Future Development Features
1) It would also be nice to see some kind of password protection, so that not everybody on the network can have access. I am not a developer, just an idea, 1 Main RPi server with a master password, ability to add more devices in that pool, and they pull the password from the main server. So 1 Master password to control all, just like how Mesh Wifi works, or Google Home assistants etc.
2) Ability to name every server, so that once we go on the centralised URL, we can discover and recognise each server by name (Really tedious to remember each display by IP Address).
3) Even better if we can have a Phone App.
4) Ability to Shutdown all the devices with just 1 click.
5) Wake on LAN feature enabled, so that can turn on all the devices with 1 click.
6) Can you check this out, improving the backend or web settings UI https://elements.envato.com/crovex-admi ... te-GEKRBVA
Thanks 4 your suggestions & ideas!

Ver 4.1 has different drivers and kernel , you need to re-flash the SD card.

Sorry what I meant was if I am on version 3.0 now do I need to update to version 4.0 first before updating to 4.1 ? Thanks

which pi you are using?

if you run Rpi Zero , yes zero has this kind of error , and i think its because cant handle the new versions of MovieNow , its more memory and cpu hungry!

Pi4 or Pi3 is recommended!

I'm completely new to this and stumbled onto this site while reading about "Movie Posters App". It seems this is only for a Raspberry Pi? No Windows or Android support?

Also...if only Pi...is that v3 or v4 or both?

I apologize for my n00bness...
