Placeshifter Login

Sometimes when I click on my SageTV box, it asks for a login, other times it doesnt. How do I set one up, or better yet, disable this all together? I want to just select my SageTV from the placeshifter window and have it connect without authenticating.

Will someone be able to watch TV at home while I use my placeshifter to play something else back? I purchased the SageTV with Placeshifter license for ($99) which I believe only allows one user to connect, but I dont know someone watching it locally counts as a user or if one user is one placeshifter connection.

PS users are configured in Detailed Setup -> Server -> Manage Placeshifter Users.

If connecting via LAN, it normally doesn't ask for a login. If connecting remotely, it will.

Each PS license is for concurrent connections. Since you have 1 PS license, one PS client can connect at a time, locally or remotely.
