Which Media Server for WDTV Live?
I finally got off the fence and bought this puppy from NCIX, along with the Belkin 200 Mbps Powerline AV kit. Excellent delivery experience, no setup problems, automatic firmware upgrade, plays all my media on a connected USB drive. Five stars.
Now for my small problem.
For some unknown reason, my Windows XP desktop, with 640 GB storage, where I download my videos, REFUSES to share to other PCs on my home LAN.
To ease this problem, I installed Twonky Media Manager on my XP PC, and now the WDTV Live can see the media on my XP PC, neatly organized by Twonky.
But Twonky isn't free. $46 - but they offer 50% off 'til 31 Dec.
So, is Twonky worth the cost, or do TVersity and XBMC offer equivalent or additional features I should check out?
