TS1368 when downloading large files such as videos of television season do you need to turn off autolock to prevent download from halting

when downloading large files such as videos of a television season do you need to turn off autolock to prevent download from halting? And if so, if the download will take a significant amount of time (not sure how much offhand) how do you prevent burn in from prolonged screen image?

Among the alternatives not mentioned... Using a TiVo DVR, rather than the X1; a Roamio Plus or Pro would solve both the concern over the quality of the DVR, as well as providing the MoCA bridge capability the poster so desperately wanted the X1 DVR to provide. (Although the TiVo's support only MoCA 1.1.) Just get a third-party MoCA adapter for the distant location. Why the hang-up on having a device provided by Comcast? This seems especially ironic given the opinions expressed regarding payments over time to Comcast. If a MoCA 2.0 bridge was the requirement, they don't exist outside providers. So couldn't the poster have simply requested a replacement XB3 from the local office and configured it down to only providing MoCA bridging -- and perhaps as a wireless access point? Comcast would bill him the monthly rate for the extra device, but such is the state of MoCA 2.0. Much of the OP sounds like frustration over devices providing capabilities the poster *thinks* they should have.

    Why is my iphone 4s asking for my credit card details when trying to download a 'free' torch App? newby!

    Because many free apps have in-app purchases.  And it's also a way for iTunes to verify you're an adult.
    You can log into iTunes on your computer and select your payment options to be 'None'.

  • Can I download large files a bit at a time

    I'm on dialup and I'm wondering if it is possible to download large files, such as security updates, in small bits like you can do from a P2P network.
    Can I adjust a preference, download a utility, buy some additional software?
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
    G5 iSight   Mac OS X (10.4.2)  

    Thanks Niel for the link. I downloaded that program, and then, knowing what to look for, located a few others as well.
    I'm sure they all will allow me to download large files, but how do I get these programs to press the button that says "Download". I go to the page that has the "Download" button, copy the web address for that page, paste it into the program, tell it to download, but of course all it does is copy the page.
    I know there must be an easy way to do it, but after a few hours of trying I can't fathom it.
    How do you find the web address of the actual file?

  • To avoid roaming charges when traveling internationally, do i put my iphone on airplane mode only or do i also need to turn off data and voice roaming

    I have an iphone 4 with sprint which can't take a sim card.  To avoid roaming charges while traveling internationally, do i put my phone on airplane mode.
    I read you need to turn off cellular and voice data roaming as well but when I turn on airplane mode, it seems like roaming is automatically turned off.
    Is this true?

    Turning on Airplane Mode will prevent the phone from getting roaming charges as it cant connect to a cell tower.
    P.S you can have WiFi on and still be in Airplan Mode. Just turn Airplane Mode on first, then turn the WiFi on

  • IMac disconnects when downloading large files

    The internet on my iMac is a wired connection, hooked up through my router. It works perfectly fine and never disconnects while I'm browsing, playing games, or anything like that. When I download small files, things are still fine. Whenever I download something that takes more than a few minutes, my connection will shut itself off like clockwork. It then takes a minute or two to kick back in and resume, but then after another few minutes it will disconnect itself again. It isn't my ISP, since my laptop (Windows 7) downloads fine on this same network. My iPhone and iPad also have no problem downloading large files on this network either. What could be causing this strange issue with my iMac?

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of this exercise is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login. Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. The instructions provided by Apple are as follows:
    Be sure your Mac is shut down.
    Press the power button.
    Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone, but not before the tone.
    Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including wireless networking on certain Macs.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem(s)?
    After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • When downloading large files thay stop at approx 7 Mb.

    When I download large files they stop at approx 7 Mb. They can be paused and restarted. They then carry on and will then stop at other random sizes. Repeating the pause restart enables the download to complete.
    What can be done to fix this?
    Cheers
    Paul

    I think I may have solved this. I needed to turn off RFC1323, by adding it to sysctl.conf.
    If sysctl.conf doesn't exist in /etc then you just create it, use vi or pico.
    search the discussion forums here for references to speedguide.net and make sure you see something like the following...
    Default TCP Receive Window (RWIN) = 65535
    RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits
    Unscaled TCP Receive Window = 65535

  • Clients Time-Out When Retrieving Large Files  From Our PureFTPd Server

    Hi, not sure if this is the right place to get help, but didn't know where else to look. And let me begin by saying I'm not a server admin by trade, but that is the role I've fell into at a design firm. So please bear with my lack of knowledge on some of the more technical details.
    We have OS X Server 10.4.11 running here with PureFTPd installed and managed through PureFTPd Manager application. It has been fairly reliable for us for the last 2-3 years once the initial setup craziness was complete.
    But lately we've had 2 clients say that they've had difficulty downloading larger files from us. They get a time-out or error message on their end. They are most likely using Windows Explorer on a PC to do the transfer, which has always been the easiest method for our clients.
    One client had no problem getting files up to 14MB or so. But when trying to download a certain file that was about 80MB, it would not work. I tried different things here, and she tried multiple times, but no luck. I tried zipping the file to see if that would help, but no luck.
    Then another client had a similar problem today with a file that was only 25MB.
    We don't send large files very often, so I'm not sure if this is a recent thing or not. It seems like we've received some large files recently though.
    In PureFTPd manager, I usually leave all of the fields in the Transfers tab empty for all users. I didn't see anywhere else that would seem to impart a file-size limitation.
    • Any ideas at all?
    • If not, any other forums that I could search for help on? It looks like the developers site for PureFTPd Manager hasn't been updated in a year or two.
    Thanks in advance!

    Some years back I had trouble at a customer that had a ADSL using PPPoE connection to their ISP.
    Their router/modem (Speedtouch) couldn't cope with the LAN MTU when they sent files out so I had to lower it on their computers (running Panther?) ethernet interface from 1500 to 1492 (PPPoE overhead was 8 byte). The communication used to stall at about 25MB but the MTU change helped resolving that.
    My guess is that the router had to fragment (split in two) all outgoing packets it recived from the LAN computers and it just couldn't cope after a while.
    In your case it can be other network related things too like maybe needing traffic prioritizing, if receiving a lot of traffic from Internet and trying to send at the same time.

  • Airport Extreme with Ubee D3.0 - cannot download large files.

    Hello all Macoids!
    Here is my issue...
    I am on Charter Cable Network using Charter's provided modem Ubee D3.0 It is connected to an AirPort Extreme "main base" vie ethernet cable. That AirPort Extreme that I call "main base" distributes the WiFi throughout the apartment to other AirPort devices. And it all works.
    However...
    I cannot download large files on Wi-Fi using iMac or even while connected to the AirPort Extreme main base via ethernet cable on my MacBook. What is interesting that inside of iTunes I can download large files with TV shows episodes just fine, but the update to an iPhone or an iPad will stop after 10 or 100 megs with error message "Unknown Error 9006" occurred. Interestingly enough, if I will drag the Download window in iTunes around while it is downloading 1.4 gig iOS update file for iPhone 5 - it will complete fine. So it looks like Airport main base (or whichever Mac is used) looses the connection to a download server or Ubee D3.0 modem, unless I constantly "renew" it by dragging the Download window around.
    That is quite annoying to do for 15-20 minutes… Same happens on MacBook Pro that is actually connected to an AirPort Extreme main base via ethernet cable...
    Macbook running OS 10.9
    iMac running OS 10.8.5
    Same thing.
    I would've call Charter but knowing well they have usually no idea what is up I thought to ask here if anyone has the same problem….?
    Any smart suggestions not based on experience?
    Anything appreciated very much!

    I ended up reformatting with HFS and the problem was solved, sort of.  The AEBS can now handle large files.  But that allowed me to expose yet another serious firmware bug (version 7.6.1), namely that if you use "account" style fileshares, the fileshares are not reliably accessible anymore, and frequent rebooting of the AEBS is needed to bring them back.  A quick test for whether this has happened is just attempt at ten-minute intervals to create a file on a read-write share.  You'll find it can work for up to a few hours, but at some point it will fail.  Makes the AEBS essentially unusable for account-based fileshares.  I
    With firmware 7.5, I'd noticed a variation of this problem, which was that editing the fileshare permissions on the AEBS resulted sometimes in a corruption of the fileshare rights.  When this happened, you needed to reinitialize the AEBS completely.  So I hoped that in 7.6 they fixed the probems.  They fixed that one but added the new one.
    For now, the workaround seems to be using a device-based password for the fileshares, and forgetting about account-based shares.  The huge problem presented by this approach is that all users have full access, so I await Apple's next attempt at stable firmware with great anticipation.  If only they had a beta test program, other than their users, we would not be in this near-constant state of working around serious bugs.

  • Can't watch videos it says I need to download Adobe, when I attempt it says I may need to turn off my antivirus.  How can I do this?

    For the last few days I have not been allowed to watch anything that may have a video.  It says I need an update version of Adobe and that I may need to turn off my antivirus.  Not sure how to do this.

    Download the latest adobe flash player plugin only from the adobe download site.  When you install it it installs its plugin and a Flash Player system preference.  That Flash Player system preference has an option (Advanced tab) to auto check for updates.  If enabled it will put up a dialog telling you a new update is available when adobe relaases it.  I never have that enabled so I don't know how the dialog is worded and that it actually says anything about turning off any AV stuff. 
    Do you even have any AV software running?
    You can always just download it again and reinstall to make sure you have the latest version.

  • Unable to download large files via my Mobile Network
