Re: Tivo and Twonky

Some yes, but look at the list - there seems to be a requirement for them to run a DLNA client (such as XBMC).

I assume you're looking for Twonky to include the functionality of TivoServer?

Re: Tivo and Twonky

Tivo needs to be a functional DLNA client for it to work with Twonky.

Postings on Tivo forums from just a month ago show that it does not yet support DLNA and there are no published plans to do so.

Your problem may be because you're running 4.4.18. Certainly running 5.1.x with that change I have no problems on a B650 Samsung (see my other posts on the matter).

Re: NTFS under linux

NTFS is a different beast from other filesystems - can you, as root, read the files in that partition? I'd suggest that unless you have a burning need to keep it as NTFS you copy the media off and reformat the partition to either FAT32 (if you need to access it from Windows too) or EXT (if you don't).
