Re: Twonky MediaServer web Config and Shoutcast
- I am using the full version 2.6 on my LinkStation. It has a very small
footprint which is nice. The bad thing is that it does not work well
with Netgear MP101. Every now and then the song that currently plays
will stop and the next song will start after 20-30 secs of silence --
kind of kills the mood if you are partying. The problem is specific to
the MP101 (I also have a Linksys player that plays almost perfect with
the Twonky server) and has been out there since at least version 2.4.
So far, TwonkyVision has given a bunch of lame excuses for not fixing
it (TCP/IP stack of MP101 not compatible with Linux, etc.), you can
check for more info on www.media-servers.com.
My point is you can save yourself $20 and some dissapointment if you
use the MP101.
