I noticed a strange difference of performance between my dvd drive and my hard
disk: the dvd drive plays AVI and DVD perfectly, the AVI stored in the hard disk
seems to be a little jerky also with -cache 8192.
After applying hdparm -X66 -d1 -u1 -m16 -c3 /dev/hda
my hd performance increased from:
Timing buffer-cache reads: 1120 MB in 2.00 seconds = 560.00 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 12 MB in 3.45 seconds = 3.48 MB/sec
Timing buffer-cache reads: 1108 MB in 2.00 seconds = 554.00 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 86 MB in 3.01 seconds = 28.57 MB/sec
With Xine everything is smooth.
Could you help?
Thanx in advance
I think it's in my basement...
Let me go upstairs and check.
