This guide should replace my earlier one for v.7.05 . It is vastly improved and as far as I can see has no more bugs. ColinTaylor's help has been substantial. Pcrespi has stress tested it. If any typos or bugs are spotted I will keep it updated.
It is quite ridiculous that we have to do all this for a company that is selling this product to NAS users. If you've never changed the stock twonky go straight to stage 3.

Stage 1 is only if you have previously installed v.6:

This involves deleting the twonky folders. BACK UP FIRST if you store media in them. This is easy as they are in your share - just copy and paste.

For non-raid:

Code:
# /etc/init.d/twonkymedia.sh stop
# rm -rf /mnt/disk1/share/twonky
# rm -rf /mnt/disk1/share/twonkymedia
# rm /etc/init.d/twonkymedia.sh
# rm /etc/rc.d/extensions.d/S91twonky.sh
# chmod 755 /etc/init.d/twonky.sh


or if installed on a raid array:
Code:
# /etc/init.d/twonkymedia.sh stop
# rm -rf /mnt/array1/share/twonky
# rm -rf /mnt/array1/share/twonkymedia
# rm /etc/init.d/twonkymedia.sh
# rm /etc/rc.d/extensions.d/S91twonky.sh
# chmod 755 /etc/init.d/twonky.sh


You are now back to the stock twonky.

Stage 2 is if you are running an older version of version 7 then either delete or back up your twonky directory:

Code:
# /etc/init.d/twonky.sh stop

# #### If you want to DELETE previous install
For non-raid: # rm -rf /mnt/disk1/share/twonky
For raid: # rm -rf /mnt/array1/share/twonky

# #### Or if you want to BACKUP previous install
For non-raid: # mv /mnt/disk1/share/twonky /mnt/disk1/share/twonky_old
For raid: # mv /mnt/array1/share/twonky /mnt/array1/share/twonky_old

# #### This should not be the stock script as you backed
# #### up the original twonky.sh when you installed v.7
# rm /etc/init.d/twonky.sh

# rm /etc/rc.d/extensions.d/S91twonky.sh


Stage 3 is the installation of Twonky Special 7.08

Disable the DNLA server in Buffalo web interface [Extensions/Media Server] if you've not already done so.
For newbies you need root access to your box. The easiest way is to install Shonk's firmware but the least invasive is to follow the various guides in this forum. You also need optware to use unzip. Installing optware is in the wiki.

Code:
# /etc/init.d/twonky.sh stop
# mv /etc/init.d/twonky.sh /etc/init.d/twonky.sh.old
# chmod -x /etc/init.d/twonky.sh.old
# mkdir /mnt/disk1/share/twonky #or for raid# mkdir /mnt/array1/share/twonky
# mkdir /mnt/disk1/share/twonky/twonkydb #or for raid# mkdir /mnt/array1/share/twonky/twonkydb
# cd /mnt/disk1/share/twonky #or for raid# cd /mnt/array1/share/twonky
# wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/7.0.8-Special/twonky-kirkwood-special-7.0.8.zip
# unzip twonky-kirkwood-special-7.0.8.zip
# rm twonky-kirkwood-special-7.0.8.zip
# chmod 755 twonkys* twonkyproxy twonkywebdav cgi-bin/* plugins/*
# mv twonkyserver-default.ini twonkyserver-default.ini.old
#############If you do not store your media in /share and its sub-directories you will have to edit twonkyserver-default.ini before the final command.##########
For non-raid: # wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5877837/7.08/twonkyserver-default.ini
For raid: # wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5877837/7.08/raid/twonkyserver-default.ini
# cd /etc/init.d
For non-raid: # wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5877837/7.08/twonky.sh
For raid: # wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5877837/7.08/raid/twonky.sh
# chmod +x twonky.sh
# /etc/init.d/twonky.sh start


If you have any need for twonkyproxy and twonkywebdav then edit twonky.sh so as to change the values at lines 8 and 10 from 0 to 1. Most users will have no need for these services.

If you have the rescan interval set to -1 in the web interface it will reduce the speed of file transfers to the NAS. On mine it is reduced by one third. I change it to 0 and rescan when I want to.

Well spotted!
Happy to change the formatting, I use a 24" monitor so I didn't realise.

Twonky Special 7.0.9 is out.
Quote:
What’s New in TwonkyServer v7.0.9

Bug fixes
· Fixed the ‘Autostart’ option for TwonkyServer
· Fixed a problem where Web UI of the server stops responding when attempting to load photo thumbnails
· Fixed a bug for broken web-browse when using Firefox
I've just installed it on the latest stock firmware (1.60) with no problems following the same instructions as 7.0.8.

Just substitute:

    http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/7.0.9-Special/twonky-kirkwood-special-7.0.9.zip

The twonkyserver-default.ini and twonky.sh files from 7.0.8 can be used unchanged.

Yes and No!

These instructions will turn off the Buffalo supplied version of Twonky and install 7.0.8 in a completely separate area of disk. If you later decide that you want to go back to the "Buffalo version" you only need to restore one file. HOWEVER, a prerequisite to installing 7.0.8 is that you must have enabled root access to your device. You will also need to buy a licence key from Twonky to make it work.

You say that you have version 4.4.19_e2. If you upgrade your firmware to the latest official version (1.60) it will upgrade the built-in Twonky to 6.0.42

Hi !

I'm using LS-QVL with 1.54mod1 shonk and Twonky 6.0.38
quite fine and play also MKV files well on Samsung TV
I got a questione because I would like to upgrade to 1.60mod1 and Twonky 7.0.9 but...some fear...and swetting cold...

1) I didn't need Optware when I installed Twonky 6.0.38, I didn't understand whether it is mandatory now and why, instructions for installing Twonky seem to be the same with some little corrections...Did I need to install Optware anyway ?

2) I did some manually fix as suggested in some trds in order to make Twonky in Autostart. It is not clear whether It is not needed to set it in autostart mode.
Do I need to set it manually again with s91twonky.sh file or just install Twonky and that's fine ?

Please need clarification before flashing and upgrading......
TIA ALL !!!

Hi fsa022,

1) You do not need to install optware if you already have /usr/bin/unzip

2) You do not need s91twonky.sh anymore. It will be deleted and replaced with a new version of /etc/init.d/twonky.sh. You do not need to fix the file for it to autostart.


I have not tested this on Shonk's firmware.


Updated: Clarified optware statement.

I am running Shonk's 1.60 Mod 1 on a LSL v1 - I assume that I just need to follow steps 1 & 3? Am I correct in thinking that the DLNA server that comes preinstalled with 1.60 Mod 1 is Twonky v6? I do not appear to have any Twonky folders in my /Share folder even though I am running the DLNA server on the Linkstation.

Thanks

Steps 1 and 2 are only for people that have upgraded Twonky previously using jackdaw's instructions.

If you are running the stock Buffalo firmware you only need to do step 3.

I don't use Shonk's firmware, but assuming that he hasn't changed the file names or locations from the Buffalo ones then step 3 should be all you need.

Thanks, that worked fine on Shonk's 1.60 Mod1 firmware. I had a couple of problems, firstly my "share" drive was called "Share" with a capital S which caused a few errors. Secondly, I could not download any of the files using SSH, it just gave an error message about the hostname. In the end I downloaded the files needed with Windows & copied them over with WinSCP.
