You start twonky using the -appdata switch and point it to a folder not on your SSD. Search the forum for -appdata and you'll find plenty of posts about it.

Re: Twonky v6 keeps "forgetting" settings

No, it's because your installation has put the ini file into a folder that gets deleted each time the NAS restarts - often the /var folder.

I have a B650 Samsung TV and that will only play mp3 files. The newer C series must play more than this if you have got some aac files to play.

If the files don't play from USB then it's a TV problem and not a streaming problem.
