasses the ATT router and pfsense is connected directly to the ONT. Everything is here: GitHub - MonkWho/pfatt: Enable true bridge mode for AT&T U-Verse and pfSense (this is a fork of an original repository https://github.com/aus/pfatt. Since it is not available anymore, I'll do my best to maintain a copy for people that still need a bypass) and there are additional steps if you have uverst tv.


To set the scene, im completely knew to servers as a whole. Apologies in advance for my ignorance.

I have ready the OTIS post and this…

My goals:

  • Small server case
  • For plex use (4/7 simultaneous transcoding)
  • Parsec gaming (No need for ultra high settings)
  • Budget: £500/£700
  • Want everything in one case
  • I want ideas on what hardware to get

My current set up:

  • WD external nas
  • 2011 Mac mini as the plex server

I like the sound of this, even though i don’t know if it can game too:
|Motherboard|ASUS Prime Z390-A|1|$129.00 |
|CPU|Core i7-9700|1|$320.00 |
|RAM|OLOy 2x16GB|1|$120.59 |
|SSD|Sabrent Rocket Q 1TB|1|$119.98 |

hey i use moonlight and can´t see a mouse cursor… on onraid there is not a mouse on usb… is a server… how i could it resolve on win 10?

First post here at serverbuilds…pretty cool looking place. I was googling trying to figure out how to remote into my W10vm from a ShieldTV to play games and standard productivity on the TV. I saw on the original post it mentioned the Shield TV as a client but I couldn’t find any specifics. My pass through GPU is a AMD card so I cant use the GForce stuff, nor the Moonlight.

Has anyone with a Shield tried something like Splashtop on Shield to log into W10VM and does it work well for gaming and controller use?

I’m not sure what all options there are…doesnt seem like very many at all.

Thanks! Cant wait to check this place out!!!

Hi guys, first post here as well and finally decided to jump into unraid and getting my parts together. I have been doing a bunch of reddit, reading, youtube videos, unraid forum, and LTT forum readings. Also went to chat with some technical experts but could not get consensus:

My ideal parts:

  • Ryzen 3900X or 3900XT
  • Gigabyte Aorus Master X570 - got it
  • 4 x Corsair LPX Vengeance 16GB 3200Mhz memory - got it
  • Nvidia 3080 if an when it is available
  • 2 x WD SN750 black 1TB NVME - got it
  • 4 x Seagate Baraccuda Pro 10TB - got it
  • Fractal Design 7 casing - got it
  • Corsair H1000x or H1200x (out of stock - would 1000w be plenty enough?)
  • The recommended HDMI dummy plug - got it
  • Samsung 32GB bar USB as recommended - got it

Use case:

  • W10 Gaming VM (would I even be able to run FS 2020 inside a VM as an example?) with 3080 GPU passthrough (6-8 cores)
  • Emby Docker with HW transcoding through the Ryzen 3900X CPU - 2 to 3 1080p transcoding from HEVC source. Maybe 1 to 2 4K transcode from HEVC source.
  • Radarr, Sonarr, Jackett, Transmission dockers.
  • Rsync with remote NAS to do offsite backup on some data
  • PieHole (never tried it yet)
  • VPN Server
  • Automated photobackup from IOS and Android devices

I stated the details above as my questions below could not get any clear answers:

  1. Would a Ryzen 3900X Unraid build (such as this guide has detailed), produce a reasonably stable system? Or would swapping over to an Intel 10900K produce longer uptime? I have heard INtel 10900K is easy to setup but also heard many successful Ryzen builds.

  2. An Intel 10900k will allow me to use QuickSync for Emby/Plex encoding but I was recommended to get a dedicated GPU for transcoding (GTX 1660 or higher). Would Ryzen build with dual GPU relatively easy to setup? I have seen LinustechTips recent Youtube video on his couple’s gaming PC and he could not get a dual GPU Ryzen system to work - which is worrisome - https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1245279-we-made-the-perfect-couples-pc/

  3. Any chance (hopefully from JDM_WAAAT) on a Ryzen DUal GPU guide? Or someone point me to the right direction to start reading more?

Thank you for any feedback.
