I've it running on an LS Pro, development system since last Thursday.
+) After a restart the complete database shows up within a couple of minutes. Seems to have improved since RC3 when it looked like all the metadata were scanned again.
+) No issues with the Soundbridge, the Philips TV sees the TMS 5.1.1 after adding a proper definition to resources/clients.db
+) Quite stable, though once the server disappeared while watching a movie. The webinterface was still reachable, but on the TV I could only see the server with no nodes (music/pictures/video) below it. Restarting TMS from the webinterface solved the issue. Today the NAS rebooted. I'm not absolutely sure if this was connected to TMS but I can't remember that this happened before.
-) some of my AVI files with MP4 video are missing, others are there, so far I couldn't give a rule what's the common criteria for each group. However it is consistent with "- Due to the updated mpeg and mp4 file parsers there may be some issues adding these files to the database"
-) I had that issue of double listed clients again that I already observed with RC3.
Bottom line: So far I'd recommend to wait a bit until the stability issue has been clarified before installing it on a productive system. Further the missing AVI's should be solved. For many this will be a show stopper. Finally the HowTo about defining own views some here have already asked for would be great (Known Issues).
