@Clive @Doishi I too feel a little unloved by Cisco. Yes they provide prompt responses, but never actually provide any useful information. e.g. Doishi says "There is a post in the community on how to enable transcoding on Twonky." Not even a link to point us in the right direction. Doishi also states "The purpose of this thread is to provide the user community a voice in determining add-on PKG application priority. While we have released some PKGs equivalent to our development partner, it is unlikely that we could devote the time to releasing and maintaining all of their applications. To be honest, not all of the applications are suitable for the Cisco partner/user base." 1. This thread has been established to determine what the Cisco partner / user base want for Add-on PKG. 2. When the Cisco user base state clearly what they want, the cisco user base are basically told to work out how to do it themselves. 3. I agree that not all applications are suitable for the cisco user base, but the ones that are requested in this thread clearly are! 4. Since this thread was started in Dec 2010, (6.5 months, not even 5% of the requests in this thread have been provided as PKG applications). I have been wanting to turn my NSS into a QNAP for quite sometime now, but didn't know if it was possible. What you have achieved will hopefully answer every request in this thread. Do you have a guide which you followed to backup the CISCO DOM, apply the QNAP DOM & Firmware etc... or are you able to prepare a step by step guide for us all in this forum. I am on the verge of sticking the NSS on eBay and changing for the QNAP. Thanks for anybody who can offer a helping hand.

Hi there, as a freelancer, I use this for both work and play... I really feel that it would be useful to enable installation of qnap qpkg applications. It's the same box after all??? What I would really like is the following packages: PS3 media server twonky media server - with licence for video transcoding and audio transcoding e.g. for MKV files A decent nzb application (nzbgetweb or similar) Do you really expect most of the world to know how to telnet / ssh, enable root access to install and run these applications? Do you really expect most of the world to want to create scripts / run these apps from the command line? I wouldnt call myself a non techy - in fact, i have a CCNA, but this is way beyond me. Maybe offer a bit of support on installing 3rd party applications and running them if you will not be providing a nice gui. Many thanks
