OpenPHT Embedded on Odroid C2 - SD Card type and capacity

kokosbanankokosbanan Members Posts: 1

I am about to collect my Odroid C2 tomorrow, and set it up with OpenPHT Embedded.
However I don't know what SD Card to get for it.
Capacity - the image itself is 125MB, is anything else stored or cached on the SD Card? Does the required space corelates with library size on server?
Speed - what is recommended here? Class 10, UHS-I, UHS-II, UHS 3 ?
Brand will be most likely SanDisk as I have good experience with those.

    Using that one in my Odroid C2 now and it works great. Class 10 UHS-I, UI

    I use the Sandisk Extreme, Sandisk Extreme Pro, Samsung EVO, and Samsung PRO, all with good results.

    @ahughes03 looks like a good choice as well. ^_^

    I just got my Odroid C2 and am running it with a Samsung Evo Plus. Speed is nearly indistinguishable from the eMMC card that I got to experiment with (good thing) :). Much easier to swap out too.

    Curious - will you be running wired or wifi with the Odroid?

    I run all of my client players (two Odroids and a Pi3) wired. I spent the better part of a weekend in my attic running my own ethernet lines and speaker wires throughout the house a few years back. Smartest thing I did to this house!

    Good call. I'm having a VERY hard time finding a compact wifi USB NUC that can keep up with direct stream 1080p for the odroid. You're lucky!

  • ahughes03ahughes03 Members, Plex Pass Posts: 140 Plex Pass

    Yeah, I can understand your frustration! Assuming an average bitrate for a 1080p stream is between 10-15mbps, an Odroid WiFi Module 4 should be capable of keeping up, provided your network is robust enough, etc (tested between 90-105 Mbps at 1.5m from router, which of course will drop off as you gain distance).

    I just want to pop in and say that there is an issue with large libraries where thumbnails are not being deleted periodically. This functionality is upstream and can cause SD cards to fill to capacity when deleting/moving/renewing large amounts of artwork. I recommend a 16GB card now instead of the 8GB.

    Want to add, I have tried several SD cards, and this one by far makes the Wetek Hub/OpenPHT very responsive;

    SANDISK 32GB MICRO SD EXTREME 90MB/S UHS-I U3

    This is a 90MB/s read and 60MB/s write speed.

    Costs around 20eur.
