Re: Can Twonky Server allow to pause songs played on a recei

I've forwarded your e-mail to our developers to find out if this is a client issue or a server issue. I'm pretty sure other players can do this.

Re: Twonky not working on Bravia TV

Sorry to hear that you're having problems. What year is your TV? What is the pixel dimensions of your MPEG-2 file? Most Sony TVs sold in the U.S. before 2011 (or so) had limited format support (MPEG-2 and AVCHD only). MPEG-2 is supported, but my Sony Blu-ray doesn't play 1920x1080 MPEG-2 files. - Rick
