I submitted the post wondering if WD would upgrade TM to 6.0.37, especially since the Twonky Web site indicated the ‘5’ version keys would activate TM ‘6’ (in my thinking, that would solve the license issue, but I’m sure there’s more to it than that).
I had previously purchased Twonky-Manager to stream my video files, pictures, etc. from a Atom MB desktop PC. It really was a intermin solution while I looked around for a NAS.
I found a 1TB MBL cheap at staples. I installed it and all was well until I realized the MBL didn’t stream mp4’s to my Samsung.
Following the forums I installed the 6.0.37 ppc TM on the MBL.
If you look at the 5.1.9 config page on the MBL, is just states it’s registered, no license (key) is displayed.
Upon re-booting to run 6.0.37 the config page shows the empty license key fields. I used the key from the copy I bought, clicked save and it now states it’s registered.
I’ve since unloaded the desktop and rely on the MBL only. But the purchased key ($19 USD) did in fact work. At least it shows registered. I doubt it will break after thirty days.
I plan on reviewing the 5.1.9 load to see if there’s a dat file that may contain the key. but at least a key purchased will work.
