Got my first U1 in mail today!  Thanks for the fast shipping. 

Got it up and running in about 10 minutes

Now just need to get my red furys to run along side the ant  in the same instance of cgminer.  anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

vouch iluvpcs seems above board, order is in the mail =)

About the hubs, I always liked mondohubs for my FPGA farms, I don't see a reason they wouldn't work here

50$ for 28 powered ports, I don't think you can beat the price

layout is pretty stupid but oh well

That's the ugliest, but yet coolest, looking USB hub I've seen in ages.  Specs here: www.mondohub.com/hub_overview.php

only thing I'd caution, it looks like its powered with 4 AMPS at 5V, that is about 20 watts, or 9-10 of the AntMiner devices, any more and it won't be able to power them.

Also - Everything ordered up til about 4 PM EST today shipped today

Would you be able to hot wire the hub  to the 5v rail on  a psu ?    I was able to do that with a couple cheap ebay 10 port hubs  to fill em up with AM sticks.

Maybe I just resold it and got some nicer ones.

If you use the modified cgminer source for these, you can enable the bitfurys and it works.  Mostly.  I was doing that for awhile, but it was about 20-40% slower, so I switched back to regular bfgminer.  At this point, I'm just going to wait until antminer support is merged into the main fork.

Picked up 14 - paid and sent over signed message.  Seller is very patience and willing to answer questions - seems like a good guy.  If you're sitting on the fence, go ahead and pull the trigger

To Op I posted a trust for you.  I am loving these sticks!

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Sorry, I was supposed to reply days ago to this request.

Looking at USPS we can do up to 6 units for .025 in the small box, delivery stated as 6 - 10 business days per the website.
For up to 100 units, .06 in the medium box (but maxium insurance of $675), delivery in 6 - 10 business days per the website.

For their 3-5 Day express mailing, with up to $5000 insurance in medium box (100 units will fit, maybe a bit more) .11 BTC

The miner I bought arrived today.  It is *CUTE*.  It will make a nice addition to the collection.  It was a pleasure doing business with iluvpcs and positive trust was left.

The windows binary works just fine once the USB driver is installed.  Too bad for me I don't normally run a miner on the few windows machines I own.  I prefer to keep my miners on a raspberry pi.

Now for the bad news, and none of it has anything at all to do with the group buy.  What I received is exactly what is represented in this group buy.

First of all, the linux binary listed above does not run on any of my machines.

So, I pull the source code for the modified version of cgminer from https://github.com/bitmaintech/cgminer and the fun begins.

The first issue I find is a pretty big one.  The AntMiner U1 USB stick uses the same usb signature as an erupter.  This does not need to be an issue but as it is right now, it is not possible to compile cgminer to support BOTH an AntMiner U1 USB and and a block erupter usb with the same instance of cgminer.  Older versions of cgminer and bfgminer think it is a block erupter usb and does weird things with it.

Then, once configuring for the "bmsc" driver I run into some rather nasty compiler warnings.  one is true where the code copies 5 bytes into a 4 byte storage which immediately crashes the program.  The crash was disguised in a code update between yesterday and today as the device is no longer addressed so the broken code is never executed.  I will spend a bit more time playing with this later but right now it appears to be a windows only solution.

Ok, going back to the windows binary only release, the device is reported as "AMU", same as a block erupter USB.  Not nice.  It should have its own name.  Furthermore the stock "miner.php" script does not enumerate the AntMiner sticks.

So ... it is only a matter of software.  The stick I have is hashing at 1.55 Gh/s on windows xp running stock.  Now to overclock the sucka..

I'm up and running on Linux.  Also using the modified cgminer from bitmaintech.  Thanks for posting your patch to GitHub.

https://github.com/bitmaintech/cgminer/pull/1

It compiles and runs perfectly.  I made the same fix independently before finding your pull request Smiley

There's lots of good documentation from AntMiner here:

https://github.com/AntMiner/AntGen1

The cgminer command line I'm using is:

Code:
./cgminer --bmsc-options 115200:20 --bmsc-freq 0781 -u P2Pool -p P2Pool -o stratum+tcp://localhost:9332/ -D

If you aren't using P2Pool Sad replace username, password, and pool URL with whatever your other pool requires, of course.

All my AntMiner USB devices autodetected cleanly, and I'm getting a clean 1.5 GH/s from each miner.
