    NextPVR iOS app - PLEASE READ

    Overview
    This sticky thread will cover any frequently asked questions on the iOS apps, and will be updated as more info comes to hand.

    This client application is available in the app store in all regions, at a cost of US$6.99. This fee will help me pay for the cost of hardware I purchased for the development and testing of this application, and for the membership in the Apple developer program.

    Support
    Please post any support threads here in the 'NextPVR iOS Client' forum. When posting, please let us know what device you're using, and a clear description of the problem you're seeing. This is also the right place to post feature suggestions for the iOS apps.

    This is a very new application, and I'm sure it's not flawless, but I will be actively working to resolve any issues that are found, and will be providing regular updates. Apple also provides me crash dumps, to assist in resolving any unexpected application crashes. (Make sure you give me a chance to resolve any issues before rating the app on the App Store )


    Requirements
    This client application requires NextPVR v3.7.7 or above.

    FAQ
    The video shows the application auto detecting the server and starting automatically - if I've got multiple servers, can I choose between them? If only one server is detected, it'll auto logon and jump to the channels screen. If multiple servers are detected, it'll show the list and let you choose between them.

    Can I manually add a server, so I can remotely access it when I'm away from home? Yes. There is a trick to manually adding a server though, since it usually automatically logs on - briefly stop the NextPVR Recording Service, then start the app on your phone. You'll now be able to hit the 'add' button to enter the details of your server. You can use an IP address or domain name. You can then restart the Recording Service. From then on, the server will be listed each time you start the app.

    Can I resume playback of a recording? Yes. Like NextPVR's Recording details screen on the PC, it'll show a green line next shows that you have partially watched. If you do a long press on a show, it'll pop up a context menu with other options (Play/Resume/Delete) to perform on that show.

    Are channel groups supported? Yes. On the top-right of the Channels tab, you click the group button to chose between 'All Channels' and any custom channel groups you've defined. This selection will also apply to the TV Guide tab, and will be remembered between runs of the application.

    Here is a video giving a brief overview of the application on an iPhone.
