Pardon me for putting out the question again, I really can't figure out how to select individual sticks in order to have different sticks mine to different pools, or set their frequencies to different levels.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Also, is a T5 screwdriver what is needed to tune the voltage without risk of damaging the poti?
Thanks in advance.
Dosent matter what you turn it with (i sometimes just use my finger nail
) the important thing is not to turn it past its maximum or minimum setting (the whole range is within 180 degrees), otherwise you risk breaking the pot. There is no built in "stop" so if you keep turning it will eventually break.
You can't mine different sticks with different pools with a single bfgminer instance. What you need to do is specify which stick you want run per instance (you can easily do this by just making two .bat or script start-up files), and just run a separate instance per pool.
You specify which stick you need to figure out the COM ports the sticks are connected too then simply replace -S MLD:all with the actual com ports.
For example in linux it would look something like this:
./bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://us.litecoinpool.org:3333 -u jstefanop.1 -p 1,d=16 -S MLD:/dev/ttyUSB0 -S MLD:/dev/ttyUSB1 --set MLD:clock=144
for windows your .bat file will look like this:
bfgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://us.litecoinpool.org:3333 -u jstefanop.1 -p 1,d=16 -S MLD:\\.\COM0 S MLD:\\.\COM1 --set MLD:clock=144
and you just keep simply adding the -S MLD:\\.\COMx argument for each miner you want to add.
If you want to specify frequencies for each individual miners you can point which frequency gets set to which miner by changing the global --set MLD:clock=144
to --set MLD@/dev/ttyUSB0:clock=320 (note I haven't really tested if you can keep the global option and lets say just set one stick to a different frequency...if you do it this way you might have to specify frequencies for each miner port individually even if some of them are the same, since the global option might override individual frequencies).
So if you have two sticks and want two different frequencies your options might look like this:
./bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://us.litecoinpool.org:3333 -u jstefanop.1 -p 1,d=16 -S MLD:/dev/ttyUSB0 -S MLD:/dev/ttyUSB1 --set MLD@/dev/ttyUSB0:clock=320 --set MLD@/dev/ttyUSB1:clock=304
