Thanks for the replies. I've got Twonky up and running, and it appears nice, it looks like it provides much better Unpnp ability than the Synology media server. It isn't free, costs 20$ and has a 30 day evaluation. But it looks like it will be worth it, especially if you have a upnp/DLNA enabled TV, since it has specific configurations for a number of name brand models.
The follow outlines my install, this is a combination of the Linux-how-to.txt in the Twonky ZIP file, the above link by DerekCharles and my own input. These steps should work on any x86 Synology NAS - if it's not a x86 cpu you will have to figure out what package to get:
Shut down Synology media server
Logon into terminal session
Create a directory:
wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/6. ... .5-6.0.zip
chmod 700 twonkym* cgi-bin/* plugins/*
This will start the media server, but it's not ready to use yet. You need a few basic settings set that can be done via the built in web interface:http://NASserveraddress:9000/config
You will see a First Steps button - set the server name from here
Then click on the Sharing link to set the folders to use. Save the settings and restart Twonky from the web interface.
To make the server start at boot time create the file S99twonky.sh in the /usr/syno/etc/rc.d directory containing the line:
After creating the S99twonky.sh file give it the execute permission:
chmod 700 S99twonky.sh
One more setting you may need to set if you experience sporadic connections is to set the specific IP of the Twonky server - this sounds odd but by default it broadcasts to all subnets on server, including loopback (127.0.0.1):http://synologyIP.address:9000/rpc/set_ ... IP.address
I hope this helps anyone else wishing to use this.
