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...
yes MovieNow its only for raspberry pi (Rpi4 & Rpi3 is recommended) !

Oraid just a suggestion but why don't you put somewhere on the site banner something like "MovieNow is for the use with raspberry pi only, models Rpi3 & Rpi4 are recommended !"

HI there, so I just downloaded and install v3 app onto a Rpi zero. all went smooth. Connected to wifi, can see Movienow in my Fing and able to get to it from my browser, however all I see (both on TV and the web browser) is a black screen with "this theater features.. DTS.... etc" on the bottom of the screen. There's no options for further config at all. Can anyone help please.

Go to web interface for config the movienow

movienow.local/settings/

Or

Raspberryip/settings/
(Example 192.168.1.100/settings/)

Ah I see - thank you!

So I must have either Plex or kodi setup in order for the app to display posters? I was under the impression it works “out of the box” with some preloaded posters, no?

Thanks!
