I've upgraded directly from V5 to V7 Special. Everything is fine and Twonky 7 is running OK with MP3 and photos, but I can't play normal video files formats on my Sony Bravia. It seems that nothing works with the Bravias... If any guy knows the solution, I will appreciate it so much.
I've purchased the Twonky 7 license, a bargain, but I can't see videos; only the TS format files.

after installing the version 7, my Samsung Smart TV disconnects constantly.
I did downgrade to version 6.0.39 (back to the passages) and everything has returned to work.
If you can help someone, here are the steps I did:
login ssh (ssh root@youripaddress - password: welc0me)
/etc/init.d/twonky stop cd /usr/local/twonkymedia-5 wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/6.0.39/twonky
media-powerpc-glibc-2.2.5-6.0.39.zip unzip twonkymedia-powerpc-glibc-2.2.5-6.0.39.zip (overwrite all) mv /usr/local/sbin/writeTwonkyContentDir.sh.old /usr/local/sbin/writeTwonkyContentDir.sh mv /etc/init.d/twonky.old /etc/init.d/twonky reboot

hey thanks for posting such quick and easy instructions for upgrading twonky to v6. i have been able to successfully upgrade my twonky server to 6.0.39 on my WD MBL but I still CANNOT view any mkv files on my samsung tv.
i have rebooted by MBL and twonky server. in the twonky and MBL web interface i can see that the version has changed to 6.0.38 but i continue to receive the "fill format not support error" everytime i try to open a MKV.
i then installed the v7 of twonky on my windows PC and can comfortably stream all fole formats from my PC however since all my media files are on the MBL i really need to be able to stream my mkvs from there. any idea what could be going on? I have a samsung D6600 which i able to see all files on my MBL so i know that the TV and twonky on MBL are talkking.

No need to change any config or anything. I suggest you upgrade the firmware and then retry with the method I posted earier for 6.0.39 in page 23. Unfortunately my MBL crashed and sent out for replacement hence I cannot test and provide a completely v7 instruction or test everything.

alright... will do that.. shall upgrade my MBL firmware. what prevented me from doing this so far was the fear of losing the feature pack and the applications it provided.. any idea if feature pack is supported by the latest MBL firmware?
