Re: Has anyone tried the new version (Twonky 7)?   Will vs 7...

What about Licence for 7.0.5? If I get one, where do I copy it?

Re: Has anyone tried the new version (Twonky 7)?   Will vs 7...

Hello.

 

I've upgraded directly from V5 to V7 Special. Everything is fine and Twonky 7 is running OK with MP3 and photos, but I can't play normal video files formats on my Sony Bravia. It seems that nothing works with the Bravias... If any guy knows the solution, I will appreciate it so much.

I've purchased the Twonky 7 license, a bargain, but I can't see videos; only the TS format files.

 

Thanks

Re: Has anyone tried the new version (Twonky 7)?   Will vs 7...


Hi,

after installing the version 7, my Samsung Smart TV disconnects constantly.

I did downgrade to version 6.0.39 (back to the passages) and everything has returned to work.

If you can help someone, here are the steps I did:


login ssh (ssh root@youripaddress - password: welc0me)

 

/etc/init.d/twonky stop

cd /usr/local/twonkymedia-5

wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/6.0.39/twonkymedia-powerpc-glibc-2.2.5-6.0.39.zip

unzip twonkymedia-powerpc-glibc-2.2.5-6.0.39.zip (overwrite all)

mv /usr/local/sbin/writeTwonkyContentDir.sh.old /usr/local/sbin/writeTwonkyContentDir.sh

mv /etc/init.d/twonky.old /etc/init.d/twonky

reboot

Re: Update twonkyserver to 6.0.39

hey thanks for posting such quick and easy instructions for upgrading twonky to v6. i have been able to successfully upgrade my twonky server to 6.0.39 on my WD MBL but I still CANNOT view any mkv files on my samsung tv.

 

i have rebooted by MBL and twonky server. in the twonky and MBL web interface i can see that the version has changed to 6.0.38 but i continue to receive the "fill format not support error" everytime i try to open a MKV.

 

i then installed the v7 of twonky on my windows PC and can comfortably stream all fole formats from my PC however since all my media files are on the MBL i really need to be able to stream my mkvs from there. any idea what could be going on? I have a samsung D6600 which i able to see all files on my MBL so i know that the TV and twonky on MBL are talkking.

 

pls help!

- Go in Twonky Setting -Click on "Media Receivers" under Advanced  Setup (Media Receivers will display devices that the Media Server recognizes on the network. The Mac address, type of device, and IP address will be displayed.) - Select the Device and the type in "Samsung Smart TV". - Save - Restart Server and try

Re: Update twonkyserver to 6.0.39

Well from that interface i see a dropdown of all the twonky supported devices. i don't have the ability to enter any text hut i selected Samsung tv. i doesn't help. I don't get how almost everyone here is reporting success after upgrading to v6. For me it doesn't open any more files than v5.

Re: Update twonkyserver to 6.0.39

No need to change any config or anything. I suggest you upgrade the firmware and then retry with the method I posted earier for 6.0.39 in page 23. Unfortunately my MBL crashed and sent out for replacement hence I cannot test and provide a completely v7 instruction or test everything.

Re: Update twonkyserver to 6.0.39

alright... will do that.. shall upgrade my MBL firmware. what prevented me from doing this so far was the fear of losing the feature pack and the applications it provided.. any idea if feature pack is supported by the latest MBL firmware?
