Re: Is NowTV available as a download for Nvidia Shield Set Top Box ?

Unfortunately, doesn't work for me, just left with a screen saying ready to cast and the little blobs going around on my phone/tablet. Tried to cast from 2 devices, the same thing happens on both...

@Lunnbow

 

This may not be applicable to your setup, but if you are using a BT Router then make sure the smart setup feature on the Router is disabled.

 

Here's a link with instructions on how to switch off smart setup on BT Routers.

Obviously ignore this post if you are using a different branded Router, but the above information may come in useful for BT customers having problems casting.

Cheers, but no, we don't use a BT router, would not be able to take the load and number of devices in my house. Thanks though!

This should work Via Chromecast, i've done it myself. However sideloaidng won't work at all, although i did manage to get BT Sports working via Sideload over a year ago. The NOW TV app will actually load but once you go to play something you'll get an error. I'll try and get it set up for Chromecast tonight when i'm back from work and update this thread tomorrow @logges

Re: Is NowTV available as a download for Nvidia Shield Set Top Box ?

that would be great to understand exactly what works and the steps requried.

 

I don't have the NowTV app sideloaded.

I simply tried to cast a nowtv video to my shield (on the latest SW) by pressing the cast button but it would not cast. Shiled shows but wont work.

flicking to my seperate chromecasts work perfecly as expected. but the shield will not.

Understandable @logges I'll defs have a check tonight to see what steps i am taking and what works and what doesn't. Have you connected via Wifi Or Lan?
