I see a lot of people using CGminer - Why would one want to use CGminer instead of easy miner? is there a trend or preference emerging for one over the other.

Thanks

CGMiner is the probably the best miner software out there. And last I knew, mining in EasyMiner was not actually enabled.

Sorry for my ignorance - Just to verify  - you cannot actually mine with easyminer? That seems strange

Most people use EasyMiner to update the firmware of their Single, and then use CGMiner to mine.

is easyminer ever intended to mine if not the name is kind of ironic. ?

If you load it up, you will see that it has a mining function, but that has been disabled. This is because it is not fully developed, but the firmware updates were needed so it was released with mining functionality disabled. Even if it were enabled, you would be stuck with EMC as the pool.

Hi guys, I thought I'd take the opportunity to clarify where EasyMiner fits into our plans.  

EasyMiner is not meant to supplant or compete with existing miners.  It's development followed the need for user friendly firmware upgrades & performance evaluation of Butterfly Labs hardware.  Outside mining on a live pool (any pool) is a secondary function scheduled for upcoming release.  As a miner, it's primary purpose is to provide easy mining for people not familiar with a Linux terminal command environment.  Professional miners who've built systems depending on CGminer and the like will surely want to continue using those mature & feature rich platforms.  We'll continue to encourage software miner developers in their support of our hardware by giving their dev teams early hardware access and by promoting their software platforms to our customers.

As a side note, I think there's been some drama between BFGminer and CGminer software leads (Luke-Jr & Con) with regards to who is ahead of the pack in post GPU mining software support.  Some favoritism seems to have been attributed to us in this drama, so maybe it's worth clearing the air on that issue while we're on the topic.  Both are excellent developers (no kidding, they're Ace + coders).  Along the way, we've had an open door policy for any software developer who would like to log in and test their code live while using any of our hardware platforms.  Ufasoft, Bitminter, BFGminer and CGminer dev teams have all participated in this program.  We've probably had the longest working relationship with Luke-Jr as he was also one of our earliest customers and showed steel nerves by pre-ordering with Bitcoin while most of the forum community was busy convincing themselves we didn't exist.  He was also enormously helpful in adding the initial support for our products to CGminer.  Although we've enjoyed Luke's collaboration we've not been aware of any of the miner software politics that have led some to think we're pushing Luke over anyone else.  Until recently, he's simply been the only guy from the CGminer camp who showed up at all, and we thank him for that.  

So once again...  to clear the air, I'd like to repeat that we have an open door policy and welcome any developer.  You'll always have special and early access to the hardware.  All you have to do is ask.

I have been researching bitcoin for about 6 months and have decided to start mining. I am purchasing about 10 of your wonderful Singles (From other miners - I would buy it direct but the lead time is just too long and I want to get a little mining experience under my belt before ASIC hits) I plan to put on order for a like number of your new ASIC singles. I look forward to working with your gear. (ps i am still looking for 5 more singles if anyone is selling)

Q to anyone who's done the speed thingy... does it work on all devices at once? or does it just do one at a time?

It did a good job. Some went up in speed... some went down... but overall my U increased slightly and haven't had one instance of throttling in 4 days.

Has anyone tried Autotune on a Minirig? The OP states that it can be used with them however I don't see downloads available for different minirig firmwares.

All the firmwares are presumably included in the auto-tune package, just like they are for the singles auto-tune package. As for individual downloads, I guess they aren't available.

I just got my Single and was Diagnosing it when i noticed something wired with easyminer:


Is that a bug with EasyMiner or the Heat sensor? Any ideas what is going on here? I would guess that it is missing a dot or something.

This is very interesting (never seen it before). Can you please check what the decimal sign on your computer is? (Is it comma or dot, etc).
A very small possibility is Sensor Problem, but not likely since the number resembles 49.7 Degrees.  Please let us know how it goes.

Not sure how to check that but it should be comma since it is a german system. But yea i also think it means 49.7 Degrees.

Has anyone run this on Minirigs, or is that even an option at this stage? The website states Easy miner is compatible with Minirigs but does not list any faster firmwares available for them.

Look on the download page, there is an autotuning package available, but not individual firmwares. Make sure you download the second autotune package that is meant for minirigs.

I had one single that  after tuning, was reporting running at 4500 mh/s (I wish)  I had to down step it to a little slower speed and now it works fine. I have 11 singles running now and they are averaging about 9200 mh/s total. I heard a rumor that there is a new tuning package being released soon  - I look forward to trying it out
