That answers that, then. I haven't tried a 16 gig card... I never did manage to get an 8 gig card working properly, either. I'm using a 4 gig right now.

Some files seem to work better than others. I think it's related to the bitrate: the 750 seems to like higher bitrate files.

I don't know the details yet, but a 45 minute show in a file about 350M in size was awfully jumpy looking, whereas a similar length show in a 500M file looked fine. Last night we watched a show in MKV format (about a gig in size, HD) and it looked amazing.

What's interesting is that the smaller-size files looked OK when I used to convert them to DVD format.

I wonder if it's the container, not the bitrate... Perhaps if I converted them to MKV?

Nifty. Experimenting, this weekend.

What's in /dev?

ls -al /dev/mmc*

Success. And, painless. I installed Coherence with an apt-get of "python-coherence", and pointed it at my media directory on the plug's external drive.

The DSM-750 arrived an hour or so ago, and I plugged it in and gave it my wireless information, and immediately the Coherence share showed up on the screen. I selected it, and there were the media files. Selected one, and sure enough, I'm watching an AVI on my TV.

This is going to be a fun weekend. Smiley

Works perfectly. Thank you!!!
21  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.30-rc4 new release on: April 30, 2009, 08:52:59 PM
Looks like ext3 would have to be built in to the kernel for it to mount as ext3. I'm guessing that modules aren't processed yet at that point -- makes sense, 'cause how can a module be loaded before the filesystem on which it's located is mounted?
22  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.30-rc4 new release on: April 30, 2009, 08:46:38 PM
Gotcha. Thanks for the help, I'm rusty on this stuff! Perhaps I should try to get Slackware up on the plug, just to polish my chops. Smiley
23  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: 2.6.30-rc4 new release on: April 30, 2009, 06:59:13 PM
Couple of things; I'm not sure I've seen this before on boot:

EXT2-fs warning (device mmcblk0p1): ext2_fill_super: mounting ext3 filesystem as ext2

Also, on shutdown, it was complaining (not sure about the exact message) something about a device mapper.

But, it's up and running! *cheers*

...same speeds (actually a little slower) with the .30 kernel.

Hmmm.
25  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Network: writes fast / reads slow? on: April 30, 2009, 05:58:47 PM
Uh oh. That means I have to give it a try. Can't help myself, you know how it is. Here we go...
26  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Network: writes fast / reads slow? on: April 30, 2009, 04:49:35 PM
I'll give .30 a spin at some point. I think it's still the debug build out there, isn't it? I'll go see.

Hey! This Coherence thing is great! I don't have the DMS-750 yet, but after starting the Coherence daemon (and adjusting the config file), the plug shows up in my Windows Media Player library. Click on videos, and there are the videos I've downloaded. Click them, and they stream/play.

I'm pretty excited to see this all hooked up tomorrow. Fingers crossed that it's not DOA!

And bidirectionally, it's looking similar:

Hey, that's a nifty tool. Here we go:

With today's shiny new Windows 7 RC as the client:

C:\Users\Alex\Downloads>iperf.exe -c 192.168.0.3 -t 60
------------------------------------------------------------
Client connecting to 192.168.0.3, TCP port 5001

[ ID] Interval       Transfer     Bandwidth
[148]  0.0-60.0 sec  2.18 GBytes   312 Mbits/sec

With the plug as the client:

alex@rlyeh:~$ iperf -c 192.168.0.2 -t 60
------------------------------------------------------------
Client connecting to 192.168.0.2, TCP port 5001
TCP window size: 16.0 KByte (default)
------------------------------------------------------------

I'll go google iperf now, see if it's something I can get going this evening.

So --- you're seeing similar performance differences, it seems. Five times faster in one direction than the other.

I'd sort of like to figure this one out.

Yeah, I realized after I initalliy posted that scp wasn't going to be a good choice for this test. Smiley
