Hi, i think the problem resolved over the weekend.
I'm now using the latest firmware in the 409 and the tvix (set to gigabit) and the perfomance is much better..

now if i just could get rtorrent to work im as happy as could be with the 409-Pro! :)

Yep, very happy with it now, great product that works like it should with the tvix 6500a, could use a more quiet fan though (for livingroom use).

Well its my understanding that rtorrent can't be installed on the 409 yet, only the 109-209, or has it been fixed? if so can someone point me in the direction to how? :)

thanks!

Sorry for the long wait but I think we locked down the problem and solved it.
NFS on QNAP NAS now works perfectly with all the TviX series players

Please update the corresponding firmware image below:
Guys, we've fixed this problem finally.

Please update the corresponding firmwares below:
TS-109 / TS-109-Pro
TS-209 / TS-209-Pro

Thanks guys

Andy



Hey Andy,

Looks like TS-409 (non-pro) has been left out here. Is there any firmware release that will enable the NFS for TS-409 ?

One of the differences between pro and non-pro is NFS support.
Pro has additional support for NFS and AD.
non-Pro doesn't.

I've installed it on my TS-409.
You need to change the HDA_DATA to MD0_DATA in all the configs if you have raid enabled, other than that it works nicely.

I'm afraid the problem is back....

I have a TS-409 Pro with firmware Version 2.1.0 build 0624T.

If I connect it to the Gigabit switch, I can't use it with my TVIX 4100-SH. If I connect the Qnap directly to the router ( at 100 MBPS), everything works fine. I have tested carefully, changed cables, etc... The only way to have enough performance to watch something through the NFS share is to have the Qnap NOT connected to a Gigabit port.

I can confirm this problem with GigE on 2.1.0 build 0624T as well.

@qnapfrankie

I described the bug in my post: it is network performance related, the only missing info might be that I use a Tvix 4100SH with the latest firmware 1.4.52

The symptom: network transfers slow down to a point you can't view anything smoothly, and the NFS folders take forever to show the contents.

Hi We will release a fix for this issue, the fix was for TS-109/209 in the initial post. One question, when you say the problem is back, did you mean it was working all fine before a certain version of firmware?

Hmmm, I can't tell. I don't remember if I was using the 409 with the Tvix prior to the firmware upgrade of late June.

Sorry, maybe someone else can help you on this one...
