Re: Torrent server

What image are you using? I remember that latest Raspbian image have some USB fix, can't remember exactly. This USB fix should improve performance. I'm using Raspbian 3.2.27+. While setting the max memory fixed the crashing, rTorrent couldn't hash files anymore due to a lack of memory. But the torr...

Thanks for sharing your config file. I just wish there was a fix for transmission as well.

Re: Torrent server

Judging from my system log the problem was that the USB bus was used too heavily so the system couldn't allocate memory anymore, resulting in a crash. What image are you using? I remember that latest Raspbian image have some USB fix, can't remember exactly. This USB fix should improve performance. ...

Re: Torrent server

I think there is definetly something wrong with transmission build at least. As many others have pointed out, one can still download from wget at high speed without any problems. I have read this whole thread and tried so many different settings but its hopeless. I have avoided my pi from crashing w...

Transmission BitTorrent settings and performance

Hi. I thought of this thread as a thread where people could post their experience with Transmission Bittorrent on the RPI, and maybe share their settings on pastebin or other places for people to benefit. And mot important of all.. Maybe someone out there just have the right luck with the settings e...

Re: Rasberry Pi as standalone torrent client

Forget all about it pal.. A 100 seeds?
Try seeding 1 torrent and see if it even can saturate your connection.. I think not.

I cant even download 1mb/s stable. I have tried everything between heaven and earth, but nothing helps.

Your project sounds like utopia on a rpi!

Re: Overclocking

@Tompen @portets (and others) Can you please try (in config.txt) init_emmc_clock=100000000 and in cmdline.txt sdhci-bcm2708.emmc_clock_freq=100000000 and let me know if the corruption has gone, and whether sudo hdparm -t /dev/mmcblk0 gives the expected result. This should work with existing kernels...

Re: Hardware DTS decoding

We are fully aware that the downmixing has been fixed by dom which is great.

Now we need DTS hardware decoding..
The PI chokes on DTS decoding in its current form!

There are 3 scenarios. DTS passthough: DTS 5.1 bitstream -> VCHIQ -> television ARM decode: DTS 5.1 bitstream -> ARM decode to 6 channel PCM -> VCHIQ -> audio_mixer -> television GPU decode : DTS 5.1 bitstream -> VCHIQ -> GPU decode to 6 channel PCM -> audio_mixer -> television VCHIQ is the message...

Re: Hardware DTS decoding

Thank you for your answer. So I have understood it correctly that the chip do NOT do the full processing of the DTS 5.1 stream? The openmax_mixer software helps it on the way, by already weighting the channels, so essentieally (very boldly) the the audio path is DTS 5.1 bitstream -> DTS 2.0 bitstrea...

Re: Hardware DTS decoding

Important question for developers Rpi. DTS/AC3 hardware decoding is possible in Rpi??. Yes it is. All ready to go for omxplayer and xbmc. Unfortunately DTS requires compliance testing before we can licence it. We're investigating that. This is great news dom . I'm looking very much forward to it. J...

Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

Can anyone confirm or deny that xbian 0.63 has moved to the new xbmc tree, which should solve the low volume issue on 5.1-> 2.0 audio playback (DTS and AC3)?

Re: Hardware DTS decoding

Thx alot mate.

I was sure the chip was able to do DTS 5.1 to stereo downmix decoding over HDMI, I just wasn't sure it was something you were looking into!

Hardware DTS decoding

The MPEG2 decoding is GREAT news. Would it be possible to use the same model for DTS decoding? Would it be possible to buy a license for this as well, so DTS can be decoded in HW? Not everyone has a system that can decode DTS bitstreams, so we are dependent on the RPi to do so! And the SW is simply ...

Re: XBian - Small, Fast, Lightweight XBMC solution

So far great release. However, and i have not compared to the other distros, the xbmc.bin is consuming around 50% CPU, when just doing nothing. I have to exit the XBMC in order for the RPi to reduce its cpu usage dramatically. Can this somehow be fixed? Because when I do want to use the RPi again, I...
