    Oh, a bit late, but if a tool for Windows is sufficient, I can only recommend Total Commander, for which a DEB-plugin exists. Very comfortable, it allows browsing of DEBs and even included archives as if they were folders.

    Or directly on the TeraStation: Midnight Commander for Linux (& more) allows to browse .deb files as well. There’s even a tutorial on how to install MC on the TeraStation on the TS wiki, written by myself 😉
    No dev tools needed, just download packages, convert and install them. “Alternative” and “Installation” on that list should be the sufficient steps.

    Just to add a few other methods to your deb-browsing list 😉

    Either I’m doning something really stupid or there are issues with the nightly I’m using and the Home Server varient of the Terastation becuase I had to re-install the firmware again yesterday. Could this be anything to do with the fact that it already running a music server (PCast?)

    Can anybody suggest which is the most stable version of mt-daapd to use in my situation?

    Thanks

    Well, as I already posted somewhere I think, the hacked TeraStation version (opened SSH) never ran very stable for me (not the Home edition, no PCast imho), that’s why I switched my music server over to a Kurobox, and went back to the fully official firmware. In my case though, stability was unrelated to mt-daapd.

    I wish there would be a simpler way to install Debian on the TS 🙁
