Twonky on FSC AMS150: External Application is missing!

Hi, does anybody know, why in the Twonky Version 4.4.5 for the AMS150 the option for external applications is missing?

Look in the twonky\resources folder for the file config-menu.html. Open it and look for the following html code:

Code: Select all

<p class="menuGroup">&nbsp;<script type="text/javascript">document.write(translateOption("advancedsetup"))</script></p>

	<ul>
		<li><a href="javascript:optionsShow(4,false)"><script type="text/javascript">document.write(translateOption("3rdparty"))</script></a></li>
		<li><a href="javascript:optionsShow(5,false)"><script type="text/javascript">document.write(translateOption("naming"))</script></a></li>
		<li><a href="javascript:optionsShow(6,false)"><script type="text/javascript">document.write(translateOption("musictree"))</script></a></li>
		<li><a href="javascript:optionsShow(7,false)"><script type="text/javascript">document.write(translateOption("picturetree"))</script></a></li>
		<li><a href="javascript:optionsShow(8,false)"><script type="text/javascript">document.write(translateOption("videotree"))</script></a></li>
		<li><a href="javascript:optionsShow(9,false)"><script type="text/javascript">document.write(translateOption("network"))</script></a></li>
		<li><a href="javascript:optionsShow(11,false)"><script type="text/javascript">document.write(translateOption("miscellaneous"))</script></a></li>
	</ul>
The first <li>entry is the line for the External Applications menu item. Do you have this line or has it been removed/commented out? I would be wary of putting it back in if it's not there in case there is a reason why it has been removed for your NAS.

Thanks for your answer. I have attached a picture of the section in the config-menu.html file you mentioned. As far as I can see this with my noob eyes, the entry for the external applications has been removed in this twonky version :-(
But why?

Edit: I still don't know why, but with help from the Fujitsu-Forum I managed to get the external applications-entry "back" (simply by inserting the missing lines in the config-menu.html file). Now I wanted to show twonky the path to my photoshop album catalog but the path to the .psa-file disappears after saving the changes in the webbrowser frontend. I then had a look at the mediaserver.ini and I noticed that there is no entry for the path to the photoshop album catalog file, for the itunes database file the entry in the .ini exists. What does this mean? Can I simply insert the path and if I can do so, how has the .ini entry have to look like? Or does it not work with the FSC-Twonky-version?

Edit2: I inserted "adobepath=/mnt/Foto/PSA-Katalog.psa" into the mediaserver.ini file, but nothing happened :-(
Does anybody know whether there are further possibilities to integrate the PSA-file into Twonky?
