Bit the bullet last night and decided to download the final 810 release and completely re do my system with an existing software RAID array and I just want to say thanks to all the Development team and all the users that have made 810 successful as it worked out of the box so to speak.
Just have to set all my firewall rules up again as all the devices on the network changed there IP addresses which is no issue then set up the VOIP. The whole family are now happy again as our system has been out of action for well over 6 months, the only thing I had to do was set up the auto resume option in the CORE media plug in otherwise so far everything is working iPad, iPhone orbiters, MD directors etc
810 picked up the software RAID and it rebuilt itself overnight and now our 4 year old is using the Gyro remote sitting on his couch watching Thunderbirds. For now I will make my usual image back up then wait for 1004 so I can start on my Zwave and IP camera intergration.
So once again thanks to everybody fantastic work and happy new year
