I have version 3.1 running perfectly now. Thanks for the TV Posters now playing! I Just setup a schedule to turn on the TV through CEC so awesome, thanks for that.

One little glitch maybe? When I click on Schedule, it's tries to goto moveinow.local/cron/...I just put in my IP and all is well.

Thanks again for all the hard work!

Maybe I'm missing something, because only the IP is working for me.

Gotcha, it's not working, not sure why. I'm plugged in, not using a static IP.

movienow is running a service called Avahi which convert dynamic or static IP from number to domain (example 192.168.1.100 to movienow.local) , so with this you can always access web interface without to know raspberry local IP address

very weird that is not working for you.

No sure why it's not working either. Oh well. I set a static IP address and plugged it into the network. Re-did the update and it's still not working. No big deal. I also checked that service and it is running.

I had the same issue when trying to access octopi for my 3D printer. I forget what the solution was, but it is a setting in your browser. I think it has something to do with avahi and DNS resolution of local IP addresses.

You can either set an 'assigned IP" to the Pi or try googling "can't access octopi.local" to see what kind of solutions there are. Here's an example thread: https://community.octoprint.org/t/can-n ... ss/15717/6
