Hi All,

I'm new to all of this, but I'm really interested in opening up possibilities for my drive. It's such a shame it does now allow any real configuration and on top of that, the media server capabilities in which I am mainly interested don't work very well.

With this topic I hope to write down a guide on how to get access to the stock twonkymedia server and maybe how to upgrade this to a better/new one.

But I'm not that far yet... because I just started and have only gained telnet and root access using the terminal application on my macbook.
Using telnet I was able to install dropbear using the apt-get install command from the wiki.

My assumption now is that I would be able to access the drive using an SSH client (like Cyberduck for Mac). But unfortunately it does not accept the username and password.

So as a first step can anyone help me get access to the file system? Or am I doing something wrong already?

Thanks so much!

Hi thof!

Which user are you using to log through SSH?
Did you try both root and nascentral?

What multimedia features are you looking for?

I tried both root and nascentral with password ioadmin123, but these do not work.

For the mediaplayer features, I'm trying to use the disk in combination with my PS3, but all movies that I put on the drive (in PS3 playable format) are only seen partially. The PS3 is unable to play them completely and stops after 20 seconds or so.
I hope to improve this with a new or improved media server software (as a start).

You can still login via telnet? Can you find anything in /var/log/ which explains your inability to login via ssh?

The stock twonky server installation works fine with my PS3. I can watch series and movies (divx/xvid, mpeg2, m2ts) without this issue.
Sometimes there is some movie it can't play sound (surely not supported sound codec). And of course, the missing subtitles and MKV container support.

Maybe the problem is in your PS3. Did you try to play any content another DLNA server? I don't know if MacOS have installed some DLNA server.

Some time has passed and I was able to get the web access of the twonky media server to work.
For other starters a writeup:

Start telnet:
Code:
telnet [drive ip] 23


Press 'enter' when asked for password

Login with: nascentral:ioadmin123

After login is successful, type:
Code:
su


Hit enter and type the password: ioadmin123

You can now go to the twonkyvision folder by typing:
Code:
cd /usr/local/TwonkyVision


Make a backup of the current .ini file:
Code:
cp /usr/local/TwonkyVision/twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini  /usr/local/TwonkyVision/twonkyvision-mediaserver-backup.ini


Stop the media server:
Code:
/etc/init.d/twonky stop


Now copy the .ini file to an accessible folder on the network drive (for me movies)
Code:
cp /usr/local/TwonkyVision/twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini /nethdd/media/movies


Copy the file to your desktop and edit it with a text editor. Change the line "enableweb=0" to "enableweb=2"
Save the file and copy it back to the folder (in my case movies)

Now overwrite the existing .ini with the move command:
Code:
mv /nethdd/media/movies/twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini /usr/local/TwonkyVision/twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini


Now we only have to start the media server again with the command:
Code:
/etc/init.d/twonky start


Now the web configuration is accessible by going to http://[NAS IP]:9000

That's it! Next I want to get a different media server running, this twonkyvision thing is still not playing nice with my PS3... streaming from my computer is ok, but the same file on the nas just stops after 20 seconds or so

And I have tvmobili running now and this work perfect with my PS3!
Streaming full hd from the NAS is no problem anymore!

I contacted the support from tvmobili to receive the appropriate release.

If anyone wants to install tvmobili on their own box:

Telnet to the device, then:

Go to a location where you want to download the installation files to:
Code:
cd /usr/local/


Create new folder for tvmobili files:
Code:
mkdir tvmobili


Go to this folder:
Code:
cd ./tvmobili


Download files:
Code:
wget http://tvmobili.com/release-candidate/tvmobili-glibc2.5.0-linux-arm.tar.gz


Unpack:
Code:
tar -zxvf tvmobili-glibc2.5.0-linux-arm.tar.gz


Goto new folder:
Code:
cd ./tvmobili-generic-linux-arm_glibc_2.5.0-1.4.2830/


Install:
Code:
./setup.sh


Stop the twonky server:
Code:
/etc/init.d/twonky stop


Now you can go to http://NASIP:30888 and add media!

Hi,

I tried using your method, to install tvmobili. I followed the steps exactly as you described.

But i get the following errors:

When i first try to run the script "setup.sh", its gives me an error saying it cant find the file.
Quote:
root@Iomega-Sids:/usr/local/tvmobili# /tvmobili-generic-linux-arm_glibc_2.5.0-1.4.2830/setup.sh
bash: /tvmobili-generic-linux-arm_glibc_2.5.0-1.4.2830/setup.sh: No such file or directory

I fixed that by removing the slash in the begining.

But still, even after finding the file, it gave me a LOT of errors:

hmmm worked for me... maybe I forgot something in the writeup :shock:


What is in your unpacked folder?
Goto the folder:
Code:
cd /usr/local/tvmobili/tvmobili-generic-linux-arm_glibc_2.5.0-1.4.2830/

Check content:
Code:
ls


Are you logged in as root? Command 'su'?

Try starting the installer from inside the extracted folder with the command:
Code:
./setup.sh



Hope you get it working! I'm new to all of this too, I guess with some trial and error you should be able to get it done!

Hmm no sorry, I added "/nethdd/media/movies" and "/nethdd/media/music" and both are perfectly indexed.

What does the status screen say? There is a section "AT A GLANCE..." that shows the amount of music, video and pictures indexed.

Yes, it worked just fine in HOme Media CE!

But you have to use shared folders as /mnt/pools/A/A0/Movies insted of /nethd/Movies

Bye

It seems that at tvmobili netsite the install packages had been reorganized.

Can someone please write down, how to install with these new ones?
(I've tried some, but it's beyond my capabilities :) ).

Hi All,

Sorry to bring up this old post. I have an iOmega HMND from which I want to stream mkv (and all other formats) to my Sony Bravia DLNA tv.

I have installed tvmobili latest version from their website as the link above was not working, however, the latest version needs license which cost 65 bugs ( and i really don't want to pay 65 bugs for streaming few mkv movies)

Is there any other software available like tvmobili (or if I can upgrade Twonky to 7 that might support mkv) ?
Or if someone has the old version of tvmobili and can share the file that might not need the license?
Or if someone can be so kind to share the license key if they are not using it now?


Really thankful to those who can help.
