Means to test server streaming performance?

Hi, is there any way to test the maximum throughput that my UPnP server is able to deliver? I'm looking for a client that can connect to the server and pull down a file at the fastest rate that the server is able to deliver, it doesn't need to render the content, just report that it is receiving the...

Re: !!!Auto Content Detection (working) - PLEASE!!!

The problem is the -1 config option won't stick it reverts to the default 60min timed rescan interval - least it never did stick with TV running on the LinkStation and neither on the QNAP. This indicates that the auto detection option is not supported - which considering it is included / built-in on...

!!!Auto Content Detection (working) - PLEASE!!!

Hello fellow TV users, I'd like to raise the issue of automatic content detection by TV again. This is for me by far and away the most frustrating aspect of TV operation. I've recently swapped out my NAS for a QNAP TS-409, previously having used a LinkStation. The QNAP runs TV & an iTunes server. Fo...

My DivX (XviD) files all have a .avi extension. They play fine on Xbox360 but not PS3. The .wmv files are also not playing on PS3.

What system/configuration have you tested this with to say DivX is supported for PS3? It is not working for me on Linkstation PPC NAS. If you have some guidelines we need to follow for this to work, please can you post them here. Oh and is there any way for us to configure things such that Music Vid...

The Xbox 360 real time transcodes the 5.1 surround in WMV-HD's to Dolby Digital 5.1 (AC3) output via optical. It doesn't look like the PS3 does this :-(

Do we know if Twonky also requires the database to be rebuilt like MediaTomb after making the MIME type changes in the client.db? I tried MT:avi video/x-divx without success, but I didn't rebuild database, only just restarted server. I'm not at home now to be able to retry. I would suspect it should...

We can probably fix this ourselves, I imagine it just requires a modification to the client.db entry for the PS3 to reflect the new video types the PS3 can now support. If I add .avi and .wmv to the MT:mpeg,mpeg2,vdr,spts,tp,ts video/mpeg line the files show up in the PS3 interface, but error play. ...

I'm not a huge Mac user, and don't really use iPhoto, but I do have a Kodak EX1011 and Twonky running on a LinkStation NAS.

Thanks for the heads up - I'm beginning to sound like a stuck record (in the hopes that some one from D-Link Europe who can may be reading this). The Push Video & Pictures still don't work with this version.

I'm 99% sure it will be twonky, not recognising m2ts as a valid video format that it can offer to the client.

Christian, if you read this, is it possible to enable .m2ts in the client.db for PS3 - Thanks

I have the HD-SR1E. You can stream the AVCHD files to the PS3 via UPnP but you need to change the file extension from .m2ts to .mpg or the files will not be recognised.

Hi Christian, Now that the new version of inotify is embedded in the later 2.6 linux kernels and apparently does not use or create /dev/inotify would it be possible for Twonky to now look at supporting this method of new file detection, as this is the way things appear to be moving.

Pete, the first thing you should realise so far as the Nokia phones, is that they are NOT UPnP renderers i.e. you cannot 'stream' content from your UPnP server (Twonky in this case) to your phone. You can use the Nokias as Control Points - glorified remote controls in effect where you can choose to ...
