Re: What's up with this new version of NowTV player 6.1.0.0?

Done the waiting. Nothing. Got a box too so I guess thats ok, but if it has a windows app is it too much to ask that it works. I have no issues with netflix working on browser. It just gets to me. Its not the only time either. Ranting sorry.

I believe that error is due to the fact that you have windows aero disabled on windows 7. Try turning on windows aero by enabling the transparency checkbox in themes

It's taken over a week to discover such a silly thing was stopping it working.

Would have been good to get info from the Help button.

 

Anyway many thanks

WTF?  Why do I have to switch off the classic scheme to Telly-tubby land in-order to use transparency?  Why does the player need to have that?

Well done nick-michael !!!! Neither Now TV on social media or, indeed, their so called 'Tech Experts' on live chat were able to identify such a simple resolution! Still beats me why Aero should be needed, never was prior to 6.1.0.0, but at least I am now able to watch the sports channels again!

Thank you!

Don't know how you came to this conclusion, but it works for me.

I was playing around with this a bit more, and it seems like you don't necessarily need to have transparency enabled, you just need to make sure that you are using one of the 'Aero' themes that support transparency (even if you have it disabled, it seems to still work)

Why is that causing a problem? seems like that shouldn't be a requirement of any update since aero is useful waste of CPU.

On windows 7 Aero, enables direct 3d composition and other features.
