    DN 2820 Power usage measurement

    LesMoss

      I plugged my NUC into a killawatt meter to see power usage running Win7 media center. It idles at 5W and uses 8-9 when displaying 1080 HD video streaming from my HD Homerun cable tuner.

       

      Never gets more than warm and the video quality is flawless. I am impressed.

       

      I used a wired Ethernet connection. The 7260 wireless could not keep up and of course the bluetooth does not work. Why didn't they just ship without this card and reduce the price another $20.

          LesMoss, according to this post, I understood you are having issues with the wireless card included on your NUC. Is this correct?

           

          Would you please provide me additional information on the issue you are experiencing when you are using the wireless adapter?

           

          • Is there a difference in WIFI connectivity if Bluetooth is off/on?
          • Is there a difference in WIFI connectivity if the connection is set to 802.11g (802.11n disabled)?

           

          Would you also provide me the following information?

          • Hardware information
            • Memory:
            • mSATA:
            • BIOS version
          • WIFI software version:
          • Operating system:
          • Access point model and firmware:
          • Access point band and channel used:

            • Is there a difference in WIFI connectivity if Bluetooth is off/on? The BIOS does not seem to have any way to turn that device off.
            • Is there a difference in WIFI connectivity if the connection is set to 802.11g (802.11n disabled)? How do I disable N?

             

            Would you also provide me the following information?

              I have been informed there is a plan to release new software to fix the issue regarding the Bluetooth. However, there are customers reporting that when using a previous driver version, they were able to use it.

                Any suggestion on which of those listed drivers would be best for the NUC? What does the asterisk mean on the recent ones?

                 

                Thanks for the advanced settings info.

                  LesMoss, 

                  It is important to know which the current driver version for your Bluetooth is, in order to install the previous one. Just make sure you download the correct driver depending on your Operating system.



                  Regarding the asterick, it is only to point out that it is a branded software.
