Re: USB 3.0 hubs unreliable on Pi4

I for one, is very saddened, that as of now, there does not exist 1x single powered usb3.0 hub, that agreed upon, that actually works flawlessly with the RPI4. Will monitor this thread closely. I have asked in amazon qa for the anker powered hub, but not sure people understand correctly. https://www...

I am having huge problems with transfer speed when using quirks. I have made a very detailed post about it here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=261857 Instead of having more than 100 megabytes/s to usb3 drive it gets reduced to approx 22mb/s with quirk enabled.

RPI4 - Bittorrent download speed (transmission)

Hi. All previos versions of RPI had huge problems having sustainable download speeds due to usb2 shared USB and Ethernet bus, and where not suitable for high speed torrent downloads, which is why I changed to another brand. I have a 1000/1000mbit/s internet speed, so ISP speed is not a bottleneck in...

Re: Torrent download box- RPi2 not quite powerfull enough :(

That link doesn't really show bittorrent performance whatsoever. Yes it shows the Pi is very capable when reading and writing data sequentially, and can easily max out the 100mbit. But thats not how torrents work? I am talking about real life performance, including non sequential writing, multiple t...

Can you really get 11-12MB/s on the pi? Stable? What is the source/destination? It is an external HD. I have tried with flash as well with no luck. Right now i'm not capable to test these issues, but I know, that the CPU is not maxed out. I have tried configuring the systctl file, i have tried diffe...

Re: Torrent download box- RPi2 not quite powerfull enough :(

Thank you for the answer. I am using ext4 on the HDD. (I know NTFS for example can give a lot of problems) Yes theoretically is one thing, but it is more or less impossible to reach any steady/stable speed on the pi. The CPU is not the culprit, but I think the design of the PI is the main culprit he...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

That is off course a good idea, but then I would loose the opportunity to upload the pictures to dropbox as soon as they are taken, as that would require the theifs not to take the RPi with them. That cannot be guaranteed unfortunately, unless it could somehow be implemented that the the recorded vi...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Thank you very much for the quick reply.

As I wanted to use it for home surveillance when im not home, I really wanted it to be able to take more than one picture a second in case if the burglar comes into the house, to be able to have more information on him/them.

Thank you

Re: Hardware DTS decoding

There havent been a reply from the mods in a long time regarding this issue.
1) Could be due to technical problems/licensing problems with DTS
2) The RPi team have other priorities more important than this.

Lets hope its option number 2 :)
