when I need to transfer files to/from this server, I use filezilla program in windows. it transfers at the speed of your connection with your ISP.

Re: Slow Drives by dz2kdz2k, 29 Mar 2015 16:33

its not the connection thats the bottleneck here. since the internal speedtest only does those speeds as well…

that and it used to go loads faster

First of all thank you for brilliant guide!

I run MyBook 2 TB which I now have upgraded to Twonky 8.0.1 and a Netgear NeoTV 300SL. However subtitles (.srt files with same name as .mkv file) are not working on .mkv files.
Could that maybe be solved with changing Media Receiver type in Twonky? There are some Netgear choices but not the correct one.

also note that the my book world ii has a gigabit ethernet. I have it connected to a router that's gigabit capable and have no trouble streaming hd over powerline.

Your brave to even touch any setting regarding raid. I installed tvmobili and it works great.

Re: Slow Drives by dz2kdz2k, 27 Mar 2015 18:43

thing is, these are in raid for a reason. im using them in mirror so i will "never" lose any data. losing all my raw images would mean serious issues.

also, i forgot to mention that the drives have been completely reformatted right now, there is no data on there yet its still so slow…

(there goes my theory of slow thx to fragmentation… before i started looking around xfs_db showed 94% fragmentation… )

here is the output of /proc/mdstat

dacotacowd:~# cat /proc/mdstat

Jbod method is faster than raid as it doesnt have to write to 2 hdds. Your data is less secure in jbod. Thats my 2 cents. If u make change in gui, u lose all data switching modes.

Re: Slow Drives by dz2kdz2k, 27 Mar 2015 18:25

basically, i got the mybook world edition 2 a few months ago from my brother and it was working fine then.
had a good transfer speed of 10MB/s which im guessing is the limit of my 100Mbps network.

but recently it started going slower and slower…

right now the transfer speed is only 2-3MB/s which is to slow to work with in lightroom or to watch a movie at full HD…

to shed some light i logged into the device and did a hdparm …

dacotacowd:~# hdparm -tT /dev/md2

/dev/md2:
 Timing cached reads:   242 MB in  2.00 seconds = 120.94 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  7 MB in  3.31 seconds =   3.45 MB/sec
dacotacowd:~# umount /mnt/data/
dacotacowd:~# hdparm -tT /dev/md2

/dev/md2:
 Timing cached reads:   270 MB in  2.00 seconds = 134.99 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:   22 MB in  3.31 seconds =   6.65 MB/sec

wait, why is it so much faster when the raid is unmounted ?

can anyone shed some light here? :/ a fix?

The wordpress installation has created a conflict with the apache server (web GUI). The easiest solution is to reinstall the firmware which will remove all the hacks you created. You can reinstall the firmware from SSH.

Just for the record, DLNA is a standard who support limit file, not Twonky fault.

Twonky on a MyBook can't transcode (the video is not convert to insert subtitles), MyBook is not powerfull for that.

Many things depends of the DLNA client, I've got Samsung TV, all is working fine, video in mkv even in high rate, multi-audio, and subtitles :)

You need to see your TV manual who list what format and bitrate is support.

I resent the email again yesterday. Please answer this time. I have donated twice.

Just for the record, i've found a few file formats that Twonky cannot play. I've also had trouble with Twonky not putting subtitles into the video stream. Anyways, the best advice i can give you is that you should buy a WD TV Live. Those devices can play almost any type of format directly by browsing your MBL via Samba/NFS/Mac servers - in addition to receive Twonky streams. They are the most robust media players on the market; worth every penny if you have a lot of local media content.

I've converted them to mp4 and it does the same thing. What format should I convert them to that is compatible enough?

Also, interestingly, if I converted them to AVI it I can't play it in VLC on my PC I get the exact same effect on the video.

Twonky correctly identifies my TV as a Panasonic Viera. Feeling a bit stumped really. Any advice on how to remux without header compression?

thanks.

Easiest solution is to do a firmware reset/upgrade from the command line. Search the forum for a guide.

Search search search - the first rules for a noob.

What sizes were the MBL sold with ?

Buy the 4T disk and install it. Remember, you have to install the OS on the drive before inserting into the enclosure.
