Reboot of the MBL does affect how Twonky works. I've found that I have to do a reboot of MBL within 3 hrs prior to getting access from my AVR & listen to music for longer than 90 mins; or I can just disconnect the cat 5 cable from the router & then reconnect after the led goes into the "red".
Believe that MBL has a problem with the wait/listen part of the OS or Apache2. Haven't see any reports from others tho.
Anyway using SSH to send a reboot is much quicker than doing it from the Dashboard since one can exit when the terminal program is disconnected from MBL instead of waiting "forever" with the Dashboard running with the "do not close..."

The resources\devicedb\Philips\Philips Renderer TV.xml does not exist for Twonky 5.1.9 (only 6.x).
Is there a different location or value that can be changed alternatively to DLNANO -> DLNA15 for Twonky 5.1.9?
I would like to enable FF and Rewind without updating to 6.x!
TXH in advance for any help.

I've just installed Twonky 7.0.5 special on my WDMyBookLive and connected it to my Sony Bravia NX.
TV plays music and shows pictures but doesn't play ANY video. Niether .wmv, nor .avi, nor .mpeg, nor .mkv. When I navigate video folders using the TV, every video (avi, mkv, wmv) is displayed as mpeg. When I press play button, video opens and there is a black screen and nothing happens. TV doesn't hang when trying to play a video.
I've tried reinstalling Twonky but it gave no result.
Help me please!!!
P.S. web interface of MBL doesn't show any version of twonky running but mybooklive:9000 is working and my TV sees it.

Yes, you should find a folder called resources in twonkeymedia-5. There you find a file called clients.db. Open this file with pico and search for the Philips entry (the profile you are using in Twonky) and change from DLNAO to DLNA15. Now you should be able to FF and REW most of the files (but not all).

Link to download Twonky 7 archive: Twonky 7.0.5 Special for PowerPC architecture
I installed Twonky 7 using manual from MBL Wiki Forum
1) Connect to ssh using your MBL IP(login: root, password: welc0me)
2) Stop Twonky:
3) Create Twonky 7 directory:
4) Go in it :
5) Download actual version:
6) Unzip it:
7) Create directory use by twonky to store temp files:
8) Make executable for starting twonky
chmod a+x twonky.sh
9) start twonky
At this time you should have Twonky 7 working, go to http://yourip:9000 and change what you need (change share folder, client, language, enter your key if you have, etc…).
If you reboot your My Book, older twonky version start.
If all is working (make test before this step):
10) Change WD script to avoid the changement of Twonky parameters (share change to /) everytime you reboot :
mv /usr/local/sbin/writeTwonkyContentDir.sh /usr/local/sbin/writeTwonkyContentDir.sh.old
11) Backup old Twonky startup
mv /etc/init.d/twonky /etc/init.d/twonky.old
12) Make twonky.old nonexecutable:
chmod a-x twonky.old
13) Copy new startup
cp /usr/local/twonky/twonky.sh /etc/init.d/twonky
That's all !
