I’ve been running Miro on my Vista server for some time (Miro is a free, video podcast downloader that also does double duty as a tv torrent vacuum). I use it to grab backups for all of my favorite shows in case my Tivo dumps them before I can watch them or if there is a conflict that the two Tivos can’t manage to work out.
While working at home today, I decided to sift the couple hundred gigs of free podcast videos and TV shows that Miro has been downloading. Using the Vista side of the m1330, I found that the videos kept stuttering and would eventually stop transferring data altogether. I thought the Airport Extreme that dishes out wifi was having a bad day so I rebooted it. Unfortunately, that did not help. I switched over to Ubuntu to see if I could play my videos and after installing a codec pack, totem whipped through them without any issues.
I’m not sure what’s happening on the Vista side of the house, but the boys and girls in Redmond best be shippin’ SP1 soon or I’m going to forced to delete that partition and give it all over to Ubuntu.
