theoldfarter: What happens to the current time setting? Does the 3600 hold its time & date when there is no power to it?
fatjulio: go into the trash and manually delete files, so it doesn't run itself into a corner with space.
Does anyone know if the other options, 1 week, 1 month etc are for how long to keep it in the trash, or in the main playback folder? If it's time in the trash, setting it to say, 1 week, should keep the disk reasonably free.
The MTV does a disc check after it's had a power loss, ie: powered down for real. During this time it will display the logo and for some of the time it's just blank on screen. Takes a few minutes all up.
As for examining the contents from a desktop Linux, similar story, if the volume is not validated then issuing fsck.jfs will clean it up. This will be the same command the MTV is using.
What I have noticed is some 'auto restarts' - power on the unit with the remote, shows the picture/sound briefly, then shows a screen that it's going to restart (with an OK, but doesn't give you the chance to press OK) and then powers off and restarts. Does this suggest disk problems, or the 'running into the corner' issue somebody was suggesting earlier?
Jimmy22: i have my unit on a timer , it shuts off from 130am till 630am to save the 25w it draws for nothing even while "off" but i guess im giving it a reset and cool off period too. i switched off live pause a long while back and have overlap's set at 2mins so it falls in the cache without locking itself up over a conflict.
