Twonky fails to read some tags

I struck a real funny one today. I compared my MP3 Tracks maintained by Twonky against a scan by MediaMonkey and found Twonky 10 tracks short. After much searching and comparison I found that Twonky was not recognising the following album "...Ish" by 1927 I modified the album tag with MediaMonkey to...

Re: Does Twonky support native FLAC streaming?

You can modify the clients.db file which is in the resources directory to pass throug what you want.

This will take a bit of study and trial and error though.

I had to something similar for my Ziova/Zensonic clients quite a while ago.

I need to change the client.db so that my Ziova/Zensonic players are recognised otherwise the music tracks sort by alpha, not track number.

You can already do this tagging using ABCAvi Tag Editor and it's a free download.

As you said, TVersity will recognise these tags.

On XP,you need to use an addin like On2Share or a uPnP client like Nero Showtime.

Twonky does not do any transcoding so the problem is at your client end.

For your Windows Media Player client to output 5.1 AC3, download and set up the FFDShow/AC3Filter codecs.

On the XBox, I suggest that you make sure that you are running the latest update and jump on the XBox forums for advice.
