If the thing only draws 5 watts of power, how is it even possible to overheat? I'm definitely interested in these things. I was interested in the Guruplug as well, and I'm VERY glad I waited on that one. After the first batch goes out, and the all clear is sounded (ie, it actually works as advertised, like the Sheeva does), I'll be all over getting one.

Love it! If it had an HDMI out, it'd definitely by MY dream, but it's pretty close. Looks like they've learned from the Guruplug failure. Any word on what one of these will cost?

Hey, that Pandaboard looks pretty nice! I had checked out the Beagleboard, and the Hawkboard, and even the Chumbyboard, all of which were lacking RAM in a big way, and were seriously low on MHz. The Pandaboard is a bit pricey, but finally has specs above the Sheeva.

When I connect via the USB port, there are two serial ports that show up. One of them works, the other doesn't. That may be the problem you are encountering. See if there's a second serial port that shows up when you connect, and try that one.

Awesome. It always surprises me how few people have heard of this thing. Smiley Good to get the word out. Smiley

Err, yeah.. It's not..  http://www.globalscaletechnologies.com/p-33-guruplug-display-devkit.aspx
How do you expect us to answer questions about something that only you have? heh.. I wish it was for sale, I'd love to play with one...

Wow, how'd you get one of those? I didn't think they were even forsale..

Is there even a decent JVM for the Sheeva? I don't think Sun/Oracle ever made an official ARMv5 version..

Also TwonkyMedia is installed and I can stream my photos and videos to my TV through a PS3.
WTF? Why this? That's a PAID app, that does the same thing as Mediatomb, which is free.. I'm actually rather surprised it even runs on the ARM CPU. Seriously, look into free open source options before spending money on this crap.

Can you use NFS or AFP rather than SMB?

Good article. Strange issue he has with memory. Sounds like he needs to ditch Apache and go with Lighttpd like most plug users have.

Compared to some of the Sheeva's main competitors in the embedded homebrew market, it's already WAY ahead of them on speed and ram. Compare to the BeagleBoard, or the HawkBoard.. It's far better than either of them. Sounds like the minecraft server is bloated. Is it open source? It should be possible to make it do some page swapping or otherwise figure out why it's wasting so much ram..
28  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: When will a cheap reliable plug better than Sheevaplug come out? on: November 10, 2010, 10:44:17 AM
Hmm, that'd probably work pretty well for me then, I've never used more than 101mb on my Sheeva, and I think that was when I was remotely running Firefox on it or something. Usually it's down near 62mb.. Smiley
If you think our hardware is bad, google the "Hawkboard".. They can't even get that thing to boot, the engineers screwed up the hardware so badly.

How much ram does the Dockstar have?
30  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Poll: What is the status of your SheevaPlug's Power Supply? on: November 08, 2010, 09:16:01 AM
I changed my vote. I got up this morning to find a failed power supply in my Sheeva. From my quick diagnostics. I found that it was only putting out about 2.9v. I grabbed a 5v/2.5a Class IV power supply from a powered USB hub and hard wired it into the Sheeva. Came right back to life afterwards. From the mixed success stories, it sounds like I lucked out. I imagine my plug will last a long long time now. I got 10 months out of the original supply, I marked "high power USB devices", though that's not really true.. I only used an unpowered hub and USB-ethernet adapter on the Sheeva, my USB HDD is a powered unit.
