Re: B3 update kills fireplay

I did not made a reset but I did turn off and then on again the DAAP in Services menu. This did the trick.

Re: B3 update kills fireplay

It actually worked for me with 2.3.2... but now, since I upgraded to 2.4 it doesn't anymore.

As beweb said... it is connecting to http://b3/music and never connects.

Re: DLNA on Excito Bubba 2 ver. 2.4-RC1

C'mon, this article is from 2008. When I check new Sony TV specifications for instance I see other formats as well (including H.264). And as far as I have seen Sony is usually has the fewest formats in their DLNA list (other brands like Samsung offer some more). The things are better today than they...

Re: Extremely slow file transfer after 2.3 update?

I made a new installation of Win7 system on a computer that previously had Vista. Now I get WiFi transfer speeds of about 8 MBytes/s from 1 meter away... this sounds more reasonable. So there trurly are some OS/WiFi card and B3 WiFi issues.

Re: FTP port (21) not accessible

Yes, there was a line missing in the /etc/hosts. I added the B3.localdomain like it said in the other post (http://forum.excito.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3328&p=16799&hilit=proftp#p16799), now it works just fine. It's funny though, I remember going through those posts when I tried to solve the problem...

FTP port (21) not accessible [SOLVED]

Hello all, I have a problem with port 21 (FTP). I just can't get it open. In the Firewall settings it shows as "on", but when I run a port scanner it states it is closed. Then I switch it off and try again... closed again. I turn it on again and try again... still closed. I called my ISP if by any c...

Re: No access to new Excito B3

Before you do that you can also try to contact Excito support (support@excito.com). I understand they answer very promptly and offer the support needed.

Re: No access to new Excito B3

Did you connect it to LAN or WAN port? In your case, since you have routing done by Netgear it should in in LAN only and B3 should automatically go to Server mode. You may also try to connect directly from PC to B3 (LAN), as Binkem suggested. If your PC is set to get IP automatically, then your B3 w...

Re: Transfer speed

I have Intel WiFi 5300 AGN... so n300 client, but I usually get 2 - 3 MBytes/sec. The funny thing is, my other laptop has an Intel 5100 client and gets faster transfer rates (on occasion it happened to get as high as 5MBytes/sec, if the computer was in the same room as B3 of course). Can we expect a...

Re: Transfer speed

OK, so no way to handle HD content over WiFi... then having only 1 LAN port really is limiting... I was expecting to handle some of the streaming and file transfers over Wifi but I guess I will have to find some other solution. What I also experience is that sometimes WiFi is not responsive as it sh...

Re: Transfer speed

Thank you for the reply... I did search the forum through and through and I also found your issue with Win7 and B3... however I have the Intel WiFi card and I was actually more interested in expected transfer speeds. I saw johannes published tests of transfer speeds for wired connection, but I found...

Re: Extremely slow file transfer after 2.3 update?

So...could this be a limitation of the CPU? I would think the B3 has enough grunt to handle this. Could be dodgy drivers? I get a lot faster speeds so it must be something related to your unit or environment. What are your speeds? I have a brand new B3, I only made initial configuration and update ...
