Does anyone have any experinece using Twonky with slim Devices products.
I use Twonky on a maxtor Shared storeage plus hard drive, this means i donot have to keep my computer on all the time, works ok with a denon AVR 4306 but i want to use another device elsewhere in the house. One other question does anyone have any experience using muliple slim devices for a simple multiroom system.

Thanks in advance

I don't.

Twonky uses UPnP - which is not supported by SlimServer and the SB.

Many of us do - I'm using a mixed environment of 1xSB3, 2xSB2, 2xSB1,
1xSliMP3.

Thanks Micheal
you seem very well informed, therefore i will ask is it possible to run The slim devices software on Maxtor Hard drive as i am not really that bothered about the software i use.

I haven't heard of that solution - and I don't have any experience with
any of these devices. The rule of thumb is pretty simple: if the device is
running Linux (which is very likely) _and_ you can get access to the
devices' Linux through a shell then it's technically conceivable. But
there are devices which are better explored than others. The Buffalo
Linkstation was one of the first to be hacked. Others report success with
the Linksys NSLU or Synology Diskstation. And there are now some solutions
sold commercially like the Qnap TS-101, which come with Slimserver support
installed. Search the forums for the latter - there's been a _lot_ of talk
about it.
