gcw07, Tikuf and I have been working hard to bring back the NowTV Client in a way which doesn't involve the release of any source code.
 
With that, we have come up with a simple remote delivery solution.  All you'll need to do is open up a port on your router and have your external IP Address to hand.
 
 

OK, so we're happy its all working correctly.


You can find the installer at http://roku.gwscripts.com/


Follow the installation steps on that screen and let us know how you get on. :-D

I'm available ;)

Why port 443 though? Isn't that the SSL port ? Is that the most secure way?

There's not a developer's password on the Now TV box is there, only on true Rokus?

TIA.

Nope, no dev pass on NowTV Boxes but having it as an option on the form enables other users to install the software on their rokus if they choose to. :D

Ports are just a limit of gcw's host. We're working on getting that adjusted. You know what hosting companies can be like. As standard, most hosts block outbound ports for security but naturally have 80 and 443 open so we currently using those. We will probably offer 1 or 2 alternate ports to choose from.

 

The way I see it, and how i have been using it to date is I just switch 80 to the internal ip of my various now-tvs boxes and install for each one by one, then switch off/revert the port back.

I'm happy to help, new to NowTV as a cheap way to watch content in the bedroom. Would need to use 443 as I have port 80 setup for MB Server.

I've got 4 Live TV boxes in the house, currently using 1.17.

 

More than happy to help test a new client.

If you left your email we can notify you directly. The plan is to notify in this thread too. 

 

We debated if we should save the host names so we could push builds out but we decided against it (security was our major concern among other things).

Ensure you forward external port on your router to port 80 on your Roku/NOW TV box.
