CF Card speed for Swap file. "high-speed"???

Sat Jul 02, 2005 9:40 am

Can anyone tell me if there is an advantage of using a higher speed compact flash card for Swap file? I am not sure what the write and read spead for Roku is on the CF card. Would it be able to take advantage of higher speed card or there is a limitation on how fast Roku can read? Someone please respond.

It can't hurt. Just don't get Kingston. They don't work on the Roku.

But is there an advantage for higher speed.. I can get the 128 MB regular card for as little as 10 bucks but for high speed card, I have to get at least 256 MB plus have to pay 35-40 bucks.. I do not mind spending more but only if there is a "Real" advantage.. Can anyone from ROKU please respond!

The HD1000 manual says to use a card that's rated for at least 3MB/sec.

Yeah, you'll need someone fro Roku directly to tell you if the hardware itself is capable of taking advantage of a high speed CF card. Hope you get an answer, it's something that OUGHT to be in the FAQ.
