I just bought a LS-WVL. Firmware 1.58. I don't see any mentioning or presence of Twonky on this device, so here is the stupid question: does a LS-WVL have this Twonky-thing and where is it / how to use it...?
Thanks in advance if someone get me on the right track.
Yes it does, it is the software used to control the media server on the unit.
Thanks for the info.
But how can one tell which version is installed?
And how can one update (if needed)?
In my unit I don't see the 'Update DTCP-IP' in the web-management (as described in the 'media server update procedure')....
Firmware is 1.58.
Sorry to reply on my own message.
But (after finding out about Twonky is on port 9050 and how to re-enable that port in Firefox...) I found out this rather strange behaviour of LS firmware "updates and downgrades": I had firmware 1.58 installed, but there was no option for DTCP-IP-updates (which, some readme-file o,n the Buffalo-site tells me, also will update the Twonky server).
So I forced a downgrade to firmware 1.57. Tried the DTCP-IP update: keeps saying "downloading" until an error-message pops up 'connect to the internet' (there is another thread about that I saw, so I had to stop trying.Connection to the internet is 100% fine.)
But now I have Twonky 6.0.42-dev.
I re-updated the firmware to 1.58. DTCP-IP entry is missing again, and... Twonky server is back to 4.4.19, the "very old" one, with less capabilities.
I thought buying this Buffalo LS Duo Pro was clever, but I start feeling regret I did. What the * is this when firmware updates do downgrades and downgrades do (partial) updates. And reading all the "good news" about firmware version 1.60 (which should be removed from the site, a Buffalo spokesman seems to have said, but is still there and seems unable to play .AVIs)....
I've seen and handled a load of bad hardware and loust firmware, and I hoped Buffalo would do better (because I read some good reviews about these NASs, but I better had found this forum before buying).
I hope Buffalo gets things right with a next firmware. Soon.
(I have a LS-WVL Pro Duo 2TB, Windows 7 64bit, never tried the torrent-squeezbox-iTunes-stuff so I can't comment on those. I just want a reliable DLNA-compliant media-server to stream some video/music/photos).
