Thank you for your replies, I do see the descriptions of the campaigns/projects here: http://www.bitcoinutopia.net/bitcoinutopia/apps.php

I was looking to confirm that the Cuda and CPU Miner projects are the ones that make money/donation for SETI, seems that is the case.

Ty!

Update: I went to check the status of the BCU project, and they were running, not sure how or why it took a while to get the CDU/CPU projects in and running, but its working. I set the BCU up on my main computer, and got a computational error when I first started it. I changed my settings to allow sgminer, updated the project, and that computational error went away, then reset the settings back to sgminer - no.
I only have a guess that that initial sgminer is some sort of benchmarking.
What is sgminer? The mystery question!

Lastly, doing so, unchecking all except project #5 and Cuda/CPU, then updated BIONC, leaves my computer with nothing to do.

Is there some other setting that does allow me to pickup new jobs/data for these 2 types? PLMK.

Oh, the sgminer was the only thing working, what is that compared to the other ##miner?

============================================
cgminer (Campaign #5) (for 1.6+GH/s ASICs): yes
cgminer (Campaign #5) (for 333MH/s ASICs): yes
cgminer (Campaign #5) (for 20+GH/s ASICs): no
CudaMiner (Campaign #5): yes
CPUMiner (Campaign #5): yes
sgminer (Campaign #5): no
bfgminer (Campaign #5) (for 20+GH/s Blade erupter ASICs): no
=============================================================

I found it: ON BCU, left side, go down you will see:
Returning participants

Your account - view stats, modify preferences
Server status
Teams - create or join a team
Certificate
Applications

Select Modify Preferences:

Then...

Preferences
When and how BOINC uses your computer Computing preferences
Message boards and private messages Community preferences
Preferences for this project Bitcoin Utopia preferences

Select Bitcoin Utopia Preferences

Select - Edit Bitcoin Utopia preferences

Then uncheck the stuff you don't want, as previously mentioned.

=================================
EDIT : only do the cudaminer and cpuminer not shore about the sgminer Don't do any ASIC or any others unless you have the hardware and it's #5 Campaign units you would want to do for seti #6 Campaign is not list and is finished i believe
EDIT EDIT : you set theses in the bitcion utopia preferances on the web site as you would set what type of units you want seti to do
================================

HI There,

I am not familiar with BitCoinU, but I did follow your instructions, and have the project running as of now in BIONC, it's running all sgminer's, but I do not see where these settings are to turn on/off certain job types CPU/CDA and campaigns. I see the campaigns running, but I don't see on the BCU page, my profile, etc, where I can select data and project types.

Can someone clarify where these controls are please, and how to turn them off? Thanks!

Thank you so much!
The Update button seemed to do the trick.
I didn't see it do anything at first, but after I went back to look at the BOINC manager later, all the Ready to Report Tasks were gone.
Would be nice to see something like Tasks Reported, similar to uTorrent when you see downloads completed.

Regards,

Robert

Greetings,

I installed SETI yesterday, have completed a few dozen Tasks, but have a long list of Ready to Report tasks that haven't reported.
Going to the Tasks panel, I have 25 tasks ready to report.
Under the Advanced Tab, I hit the Do Network Communication, to try and send the completed tasks - but nothing happens.
Under the Transfers Tab there is nothing pending, and no options to select.
I checked all settings, have been running with Network Activity Always Available on for over an hour, but nothing has gone through that I can see.
Checking my SETI profile, no work / credit is shown as done at this time.
It's been close to 24 hours since my first task was completed.

What am I missing? Should completed tasks report right away? I recall under the old SETI they would submit completed tasks before new ones where received.

Can we force send our completed tasks to ensure they get submitted?
What is the expected wait time for tasks to be submitted and updated from the Ready to Report Status to Reported?

Thanks in advance.

I have a similar problem?

After setting up BOINC, i started poking around my stats. I have Seti Classic running for the longest time, upgraded to 3.08 recently on some machines.

Either way, results of units completed are not showing on seti at all. It shows 3100 since only March of 2005, well, I am at 3880 and climbing. Where are the results on Seti website?
