What exactly does this new version change?
changes in this new version are:
* patch to smbfs in kernel to use larger segment size
* version string change
The patch also enables a new smbmount option, so if you are intrepid you could revert your segment size to 4096 by adding the string "segment=4096" to the list of smbmount options in your smbprefs file. For example:
That's the theory
, anyway. I haven't tested it very thoroughly.
I'm running MAC OSX too. When I select a file to play in Sonata it says Working then waits approx 5 minutes before starting to play - same thing in between tracks - a 5 minute delay. I've tried the segment=4096 in smbprefs and the SO_KEEPALIVE SO_RCVBUF=8576 SO_SNDBUF=8576 in smb.conf but nothing makes any difference! Help!
Hi. Here's what worked for me:
1) Don't mess with the segment size on the Roku; use the default settings. You may want to reinstall the firmware upgrade.
2) Put the following lines in your /etc/smb.conf file on the Mac. Don't know if they're all doing something, but I put these in (can't remember where on the net I saw this) and it started working.
socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_KEEPALIVE SO_SNDBUF=4096 SO_RCVBUF=4096
max xmit = 65536
read size = 1024
dead time = 15
getwd cache = yes
wins support = yes
You can try different settings for SO_SNDBUF and SO_RCVBUF, but these are the only ones that gave me decent transfer speeds.
