    Movies on Sale...

    I doubt there's any relationship to MA. Kaleidescape doesn't really manage the price reductions, AFAIK. They are initiated by the content owners. I think the reasoning it two-fold: 1. COVID and revenue for the studios. Price reductions boost sales, essentially. 2. Sales promotions run pretty...

    Movies on Sale...

    Argh, I thought the Dads and Grads sale went through 6/24 and was planning to snag a few titles today, but noticed the prices reverted. Looking back at the email, the promo ran through 6/23... :cry:

    Zappati NAS and movie players

    It's a dead end path for your media library, for sure. I wish more people would see the light on this.

    Constant Terra Server Activity ?

    @MikeKobb can you comment? I find my Terra really never shuts off. It operates always on by design I believe. Though not sure about HD sleep/parking when no disc access is happening.

    US BR & 4K Releases for May & June 2020

    It did (now $15.99). The 4k version should come back as well AFAIK.

    What's a Terra server's maximum ingest speed?

    Oh duh, yeah, I forgot out that part of the connection. It would need a 10GB Ethernet to unlock more speed. Good call. What region/state are you in to get 900+? I tend to top out around 600 in Michigan.

    What's a Terra server's maximum ingest speed?

    If you want some conjecture on physical limits, the Terra is basically a multi-hard drive RAID array using striping, I believe. The write speed of a conventional spinning hard drive usually sits somewhere above 100MB/s. Writing to raid array writes multiple bits simultaneously for each drive...

    What's a Terra server's maximum ingest speed?

    Not sure on the theoretical. 800+ is the most I think we've seen reported.

    Movie Store - downloading multiple resolutions in an "all Encore+costar" environment

    I have my Strato/Terra and my Alto on two difference "systems" cause I'm only using the Alto for D2D now and I don't keep or want anything stored on it for playback.
