Setting up Streaming to xbox 360 - Not working
I am very fustrated with Patriot - Corza because of lack of documentation for features. I am a experienced user who needs details on getting streaming setup on an xbox 360. As I expected I got what I paid for. My other NAS (Synology) has great documentation and excellent user forums. Looks like I will be returning my NAS and paying more money for something that works. I already contacted support directly with no real answers. I will repeat what I said before.
Connected to wireless router. Already upgraded to latest firmware. XBOX 360 purchased recently 2 month ago. Streaming feature already working on a Synology and also using Tversity. Sent email to support and they told me it can work. I NEED DOCUMENTATION.
1. What folders are shared
2. Any changes to router to set this up
3. Any setup in Corza to get this working (firmware upgrade)
I would love to tell others about this inexpensive NAS unit but right now I am afraid it will be sent back.

Do you have the latest Xbox 360 firmware upgrade? Just wonderin' ?
I am connected to xbox live so any updates are normally done automatically. If there is a manual process then please let me know.

1) Update to the latest firmware (Patriot v1.5).
2) Install Torrent software (TorrentFlux v1.142B)
3) Install UPnP software (UPnP.bz2).
Xbox 360 upnp streaming now working
Thanks for the tip. The xbox is now seeing the Corza box and I was able to stream music haven't tried a movie yet.(I'll post my result later). As I suspected this linux box needed the proper software installed to get this to work. Remember if the link doesn't work just do a search for UPnP.bz2 and you will find it. A note about the software, default password is admin. The software is well setup and you can share any directory that you want. Just tell the software. Good work Aaron R. Also a note that bittorrent downloads were failing after the upgrades to new firmware. Make sure that the python folder has been defined otherwise it will not work.
Login -> Admin -> Settings
Look for the field where you specify "Python Path". It probably has a red dot. Change it from "/usr/bin/python" to "/usr/local/bin/python".
Thanks onosqv for the tip.
This inexpensive NAS box now does all of the main items that I wanted.
1. File sharing
2. Upnp streaming
3. USB printing
4. FTP to box
1. Web file sharing
2. ssh to box
1. Slow SMB transfer ( It has been getting slower don't know why)
Get your documentation in order. Fix these issues quick and when answering user questions don't just give quick one liners. Your users are reading them and we know if what you say is just BS. The box is a cheap simple NAS that does what I wanted. I can now recommend this to others around me.
Are you running torrents & other services at the same time? I'm starting to think it's a hardware limiting factor (CPU & Memory) rather than a setup/software issue w/ the Corza. I tried to find specs but couldn't get any regarding the speed & ram on the Corza.

Reading a review online they said that the
256 mb and 400 mhz
This is no speed demon so don't expect fast transfers or multitasking. In comparison my friends synology 109 uses a 1 ghz proc. It also has far better software support (synology) than just about any consumer NAS out there. But you have to pay for this.
To be fair at the price point that they are selling the device it was designed to do a few of the most important features and that is all. If you want more you will need to spend more money. Out of the box Corza was doing 9 to 10 mb Transfers. This was on my 100 mb switch. After turning on itunes server it slowed down to 6 mb. I don't even want to see where it goes with UPNP and bittorrent now turned on. I did expect some slow down. As long as it streams smoothly and handle my bittorrents i'm happy. I really haven't put it through a good workout so can't say how it will do. Guess that is for a future post.
I have installed upnp.bz2 successfully....but am unable to login to the software via the Corza Webgui...I've tried user id "admin" & password "admin" but the login screen just redisplays.....Can anyone give me a hint what might be wrong? Am I using the correct userid/password?
Also once I installed the upnp.bz2 software my Sony PS3 does find the media server and detects the avi files I have saved onto the corza-nas....I have found that the avi's do play for a few minutes and then the PS3 reports the files to be corrupt...(I can play them on my PC without issue). Any hints what I could do to get this to work reliably?

Yes the Corza is running firmware v1.5 and TorrentFlux is v1.142B. Not sure whether this helps but the Corza has 2 1.5tb Seagate HDD's configured in a Raid 0 configuration.
