the headline says it all. I built my own home media server (with *arr tools on a dietpi). Only issue is that my external USB3.0 HDD (brand is intenso) goes super fast into sleeping mode and spins down. therefore whenever new data needs to be transfered for continous playback, it first needs wake up and that causes the 1-2 seconds micro buffers, which occur every few minutes.
thats obviously super annoying… is there anyway i can tell my HDD to not spin down so fast?
i tried already to increase the “idle spindown” in the dietpi_drive_manager. without success. its still spinning down and goes into deep sleep.
I have one HDD attached via docking station which spins down also very fast with the default APM level 127. I need to set it to 128 for it to stay awake until either hdparm spindown timeout or 10 minutes docking station internal timeout make it sleep again.
