Two HD1000/B with Pyramid fixes - free + shipping

I have two HD1000s sitting idle. If you're still checking here, you know what they can (and can't do). If you have a use for more, you can have one for the cost of shipping - $20. (Or if you live near SF, pick up!) Both are HD1000 model Bs. Both had the power supply problem but were then repaired by...

It is possible in the future. I have been holding off since I'm worried about people hammering free public cameras with a continuous stream of requests. I guess this is probably less of concern now in the days of streaming video and slashdottings. :-) No - I think that instinct is correct. If they ...

A final request

Anthony, for better and worse, I understand the reasons behind the conclusion. At this point in time I agree that it makes more sense to move forward, if you're still willing to take a chance in the nascent video market. Every new device does some level of wmv and mpeg4 (though most require a PC ser...

I think this statement is applicable to many of the companies in development as well. Can't blame the customer for most of the crap being promised by marketing.

it worth remembering that the Kuro project disappeared for several *months* and is still a faint shadow of the Slug efforts, despite much more potent hardware. Buffalo is not an innovator. And I'm still pissed about the huge run of 300g HGs with the faulty flash.

MPlay's the best thing to ever happen to the Photobridge. I be willing to bet 90+% of PB's would be doorstops without MPlay. And it's pretty well 'finished' other than maybe some minor tweaks. Aside from when guests are over and the slideshows are running, I do two things - play movies on mplay, an...

small bug that shouldn't matter - the 255.255.0.0 can be further restricted to the class C with 255.255.255.0. you should check /var/log/messages for the errors from the server side. what unslung (or openslug, etc) are you using, and what nfs package? why the hosts.allow? I'd remove it for now and s...

that product has the same flaw most do - you need to be running your PC to supply it content. If I'm going to do that, I might as well run an HTPC.

All of my content comes off lightweight NAS devices.

Well my 3rd PSU died last night while I was watching a show. That's 3 out of 3! I really thought this one would survive. I put the HD1000 on 3 inch stilts with a small muffin fan under the unit. I'm now convinced that every first generation HD1000 will eventually self-destruct. At your house, it ma...

I'd like to know the power source for those units that lost their PS.

surge? regulating UPS or power conditioner? Wall jack?

mine did have an issue in that same timeframe, but for me it was a loss of the remote control sensor - only worked at a range of a foot.

netperf is unix only, right? for network speed only (not having hard drives enter the equation), 150 is pretty bad. I was testing with (Qperf?) which had PC beacons and IIRC was seeing peaks of 600 between a machine with nforce4 giga going to a PCI based intel card. One aspect I didn't fully trust o...

Interestingly, the "cute unicode bug" you referred to in your previous post was fixed in a firmware update that was released within hours (literally) of your post. Sure, but they had to go out and buy a buffalo just to find out what people were talking about. And it still won't stream HD over a net...
