    NLite Unable to find and connect to a NextPVR server.

    Re the NLite client, Sub wrote: To run it, simply extract into a directory somewhere onto your machine, and run the nlite.exe executable. It'll auto locate and connect to your NextPVR server running on the local network.

    Either by switch or a config setting, is there a way to just tell nlite.exe where the server is?

    I ask because it only works on the NextPVR host PC. If I run it from any other PC on my network it does not find it.
    Am I missing something, or is there a setting somewhere in NextPVR that has to be set first?

    * As a side note, NEWA is easily found using port 8866 on all of my PC's

    Below is the message I get when run from a PC on the same network.

    Checking configuration

    nlite -server 111.222.111.222:8866:0000

    Replace "111.222.111.222" with the ip address or name of your server. This works remotely, too, assuming you have your network and other settings correct.
    Replace "8866" with the port you use if you do not use the default.
    Replace "0000" with the pin you use if you do not use the default.
    Tuners: Ceton InfiniTV quad cable card tuner (PCIe). SD HDHR Connect Quatro Tuner (HDHR5-4US). Use only QAM on HDHR. HDPVR - for Fox owned channels.
    Viewing: Usually an NMT connected via MoCA. Sometimes directly on the server below. Sometimes when I travel I use an NMT served from my laptop with a portable hard-drive.
    EPG: XML from SchedulesDirect via MC2XML
    Provider: Verizon Fios
    Server: Dell XPS 8700 with Windows 8.1

    Thanks! The command line switch worked perfectly.

    I had problems in the early days when I had virtual network interfaces, sub did some magic and it worked fine. ISTR it was trying to connect via an interface who's IP address was not on the NPVR servers network address range.
