You're poor antminer performance is likely either misinterpreted information or something incorrect with your rig set up.  In spite of the recent system reporting problems the site is reporting accepted shares correctly presently for me. You should be able to cross check this value with your mining software for verification. With ants I recommend using bfgminer (latest build) as I have recently read the others may be experiencing issues with the units.

More likely the figures on Slush are wrong. I've got an ave of 1131992 Mhash/s on mine, but the 104275.221 speed has changed by less than 2% for those last ten...and CG miner has had a steady 145-154 range for the last month, I've been paying attention and it's only once been what Slush reported. That's quite a large difference, and if it's widespread ...massive.

All 5 of my antminers are running and I'm getting 1.51 to 1.6 ghash/s out of them however the site only shows a little over 2ghash/s.  Is it issues with the site?

how long have you let it run? if you start in the middle of a block you will see a less than expected hash rate.

They've been running for 6 days.

Time to get a little more hashing power??

check out titanminer.com good product, good support and good price

I'm not spending that much money on mining equipment.  Not when I can look for a place to buy BTC and order an antminer S1 for 1.45 coins.

I rarely get the right rate on the site, 30% less some days. I'm hoping the ten block ave is right, but to be honest I'm about sick of all the issues lately on top of that..losing trust rapidly. 2/3 blocks a day isn't doing it for me at all either.

Just because something has been around a long time doesn't make it worth sticking with, we'd all be using pencils or typewriters based on that logic wouldn't we?

I can make more playing a game with no miner at all in Huntercoins than with an 150GH ASIC on Slush some days. That's nuts.

I've not been on this pool long however it was great when I started.  When the site works and updates like it should I think I do well on it.  I know issues with the site don't effect the pool.

Im using bfgminer.  Unless one or more of my U1's is about to fail I don't know what could be incorrect with my setup.  Other than when one of them just stopped working and I swapped it around with another one on a different port all 5 have been working for about 2 weeks now.

Why run them at 1.6GH/sec, if you can so easily overclock to about 2 GH/sec (see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=390929.0

Cheers

I just haven't done it yet.  I wanted to make sure they were working before I did.  Also with the way my USB hub is I can't put a fan over one of them.  With the one not having a fan over it I'm not sure if I should OC it or not.

This is the hub I'm using:

http://www.microcenter.com/product/360454/7-Port_USB_20_Hub_with_Power_Adapter

I can't put a fan on the two at the tip so I have it at the last port before them with 4 miners in front and then one at the tip. 

Because of the hub being like this I was thinking about buying a new hub or this:

http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Mobile-Fan-External-Cooling/dp/B00080G0BK/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1392894253&sr=8-3&keywords=usb+fan

However if I spend any more money in bitcoin I'm just going to buy the coins and us them to get an antminer S1.  Seems like doing it like that might be the cheapest rout instead of spending 1500-2200 on one.

The web page of the hub that you are using does not specify the current of the power adapter.  This is probably your limiting factor.  You may just try the software overclocking and see if it works for you.  In most cases it is possible to replace just the power adapter with one of a higher capacity (I have done that with very cheap 10 port hubs that came with 2A power adapters which tended to die very quickly). The fan could be powered from a free USB port on your PC, or from a separate 'USB charger' adapter.

In regard to Slush reporting of hashing power, it is correct if you are hashing steadily from or before the start of a block, but as it is based on the 'shares so far' tends to be quite inaccurate if there are any changes in your hashing.  You may try another pool such as BTC for a short period of time just to check out your hashing 'on the air' if that concerns you.  Both cgminer and bfgminer provide good reporting of the hashing rates, so you can rely on that.

The flip-side of that though, is that people buying hardware with BTC will wait until the value bounces back, so our existing GH/s will be less diluted until it does.  And only a few days ago, we had six blocks in 2 hours, so don't despair!

$595 at Bitstamp when I checked. If you go over to Mt Gox they throw in a chicken dinner with every coin purchased.

Not being a conspiracy theorist or general moaner nor am I a genius but I have noticed that as soon as the pool hash rate goes over 800TH the blocks get massively longer.
SO......
if some of you conspiracy theorists or serial moaners wouldn't mind doing a one,  to bring the hash rate below 800Th again I and my earnings would appreciate it....

Yeah, I think the database is breaking down when we grow. I know one of the last technical issues reported to us had mentioned breakdown when approaching 900th, and yes while it was being fixed our rounds were long, problem resolved and they sped up drastically.

You keep repeating this, without providing proof when asked several times ... well here is that message:
"Datacenter connectivity issues have caused short drop in the hashrate. The problem has been resolved and all stratum servers are now reachable. This all happened when 900 Th/s was within a reach. We will get there again with your support and participation in mining ;-)"

So where does it mention database? Where you read that the pool can't keep up with 900Th ?

Maybe it's a new weapon in the battle for bitcoin.

I really don't think its my hardware. From the way things look in bfgminer all is normal and the antminer U1's have the one light on and the one green light flashing like they have from day one.

I'm starting to think it might be time to cut my losses with this pool and move on. Just to make sure if it's or isn't my hardware I'm going to mine a different pool and see wwhat the stats show for it.

To all that complied with my request to do a one and bring the hash rate below 800TH - I Thank You - a 12hr block ended and another in 2 hrs - I shall now predict the next lottery result and the date of the second coming.

Lot's of theories floating around these days about the pool.

One fact is that the old timers (well if 6 months mining is an old timer) are lying low and by looks of the cluster performance the preponderance of evidence says those big rigs the "old timers" have are staying connected to the pool. Now if I were a betting man I'd put my money on the old timers knowing that things are ok in a general sense and problems will sort themselves out in time.

To look to the pool as the major fault when you still have training wheels on your rig is probably looking in the wrong place.
