On-screen orbiter performance on an eee Box
« on: April 12, 2009, 06:53:05 pm »
I know several people here have setup an M/D using an eee box.  I recently picked one up and am in the process of setting it up.  I'm using a B202 with UI2 w/ masking running 810 Alpha2.  Videos seem to play fine so far (I'm still figuring out the interface, like how to pause/resume or set subtitles, etc but that's irrelevant here).  My problem is that browsing media (the whole box rotation animation) is unbearably slow.  Are other eee box owners experiencing the same thing?  I couldn't find anyone mentioning it, so I'm hoping some people have it working smoothly.  Did you have to do anything to get it to run smoothly?  I noticed that OrbiterGL takes up >70% of the CPU the entire time while trying to flip the cube.

A follow-up question if no one has it working smoothly; can I disable the animation?  WebAdmin has an option for NoEffects which I'm hoping would turn that off.  But for the life of me, I can't find here in the forums, wiki, or Google what parameter that option sets.  I'm not running a diskless M/D (can't run a cable to that room) so I need to set it manually.
