Android "WD TV Remote" no longer works since last FW update

Android WD TV Remote no longer works since last FW update, now it never finds wdtv :frowning:

I used it to input search text in youtube…

Since last FW, youtube also reboots wdtv a lot of times :frowning:

Can anyone use “android WD TV remote” with this last FW?

I can’t replicate this issue on my devices at home. App works great and finds both SMP’s. I have two nook colors I use as home theater remotes as well as twonky to push media should I choose (works meh since the nook is weak but great on the nexus 4).

Thanks for your feedback.

I’ll try to find whats wrong in my setup.

It was working before.

I have wdtv wired to the router and a huawei android phone wireless.

I can ping wdtv from the android phone.

I don’t find anything wrong in router setup, but i’ll look into it again.

Problem is a bug in my router.

I have a router firewall rule to block wdtv access to the internet.

Somehow my router also blocks some packets/protocols to wdtv inside the LAN.

If I turn off the router firewall rule, “wd tv remote” android app works again.

Thanks again for your feedback.

I did something similar when I reflashed linux/xbmc on the xios and had a derp moment. XBMC remote app wouldn’t work for some reason and that was because I didn’t enable it hehe.
