Re: TwonkyServer Revision History

Thank you phibertron for keeping the list and links updated! I downloaded 7.3-RC4 last week and installed in on my linkstation pro dedicated for testing.

Re: How to show active connections without web gui ?

You could try to write a script which evaluates the answers on

http://<ip>:<port>/rpc/stream_active
http://<ip>:<port>/rpc/stream_info

The fist should give you the number of active streams, which should be sufficient for your needs.

On your config screen aggregation should be the first item within "advanced setup". If it's not there... maybe switching to the english interface (if you're not already there) helps, or a restart (which you might have tried already)....

Re: Pictures are slow on Xbox

I'd suspect that the speed of your WD causes the slow rescaling. Those devices aren't too powerful, but by design DLNA leaves rescaling etc. to the server. With these network attached hard discs in most cases the client is more powerful. The good message is that you can reconfigure twonky to leave r...
