    sound on a linux machine

    Hello, Is there a way to get sound on a virtual linux machine. No sound directly decode by the VMM because i think it's impossible but can be via a remote connection. I know, for example that on a Windows machine, via RDP the sound can be decoded on the remote station. Thank you

    Access data on a vdisk that won't boot

    TL;DR: "How do I mount/open a vdisk for a VM that doesn't boot?" I want to access files directly from inside the vdisk without it running the VM that was on it. I don't care if I have to access it from Synology NAS CLI or if I have to copy the vdisk image to my local machine to do so. More...

    Convert Parallels Windows 10 to VM Windows 10

    Like the title says ... I am on a Intel-based Mac that will likely be replaced by an M1 Mac which means Windows will not run on it yet. I have a DS1621+ so it makes sense to build a VM and port the disk image over to the VM ... my question is HOW? Also, would it be worth getting NVME cache if I...

    VM performance

    Anyone upgraded from a 916+ to a 920+? I installed Windows 10 into a VM on my 916+ with 8 GB RAM and a SSD and it "works", slow but OK, i do NOT need it for real work. The CPU in the 920+ is 2-3 times faster than then one of the 916+. Do you feel/see the speed difference in the VM?
