Hello,

Does anyone know if it is possible to hook up the philips sl50i with the wl500g?
I wanna put my music on a usb stick and attatch it too the wl500g and then play the music with the sl50i. To let it work with the pc there needs to be software installed for a upnp server, on this site u can find the software:
http://www.twonkyvision.de/UPnP/download-trial.html

I hope someone can take a look at it and tell me if its possible to make it work with the wl500g. Thanks for ur time

Yes, this is possible.

There is also a free opensource alternative to Twonkyvision:

thanks for ur fast replie. I wonder if its difficult to get it to work on the
wl500g, can u tell me maybe how i get the software running on the wl500g?
I looked a little more on the http://www.twonkyvision.de/UPnP/download-trial.html site and found software for the wl-hdd i wonder if i can use same software for my wl500g:

The ASUS WLAN-HDD 2.5 runs the Linux Operating System
based on a BCM4710 processor (MIPS little endian).

We use custom firmware to install twonkymedia.

Here are the details:
---------------------

1) Upgrade to custom firmware 1.9.2.7 or higher from e.g.
http://website.wl500g.info/beta/wizard.php?brand=1
or
http://wl500g.info/forumdisplay.php?f=78

Open a browser and enter the following URL http://192.168.1.220. This is
the default IP address of a brand new machine, but may be different to
yours. Press "System Setting" and then "Firmware Upgrade" and follow the
given instructions.

2) Unzip all files to a local directory on the PC and run NASSetup.exe


3) Define an initial script, which runs after every reboot:
Open a browser and enter the following URL http://192.168.1.220. Press "USB
Application" then "FTP Server". Set the "Initial Script" field to
"init.sh". Press "Apply" to save your changes. Press "Finish" and then
"Save&Restart".

twonkymedia will start automatically and can be customized
through http://192.168.1.220:9000

will this work with wl500g? or is it better to use GMedia server

Yes, you can use the WL-500G Deluxe. It makes no difference :-)

Only small difference in the instructions above, is that the WL500G (and 500B) uses 192.168.1.1 as Factory Default ip instead of 192.168.1.220

Thanks a lot for ur help i followed the toturial for the wl-hdd i posted, with the other ip adres and it worked!!:) I have twonkyvision running now on my WL500g. Now there are 2 things i wanna know.
- on the webpage it says: TwonkyMedia Trial Version Configuration, so its a trail version, will it keep working or will it stop after some time?
- I would like to know for sure if the philips SL50i will work together with
twonkyvision before i buy it.

The trial version only runs for 30 or 60 mins, then stops (can remember if it is 30 or 60).

Phillips SL50i is listed here:
http://twonkymedia.com/UPnP/devices.html

It will also work with gmediaserver - as both servers use the standard UPnP media protocol.
