Re: O2 Vice MPEG2 discovery

I sadly don't have anything to offer to this thread, and my O2 is currently in a non-functional state, but I love that this is happening :)

Re: Installed SSD w/ ARS-2160H in my Octane! (was: New ARS-2160H + SSD on the way...)

It's true than an O2 doesn't hold a candle performance-wise to an Octane (especially my 550mhz r14k...though I still have dreams of a dual 600mhz) but let's be honest here, NONE of these machines really hold a candle performance-wise to a modern machine so that's not why I'm here. After playing with...

Re: Building a retro PC x586

If your'e going to go for an actual oldschool PC (with DOS?) it I HAVE to suggest:

Re: Any experience with IPS SOG-capable displays ?

I have a nice Asus PB278Q (2560x1440 native) running at 1900x1200 on my Octane right now (V8, so can't do 1080p...grrrr) The bars on the sides kinda suck but hey it's a nice screen and I was SICK of of running weird resolutions because of the stupid vpro incapabilities to use normal screens at lower...

Re: New ARS-2160H + SSD on the way...

Finally got around to doing this! I used the instructions here: http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/Clone_System_Disk Turns out I had 3 17.3gb drives in there, not 3 9s but oh well, it's all smaller than the 120gb in there now! Disabled the stripe I had between two drives and took them out. Things to note:...

Installed SSD w/ ARS-2160H in my Octane! (was: New ARS-2160H + SSD on the way...)

Can't wait they should be here next week :) Right now I have 3 9-gig drives a 9 gig system drive and 18gig striped for data. Both will be replaced by a 120GB SSD. Going to then clone the 9gig system drive to the SSD and copy the rest over then boom, a ton more space AND 3 less drives spinning and ma...

Re: Octane fan question

Don't have my Octane in front of me... are those the only 2 fans in the machine?
Meaning if I got some quiet fans for those, plus an SSD for a drive, I could have a nearly silent Octane?

Octane 2, but with MXE?
Can you post an hinv? I may be interested depending on shipping costs to zip 94530 (UPS since I use a ups store for picking up my hardware purchases)

Let me know!

Re: New package: Updated MPlayer

This is exciting, actually having an up-to-date mplayer here...
Now that I'm a VPro user I may have a chance to optimize the vpro path (when I previously worked on the sgi vo for mplayer, I had only an O2... all other platform paths were implemented by reading docs and hoping things worked...)
