    NLite windows build

    NLite is an open source client for NextPVR, which I've experimented with over the last couple of months. It shows the same user NextPVR user interface you're used to, but uses VLC components for playback. It's very experimental at this stage, if you'd like to try it out, I'd appreciate any feedback on how you get on.

    You can download a Windows build from http://www.nextpvr.com/nlite-win32.zip

    I'd recommend updating your nextpvr.exe to the own attached.

    Sub, do you mind putting the source on github?

    Yeah sure, it'll probably be a bit later today or tomorrow. I'd like to tidy up the directory structure and project files first, so that the same source tree can be used for building for Windows, Linux and Mac. It'd be better have this sorted before it putting it on github.

    Thanks sub, at least it is your repo so you will get to accept and reject pull requests.

    True

    I'd prefer to not get it entirely wrong first time though, and have to move all the files around.

    I upgraded my server to current version, copied over the nextpvr.exe file and unzipped the nlite zip file to a temp directory on my client.
    ran nlite.exe and I just get a black box on screen (looks like a command prompt box) with a blinking cursor in the top left.

    No sign of any config to do or any logs.

    If you run it from a command prompt, do you see any output?

    I assume your NextPVR webserver is functional? ie, can see the home page at http://<ipaddress>:8866 in your web browser?

    Nope, cursor just drops to the next line. Ctrl-C gets the prompt back.

    Yup, takes a while initially, but then runs fine.

    Does it make any difference if you run:

    nlite.exe -server:<ipaddress>:8866:0000

    Sorry, same, just cursor on next line. (I removed the <> as error with them).
