You need to copy the file “audionas_ha_n1_updater.bin” to the USB stick without unzipping it.

Yep, done that - still doesn't recognise it. I'll maybe try a different stick.

EDIT - Yes, that worked! Found an ancient 128MB one in the drawer, formatted it as EX-FAT, bingo! Weird...

Thanks for your patience.

RE: Latest Melco firmware allows Twonky switch off
I have used Simon’s method for turning off Twonky.

I know this keeps Twonky off after a reboot and I think may stop is starting.

Does the Melco method keep Twonky off after a reboot and stop it ever starting

Is one method “better” ?

Thanks, Peter

RE: Latest Melco firmware allows Twonky switch off
Using the Melco front-panel setting is better because:

1) It stops Twonky immediately if it is running, without requiring a power cycle of the N1

2) It allows Twonky to be restarted at any time, without requiring a power cycle of the N1

3) It is simpler for users than needing to edit a text file

4) It is officially supported by Melco and doesn't require the use of undocumented interfaces that may change in future firmware releases

I am planning to remove the MinimServer mechanism when most users have moved up to firmware level 3.70 or above.

Thanks Simon. I will remove the edit from the options file.

Edit: now done. Can confirm that Twonky stays off after a reboot of the Melco. Note the option to switch Twonky off is only in 3.71b and not 3.70
