    Better question...is there a (current, updated) list anywhere of adapters that do work with the PBO Core?

    (And am I the only one still using and enjoying the PBO Core? Haven't found anything that...

    Me, too. And I entered these forums this evening, and found something of a ghost town.

    I guess I shouldn't complain; I got years more out of my PBO Core than I got out of the WDTV which was EOL'ed...

    Haven't had any problems here with the scene releases; the MP4s are smaller and better quality than the XVID thanks to x264.

    I admit I was expecting to have to remux everything into an MKV...

    Mount USB Read-only

    (*sigh*) I don't know if it's just my PBO or (as I suspect) it's a universal issue compounded by my particular setup, but I no longer trust using the internal software to write to any drives. We've...

    Precompiled nano?

    Look, I'll admit it. I hate vi. Despise it. Loathe it. Rip it out of every linux box I run. Stomp on the removed bytes afterwards. I mean I really hate the colon-loving thing.

    I see there's a...

    Thanks. I ended up remuxing the problem file after experimenting with VLC to get the right amount of "slip" but it sure would have been easier to correct that during playback...
  7. Audio - adjust sync during playback?

    Is there a way to adjust the audio sync during playback in the GUI with the PBO and P61 (actually P61-Beta- (BC16+).mega.YT)? I don't mean reencode or remux, just "slip" the audio a bit during...

    Hum...maybe your next software version can include a VNC client/server? ;)

    Yep, you're right; remount /, change the two /tmp/package/samba/conf/smb_* files and reboot. The /tmp/smb files (linked from /usr/local/bin/package/samba/lib - seriously, are there enough symlinks in...

    Side question...

    Why is it I occasionally get an "Invalid Argument" error with the umount command?


    / # umount /tmp/usbmounts/sda1

    Nope, just using shipped P02. (I want fine-grain control of any transfer software I use, so I won't be using the PBO to handle that task.)

    And don't make the mistake I made and use MOVE instead of...

    As someone who was abandoned by Western Digital and left with a buggy device that was prematurely EOL'd (forcing me to move to another device, when I chose the PBO), I agree that any firmware update...

    umount through UI?

    While I'm using a USB SATA dock for large hard drives, this should have relevance to any USB device. I have suffered a pretty consistent series of lost files, 0-byte files, and other file system...

    Hum...didn't (but probably should have) occur to me that the device would use a swap partition on the drive. That suggests the drive is used not only for storage, but to make the device itself more...

    Which file system?

    Ok, so I reclaimed a hard drive to stick into the Box Office, and I want to reformat it. Should I use ext2? ext3? FAT32? NTFS? While I'd prefer finer-grain control over the format operation, should I...
