Complete novice needs help

Post by Sasqwatch » Sun Oct 11, 2009 12:01 pm

Hi all.

I have a ReadyNAS Duo, and a Panasonic Viera TV.

What do I need to install, and where do I install it?

Do I need the server version, or Media Manager? Do I install it on the PC, or the ReadyNAS?

I am a complete novice at all this streaming stuff etc so be gentle please.

Does your TV support UPNP Streaming?
If not you need a further media Box. If you have xBox 360 or PS3 its also OK.

Install Twonky Server 6.0.1 on your NAS Duo. You can get the BIN file from the neatgear forum on
Install it over your Update function in the WebGUI of the NAS. After installtion reboot your NAS.
Then you have a new share "media" on your NAS. Create a pictures, music and videos folder inside this media folder and set it up in the server. Copy some media into this folders and rebuild your twonky database. Thats it.

Have fun and good luck
