Qnap212p, Twonky and Sony kdl-46ex803

Post by supersixone » Wed Jan 07, 2015 3:25 pm

Anyone have knowledge of running Twonky on a Qnap NAS device?

I'm only trying to stream audio at the moment.
If I use the beta DLNA server on the QNAP it works ok, I can browse tunes/albums but I get gap errors between tracks which is bothersome rather than a problem. All aac encoded (stop the flac flame now).

However, if I only enable the Twonky server and set the device profile to Sony Bravia for the kdl-46ex803, then I can browse the tunes/albums but it never sees any songs within the album dirs(folders), which I find odd.

Any ideas how to resolve this so that I can run Twonky, as it's a much neater service than the Qnap native one.

Twonky has two DNLA media Servers.

its own DNLA Media Server, which i suggest you ditch. the second is also built in but best to disable that, then goto App Center and search for Twonky. this can then be installed to 7.2.8 and is free from licencing,


Twonky Support for QNAP is over here: http://forum.qnap.com/viewforum.php?f=213

Despite installing the latest version of Twonky and setting the profile for the Sony TV, I continue to get the same issue of "There are no items to display" from the Sony TV when perusing. Any ideas?
