I am new to using the Dreamcatcher… having only recently purchased the v3.03 hardware, and am running the new v5.5 software.
I am wondering what the general accepted rule for up-time is on this combination? I don’t think I’ve exceeded 48 hrs up-time without experiencing a lockup requiring a reboot. I don’t know if I should start troubleshooting my power supply, re-flash the SD, or if this is expected performance. I don’t see it discussed much… except in relative terms in the forums to the older hardware, and since I haven’t run the older versions of hw/sw, I am a little unsure how to interpret the up-time performance I’m seeing.
My USB power supply has the correct name-plate ratings (2.1A) but the output is a tad low (like 4.9V). I could try a lab supply pushed up to 5.1V if the hardware is that sensitive to low voltage. I have poked around on the SD card, trying to figure out what I thought were stuck downloads (but came to read and find out it’s repeated files sent over and over for redundancy) but the software never had immediate issues with anything I did on the SD card (like deleting a “stuck” file or zindex). News and Wikipedia entries are filling up properly it appears.
Side question hopefully not to derail the topic, when do copies to the backup SD occur? I only notice files being copied over after I do a reboot.
Thanks for any data-points or suggestions,
