How about a forum just for /twonky/resources/clients.db entries so new devices can be recognized and/or setup to work correctly?
Then PVC could possibly include those entries in the clients.db file of future Twonky releases.
I see in the developer's forum a guy posted a link to a tool ("magpie") for interrogating DLNA responses from devices on your LAN - http://www.upnp-database.info
- but he didn't post anything specific there about the clients.db structure.
e.g. what are valid entries for the
DD: (device DLNA response?)
MT: (media transcoding?)
et al, fields in that file?
I assume for DD I need to put "OPPO PLAYER" - which is the response Oppo BD players return using that magpie tool... but once I get working descriptions for my devices I'd like to be able to share them here, and have others be able to find and put them to use.
We're unable to search for messages about the clients.db file here because even the Advanced search drops the period from the filename when used as a search term, then complains because "db" is less than 3 letters so the board refuses to search for it, while the other word (clients) is too general returning excess results. The only other message I happened across here incorrectly calls it "client.db" so I couldn't even search for it locally, because its actual name is "clients.db" in the 5.1.9 version on the MyBook World NAS boxes I have.
