    Hey folks !
    I've been playing and using the little box for a week now, and I've discovered some software that allows you to install/add Transmission torrent client (the latest version + new web interface) and SSH...among other programs on it. It works great!
    It's even possible to change the background picture and a couple more things.
    I thought I'd let you know !
    It's easy to do it, use the installer at : http://www.networkedmediatank.com/showthread.php?tid=13161

    Question to Nathan@Nanopoint : does this void warranty, or is it OK ?
    (it might be too late for mine...)

    Hi g3n3tiX

    Thanks for the post.

    Installing and upgrading the firmware which is not listed on Raidsonics website i'm sure will void warranty, however if you expereinced problems then you could change back to the firmwares offered by Raidsonic. I would not expect this to render the unit un-serviceable because tehse devices do promote open soure useage and development.

    Hey !
    In fact the software I posted does not change the firmware : it simply installs the needed files on the HDD and adds a script to launch them instead of the firmware-loaded apps : that results in a clean approach that keeps the firmware intact.
    And as you said it's always possible (except in "bricked" situations) to easily reinstall the default firmware.
