Twonky vs PVConnect on WHS PP1

Post by Bugsy1957 » Mon Jul 28, 2008 8:35 pm

This is probably a very simple and possibly a stupid question.

I have a Windows Home Server and until last week had a purchased version of Twonky installed. Apart from the well known issue with the PS3 since 2.41 I was very happy with the combination.

I have now upgraded to WHS PP1 and this now includes PVconnect and my question is quite simply what is the difference between Twonky PVConnect - do they offer the same functionality

My main requirement is to stream music, photos and video (mainly m2ts) throughout the house using PS3s as clients

Pre PS3 2.41 Twonky was able to do this fine. Does PVConnect offer this functionality?

PVConnect is the combination of TwonkyMedia Server and a WHS add-in that allows you to administer Twonky via the WHS connector interface. At least, it should but it has some annoying bugs such as when you attempt to change shared folders it gets very confused.

HTH
