Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Have been searching for a solution to a particular scenario for some time without luck but i think this might give me what i need! I have two apple homepods one upstairs one down. My use case is quite simple, in the mornings i would like my pi to use a radio stream url (bbc2) as an alarm and automat...

Re: pi3b+ slower than expected internet speed - ethernet

Re: pi3b+ slower than expected internet speed - ethernet

Re: pi3b+ slower than expected internet speed - ethernet

yes me too but i can only compare to what else is going on in the network and other devices doing similar tasks. unfortunately there's so many bits of equipment it's difficult to pinpoint where the issue is.

Re: pi3b+ slower than expected internet speed - ethernet

thank you again for the replies. one of those links does talk about the quality of the sd card used. i wonder if that may be a factor. sandisk ultras were of fairly decent quality so i thought unless anyone wants to tell me otherwise! everything else in my network is capable of maxing my speed using...

Re: pi3b+ slower than expected internet speed - ethernet

thank you for the replies. couple of follow up questions. i have tried iperf3 between my wired mac and the pi. the pi shows a steady connection speed of 238mbits which is more like it but that's local device to local device. what could be causing the slow downloads externally? alongside speediest-cl...
