Additional Notes

CPU / Video Card upgrading

  • When upgrading the CPU, a driver update, specifically an ATI driver update, may be necessary as screen tearing and/or artifacts may occur. Additionally, upgrading the video card to an ATI video card will require an update to the latest ATI video drivers. If adding an nVidia-based video, n-vidia drivers will need to be installed.
   ATI Driver Update:
   sudo gedit  /etc/apt/sources.list
   
   deb http://us.test.neuros.tv/neuroslink intrepid main
   Once done editing, save and close your sources.list
   sudo neuros-upgrader.sh

This should resolve tearing/artifacts. Some users have reported an improvement in the playing of flash video, to the detriment of local video playback, so update at your own risk.

PSU Limitations

  • The stock PSU that ships with the Neuros Link is a (at this time) 250 watt power supply, which may or may not be increased/decreased, dependent upon any possible future hardware revisions. Attempting to run user-added components may overload your PSU and cause problems when attempting to boot, bios post problems, or even lead to permanently damaged hardware.
