One thing that is helping me out is setting up a --failover-only with a second pool, a real pool that has long polling. That way cgminer gets the LP notification, and your litecoin daemon will benefit and switch to the new block faster than if you didn't have a second pool.

Thanks for the heads up on the --failover-only !

Should I solo-mine with 2 m/h or is that no enough for a variance?.  First day I got 5 blocks...that was 3 days ago.  I havent found a thing since.  I tested the miners by letting them fail-over to a pool and all seems well.  What is the percentage of finding a block after 3 day?  Has to be in the high 90s.

PS

It's totally random, I've mined with 2mh/s at the lower difficulties (~10) and sometimes I wouldn't see blocks for three days, and then suddenly i'd get 3, etc.  Just let it keep running and don't check it for a while, when you come back in a week or so you'll have lots of blocks.

the guaranteed payment of a PPS pool is nice.. but when I was on notroll.in I found 2900 ltc worth of blocks for 2580 of pps payments, which is kind of a bummer.

It seems that you started cgminer with wrong settings.

It says "452.8Mh/s" should be Kh/s or a few Mh/s I feel did you apply --scrypt to cgminer.exe before starting it ?

Yup. When you find one it will say accepted and A will be greater than 0

With 300khs it'll probably take a week or two to mine a block

Having problem:

LTC or BTC QT won't load, says it prog requires runtime to close in an odd way and won't open. Tried uninstalling, but the installer goes straight to that. Thoughts?

Are there any other clients I can try and mine with?

You could try mining with the daemon. Smiley
