Firmware Version: 1.04Beta observations so far
« on: April 30, 2010, 07:04:29 AM »

the other string is getting very loaded down with a lot of back and forth bickering, so I'm going to start this thread in the hopes (probably futile) that we can stay focused on documenting and working the issues with the new code.

here goes...

1st thanks to D-Link for sending me the BETA patch within 15m of requesting, that was appreciated.

2nd i installed on all 3 of my units, so far so good

3rd I've noticed that the email function for system logs which did not used to work now works, which is an added benefit to the patch which i didn't expect

4th the interaction with ffp after fw upgrade has been changed. usually after doing a fw upgrade you have to reload ffp altogether. not so anymore, it's now in a weird hybrid state that sort of recognizes the config, but not really. the net result is that is has to be reloaded, but the behavior is different.

5th error messages in the syslog (Dlink syslog) are interesting, but not clear what they mean?
2010/04/28 08:59:14 fan can't rotate
2010/04/28 09:06:30 fan can't rotate

6th i'm now able to see my units from network and by name instead of having to type in IP address to get to them. this "broke" with the last fw release.

more to follow once i get them re funplugged and get access to the better syslog.

so far so good!!

here are a few more new items from proper syslog after getting ffp installed correctly again:

i also don't remember seeing this before, maybe it's a sign that a RAID6 box is coming (hint hint)!  :)

something seems amiss.

the new fw and logs are really chatty on 1 unit, the other 2 don't have this issue.

Are both fan's rotating when they are on? That error leads me to believe one of your fans has physically failed.

obviously i haven't looked yet.

another observation, this is only in the D-Link syslog, not the linux log (which apparently are different).

said differently, these messages are not in /var/log/messages at all

Yeah you should be able to see it not spinning pretty easily if one isn't.

I've installed the 1.04b firmware successfully. No such errors in the system log.

I'll give it a week or so to verify the problem is gone as it happened once every few days.

Guys,
I have 2 questions:
1. Is there list of new features in 1.04Beta?
2. Where to download this FW?

Currently there is no list of fixes, it is basically just to fix the Fan/lockup issue. To obtain this firmware you must send D-Link Multimedia (MOD) a private massage requesting the firmware.

looks like 1 fan is running and the other isn't. do i have to RMA the entire unit for this?

Yes. We don't send out parts =P.

As to eLGremlin's questions,

1. Right now it is the fan lockup issue and ADS fix.
2. The firmware is currently not publicly downloadable. If you want to use the beta you can send me a PM with your email address and serial # of your device.

Ever since 1.03 came out, my DNS-343 UPnP Media Server no longer recognizes or streams MP4's. I have almost 1.2TB of them on my server, and haven't been able to access them since "upgrading".

Does 1.04a fix this? If so, I'll PM you for the Firmware, if it's ok.

If not, when can I expect to get this functionality back? The docs and advertising clearly say the UPnP Media Server supports MPEG4, and this support was key to me buying the unit in the first place.

I can't go back to 1.02 because I populated the server with 2TB drives after 1.03 added support for them (that's why I upgraded - there was no notice that MP4 support had been Sony'd).

I phoned support but all they could suggest was to wait for 1.04... :\
