    I have the same problem, each time I put the power on the Sheevaplug, my Squeezebox gets lost, doesn't connect anymore to the network by wifi, and I have to to power off and on the Squeezebox to fix it.
    This does not seem to be related to the distance of the plug to the Squeezebox or the router.
    Normally the plug is on of course and then it is not an issue, however when setting up the system and playing around with difference SD cards I had to power off the plug several times and each time my Squeezebox got lost.

    Here is another plug the "Guru" PlugServer... not the "Kuru" as mentioned above.

    Hi I wanted to ask about the performance of the web interface with the Sheevaplug. I have the same experience as above with iPeng that works very fast (once it loaded the data from the server at startup), but my experience with the web interface is quite slow. When I switch page in album view it can take about 10s to switch page! And this is not only at start of the web interface. The post I quote seems much more positive on the performance of the web interface. I run Squeezebox server from SD card and my music is on 2.5 inch external HD attached with USB.

    The only thing that is a bit slower is the Album view form the main menu. But if you switch of diplaying of covers in this section (lower left corner holds a small menu to do so) and/or lower the amount of albums listed at once you can lower the loadtimes significantly.

    Just got my SheevaPlug yesterday, have Debian Squeeze and Squeezebox up and running...

    Anyone else found accessing USB attached NTFS formatted drives over Samba a little slow?

    I can play 720p MKV files OK, but 1080p starts chopping up :/

    you are combining the two worst things for this setup

    ntfs is slow with linux. samba is slower then nfs. so you might switch your disk to fat32/vfat. Transfer speeds should then be fast enough with samba.

    That is sort of what I figured I reformatted one of my external drives with ext3 fs last night, since I don't want to deal with the limitations of FAT32. I'm still finding it slow copying a file over my gbe lan onto the drive, but I have a bunch more testing to do...

    OK, something is wrong here then. When I start out copying (using rsync) a single large file from a shared folder on my Windows desktop (also connected to GBE switch) it starts at 6-7MB/s then drops to 1MB/s (destination is ext3 formatted 3.5" USB disk)

    Edit: removed my Linksys USB hub and attached the USB drive directly to the Sheevaplug, and now I'm getting sustained 7MB/s, but still nowhere near what you are getting...

    But why would a USB hub cause that kind of slowdown? I bought a Linksys one figuring it would be decent quality...
