    I upgraded twonky to 5.1 which seemd to be alot quicker.


    I extracted the Twonky files to a NTSF partition and copied the files with winscp to /harddisk/volume_1/data/rc.d/twonky.

    Did a /etc/rc.d/rc.reboot and the system rebooted correctly.

    I could then run <ip>:9000 and I setup my shares and did a server restart followed by a turn off media server save and turn on media server save in the Linksys setup.

    I could then use <ip>:9000 and it scanned all my media.

    After about 5 minutes after scanning media complete the <ip>:9000 fails to connect so does the linksys setup, putty and winscp, but pings OK

    Unable to turn the NAS off unless the power plug is pulled (which I hate doing).

    Any ideas?

    I haven't tried Twonky 5.1 yet. I didn't know it existed and I don't see it on the Twonky download page. Is it a beta? That might explain it.

    I know that if you can connect to port 9000 you installed it correctly and it's running. I also know that Twonky uses a lot of memory and CPU especially while it's scanning the database (you will see many processes running). It slows the box down significantly so you may have to wait longer, and it's possible that a web browser would time out waiting for the web server to respond. If that's the problem I don't think there's anything anyone can do about it...

    Yes its beta downloaded from the forum.

    I thought the NAS could be running flat out hence the issue. I do have around 12,000 files of various types on two 1tb drives so I will wait for a day or 2 and revert back to a stable version and will post results.

    Thanks Jac great firmware.
