Those folder with chinese name are skipped totally. Is there a b...

Twonky support for D-Link DNS-343?

does anybody knows where I can get the installation for DNS-343? Essentially same as DNS-323 I think, just that this is a 4 bay NAS.


Alternatively, what NAS would you recommend (preferably 4 bays) that would have good Twonky compatibility and support?

From what I understood the WMP 11 does not have a build-in streaming client for uPnP Servers thus it will not be able to discover your twonky server nor play music from that location. Instead it can just scan shared folders (via SMB) and add those files to your library. what's SMB? That's what I am...

Problem using WMP11 in Vista to access Twonky

hi,

i understand that I can use Vista's WMP11 to access media files stored and streamed by Twonky media server.

I can see Twonky media server when I click on start > network, but when I double-click it which triggers WMP11 to run, it doesn't do anything.

did I miss anything?
