Final assembly of my OdroidXU4 file/media server
Earlier on in the month I mostly assembled my new file/media server but didn't get to finish it because of some panels being incorrectly cut for me. Now I was able to get new panels laser cut and finally assembled the whole unit. It looks amazing...

Display OdroidXU4 system status on Odroid-Show2
Since the DietPi-CloudShell doesn't work properly on the Odroid-Show2, I decided to make my own script to display the system status on the Odroid-Show2. I reused some of the the code from DietPi-CloudShell for this purpose.

Configure DietPi to shut down after power button press on OdroidXU4
I went to the trouble of making an external power button for my Odroid XU4 and then found out that out of the box DietPi completely ignores this button being pressed. Luckily there is a way to make the OS shut down after the power button is pressed.

OdroidXU4 + DietPi + Plex + Deluge + webmin = awesome home media/file server
A few days ago I wrote about when I physically put together my Odroid-XU4 home media server. This article deals with the software side of the setup. This server runs Plex, shares all the media files via Samba (Windows file sharing) and also runs the Deluge torrent client.

Putting together the Odroid-XU4 home media/file server
I've been meaning to write this update for a while. The Odroid-XU4 file server I've been working on to replace my existing file server is finally assembled. I've written previously about how I've added an external power button and also externalised the network port, this update shows the final touches including acrylic panels and the Odroid-Show2 placement.

Externalising the OdroidXU4 network port
I've been slowly modifying a 4-bay HDD USB 3.0 enclosure to fit an Odroid XU4 to use as a file server. This is the latest modification, the network port from the XU4 is taken and extended to be accessible from outside the HDD enclosure.

Adding an external power button to the OdroidXU4
My file server project using an Odroid XU4 is coming along nicely and since it's all going into a HDD enclosure that I already have, the XU4 board will not be accessible and along with it, its power button. This article shows how I've added an external power button to the XU4.

Odroid-XU4 price and boot up times compared between microSD and eMMC
I received my Odroid-XU4 a couple of weeks ago but held off doing anything much with it until I had the eMMC module. Well that module has arrived so I did a quick test to see the difference in boot times between it and a Class-10 microSD card.

Received my Odroid-XU4 from JiffyShop
I've been waiting to get my Odroid-XU4 for some time and finally ordered it from my local distributor, JiffyShop. The package arrived very quickly but I was somewhat disappointed with what was in the box.
