Someone knows to upgrade twonky server from 6.0.39 to 7.0.05 version? Until 6.0.39 i haven't no problems to update, but this new version is very different to 6.0.x version and the method to install ts nas on wdmbe doesn't work…
I had a play with this today, and although it looks different, it ran incredibly slow on my nas (mbwe white). I need to upgrade the firmware soon, so I might try again. Let me know if you want instructions to try for yourself.
Hi! If you manage to install 7.0.5 on your mbwe white, please share you knowledge! I would be interested too! Thanks!
Alright, here are the instructions (same disclaimer as always :)).
1. Install optware - skip to step 3 if already installed.
wget http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/local--files/optware/setup-whitelight.sh sh setup-whitelight.sh echo "export PATH=$PATH:/opt/bin:/opt/sbin" >> /root/.bashrc echo "export PATH=$PATH:/opt/bin:/opt/sbin" >> /etc/profile
2. Reboot through web-interface
3. Once it has re-started, install unzip and nano
ipkg update ipkg install unzip ipkg install nano
4. Make twonky 7 directory
5. Move to new directory
6. Download the zip file from twonky's website
7. Unzip compressed file
8. Move to /etc/init.d
9. Stop all twonky
10. create backup of twonky 5/6 startup script and remove execute permissions
mv S97twonkyserver S97twonkyserver.backup chmod a-x S97twonkyserver.backup
11. create symbolic link to townky.sh in twonky7 directory and make executable
ln -s /twonky7/twonky.sh S97twonkyserver chmod a+x S97twonkyserver
12. edit startup script to start it correct directory - use nano to edit startup script
change line WORKDIR1="/usr/local/twonky" to WORKDIR1="/twonky7"
press Crtl-X to save and exit
13. Start twonky 7
If you already have a Twonky 6 license key, then it should work for Twonky 7. Let me know if there are any mistakes above and i will correct it for everyone :) It seems to be working much better than when i first installed it - probably because it was running twonky6 at the same time (forgot to make the script not execute :P).
Not working for me. I am repeatedly getting the following message:
Twonky Version 7.0.5
Current time [Startup] - LOG_SYSTEM: upnp_ini_file_init_DATA_Dir : AppData folder - /var/twonky/TwonkyServer - cannot be accessed or not writable.
I'm guessing that I either have put something in the wrong directory or need to change permissions somewhere,
Went in and manually added the folder /var/twonky/TwonkyServer and all seems to be working now. Once the database is set up, I will try and stream some music.
Hi, I've also upgraded my Twonky to 6.0.38 but I noticed that it doesn't work as smoothly as the 5.x version that came with my white light. I use my PS3 as my main DLNA client and streaming video directly from the NAS was always very smooth but since I upgraded I get lots of hanging where both image freezes and sound stops for several secs, as if some buffering is happening somewhere. Very annoying!
One thing I noticed is that the number of processes running for twonky seems to have increased and, since this nas has very little RAM, maybe it's overwhelmed. Is anyone else observing this issue? I tried to find out if there are any settings to tweak but I cannot find them anywhere. That .ini file seems to be protected or encrypted or in binary format and I can't see much less change any settings there.
I'm finding that things work well for streaming to my Denon AV receiver, but I'm having lots of problems with my Samsung TV dropping the connection to my WD NAS when I try and stream photos using my TV's networking capability. This was not a problem with my TV when I ran Twonky 6.0.38
I have also stopped the proxy & webdav (i have no idea what these do). Maybe this will speed it up a bit..?
in S97twonkyserver change these two to 0 (disable) as per below.
#change this to 0 to disable the twonky proxy service START_PROXY=0 #change this to 0 to disable the twonky webdav service START_WEBDAV=0
I've read and followed the perfect explanation of sr_sparky but now I'm getting the same error: "Twonky Version 7.0.5
Current time [Startup] - LOG_SYSTEM: upnp_ini_file_init_DATA_Dir : AppData folder - /var/twonky/TwonkyServer - cannot be accessed or not writable.".
Where did you locate the new folders tree /var/twonky/? On the root? On /twonky7? Many thanks for your help.
P.S.: I'm upgrading directly from Twonky 5 to 7. Any other hint to do that? I'm a totally noob on Linux so I need everything explained step by step.
I am trying to upgrade from Twonky 5 to twonky 7, using the above instructions (have reached step 7).
Should I be upgrading to Twonky6 first and getting a license key?
You can upgrade direct from 5 to 7, you will have a 30 days trial.
If you're happy with 7 version, you will need to purchase key after 30 days (which is the same as 6 key).
n00b question … where do I enter the key?
On the 1st page, where it ask 'key'.
I am getting error message /twonky7/twonkystarter … /twonky7/twonkystarter: /twonky7/twonkystarte r: 1:ELF*: not found
/twonky7/twonkystarter: /twonky7/twonkystarter: 2: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
