Installing Twonky on Seagate Personal Cloud

Postby sjkiss » Fri May 05, 2017 1:14 am

Hi: I confess I'm a noob, but I'm really at a loss. For the longest time I was using an old WD MyBookLive with Twonky 5. something to stream media to a DLNA device. It worked actually fine, except it was starting to get too slow for the size of the media library. So, I upgraded to a Seagate Personal Cloud NAS thinking I would like to take advantage of the Plex Media Server to stream to my new Denon HEOS. The speed improved, but there are some serious limitations here. 1) There is no capacity to make and play playslists on the HEOS! 2) Worse, the indexing by genre is terrible. You can't actually access compilation albums by genre. This wouldn't be so bad if 3) Plex didn't load the folder structure on my Denon HEOS app so slowly!!! It takes minutes to load all the folders!
So, I would like to figure out a way to use the seagate personal cloud for its speed, but install Twonky media server on it. Is this even possible? Thanks!

I have a Personal Cloud, not one of those devices. Those instructions won't actually don't help me enable ssh. And I checked with support; they won't admit that there is a way to enable ssh. I wonder if anybody would have any tips on doing it in an unauthorized way?

Linux station isn't compatible with the TAS-268. Not sure if that is because it is an Android version ..
