- Hi, so I just picked up a LinkStation 250 (note for UK buyers -
Staples are currently selling them for £180, which is way cheaper
I've seen online) and started reading up on root access. Then of
course I discovered that this doesn't seem to be possible with a new
box that ships with v2 software. Does anyone have any new information
on this? Or any other plans on how to get access to one of these
It shipped with 2.0, I tried installing the 2.04 release from the ftp
site and that added PCast support but no other noticeable difference.
My main purpose for buying this was so I could stick TwonkyVision on
it and have a nice standalone media server - still more storage is
always useful I guess.
It's a shame that the PCast server isn't actually a UPNP AV server
itself really which of course would solve my problem.
