I just tried the the Debian package as well. Worked okay here on a fresh install of Debian. Web interface to Squeezebox Server even feels pretty snappy too...

The alpha is old...there is now a 1.0 installer...

Try the reset button. If that doesn't work, try running the installer...

Maybe this might help...

Somebody is already selling a plug with an eSATA connector:

This application looks neat...but a plug with an eSATA connector looks even neater:

Smallnetbuilder.com has the first review I have seen with the device open:

http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/content/view/30936/75/

There seems to be a 10 pin header on the board, but there seems to be no label other than J1. Perhaps a JTAG or USB port? maybe USB-TTL?

One way to tell what device you have is to use this utility on Windows:

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/usb_devices_view.html

or this one on Linux:

Then at least you can verify the device is being seen on the USB, and what version it is.

Maybe these two posts might help (I haven't personally tried either):

Just a quick follow up for anyone interested...

I successfully installed the Meteohub app on a co-workers plug today. Pretty straightforward. The installer app and docs that docbee has put together work pretty well. Just in time for winter in Alaska...

I made a related post on the meteohub.de forum - http://www.meteohub.de/joomla/index.php?option=com_fireboard&Itemid=32&func=view&id=5425&catid=25

I will ask any further questions there.

This may be a little redundant, but if you have a newer plug, would this section of the wiki be apropos?

28  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Re: Which USB hard drive would you recommend for a 24/7 server? on: September 11, 2009, 01:22:07 PM
Depending on how your mac is configured, you could always boot from an Ubuntu LiveCD and run the process that way. I haven't tried it on my MacBook Pro yet, but I also bet you could install Linux in a virtual machine within Virtualbox and get it to work that way too.

http://www.virtualbox.org/

Both Ubuntu and Virtualbox are free as in beer so no real monetary cost.

I have run the alpha-6 installer from my Ubuntu box at work but haven't tried the new 1.0 installer from Windows yet. I may try natively on Windows and virtually on my Mac. Only difference is I am running VM Fusion instead of Virtual Box, but I guess I could install that as well. There goes my weekend...

Even if you brick it, you should be able to get back up and running using the Installer package. It was just updated today and now also runs in Windows as well as Linux. Check the u-boot section of the forum for info and the download section of plugcomputer.org to get started.

For a serial terminal on Mac OS X, try out CoolTerm. It is freeware.
