as the kernel finally supports standby or spin down or whatever mode
for my SATA disks, I have set up an aggressive scheme trying to spin
down disks whenever possible. The results: 2 degrees drop in case
temperature and a significantly lower noise. And a playout "problem"...
It takes about 5 secs to start stopped disks. It is not a problem
when starting a recording, but when recordings span over several disks
there will be an annoying pause when it is time to start reading from
The live-TV buffering works like a charm, though.
Is there a possibility to configure (for example) a 10s buffering for
playback while keeping the live-TV buffering as it is now?
