Thom - thanks for your responses. 

In the WebAdmin for Freenas I've set the NIC to 1000Mbs, however don't know how I can see actual speed it's connecting to or running on my network.  Any admin tools you know of I can find out ?

0810 still having issues with studder on dvd playback.  My issues:

Core -

Mobo - M4A785-M
RAM - 8Gb
Disk - 500Gb
NIC - onboard disabled - 2 gb add-ins (brand new) TrendNet TE1000

NAS
FreeNas v0.7.2
Drives - 5 - WD Green 1Tb
RAID 0
RAM - 8Gb
NIC - onboard disabled - 1 gb add-in (brand new) TrendNet TE1000
Services - CIFS/SMB

MD (3)
Mobo - M4A785-M
RAM - 8Gb
NO HDD
NIC - onboard disabled - 1 gb add-in (brand new) TrendNet TE1000

Unmanaged Switch
TrendNet Gb 24 port

Wireless Router
Tenda - W307R (I really like this router)


Problem:  All media is stored on FreeNas server.  When playing media from any MD, I am experiencing severe LAG and Skips in any movie that plays.

Originally believed a number of problems.  Changed out all NIC's as stated above (this is the third time).  Purchased new Switch for the central connectivity.  Installed various versions of LMCE (0710 and various snapshots) - no change.  Connected Core and NAS directly with cross-over cable - no change.  No errors seen when I review logging on Core, but not sure I'm looking in the right area (in KDE open up logs - is that the correct area ? ).  Copied some DVD to Core and they play flawless (no issue, skipping, stuttering at all).  So this leads me back to my NAS having an issue, however have not seen any issues.  Looked in status for any errors but none found.

Questions:


a.  Is there additional logging I can enable in LMCE to drill deeper into this issue?
b.  Are there some recommendations for tunning LMCE community can offer that may help ?
c.  Other troubleshooting options that I may have not thought of that the community can offer ?

I've read easily hundreds of tuning thread on Net for freenas and have not seen any difference.  I have not been able to find any tuning info for LMCE, yet, but still looking.

Really like the idea of a NAS as it makes sense for this type of whole house application and to allow the house to save files and stream tunes (which I have yet to setup), hoping I can find an answer to this issue or any of you can direct/point me in the right direction.

Thanks
AJ

l3mce - I also have that Lenovo and went back to my MD and tested.  You are correct media buttons do not work, had to attach a separate keyboard to get functions for menu.

I've never built RAID in LMCE and don't know much about it.  You should get on the IRC chat channel for some assistance.  You can get alot of help there. #linuxmce,  freenode.net I think.

Freenas was dirt cheap to setup and I got a lot of disk space.  Went to a pc swapmeet and purchased an old Rack Mount case $20.00, there was a booth that was selling 500gb sata hdd for $15 ea, purchased 24 of them.  bought a cheap Mobo for $20, video card and NIC for $10 and BAM!!!  I had a nas server.  Put Freenas on a USB stick which it boots to and I'm running.  Looking for another RACK mount case to build another storage unit.

I have a freenas server with RAID 5.  Had no problem recognizing it once I got DHCP configured.

Great job LMCE Dev Team.

Core - Installed as described in the wiki.  Ran apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade, without changing sources list.  (all ran good, with a couple of 404 error, but nothing serious).

Ran the LMCE ICON - took about 3 hours to finish, but eventually did.  Rebooted the system, got AVwizard and setup finished.  Had to configure DHCP IP Range was the only change I made.

Ran the diskless MD script, libdvdcss on Core to enable cd/dvd play - no problems

MD1 configured nicely - ran libdvdcss, upgraded HULU in KDE.  (dvi=720p, sound = spdif)  this system is working like a charm.  Had to ensure that I selected the correct resolution, where in 0710 it was already set to 60hz, in 0810 if you don't have a local monitor attached, you'll need to arrow over and down arrow once to ensure the setting.

MD2 configured nicely - where this system is a s-vidoe configuration, it's always been difficult to setup, was a breeze.

All-in-All a great piece of work and I wanted to share my appreciation to those that have worked their butts off to get it to this point.

I've set up a separate Freenas server with RAID for dvd, pic's and music.  My LMCE Core only has 1 drive for the system.  If you are configuing hybrid I understand.

Have you installed 0710 so that you can get the look and feel of the system ?  If not I would do that first ?  I've stayed away from ATI, just too much config issues.

Justdeb - don't think any of these fixes/work-arounds have been incorporated as I am re-installing now and getting the same with the latest snapshot 23625.  Still working on it.

Installation issues / Snapshot 23559 taking more than 5 hours to install

KDE installed in a matter of 30 mins or so.  After I did the update and upgrade, then ran the LMCE ICON, install has been going for over 5 hours and counting, is that normal ?
