I have installed the 30 day trail version of Twonky 7.0.9 special on the My Book Live drive and am having trouble getting any videos to play. Had this problem back when version 5 of Twonky was on the drive so really no change. Followed Dav-M's procedure and do indeed seem to have the correct version of Twonky installed. I can access the web interface via the GUI and via the ip:9000 web page. When I look at sharing>media receivers on the ip:9000 interface I can see the list get populated and then shrink. Seems like I have read that this is not a big issue, but more of an annoyance. Although the Bluray player does disappear from the list. In the settings>media tab of the GUI on the WD My Book Live the Bluray player stays around and is not blocked. I have edited 2 files with nano via terminal on my mac. One is the sony bluray.xml file where I have commented out a few lines (sorry I don't seem to be able to post links to this wiki yet since I'm a newbie) and I changes the parameters to fixed in another file (forget exactly what that was right now, but might have been that same file…yes?
All of this does not seem to hall with the playing of videos. I have a .mkv, .mov, .divx, .you name it on the drive and none will play. Any thoughts about what might be going wrong? The message I get is something along the lines of corrupt or missing file
Thanks for any and all help
