Licence key for Twonky 5.0.65

Post by kaijak » Sun Aug 31, 2014 6:42 pm

Hello,
Twonky is completely new for me. I was searching for a media server for my Buffalo Linkstation and found a good how-to about Twonky. According to that how-to I installed Twonky 5.0.65. Now I found out that I have to purchase a licence key :-)
How can I get a key for Twonky 5.0.65?
Or does the Twonky 7 key alos work for that older version?
Or can I even install Tonky 7 on my old HS DHGL?

Thank you!
Kai

Usually a 7.x key will work for 6.x, and sometimes a 6.x will work for a 7.x
But not sure about it with 5.x
In regards to the purchase of license for 5.x, youll most likely have to contact them for that, cant do that from the store
help@twonky.com or support@twonky.com

There is a list of all know versions here

If that's what they told you in regards to your key issue, then you are SOL
As I have not seen one twonky or packetvideo employee on here in ages...

As for help with getting installed on your nas,
I know the 5.x and 6.x should be easy, as for 7.x, most likely youll need to SSH into the nas
