Re: Twonky Server7 Configuration

I think I just figured out why they won't work. The mytwonky.com site requires video/photo/music headers.
Or, as is more likely, I put them someplace wrong.

Good luck finding something out. I can't remember if I ever thanked you for the work you did on them. If not, thanks.
