I’m using xolo miner too, ver 0.8RC1, This is very strange that default option is 7, because my workers is send to pool very many 6-ch.
May be this happened because xolo miner is writened for beeeeer.org and rpool.net is not using this option?
If you take a look at the example block: http://rpool.net/blocks/11053 you can clearly see, that most users mine 6-ch, and only few not doing 6-ch instead of 7+
Btw, i’m a little newb so my question may be stupid, but - is this worth to skip 6-ch work? I mean, if i force to skip 6-ch, miner will just skip them and do the 7+ only, or miner will proceed them, but not submit to pool? In second case, turning 7+ only option will be stupid choise…
