    Wink Merry Xmas: Open access to beta

    Beta is now accessible via the reven portal (yeah i need a better name...)

    the full installation instructions are there once you register an account (its easy and only a few clicks if using google or facebook authentication).

    keeping install instructions there as I formatted them and put up screenshots etc.

    Many thanks reven - your timing is impeccable - Sammy ordered yesterday as LG passed away.
    Even better, the John Lewis store price matched an excellent price and includes a 5 year warranty.

    These are the steps I used to setup a UN32F5500 (2013 32" TV):

    -First you sign in to the "develop" account

    Press the "MENU" button
    Select "SMART FEATURES"
    Select "SAMSUNG ACCOUNT"
    Select "LOG IN"
    Enter "develop" in the email box and leave the password box blank
    Select "LOG IN" at the bottom of the screen


    -Downloading NextPVR App

    Start the "SMART HUB"
    Go the "APPS" page
    Select "MORE APPS" at the bottom of the screen
    Select "OPTIONS" in the upper right corner
    Select "ENTER IP"
    Enter 203.86.201.68
    Select "START APP SYNC"

    Now you should see the NextPVR app when you go back to the APPS page.

    I needed to upgrade to 3.1.1 on the server computer before I was able to connect, but everything else was pretty straightforward.

    Thanks for releasing this into the wild. My wife thinks I'm a computer genius because of you & sub.

    Many thanks for this Reven. Apart from the Nshared issue with Ampersands in the channel name (reported here: http://forums.nextpvr.com/showthread...912#post467912), this works a treat and my Mrs (who suffers from arthritis) can use the NextPVR service rather than the Ndroid tablet client.

    Super stuff thanks.

    My UE40F5500 turned up this afternoon and your app installed and working well. I haven't given it a complete hammering, but initial impressions excellent.
    Menu navigation is blazingly fast.
    Many thanks reven.

    Installed successfully on my F5500. I was hoping to see a Live TV option. Please try to include it in your next release.

    When I ran the Samsung client, the menu option available was "Recordings". But, I did not try connecting to the new NPVR server, will it (LiveTV) only display once you connect to the server?

    I will try it again when I get home.
