That’s interesting to know about the future kernel plans.
Any difference with the 4K+ ? It seems surprising that you wouldn’t try to keep all the devices on a similar or the same kernel.
My use case is: I use Tailscale on a couple of Vero 4K+ devices so they can connect back directly to my NAS (even when not connected to the same network). Tailscale works brilliantly for this, though I have noticed that while it works fine for 1080p content, it taxes the CPU a bit on the 4K+. I was hoping these improvements would be supported on the Vero to help improve the transfer efficiency/lower the system load.
I also figured these improvements may also help improve other UDP transfers, e.g. over direct UDP NFS mounts?
If these sorts of improvements could be reliably back-ported, that’d be great.
Given no newer kernel release for the 4K/4K+, any chance you might be able to back-port these improvements @sam_nazarko ?
While I’m up for purchasing the new device when it comes out (and I will), I still really appreciate these UDP improvements for Tailscale on the 2 4K+ I have. Tailscale have now released a new version that takes advantage of these features (Release 1.40.0 · tailscale/tailscale · GitHub)
