Re: Twonky does not see/serve .m4a files [SOLVED]

In short, my mistake. BBC tagging uses tags not used by me so I didn't look in right place. Problem solved and Twonky is working well.

Twonky does not see/serve .m4a files

Hi, Recent BBC radio broadcast downloads have been appearing as .m4a files. As usual I have been transferring them to my NAS (Qnap TS219 Pro II) which is running QPKG version of Twonky 6.0.39. Unfortunately Twonky does not appear to see or serve these files. I thought it was a tagging problem but al...

Is there a special Twonky syntax for Composer Tag?

Using latest QPKG version of Twonky on Qnap NAS with Briain's trees. I ask the question because, in my last ripping and tagging session, I thought it would be a neat addition to the Composer tag to include the life of the composer so, for a couple of CDs, I tagged composer thus: Vivaldi, Antonio (16...

Re: Recommended Devices List

Three questions:-
1.Do Dune HD devices work with Twonky streaming from NAS?
2.If yes do flac files work?
3. When will this list be consolidated and updated. Been a long time since it was started.

Hi Briain,
Thanks for the reply. My concern is the apparent creep of data associated with the embedded twonky over to the qpkg version. This should not happen but I had reached the same conclusion as you. Will go in and sort it out when I have time.
