Any recommendations? Or a brief tutorial on how to manually configure CP2 without using the "Settings" or "Advanced Wizard" buttons?

I still think you will have problems as you need to add things into the database etc...
We are trying to look into this issue to see how to get it working.

Okay - let me know and thank you for all the help.

FYI - I do have the ability to input and select a movie.

Hey Clinton, so I don't bug you about this issue every week, do we have an expected resolution date for this issue?

Yeah, you can look here https://github.com/RuudBurger/CouchPota ... ssues/1297
but there hasn't been any progress on this that I am aware of.

I would try and look into it myself, but to be honest I don't know where to start...

Dang it... stupid non-ASCII. Is their a way to change the username without having to reformat the entire PC? When I looked online, it seems not.
