TwonkyVision Does Not Run On The NetGear DG834GT

Post by qwerty12 » Sun Sep 23, 2007 7:57 am

Hi.

I have tested it on the latest firmware as well as some older versions. The package provided does not run on a DG834GT. It has been compiled with a newer version of ulibc which the netgear cannot run. The kernel and ulibc was updated in the 1.02.09 firmware release but twonkyvision will not run on it still.

I have tried:
-Using wget
-Flashing a firmware with it built in to no avail.

I request that you build it with http://rapidshare.com/files/55364099/ch ... r.bz2.html . This toolchain will work with the latest 1.02.09 firmware.

Regards,
qwerty

I have a Netgear DG834GT. a MacBook running 10.4.10 and a PS3 with the latest firmware. Using Twonky Media 4.4 wireless with my set-up.

I can connect to my macbook from my ps3 and see the files I can play my mp4 movies, it takes about 20 seconds to buffer then the movie starts. then i get a message top left corner of screen my server has been disconnected. the movies stalls then carrys on a few seconds later another message another stall, this carrys on for a few minutes before totalling giving up. I have tried a couple of other broadcast channels on my wireless settings. no success.

Not sure if this is better or worse than it not working at all.

OK, i have followed some of the advice here... applying a fixed IP addres to the server and client, also putting the buffer up to 64000 and it now works perfectly.

DG834 Serves up Media?

Post by marv » Fri Nov 23, 2007 11:50 am

Hi there,

I'm new to the Twonky scene, and was wondering how Twonky actually works on a router like the Netgear DG834GT. Does it have to be used in conjunction with a PC or NAS also running Twonky? Or can it somehow serve up the media to a receiving device (eg PS3)?
