1  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: GekkoScience NewPac / Terminus R606 (BM1387) Official Support Thread on: April 09, 2020, 10:25:11 PM
I am still getting the "(Too low difficulty)" message after trying several other pools.

Do i need to set the difficulty to something higher than the "Diff:14.7T" that is currently showing in the cgminer terminal?

"Too low difficulty" is a message from the pool to the miner indicating that the miner submitted a hash which did not meet the minimum threshold of acceptance set by the pool for that specific worker at that specific time.

Some pools constantly adjust the minimum setting to control your slice of their bandwidth while other pools just set a certain minimum(say 4081) to connect to the pool initially then allow your worker to adjust to a lower setting(like 416) that's appropriate for the device. This helps filter out CPU and GPU miners which just can't really cut it anymore.

The miner needs to restart "work" if the setting changes at the pool. Before it resets, it will continue to submit whatever is valid because at the time the hash calculated is considered valid by the miner. Remember your device may have 1,2,16 ASIC chips but each chip has hundreds of cores, each core is trying to solve and submit a hash of the same equation until its instructed something new. Your terminal can't show you everything, its more of a rolling summary, different levels of logging can be used to see a deeper analysis of events.

You removed the devices from the Laptop then reintroduced them. Verify the driver is working correctly in the "device" properties. Windows tends to ignore/forget what you told it and doesn't always tell you it changed its mind about your instructions and blocked/stopped something critical to your desires.

I'm not at the right computer for now but Amazon has some "Dive" lights, I think for underwater photography maybe, but they have USB chargers included. I only bring that up because they look pretty generic and readily available if your light has the same battery. It might give you some info on other Bodies available that you just didn't know were out there too. I'll try to add a picture later.

decide where to do a self moderated thread and put the link here, I'm gonna follow. You don't have to limit it to just the flashlight if you have other projects your willing to share about. I think more than a couple of us love seeing cool shit developed period.

I need a good light that is light touch to turn on. minimum 300lm. I want to use zip ties to mount it to my BB and pellet guns for night shots at my house. Streamlights have nice output but are hard to turn on and off, but USB rechargeable. This new light would go great with the hot hub of yours if its USB rechargeable.
6  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Now that usb sticks are being sold by sidehack here is a new usb hub thread. on: July 02, 2018, 01:51:44 AM
Those were 10 single chip Compacs running at default freq, the hub was powered by a 7amp brick that I had left over from the failed U3's disaster of Bitmain's. The fan had it's own small brick for power as did the RPi. The weakest link was the RPi which would randomly lockup and have to reboot.


Unfortunately, even though I had surge protectors on all of my gear, the building was struck by lightning while I was at work. The surge took out all five of my desktop PC's and monitors. The low voltage afterwards that my 2 S7-LN's, these 10 Compacs, and 10 2PACS were connected too caused the main 110v A/C line to melt and destroyed most of the gear including the ceiling fan in the room which turned out to be on the same circuit.

Please recommend best difficulty for S9 13.5 & 14.
Default is 128 - is this OK?
Thank You.

If you leave the default alone, the pool will auto adjust the difficulty just fine.

Slush pool sent out an e-mail earlier this week stating the pool servers would go under maintenance and the dbase as well. Usually the mining is not affected but you will see the wrong info at the website till everything has updated.

From what I remember Avalon promised to keep all of its software open sourced. The web site is confusing but they regularly submit pull requests to ck- thru GitHub.

Maybe you should try nwools multiminer. He's been away from the community for a little while but is back and said he's open to adding Gekko support if someone had the time to send some links and stuff. I'm in a remote location and internet is spotty at best for me till late February.

Not an orphaned payout, pools payout from the address that received block rewards, they will continue to mine at the same address for however long they want. Eventually that address is going to end up with an "orphaned block" reward. Unfortunately Blockchain.info doesn't filter/handle these transactions correctly and they aren't the only ones but that is the most common cause that triggers an address to show up with double spend warnings. 
12  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [150+ PH] SlushPool (slushpool.com); World's First Mining Pool on: January 14, 2018, 03:02:15 AM
Any time a pool uses an address that has been exposed to an orphan block, they report every freaking address the pool sends out to as possible double spend.

Seems NWools has rejoined the community, any chance you might get with him to help with GekkoScience driver files for BFGMiner? Maybe?

Welcome back to the fold. Hope you stick around for awhile. Sidehack could use a little of your help integrating with his Gekkoscience devices. CK took a little stab and we've been left using a fork ever since.

I don't think this device is going to work with peercoin. It's a Bitcoin Miner.

It means you should use the fork by VH instead, cgminer  doesn't have the drivers you need for your device.
look at page one here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1764803.0

chill out, its a DDOS attack on the user site. mining is a different server. might deny new connections under an attack but those connected would be unaffected.

you claim to have read the manual? There isn't one. The only version of software your going to get to work is VH's fork of CGMiner. Go back to page ONE and start reading again.
