    I appreciate the responses. I am no expert but I have been around the block a few times. I have opened the port in my router, as well as the firewall. The errors I have posted above (which may be hard to read due to their size) mention configuration errors in C:\Users\Public\NPVR\web\web.config line 59. I have no clue what it means though.
    The first screenie is when I run xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8866 from within my LAN. The second screenie is from when I run xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8866 from a connected hot-spot.
    What's odd, is that I have NPVR installed on one of my secondary PCs (client machine) and I have not opened any ports for that PC in neither the router nor Firewall. When I put that PC's IP xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8866 in the web browser, it connects (when run within my LAN).

    A stab in the dark ... Rename the Users\Public\Web folder so that NextPVR can't find it ... Rerun the installer but without doing an uninstall first ... this will install any missing files and leave everything else untouched. Re boot after the re-install to restart all of the logs and then try to connect from outside your local network using just one technique (for example, nlite) ... post your NextPVR logs. It is the NextPVR web.log that should show messages when nlite attempts to connect.

    Will try later this evening/weekend. Thanks.
    On a different note, I was able to access my UPnP on my work PC with Foobar2000 (about 2/3 down the page). Took a long time to load/start VLC, but videos played and seeked (is that a word) well.

    Edit:
    Using BubbleUPnP Tether Client seems to work much better. Once connected to the Tether Client, I open VLC (almost immediately), find my UPnP server, navigate to what I want to watch and it starts instantly, and is seekable as well. Very nice!

    I renamed C:\Users\Public\NPVR\web\web.config to webxxxx.config and entered xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8866 in my browser. As expected it did not work, but the error message was something completely different. I renamed the file back to web.config and tried the browser again and it works.

    It appears that I now have a multitude of options to view via the internet.
