I believe you wrote this puppy. Thanks for the web server, it is awesome and has all of the functionality I would want, except streaming video to a web browser... Ohh shoot, here I go. This is supposed to be a big hurray Post not a forum for upgrade requests.
I have installed it per your instructions and must say it worked right out of the box. I opened a port through my firewall and directed all incoming traffic to that port to the machine running Sage. I am sitting at work now and making changed to my favorites, picking shows to record, etc. I will be gone for a week on business and the web server is about the greatest tool I can have to manage my precious disk space.
Again, two big thumbs up. It is truly a nice as well as very fast and snappy design.

I could not believe how easy this was.
My Server is on a 108MB wireless lan, through a Cable modem with dynamic IP address.
Setup and running (with dyndns.org) within 25 minutes.

I've been running v2.0.20 for a while now. I've been using your STV and like how feature filled and rock-solid it is.
I haven't kept up with the forum in general, but in making some posts this morning saw this one. A quick review of the forum says that there are some issues in v2.1 and the beta v2.2. I'm guessing you are making more utilities than STVs at this point (no nielm v2.1 or v2.2 releases, I saw), but am exceptionally interested in the web server (and maybe the MVP thing, too, but later). This only works with >=v2.1? Any plans on v2.0.?, or just incompatible architectures that make this impossible? Are YOU using your v2.0 STV still, or v2.1/v2.2?
What issues, if any, should I know in upgrading to v2.1 or greater? Same key still work? Free upgrade? Backup the sage.prop wiz.bin etc and install, or something more involved? Reverse install to v2.0 if necessary easy enough? Which, if any, is more stable? v2.1 or v2.2? I see complaints about both, but no real resolution as to 'best to use'.
Sorry to stick all this in this thread since it is all not 100% relevant, but this is the feature I want, and have run out of time to play in the forum today. Thanks for the help nielm. Great work as always and thanks for any help/advice you can give. You are obviously a strong programmer. ;)

A quick review of the forum says that there are some issues in v2.1Not everyone has them though: its rock solid for me, and I like the service/UI separation (especially as I have problems with DirectX on my server, so I regularly need to restart the UI)
I'm guessing you are making more utilities than STVs at this point (no nielm v2.1 or v2.2 releases, I saw)Cayars has taken over the role of kitchen-sink STV :) I created import/patch modules for the features I developed (menu/imdb), which can be added to the OriginalV2 or Malore's STV...but am exceptionally interested in the web server this only works with >=v2.1?Sadly yes, it uses new features in 2.1 to work.
Are YOU using your v2.0 STV still, or v2.1/v2.2?2.1's OriginalV2, with all my importable modules and Salsbst's WRS importable module. I don't have much time to fiddle, and reliability is important :)
What issues, if any, should I know in upgrading to v2.1 or greater? Same key still work? Free upgrade? Backup the sage.prop wiz.bin etc and install, not many, yep, yep, backup: of course -easiest to take a copy of the whole Frey directory... (I also backup wiz.bin/sage.properties regularly anyway -- I keep daily versions going back about 10 days).
downgrading is a matter of, well, uninstalling 2.1, reinstalling 2.0, and restoring the 2.0 Frey directory. You will lose info on the recordings made with 2.1... Note also that 2.1 clients are required with 2.1 server and 2.1 clients don't work with 2.0 server...
(sorry about your other issues... and glad to see you back!)

It's as elegant as SageTV itself!
I cant imagine why Frey Tech didn't make this a feature out of the box, but regardless GREAT JOB BRO!
