Odd network question

  • Ok got an odd question on network speeds.
    playing movies work fine no buffering issues.
    the problem is when I try to copy a movie or audio book to the drive running libreelec.
    it seems to be very slow, like an hour for a 2gb movie.
    but if I boot the machine to windows it takes a few minutes any thoughts?
    happens on a laptop and desktop

    You don't mention what hardware you're using, or if its ethernet or Wifi.

    If you running off of a SD card, then that is more than likely the issue, especially if it's not a class 10. Also if it's an older RPi (Model A/B) then you've only got a small CPU.

    Also if it's an RPi, then you're limited to 10/100 ethernet.

    As always - the more information you provide, the easier your resolution.

  • I'll get you hardware in a bit . been busy with other projects. should be tonight tho......

  • ok here are some specs...
    laptop is a asus x751ma
    8gb memory 320gb hard drive (libreelec is only thing installed on drive) (lot fasted booting this way than usb)
