Probably a perfectly good system for Vortexbox ! But I suspect the external HD is one of the issues. USB 1.0. What can I do about that apart from getting a PC with 3TB hard drive? Figure out what the real bottleneck is. USB _might_ be one. But if the cache is stored on the main disk, then I

[slim] Force a Squeezebox to play a sound file immediately?

2016-10-13 Thread maf

I'm aware of that. I ran LMS on a super slow Dual Pentium just fine, but even that had 8GB. I can't imagine what that PC would have been like on 4. If the OP wants a faster LMS, I think a faster PC would be the first approach. LMS on my i5 is faster...not a by a mile but it's faster.
