Thanks PeeBee,

looks like I'll have to disable the overnight sleep too then. Another reason, for disabling sleep is that the last 2 mornings I've found the shares mounted in Read Only. I've had to reboot for them to mount normally.

The reasons for going to 6.0.23?

a) I hadn't come across any reports of how well (or otherwise) version 6.0.30 works with LS Pro
b) I suspected that leaving the update till later would give me extra 30 day evaluation periods...

In the meantime I have tried some other media streamers but so far Twonky seems the best, and I also discovered that the key for my Pure Evoke Flow is actually Twonky I can't remember whether I read that on this forum, or on Twonky forums, but I can confirm that it works for me, so if 6.0.30 is recommended, I don't have any reason not to install it.

I had been using v6.0-RC4 for a while and my main problem with that version was that it ignored mkv files during a scan. That was fixed in 6.0.28 but no NAS builds were made available. They eventually released NAS builds for 6.0.30 and I have installed it today - initial impressions are favourable as it has scanned and found my mkv files. Georg found it to be a stable build - http://www.twonkyforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8913&p=33171#p33117.

Yes, twonky 6.0.30 seems to be stable, but the cache memory is *slowly* increasing. That *could* hint to a memory leak - or it might be an adaption to increase the server performance. If you regularly (e.g. once a week) restart the box or twonky it should be no problem.

It is true that an every restart twonky works on its database and the counters for music, pictures video start at 0. But (at least with my configuration) I've the impression that the scan is much faster than an initial scan. It seems that twonky only verifies if all the files are still there and doesn't build up the whole database again.

Hi,

I've just succesfully installed Twonky 6.0.30 on my linkstation live.

However I cannot work out how to get this to autostart an have to enter ./twonkymedia via the telnet window

Can anyone supply me some autostart code, and explain the command too

Many thanks

Bryan

Hi Brian

The installation script should have set this all up for you. In the folder /etc/init.d you should have a file called twonky containing:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
route add -net 224.0.0.0 netmask 240.0.0.0 dev eth0

cd /mnt/disk1/twonky
/mnt/disk1/twonky/twonkymedia &

This file should have permissions set to 755 and be owned by root.

This script file is called by an entry in the /etc/init.d/rcS file which needs to contain the line:

Code:
exec_sh twonky


I have it just after:

Code:
#fin.
exec_sh bootcomplete.sh


Twonky has a habit of putting a lot of files into the /var folder which is of limited size on the LS Pros and Lives so it is worth modifying the startup line in the twonky script file to read:

Code:
/mnt/disk1/twonky/twonkymedia -appdata /mnt/disk1/twonky &


If your installation folder is not /mnt/disk1/twonky then you will need to modify the above scripts to match your setup.

BTW, info on this can be found here - http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Two ... d_firmware

Regards

PB

Hello all -- thanks for this great thread. Though it seems most if not all of you are getting farther along in all of this than I am.

I have a new Linkstation Live, just bought last week, running 1.34. I have no idea what kind of media server is installed with this, but it works, and it seems OK. But I really want to get Twonky running on it instead.

I've tried the NAS Commander and it *seems* to work, but then I can't telnet into the NAS!

Here's what NAS Commander tells me:

Quote:
jlw2000$ java -jar acp_commander.jar -t 10.0.1.9 -o
ACP_commander out of the nas-central.org (linkstationwiki.net) project.
Used to send ACP-commands to Buffalo linkstation(R) LS-PRO.

WARNING: This is experimental software that might brick your linkstation!


Using random connID value = C5376DFFFC95
Using target: 10.0.1.9/10.0.1.9
Starting authentication procedure...
Sending Discover packet...
Found: LS-CHLC94 (/10.0.1.9) LS-CHL(YURYAKU) (ID=00018) mac: 00:24:A5:A5:DC:94 Firmware= 1.340 Key=656C419F
Trying to authenticate EnOneCmd... ACP_STATE_OK
start telnetd...
Reset root pwd...

You can now telnet to your box as user 'root' providing no / an empty password.




But then here's what I get back from Telnet...

Quote:
jlw2000$ telnet 10.0.1.9Trying 10.0.1.9...
telnet: connect to address 10.0.1.9: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host


Any thoughts? The Linkstation is connected to a switch which hangs off an Airport Express. My laptop is wireless, connected to the same Airport Extreme as the Airport Express.

Thanks!

Hi Everybody,

I have a LS-GL upgraded with a 2TB Disk. Twonky 5,0xx beta was running fine, but while upgrading Twonky to 6.0xx I have major problems.

I have telnet- and FTP-acces to the Linkstation and also installed wpget via the addons.tar, but it seems, that wget isn't working.

When I run the "nassetup.exe" installer on my PC (Win7/64), I get the following log in teh installer window:

Image
Image

Is it the wget or anything else?
How could I check, if wget is working properly?

btw: disk2 is right and the folder mnt/disk2/twonky exists with 777

Thanks upfront for your support ;-)

Code:
which wget

should give you the path to the wget executable.
If not, you have to search for wget on your box:
Code:
find / -name wget

If this returns nothing, you do NOT have wget available.

Hi guys,

I have bought a LinkStation™ Duo LS-WXL/R1 (4TB).

Using my sony bravia TV, I can browse the media server and I can see the photo (really not all ...) but I have problem to reproduce mkv files (when I browse the server from from the TV I can't find the mkv file) so I would like to install Twonky.

I have updated my firmware to the latest version (1.56) http://www.buffalotech.com/support/downloads/linkstation-duo-ls-wxlr1/.

Can I foolow the procedure you mentioned in this thread to install Twonky? Witch Twonky version do you suggest?

First problem I have I can't connect with telnet

Code:
C:\Users\nicpp\Desktop\TWONKY>java -jar acp_commander.jar -t 192.168
.20.3 -o -addons
ACP_commander out of the nas-central.org (linkstationwiki.net) project.
Used to send ACP-commands to Buffalo linkstation(R) LS-PRO.

WARNING: This is experimental software that might brick your linkstation!

Any idea why?

Thanks in advance

Inspite I have this

Code:
Untaring complete, you can review the log in
//192.168.20.3/share/acp_commander/untar.log


If I look to //192.168.20.3/share/acp_commander/ here I have only the file addons.tar. This is what I see from my windows 7.

What can be the problem?

First problem, you donn't have a Orion5 based LS Pro/Live due to the
fact you could update to 1.56.
1.56 is only available for Kirkwood based boxes.
The "problems" with telnet/ssh and Kirkwood based boxes are well
known and documented.
Use the forums search for this please.

Ok thanks a lot,

I will follow the instuinctions I found here http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Category:LS-WXL to gain ssh access.

After that, can I install twonky to see my mkv files?

The procedure to install twonky, is it the same described at the begin of this thread?

Thanks a lot
