When you go to 192.168.1.254 does it list all connected devices & their IP address?

You ping the Now TV box address eg ping 192.168.1.65

No, just gives me the results for the router. Pinged the now box and results were in the thread below.

If that's the IP address of the Now TV box, then yes, it's responding to pings as expected.

If the DMZ is also pointing to the same IP address I'm stumped.

How do I know the dmz is pointing to that address? The only thing I can do with the dmz is to add an item to it, nothing else. That said, I am having to try something else now as my Now box has put itself in a different sub net somehow? I have tried in the network settings to try and make the Now box a static ip, but I change it, save and when I go back, it has changed back to DHCP again frown

NowTV box won't need to be in DMZ. What DMZ does is allow other devices on the internet to connect inbound to it - often used for multi-player gamers for XBox, PC, PS3/PS4 etc.

The NowTV box works the same way as any other video streaming box, and connects out from your internet connection to the website. So no DMZ required - if it isn't giving a picture at all, then its either the wrong cable, or incompatible with your TV.

It will if it is going to respond to pings which is the whole purpose of this thread!
