Re: working ibm seagate drives non working in IRIX

Sorry, looks like I only have firmware for Seagate 10k SCSI drives, not 15k SCSI drives. There's not much more I can offer, except to say that I've run into this problem before as well, and just used a different drive... Fortunately, SCSI drives of that capacity are rather cheap, so you should be a...

Re: working ibm seagate drives non working in IRIX

fantastic, thanks a lot. let me check, I think it's a ST336752LW, but it could be a ST336732LW. I'll check tomorrow, the label is an IBM X series.

anyone ever gotten avcapture to work, and for bonus, on a o2

I get
"cannot set path packing: VL: bad value passed as parameter"
apparently the source for avcapture is on one of the dev disks, so I'll try looking at it in the near future.

working ibm seagate drives non working in IRIX

I've run seatools on these, they passed, they worked in windows. this happened before and after I formatted them with seatools. ioconfig : scsi_ctlr_walk_fn : cannot open the file: /hw/node/io/pci/2/scsi_ctlr/1/target/1/lun/0/disk/volume/char : I / O error dksc1s1vol : no sense : (asc=0x0, asa=0x0) ...

Re: uncomp full NTSC O2 capture problems

ok, I've got 50+ GB of hdd space, hopefully more friday. I'll look into working with avcapture. I was getting minimal framedropping with no audio, and xvm (with abort on framedrop it ran for almost a minute). what advice doe people have on recording uncompressed? 720x486? the default is 640x480. sho...

Re: Altix NUMA systems apparently moving to x86

ummm, didn't the 3.16GHz beat the itanium2 in both? not as well as I predicted. also, how many cores, and sockets.

Re: uncomp full NTSC O2 capture problems

it's about 17.5 megabytes a second. the Ultra wide SCSI-2 that the O2 uses is 16 bit, 20MHz iirc, I'm sure it's 40MB/s. With no audio, or audio at 22KHz 8 bit mono no frames dropped, 32KHz 8bit stereo I think frames started dropping >.<. looks like 250MHz is a stretch. I can record the audio seperat...

Re: uncomp full NTSC O2 capture problems

ok, after further investigation, the O2 works pretty fantastically at capturing uncompressed video. it's more then happy to capture full resolution NTSC to your heart's content. not only that, it'll encode that captured uncompressed video to mjpeg at just about realtime. what it absolutely refused u...

Re: uncomp full NTSC O2 capture problems

this isn't a dropped frame here or there, this one step away from a slideshow.

I'm thinking about doing a dd benchmark piped into time to check bandwidth, lemme start up the O2 and see what error I was getting from avcapture.

Re: Altix 350 Value.

they're reliable, server class hardware. if you're looking for something reliable, it's worth about as much as any other server class hardware that fits the bill. if you're looking for bang/buck, you're looking at something that does 8Gflops. that's about it. get a quad core 2 for about $400 or so, ...

Re: entry level server + storage

what's your budget? obviously you're looking at SATA. Seagate's announced 1.5Tb sata drives. in a standard 1U you can get 4 1-1.5Tb drives, so with 3 drives plus one spare you with raid 3,4, or 5 you can get about 2Tb, without the hotspare you can get 3TB-4.5TB redundant. $225 - http://www.supermicr...
