its a great system, I am using it right now to watch an episode of Battlestar Galactica, stored on my NSLU2, streamed over my ethernet to the HD1K rebroadcast over the Avcast to the CATV-to-USB box in my office so I can watch on my laptop, using my Sony AV3100 to run the HD1K through the tiny Avcast IR repeater on my desk.
Woah! :shock:

NAS with 2 GbE ports

Tue Dec 20, 2005 9:38 am

Thecus N2100 has 2 GbE ports. I wonder if this is fast enough for HDTV streams?

100BaseT is plenty fast enough for HDTV streams. The Photobridge can't handle more than ~25Mbits/sec via SMB or ~35Mbits/sec via NFS, sustained. Once you go to 100Mbit/sec wired, the PB can't handle faster anyway.

Samba, UPnP or DLNA?

Is PhotoBridge accessing NAS thru Samba, UPnP, or DLNA?

Don't forget about the ReadyNas or X6 from Infrant. It does Raid5 so there is some protection in case of drive failure. It also does UPnP, SlimServer 6.2.1 (for slimroku), and is plenty fast to stream HDTV. It is also a print server and many other things. Works great with the PhotoBridge. You can use NFS or Samba for sharing. --Darin

I'm using two 1.6TB NAS boxes from Infrant running RAID5. They work great! Very slow for bulk writing (14 hours for 350GB), but fast for one-off writes and reading.

7MB/sec isn't a bad rate, esp for 100bt (or are you gigabit) and using samba. The initial load is painful on all of the NAS devices.

I'm running gigabit. It wasn't a big deal, just slower than I thought.

The Infrant's write speed is a lot slower than I hoped.
But now that it's full, it's not as big a deal. Just a pain filling it up.
Thanks,

I'd be interested in the speed when using nfs. I know the beta firmware on infrants has some speed improvements for samba.
