it is astonishing to see just how much running a bittorrent client on the DNS-323 slows down its total throughput for file sharing via SAMBA. i am able to get around 20MB/s when i turn off the bittorrent client, but while it is on, i only get about 5MB/s. crazy!
i was having some trouble copying a file over from the NAS. i telnet’d into the NAS and tried to copy the file over and i got an input/output error. clearly something was wrong with the disk…and then i remembered that there was a power failure last night and it could very well be that … Continue reading dns-323 file system errors
always, always problems with the d-link dns-323, mediatomb, and the ps3. it appears that for some of the xvid AVIs that i get, the ps3 just refuses to play them. i suspect the culprit here is that whatever encoding is being used is something that the ps3 just doesn’t quite understand. the files play fine … Continue reading dns-323, mediatomb, the ps3, and “The data type is not supported”
i bit the bullet and purchased a license for the twonky server on the d-link dns-323 nas. i’ve tried other solutions, but none were as reliable as the twonky server, i’m sad to say. it really upsets me that there isn’t a good open source solution, but i guess we’re talking about a pretty limited … Continue reading ps3 and twonky on d-link dns-323
for the longest time i had been struggling with putty telnet/ssh’ing into my DNS-323. every so often i would drop characters and so typing anything in the shell on the NAS was a monumental waste of time. i have finally figured out why this is happening. it turns out that the reason why i’m having … Continue reading dns-323 putty missing characters
i’ve been using transmission and clutch for dns-323 for a while now and i’ve set it up and it looks like it is operating correctly, it doesn’t look like it’s working well. i’ve been having huge performance issues where i would peak to my max_download rate, but i don’t seem to be sustaining that rate. … Continue reading d-link dns-323 and transmission torrent client
over the weekend, i decided to install a new torrent client on the NAS. apparently there’s a port of transmission for the nas. coupled with clutch, a webUI for the command line client, it looks and feels like the mac os x transmission client. the memory footprint on this client is significantly smaller than that … Continue reading dns-323 torrent client – transmission
i’ve been tinkering with the home network trying to figure out why i’ve been having issues with the media server. everything seemed to be working decently for a while, but recently, i’ve been getting stuttering or pausing video.
the ps3 came today and i eagerly hooked it up to try it out. frustration upon frustration set in when i couldn’t get the ps3’s HDMI to work. my configuration is a little awkward though. i’m actually feeding the ps3’s HDMI connection to my outlaw receiver which only has DVI inputs. so i am currently … Continue reading ps3 and d-link dns-323 nas
one of my biggest pet peeves about the DNS-323 hacks is that there doesn’t appear to be any easy way to automate the download of torrents to the mldonkey client. mldonkey works great once you get the torrent file to it, but getting the torrent file to it can be a bit tricky. sure there’s … Continue reading more DNS-323…
