I've had this miner running for almost 2 days, but the readouts never change. It has 2 AMD 6990's, they are showing almost maximum hashrates, but there are never any results.

I also wanted to know, how the phoenix miner knows which wallet to mine into?

If you could look at the screenshot and tell me if something might be wrong that would help.

Put the image on a remote server such as http://imgur.com/ and use the *[img] tag.

Thank You!

Here is the screen shot, also interesting is that the monitor on the right, only has complete stats for one card even though there are two 6990's.

Are you trying to mine in a pool or solo mine?  I would suggest a pool and you have to specify to phoenix the pool.

There is only about 1 block published every 10 minutes on average. It is a lottery to determine who processes them and gets the 50 BTC block reward (plus transaction fees).

I entered 600000 khash/s into the Old Bitcoin Generation Calculator. At the current difficulty, you can expect:
  • On average, you will process one block every 47 days (assuming no difficulty increases)
  • 50% probability of processing a block within 32 days.
  • 95% probability of processing a block within 140 days.

The New Bitcion Mining Calculator assumes you are mining as part of a pool. A mining pool splits the 50 BTC block reward among participants.

If it was me, I would run solo anyway. Your 95% probability is less than a year, so I think you can expect to process a block within a year, even with difficulty increases. Of course, I plan on solo mining (in a limited way) even with an expected 50,000 days before processing a transaction. Smiley

He's got 2 6990's, so he's mining at double that rate (so, halve those estimates).

Everything on that screen shows your machine is working properly; you just haven't found a coin yet. Your choices are to (a) wait patiently, and be really excited when 50 BTC shows up in the next few weeks -- nothing to sniff at in today's market! -- or (b) modify the mining scripts to point at one of the many mining pools, so that you can at least see money accumulating on a daily basis.

Ok, thanks a lot. Makes me feel good at least it seems to be working right.

What about how to know which wallet it is mining into? This is a rig that came completely pre-configured. It just boots up and goes.

How would I change which wallet it mines into?

difficulty will be going up shortly.

your 1.3 Gh/sec at (the currently estimated) difficulty of 827,000 will generate a block (50 BTC) in about 31 days, average.  of course, by the time 31 days has passed, difficulty will have gone up once again - or rather twice.

don't be a sap.  join a pool.

Exactly.  Realistically you are looking at probably several months before you get a block at that rate.  A pool will give give you instant results starting today and will trickle in bitcoins over the same period allowing you to use them.

Usually you set your payout address on the pool's website - except for Eligius's pool, I think you directly set your username to the payout address there.

Ok, thank you very much. 

 Where would i configure the wallet if i am mining solo? 

also  In the screen shot <img src="http://i.imgur.com/gRmP9.png" alt="" title="Hosted by imgur.com" />

If there is no block being processed right now and I am waiting to get one, then why are the GPU's still hashing at full load? What are they doing If i am still waiting for a block?

This post will help you:

Also the share system is for Pools. Pools distribute work and receive work done on based on shares and distributes Bitcoins based on them. Since you are mining solo you don't upload shares you are just basically mining until you find a Block which is 50 Bitcoins. You can not get smaller increments if you don't pool mine.

That is great info thank you. It sounds like the bitcoin client and the phoenix miner are integrated. That post doesnt specifically say about wallet configuration.

Am I safe to assume that the phoenix miner , deposits mined coins into the currently configured wallet address in the "Your Bitcoin Address:" field inside the bitcoin client?

Yes, you don't setup directly towards the wallet address. The mining client sends the found the 50 Bitcoins to localhost:8332 which is the bitcoin -server client. Then it becomes automatically associated with your wallet.

Just make sure you have either bitcoind.exe open or bitcoin.exe -server. And the username associated with both the bitcoin client and miner are the same (doesnt matter what you make it, just has to be the same).
