I recently ordered the Lg N2B1 Backup Medie.

My plan was to store eveything on it, like movies, pictures, music ect. Therefrom acces it from my Ps3 via network.

Since i placed my order i found out that it is possible to have Download manager, and/ or a torrent clien on a disk..

Doen anyone know if that is possible on that product i refer to, and / or how to make it possible?


Thx in advance
Nickness

I had a quick look at the firmware, and it seems an adapted version of Debian Lenny. The only difference I saw was a changed runlevel system. Everything is started directly from /etc/init.d/rcS.

Torrent client is already there, transmission-daemon.

Sorry, dont wanna sound stupid :) But i did not really understand what you meant :)

Im from Denmark so mys understanding is therefor a bit bad, and also i aint no good technician..


But you say that it is possible?

The thing is, i just want something nice, and easy to operate with. Streaming movies, music ect with my ps3 and also use it as a torrent client?

Thx again :)

I can't say anything about the 'nice and easy'. I can only tell you that a torrent client is already available, and that it shouldn't be very hard (for an experienced Linux user) to install whatever he wants from the Debian repositories.

Hi - we got one of these devices recently (N2B1D) and have serial port access. I suppose we can have a look at seeing if telnet/other access is possible without opening the box. We did not post a serial port how-to yet but if you are interested you can see the pictures of the work on our facebook page:

I finally got around to documenting the serial port access to this device. Sorry it took so long!

You can find the document at the following URL in the main portal for the time being:

nice teardown, is that actually a PCI-e connection or just look like one? might be able to tell from any chips on the other side of the board.

and the other pads, usb headers?
