Twonky 7.2.9 on MyCloud lose setup information "what kind o

Post by real_lucky » Tue Nov 25, 2014 5:18 pm

Hi,

I have a WD NAS MyCloud. The default is the Twonky Version: 7.2.9 installed. In the setup of Twonky I can specify directories where Twonky to scan the media files. And I can determine there also what kind of media files (music, photo, video or mixed of them) Twonky be in the directory are scanned.

The MyCloud is connected to the router. And whenever I turn off the router loses the Twonky in the setup information "what kind of media files (music, photo, video or mixed of them)" and puts this information to default.

This will then e.g. in the "video" directorie Cover all scanned as a "photo". And many photos will be doubled or more.....

The router with my Lan is always shut down by me at night (I hate standby). But the server runs on!

What can I do so that I am the Lan switch on again and the Twonky the information "kind of media files (music, photo, video or mixed of them)" still has?

best regards
Lucky

The issue is being caused by WD share settings
they are overwriting what gets defined in the Twonky share settings
to stop this from happening, there is only one thing that can be done

you have to enable SSH and then SSH into the NAS and rename a file with this command

Code: Select all

mv /usr/local/sbin/writeTwonkyContentDir.sh /usr/local/sbin/writeTwonkyContentDir.sh.old
the purpose of the shell script is to reset twonky shares to match wd share settings
