This is very disappointing that the cheaper consumer level NAS has the updated Twonky 5 Media software.

if WD can not release a firmware update for us, can you at least offer us software update so we can have TW5.  the differences in features and performance of 4 vs 5 is huge. TW4 biggest issue is it lacks the ability to transcode so for example in my network we have Macs/Pcs Ps3 Wii Xbox and directv with mediashare.  if i want to server any content to these devices i have to make multiple copies of a video each encoded in the codec best suited for that device. TW5 will transcode media to each device in the codec best suited for that device without you having to manually make multiple copies
