Thanks, will try this tomorrow! Also gave a thought to the wtware installer version pre and post b+, so I´m glad you´ve explained how what I need can be done with the most recent build.

WTware 5.6.24 released on 10 January 2018.
Raspberry 3B+ released on 14 March 2018.
Install new WTware version, that is released after 3B+ and it will make SD for 3B+.

WTware for x86 on USB is "BOOT USB" button in top left corner of configurator.

What is "the sdcard made for the 3b"? Wtware makes only one scard. This scard will run on all PIs this version can run.

Just tried it out with the new B+: Whether if I use the installation I had of WTWARE or a brandnew one, all I get is a black screen.
I´m thinking that this could be due to using v 5.6.24, instead of the latest one. The problem is that if I use the latest, I do not get the option to install "wtware for x86".

Could someone help out here please?

PS: I tried my libreelec sdcard to see if there´s any issues with the pi, but that worked fine.

Yes.
Thanks, it will not have configured itself for a lower performance when used with the 3B model?

Btw, can I use the sdcard made for the 3b in the 3b+?

Thanks, I actually just realized this a few hours before reading your reply, that B+ has that 1GB interface and also a better performance. So I cancelled my order for the USB/LAN card and ordered a B+ instead. Should arrive in a few days so cannot wait to see if this will do the trick!

Pi 3B+ (with Plus) has gigabit Ethernet onboard. Connected to USB 2.0 (no more than 480 megabit). I don't see much better playback.

And test it with raspbian first. My raspberry won't work with USB gigabit even with raspbian...

Dear All,

Did anyone try hooking up their raspberry to a 1000 mb LAN port via USB, like this one: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Moweek- ... 4c4dAL3tXE

I´m wondering if this would help HD video to play smoother in WTWare on Raspberry Pi 3B.

PS: I already ordered one so I can tell in a couple of weeks :)
