Thanks for working on this. The effort is appreciated, and hopefully rewarding to you.

Re: Radeon RX cards on X1000
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I have nothing constructive to add to the discussion, as I'm still sporting R9 270 cards in my two X1000s. But I do want to thank you all for continuing to test and push ahead with the RX cards and drivers and patches and CFE workarounds. We may get there yet, with full speed, full resolution video and no hangups, and so at least one of my machines may get a new graphics card and some new capability to make me smile.

Ah, OK. So mainly looks. I like the old-fart looks so I'm good there. Haha.

I continue to enjoy the OS4 port of DOpus5 and have not yet tried Filer. Are you saying it's much more modern than DOpus5? Maybe I will give it a look.

@geennaam

Good to see you in action. Know what you mean about going long stretches without powering up. Happens with me too. I'm in a fairly active phase at the moment, but of course this is not super important to too many people because I'm no programmer. Haha. But good to see you working on making things "juicy," as Raziel said above.

@walkero and friends

Thanks for your initiative and drive to work on this project. This sort of thing gets an old Amigan excited.

Re: Old AmigaOS 4 versions and new software

I think in our little community it is reasonable to develop for and state that an application will run on a base of AmigaOS 4.1 Update 2. I don’t see the point of running an older version of the OS on this particular platform.

Excellent. The new version is working fine on my X1000.

Thanks, guys. I had a great time on this trip. It was so very pleasant to see old friends again and to make new ones, and to meet in person for the first time friends from online. Am feeling good Amiga vibes again thanks to my amigos.

Had a great time at the show this year. Unfortunately, I am unable to afford to attend every time, but hopefully I will return at some point. :)

I am not certain if Google Photos is very friendly to Amiga browsers. Unfortunately, I have lost my previous web domain where I hosted pictures. Am open to suggestions for some place where I can host these images for free that might be more accessible with Odyssey, iBrowse, etc.

Re: RadeonHD V.5 driver
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I had just enough time before leaving the house today to install the new RadeonHD 5 driver and also Enhancer 2.2 (well, parts of it) on one of my X1000s. I had not ever upgraded Enhancer to the 2.x level but seems video acceleration is desirable.

From what I'm reading in this thread I should not be expecting much of anything in the way of improved video playback just yet, which would be my main desire. I have Emotion and MPlayer but not yet the new version of DVPlayer. I will try the various tweaks you guys have suggested in player settings but will surely achieve the same results. Over the years I have been able to play 720p videos with some reliability but 1080p or better has been a bridge too far.

Probably I should have bought an X5000 instead of a second X1000 motherboard back in 2015, but I was thinking of it as a backup bit of hardware for a machine I loved. Heh. Anyway, still mucking about on the X1000 trying to have some fun and make the most of it.

I have two X1000s with R9 270 graphics cards and for years have desired the ability to play 1080p videos smoothly. Are we ever going to get there on this machine? This ability is something I would pay for. Are we there yet?

Re: X1000 and X5000 in Fractal Cases

@rjd324

X5000 has a little faster clock speed and faster memory. X5000 also has fewer ports and slots.

X1000 has a little slower clock speed and slower memory, but it has Altivec. X1000 also has more ports and slots.

Advantages and disadvantages for each. I have two X1000s but probably better to have one of each.

I have two X1000s and no beta software, so I don't have many options. Might buy an OS release with NGFS one day, if there are anymore of those. Heh.

Hmmm. I am sure I am using an SSD with SFS partitions in one of my X1000s. Am I asking for trouble?

Not sure about my HD sectors. The hard drives are in the 1TB to 2TB range. The SSD is 512GB.

Happy to test anything as well. I have two X1000s each with R9 270 cards. Have not yet purchased the newer DVPlayer and Enhancer versions, however. EDIT: I have purchased Emotion.

@Skateman

I had feelings about this when it was announced at Amiwest, so kept my purse close and closed. Awaiting the final word on capability and cost and requirements -- and reviews from other users.

I have held off buying the newest DVPlayer or the more recent Enhancer release(s) until all the pieces are out and the prices and capabilities of the software are clear. What I'm hoping to achieve is 1080p or better full speed video playback on an X1000, and preferably using the more than capable Southern Islands cards I already own. It sounds like, from what I'm reading, that progress has or is being made in this direction. Once it's clear what's being sold and for how much and that it's going to work as advertised, I'll be ready to buy into it. Of course, the price will have to fit my budget.

Watching with interest.
