I have a NAS device running foonas (foonas.org), and my trial period expires in about 16 days. I am happy to buy a license, but want to know for sure that the key that I buy for 5.0 will work in the 4.4.1 version that I have installed.

Don't know about TMS v5, but a TMM v5 (Twonky Media Manager) licence key doesn't work on v4.

Looking at the web site it also seems you can only buy a new licence key for TMM v5. TMS v5 licence keys can only bought on upgrade from an existing TMS v4 licence. That's my reading of the web site, anyway.

thanks for the info steveg ... I have crosscompiled mediatomb 0.11.0 in OpenEmbedded, for my LS2 that is running foonas, and it works very well with my Roku and my XBMC.

:D

Pictures/slideshows & music are flawless, and I like the way the database tree functions. The learning curve for mediatomb is just a bit steeper than that for TwonkyMedia server, but it has some features that (for me at least) are well worth it. :lol:
