eVEN THOUGH I HAVE POSTED THIS TO SUPPORT VIA EMAIL; DECIDED TO POST HERE ALSO FOR COMPLETENESS…**bleep** caps! not shouting;
All seemed well as mentioned on the phone, until today. The unit sits next to me in my living room. It burst into disk activity once more and knowing I was not accessing it I investigated. Logged into mycloud, nothing obvious. Logged into twonky and it said it was streaming, but I have nothing in ‘public’ and I know I was not accessing it so needed to find out who was accessing the unit and more to the point requesting streamed media which they shouldn’t have access to. I couldn’t find anything on either UI that told me what or who the box was doing something for…is this feature somewhere?
Anyway, I decided to login into the box via an xterm emulator. Don’t panic; I made no changes and in fact decided to log straight out as there was no GUI interface, only the command line and whilst many lives ago I used to work with Unix servers, that was literally, a life ago so as I could not remember anything useful I decided to log out. Being paranoid and as I did not like the idea it was saying ‘streaming’ I disconnected the network cable. Whilst the disk activity did reduce a little, it still remained so not convinced it was truly stream activity. I was about to reboot the box, so I plugged it back into the network, went into the UI, was about to reboot, but the disk activity virtually stopped. I don’t like things that can’t be explained so I had another look in both UI’s and noticed both showed I no longer had any media types stored. The twonky said zero to video, songs and photo’s but also it had nothing registered as media locations any longer. Once I added both directories back as my music and photos and ALL I have done was request it to rebuild…no response. I then asked it to re-scan, it then burst into action and eventually I got my stats back; songs-5286 photos-7457. A re-login on the mycloud interface eventually showed the same. I’m intrigued how the box lost my twonky config and removed all media references and then there is the weird ‘streaming’. I would be very appreciative if you can pass these further info onto your back office chaps.
