Here goes my first post …
Drobo/DroboShare are, in general running without a hitch with regards to the file sharing itself. I set up FUPPES with a single WMV file for testing, played perfectly on my PS3 - fast forwarding, rewind, pause, everything felt like Tivo quality responsiveness or better - watched about 20 minutes of the video (it’s 1 hour long WMV around 780 megs)
Watched some TV, went back to the PS3 to play it again (I was extremely excited at how well it worked the first time) - tried to play the video - black screen. Then the video popped up, played fine for 5 seconds or so, froze for 20 seconds, played 5, etc etc.
- Restarted droboshare and ps3 - same thing
- SSH’d in, did a top to look at CPU usage, while this extreme stuttering is going on, cpu is virtually zero
- During this problem I was able to play the video from the mapped drive itself on a computer with no problem
This is so frustrating because it was perfect the first time out, now no matter what I reset - I’ve reset everything, reinstalled FUPPES, still freezes constantly. Again, CPU is zero, goes up to like 1-2% during playback then back to zero.
Another note - I did try a 3 gig mpg later on with identical results. So far the only files on my drobo (got it yesterday) are these two video files, FUPPES, and the app admin utility.
Anyone have any ideas? Any help is greatly appreciated.
