Says I can't post links as guest and low karma? I'm not posting any damn links. wtf?! I can't post my problem.
Let's see if this works.
This is supposed to be a gigabit media player, yet the most I get is about 3 MBs transfers. That's not even 10_100 ethernet speed!!
I often want to transfer files to the box back and forth but this speed is brutal. I download multi gigabyte files on my pc from torrent sites and then transfer them to the box. I'd use the builtin torrent on the aios but it's too buggy and never works properly for me, at least not like uTorrent does.
So other than disconnecting the MP and hooking it up to my pc each time I want to transfer files…what is the fastest method I can transfer files to the media player? The only way I can do it now is by using windows explorer and going to myxtreamer then sda1 and copying files there. But obviously at 3 MBs it takes forever to copy an 8 GB folder.
I thought I'd try f_t_P but I can't even login to it. What is the username & password? No info on this anywhere it seems! I tried the root userid and blank password which works if I telnet to it but it doesn't work for f_t_p.
Another thing. When I enter myxtreamer using my browser and click on Setup on the bottom left it takes me to a login screen where I can enter a username & password and then confirm. I assume I'm creating an account, but it doesn't do anything. What is that for anyway?
owners with ext3 formatted drives reported 8 MB/s write (push to the AIOS) and about double of that reading from the AIOS (pull) using SAMBA.
Using official firmware.
Even 8 MBs isn't quite 10_100 speeds. Besides, it's supposed to be gigabyte speed and we're not even close to that. So you're saying I can improve my speeds to at least 8 MBs if I move all 3 TB of files to my pc BRACKET that would take like a week at these speeds CLOSE BRACKET, format it via Pivos menu option and move the files back?
I don't really need the extra speed pulling from the box. What I really need is the speed pushing to it since that's what I do 95% of the time. 8 MBs is still better than 3 MBs so I'll try to find the space to move all that to my pc, BRACKET won't be easy as I don't have that much space, even if I was to erase a lot CLOSE BRACKET. Then I'll format it from the menu in pivos.
But now I think to myself. If it's going to be formatted with EXT3. How am I going to move the files from my windows pc to the ext3 hdd? Windows won't recognize it. Am I supposed to move it over ethernet at 8 MBs? Ouch!
And what's with this f'n site telling me I can't publish links? Does this message, so far, contain any links to you? No! So here I am trying to figure out what to delete or change to post this f'n msg!
Ok thanks, I'll try that if I'm able to make room for 3 TB of data to move.
Can you just confirm that formatting using your latest firmware, 3.0.12, will erase my 3 TB hdd as EXT 3 inode 128? Or how should I be formatting it so that 3.0.12 will still recognize the hdd?
Btw, that firmware is messed up.
1) Any changes made in the Setup do not stick after powering the system off and on. The only way they do stick is the old workaround of doing it while playing a video.
2) Anything I download (ie Juke*ing, I forgot the actual name now) does download, but when it says if you want to upgrade now and I select YES it doesn't do it. So it seems no changes will stick.
This thread hasn't seen a new post for a year, so I don't know if anyone will read this
I too bought one of these units and was devastated when I tried copying to the HHD.
Here's what I'm doing now:
I have two methods.
Method #1 (50MB/sec)
I pull the HDD out of the AIOS and plug it into an external USB 3 Adapter. I now plug the adapter into a USB 3 port on my PC. Acceptable speeds are achieved when only copying 50GB of data.
Method # 2 (True SATA III 6GB/sec)
One of my PCs has a convenient little opening where I simply pulled a SATA III data and power cable thru. I keep them capped with rubber sleeves when not in use. I simply shut down my PC, take the 3TB HDD (NTFS format) out of my AIOS, plug it in to the cables and fire up the PC. I now copy files to the HDD with blazing speeds.
Yes, I have to connect and disconnect with my PC off, but when I can copy 800 GB to the HDD in less than an hour, the (2) boot trade-off is well worth it.
I hope I've help someone else with this info.
