Better resolution for folder images

Post by seba » Thu Jan 19, 2012 8:33 pm

It seems that TwonkyServer is scaling down all folder images to very small thumbnails. Is it possible to increase the scale or turn on bilinear scaling at least? Right now when I'm browsing the files using tablet I get icons resized to larger size and it is not looking good.

Here's one suggestion. Someone else might have a better one.

Sometimes TwonkyServer doesn't correctly identify devices and loads a generic device profile. In some cases this can result in thumbnails being displayed -- instead of the full-sized photos.

Possible Solutions
1. Go to the server settings pages and click on the Media Receivers link. Locate your device in the list and try changing it to another profile. If there is a profile in the list from the same company as your device, try that. If not, try other device profiles. Some have reported that changing this to Xbox solved their thumbnails problems.
2. Locate the clients.db file and try changing the "TR:"-line to "TR:JPEG1920x1080,JPEG138x103,MP3,WAV,WMV"
(put the higher HD resolution in front of the lower resolution). Some who did this say they are now seeing full screen pictures.
