Licence problem; this is urgent so please fix it for us!

Hi I'm in the same boat in that I have just bought a new NAS (for a customer) and cannot licence TM4.4.9. Given that TM5 currently doesn't work with FLAC files and this NAS is for a customer with an expensive Linn system which will be used only to play FLAC files, I either need a TM4 licence or the ...

Re: Coverart not showing

Hi I have about 14000 FLAC files (on a NAS) and have found that art is really buggy in TM4. Initially, I had so many missing ones that the whole concept of showing art seemed almost pointless, but after some excellent info from Audiokaas and confirmed by experimentation of my own, I now have art dis...

Re: no internetradio!

Hi I've discovered what might be causing me the problem. I editid the hosts file and rebooted the NAS. I see that when you reboot the NAS, it builds a new hosts file with the original entries (i.e. without the shoutcast line). I've tried adding the line to the hosts file and rebuilt the TM database ...

Re: no internetradio!

Why do you edit an executable? Just enter this line to your "host" file. 207.200.98.25 http://www.shoutcast.com This file is intended for that kind of redirection. Works perfectly in Windows and Unix without any need to patch the shoutcast_plugin. Hi I've reverted to Twonky 4.4.6 as it performs bet...

Re: 4.4.9 released now

Is it just me or is the Twonky 4.4.9 rescan very buggy? Sometimes it resacans after correctly a server restart, usually it nees a full database rebuild to pick any new music up. Also, there is a NDD hibernation issue relating to rescan (which can only be sorted by a Twonky restart after the scan) fu...

Hi

As Turls asks in the post above this one, can anyone pass any comment on whether anything's being done for ReadyNAS users? It would be useful to at least know whether it's even being looked at or not!

Me too; I'm happy with a hex editor but don't want to access my NAS root as it will invalidate the warranty; is anone working on a NAS patch or add-on (in my case for a Netgear ReadyNAS)?

Thus, I think TwonkyMedia should invest a bit for the lossless folks as this is for sure a rapidly growing customer's segment. Cheers :? Do you have any sites providing data that lossless is a radidly growing segement? As this is the opposite of what I have seen, lossless is a niche still. Hi That'...

Re: Thecus N2100 spindown - irrespective of Twonky's scan setup

Footnote to the above: I tried an unofficial beta Twonky 5 for the Netgear NAS (someone has kindly posted on the Netgear site) and the hibernation failed. I've removed it to see if that's what caused the problem and will post an update when I know the answer.

Here's an idea:

How about a button (on the new web interface) which points to http://my.IP.address:8100/rpc/rescan and thus starts a database refresh?
