I have managed to combine Fuse and Puppy to get a slow working file system that just about works with uPnP media servers.
The Good Points about the program:
- > Continuously opens and closes the USB port, to stop it hanging & frees it up to use for another programs, like the TFTP program.
> Buffers 1 MiB of data for 2 differently named files. This is good compatibility for use with the uPnP library. Caches for 5 mins.
> It creates a readonly directory called "Recordings". displays the ".rec" files as ".ts" and ignores the first 4KiB of the file header.
> When the Toppy is off. The "Recordings" folder remains. So Media Servers like MediaTomb and uShare do not remove the folder from its list / database.
> Can use with Samba / Windows File Sharing, it buffers the last directory list for 10 seconds. To help speedup the time it takes to display in Windows.
- UK Topfield 5800 pvrt (Recommended Firmware 5.13.65T)
Linksys NSLU2 (Running Linux SlugOS / BE 5.3)
Unbranded Android Tablet (Gingerbread v2.3.4)
I made ToppyFS = makes the file system, ToppyWeb = Basic Web Interface which provides serial port access, and ToppyApp = Android App like the web interface. And these programs require other taps/patches to work.
* warning, dont use the power button on the Web UI/App, unless you have the exact same pvr/firmware * It could do some damage.
I thought I would post it here, because I like this web site. So if you have the same setup... Feel free to give it ago...
