Network errors, no artwork - help please

Post by datahoarder » Tue Feb 17, 2009 1:14 am

I have Twonky 4.4.11 running on a maxtor shared storage NAS. I am having issues with the PS3(ver 2.60). 2 issues .

1. When streaming divx movies about 3 times a movie it stops with a network error.

2. When listening to mp3's . I get a network error but the song still plays but is missing the embedded artwork.

I used to have twonky 4.4.8, ps3 (ver2.55) and the mp3's would fail but it showed the artwork.

Any suggestions on diagnosing the issue. I am wired, i removed all the "&"'s from the mp3 filenames. I have a 2wire adsl modem/router.

Did you try raising the buffer? I had loads of network problems, but after a buffer raise it turned out a lot better. These days I have trouble with disconnects when I switch the lights on or off. Somehow that current interferes with my netcabling :) Fantastic isn't it? :lol:

Check for ' characters in mp3 file names - this bug still persists in 4.4.11, despite being pointed out elsewhere in this forum last November:

Finally got it hope this helps someon else;

Get rid of the " ' " in all filenames and checked the check box regarding photoscaling in the maitenance options and they reappeared.

Thanks
