First off forgive me as I know this has been a subject for many topics so far but none have been helpful today. I noticed a few weeks ago that I lost the ability to use the Android WDTV Remote on either of my WDTV Live Gen 3 devices. Previously I was able to use it on all of my Android devices; Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and my Xoom.
Now none of the Android devices can connect with the WDTV Live box. Now I plan my network pretty well and it’s not due to network issues AFAIK since all of the WDTV boxes are wired and are set with static IP addresses.
I originally thought it may ha been due to me upgrading the firmware on the boxes but I eventually rolled back to 1.0.6 which was a known good version that was working. I’m starting to wonder if perhaps the updated Android app it’s self is bad and not the firmware however since the older version was removed from the Google Play market I can’t test that theory.
That out of the way I did notice that if I use the WDIxTV Mediaplayer remote, while scanning doesn’t find either of the boxes I can force a connection and the that remote works. Granted I have to force it everytime and it’s something I’d want my wife or kids to have to do in order to get the access to the remote.
So two questions;
Does anyone know if ther is a fix / suggestion for this?
Does anyone have an APK of the older Android app that can be used to test if it’s the newer app that’s the cause?
