Installation

Will the preview installer allow it to be installed alongside an existing "production" installation ...... or will it overwrite it?

Ok, thanks. In that case, I think I'll wait for the stable release rather than risk messing up my current reliable set-up.

i have another box i test from, or you can run in inside a VM

wont necessarily work for all your receivers though, because a few of my network receivers will connect to one server at a time. making it look as if its offline on one and online on the other. thats not a VRS problem

That's a thought - I've got an old laptop doing nothing that I could install the preview on - and spare dongles that I could use for trying-out the set-up :)

You could also set up a rebroadcast server on the live VRS install and have the preview install use that to fetch data.
