[HELP] Twonky 7.3 on intel no content on Sony BD

Post by shawncochran » Mon Sep 29, 2014 8:34 pm

Currently: intel platform using newly purchased license for Twonky 7.3; files scanned and "in database" -- Twonky server “sees” the folder structure for the videos, but, when I go into a folder I get “there is no playable file” from my Sony BDP-S470

Previous to this morning: QNAP TS-212P running v4.1.1 Build 0916; Twonky v7.2.7 update; Sony BDP-S470 -- had ZERO issues before this morning's updates for QNAP v4.1.1 and Twonky 7.2.7 -- now the Twonky server locates the correct folders (video and music) but the BDP says "no playable file" --- although Plex (v2.2.6 a/k/a v0.9.9.14) software running on TS-212P works fine (except Sony BDP will not stream anything through Plex; only Roku, WMP, etc work)

No Twonky solution working now (neither paid Intel version nor free version on QNAP TS212P)

for reference: http://127.0.0.1:9000/#sharing
if you look under sharing, and then look under Media Receivers
you will see the clients listed by mac and ip address, and the assigned "Media Receiver Type"

See if one of the other client profiles work
For example:

Sony Bravia
Sony Blu-Ray Player
Sony STB

I changed it to "Sony Blu-ray Home Theater" and that fixed it. If I had documentation I would've dug through it -- but I am VERY THANKFUL FOR YOUR HELP TODAY!!!!
I had no idea this was even a requirement. Thank you for getting me working again. :P
