I must find another couple of hours to make this work. I must say we (I am not the only one in my neighbourhood that bought this product for local access) are really disappointed that this is still not possible "by default". (after 5 months ...)
Hope you find the time to create a simpeler workaround.
Currently we have no timeplan. This project depends heavily on the community. If someone helps us with the development it might go quick. If no one is interested it just might not be implemented at all (or at least take time since it is not a prioritized project).
