OK finally worked it out myself - just thought I'd post here in case anyone else is having trouble with BASIC linux stuff lol
The way I did it is typed in these commands
cat > ushare.config
# Edit this file with 'dpkg-reconfigure ushare'
# Configuration file for uShare
# uShare UPnP Friendly Name (default is 'uShare').
# Interface to listen to (default is eth0).
# Ex : USHARE_IFACE=eth1
# Port to listen to (default is random from IANA Dynamic Ports range)
# Ex : USHARE_PORT=49200
# Port to listen for Telnet connections
# Ex : USHARE_TELNET_PORT=1337
# Directories to be shared (space or CSV list).
# Ex: USHARE_DIR=/dir1,/dir2
# Use to override what happens when iconv fails to parse a file name.
# The default uShare behaviour is to not add the entry in the media list
# This option overrides that behaviour and adds the non-iconv'ed string into
# the media list, with the assumption that the renderer will be able to
# handle it. Devices like Noxon 2 have no problem with strings being passed
# as is. (Umlauts for all!)
# Options are TRUE/YES/1 for override and anything else for default behaviour
# Enable Web interface (yes/no)
# Enable Telnet control interface (yes/no)
# Use XboX 360 compatibility mode (yes/no)
# Use DLNA profile (yes/no)
# This is needed for PlayStation3 to work (among other devices)
>>>>>> THEN PRESS CONTROL + D to save the file
Now type /etc/init.d/ushare start
So I finally got there after 3 days of pulling my hair out.
I now have a working media server on my TS Pro and need to buy a hair piece for my slaphead
