in thread Perl vs. PHP in streaming a file
Thanks for your help so far. To the response of 280kbps I get the same speed out of my machine too with the perl script but for some reason the Tivo box really lags when I use perl, but not with php. My assumption is that the data is not reaching it fast enough, since this is a streaming file, but it could be another problem too. I am just trying to figure out what is different with PHP and perl in this respect.
And to answer the question why I don't use apache. I actually am, TiVo and the homemedia option always use an alias http://server/TiVoConnect so in order to make it function right I have to use a script to be able to determine what is a query or what is a data transmission.
