    Hello

    Since upgrading to aMPdroid 1.1 I have not been very successful in regaining control of Mediaportal, due to two issues:-

    1) Wifiremote - aMPdroid keeps reporting 'Remote connection cannot be established' I have tried both version of Wifiremote 7.0 and 7.1 with no difference (on previous version of aMPdroid V1.0 this was not an issue and worked, obviously with different version of Wifiremote which I can't recall).
    2) Unable to stream/playback recordings - Since diebagger has given me a test version, I have been able to get playback of recorded programme to work, but can only used HTTP Live Streaming, previously I was able to use Android FFmpeg, which no longer works. Anyway, As I have tried using the official version of aMPdroid 1.1.1 I am not able to stream/playback anything, so this test version, that I have allows me to at least do that. NOTE: This log won't contain this issue, obviously the fix is in test APK version, just needs to be applied to official version (if further testing/debuging is require please let me know).

    I am able to connect to Mediaportal via powermode and this works fine, and I have able to list and record TV scheduled, so this proves that connection to PC/Mediaportal is established and correct (and yes, I have gone thru all the troubleshooting procedure of MPextended - no issues).

    I am using MPextended V0.5.2 and using mediaportal V1.2.1.0, on Windows 7 32bit and 63bit, as I have two PC with PC Mediaportal installed (yes both worked fine prior to the upgrade). Tablet device is a Sumsung Galaxy V10.1 with Android V4.0.4 (also have Nexus 7, but same issue).

    As requested I enclosed both logs from Mediaportal and from Android while attempting to use 'Remote' or 'Connect Remote' option.

    According to your MediaPortal log files WifiRemote isn't running... Have you started MediaPortal with the debug tool? The first option will disable ALL plugins...

    Hi,

    Well that does surprised me, since when did I have to enabled WifiRemote plugins, as I never had to do that, and it happened on both system? OK, so I went into Mediaportal Configuration and enabled it, and it works!! Excellent, I finally get the 'remote' function working!!

    But I am staying on the test version, as this does allow me to stream recorded programme onto my tablets, the official version don't allow me to do this (aMPdroid V1.1.1).

    Just as a point, if Mediaportal debug disables all plugins, then this defeats the object of doing the diagnostic in first place?

    So will be looking forward to the official version when released!

    Thanks!

    It's always been that way...

    Well, MediaPortal Debug Mode is meant for debugging MediaPortal itself, not for debugging problems with plugins.

    Just following the process on "How to report a bug" from the aMPdroid section in Wiki....

    "WifiRemote logs

    If problems occur related to WifiRemote (remote control, play on pc, playlists,...) you also need to attach the MediaPortal log files. You can easily do this with the MediaPortal debug mode."

    And it does state "in which only the default skin and plugins will be loaded".

    So which is right here? :)

    Did you read the options you get in the MediaPortal debug mode?

    Option 2 clearly says "Report a bug to a plugin developer or skin designer"

    Would have done if that is what you wanted, but I don't see that this is what you ask for. Just states as follows:-

    Sorry, but it seems quite obvious to me that you need the option to report a bug to a plugin developer instead of the option to report a bug to MediaPortal.

    How do you check it? And why keep it when we have an IMDBID in the database - it's almost 100% guaranteed accurate identification of the film, IMDBURL is just unnecessary information that will clutter the database.
