    Re: NOW TV Box 10 inc - Plex install guide

    Well I've tried the Idiots Guide, so now I'll ask for the Dumb F**ker's Guide.
    Firstly, do I need to be subscribed to Now TV for this to work ?
    Next, "Restart PMS" ? ...................... Restart it, feels like I've got it !!!
    As I said DF's Guide, what is PMS ?
    Also, I keep getting a box (in fact they increase in number) with the title of C:\Program Files\Plex\Plex Media Server\PlexScriptHost.exe when I open up the Plex Media Server.
    And just to top it all it now show a problem logging in.
    I'm going to give it a break just now, but any advice or indeed the DF's Guide would be appreciated.

    Who said there's no such thing as a dumb question ?

    I think you have to subscribe (correct me if I'm wrong guys). But you do not have to pay, just click cancel at the screen where it asks for your card details and you should be sorted mate.

    You need to register but not subscribe.

    Registering will then allow you to add Sky Sports Day Passes or if you choose to do so, subscribe to NowTV.

    I was lucky, I got a Quidco deal where the deal was:

    15 cashback
    30 days free
    3 months at 8.99 a month (reverting to 15 after)
    5 free Sky Sports day passes (worth 9.99 each)

    The deal is you get the 5 passes after month 2, so I am keeping it until the 3 months at 8.99 has passed. This means in total with the cashback it has cost about 12 but then again I do have 50 worth of Sky Sports passes to use before the year is out.

    Register but don't subscribe. That deal has gone now but there is a chance something similar will come about. Once it does, register again with a different account and use those log in details on the box and to subscribe with.
