clients.db

Post by jon_beeker » Fri Aug 31, 2012 12:37 am

Hello all,
I am having trouble with most media receivers being identified as "generic media receiver". I wanted to play around with a few settings and make a more specific list. Older posts speak of a "clients.db" file. I have twonky 7 and this file is nowhere on my linux machine. Does it exist in a different form?
Thanks!

It is no longer a single file

The folder /twonky/resources/devicedb
has some files and folders in it
they are all now individual xml files

if there isnt an actual client profile for you device
to figure what to do, first turn on logging
turn on client, search logs for client being detected
for example if you had a ps3, somewhere in the logs it would see the word playstation
and based on the code below in the ps3.xml
twonky would know to assign it that cient profile

<HttpRecognition>
<HttpText>PLAYSTATION</HttpText>
</HttpRecognition>

just peek at existing client profiles, some recognition is done differently
