No spindown anymore..

Post by Rudi64 » Fri Jun 16, 2017 10:56 pm

I have bought a nice second hand HS-210 with a brand new WD RED 3T HDD.
Install it with the latest firmware, and as i just want to to use it for streaming my music
disabling most of the app and stations , just have Minimserver and java running.
Had set the standby to 5min everything was fine, but when setting the standby to 30min
it refused to spin down after that time. Reverting back to 5min, no spin down anymore...
I'm sure i have everything disabled, even Qcloud..
When back and forth to a old firmware HS-210_20160823-4.2.2, but no cure..
Any toughts, solutions :?: :?:

And touchdown.. :DD finally reaches standby.
Seems miminserver writes a lot to a log file on the public share.
Removed the path solves it...
Thanks for the support,dolbyman 8)

Thanks
