Re: PlayOn!X firmware (Optware friendly r4824)
May I asked if there is a way to set Transmission auto run upon turning on the PLayonHD?
Almost in the same way as starting lighttpd:
1) Temporarily using InfoSite's System -> One-timers -> Start transmission option, or
2) Temporarily using telnet: start transmission
3) On every power-on when you remove hash just before start transmission in InfoSite's Editor, or
4) On every power-on when you remove hash just before start transmission in /usr/local/etc/myS (in telnet)
And why do i oftentimes received an error "Tracker returned an error: Requested download is not authorized for use with this tracker" --- (which could also be the reason why BTPD keeps on crashing)? Why do I received this error?
I never had this error, so I really don't know. All I can suggest is to perform a search in Google on this error and you might find your answer.
Lastly, is there a way to set maximum number of downloads?
I'm not a Transmission export, but I don't think so. You can check Transmission parameters over here as a confirmation: https://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/ConfigurationParameters
You can always play with it's settings by modifying /opt/etc/transmission/settings.json file. Just take in mind you are not working on i5/i7 machine. By default download speed is limited to 400 kb/s and peers to 50 (global) and 20 (local) which makes PlayOn!HD stable enough to play movies and download at 400 kb/s at the same time. Of course you can remove the limit and get download speeds of few mb/s, but your POHD will most likely crash after some time due to not enough resources. But still 400 kb/s is more than you can get with standard bittorent client on PlayOn!HD.
BTW: It was mentioned many times by many users, so just as a reminder: it's much better to use ext2/3 partition for downloaded files instead of NTFS and you'll notice while downloading bigger torrents (more than 4 GB).
And don't forget to pause torrents before shutting down PlayOn!HD, you normally don't turn off PC while doing something else, don't you?
