View Full Version : Readynas duo 200
Hi guys, i have just ordered a netgear readynas duo 200, mainly to store data films etc. Also i was hoping i could run squeezecentre on this unit, if the answer is yes what version would be best and any help on installation would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Yes it will work. 7.3.3 version is the version to use so far. Installation procedure is here:
Yes, you can run Squeezecenter on it. No, it will not run well, it will be painfully slow. Issue is the CPU in it is no where near fast enough to give adequate performance for Squeezecenter.
Thanks guys, will arrive today, dissapointed about speed, when you say slow how will i notice the lack of speed, i only have maybe 120 albums as yet as mp3,s. Thanks.
overall the speed is slow. I had squeezecenter running on the ReadyNAS Duo and I ended up selling it and buying the QNAP TS-239 Pro. That one delivers the speed I was expecting. Having said that, check for yourself. If you simply want to play radio stations, and your mp3-ripped CDs and your playlist, you will be most likely fine with the ReadyNAS Duo.
Thanks, well it has arrived so i will drop a drive in and attempt to install the squeezecentre, i plan to serve my films to my popcorn hour and hoped it would be o.k with the music. I have several computers around the house if i need to rip or convert any file, i will let you know how i get on. Thanks for veryones help.
I run SqueezeBoxServer on ReadyNas Duo. The WebUI is slow but the controller is okay for me and faster with 7.4.1.
I rarely use internet radio and have ~8000 flac files in my library.
Thanks guys, Firstly i installed version 7.3 and had problems with slowness when operating remote, pressed volume button and it toook 20 seconds to execute command. I then followed instructions and installed 7.4.1 and it seems a lot better, i can live with the way it functions now. For the money hopefully it seems o.k, the plus side is it only takes 14 watts and can be set to turn off daily lets say betwwen 10.30pm and 6.45am i can also use it for other serving such as movies, i am not saying its perfect but it works.
Perhaps You and others with "underpowered" NAS'es will benefit from the next version of Squeezebox Server (SBS).
The move from MySQL to SQLite lower the load on the CPU.
I guess it's mainly done in order to comply with the new Touch, but i guess NAS-owners might be able to benefit as well. No Web interface though, but if you have a duet controller this should not be a showstopper.
That will be interesting, I am suprised there is not a purpose made unit for running squeezecentre on and storing music.
