    Hi all,

    I have just installed the U1 android remote control app (as mentioned in the latest firmware post), however it is not finding my U1. Is anyone else having this problem?
    I have an LG G4 running Android 6.0 (stock) and both phone and U1 on same wifi network.

    Also, is this app a standard remote control app, or will it cast FROM U1 TO APP? I had a himedia Q10 before this which I was disappointed by, but it had a great app which would stream from the unit to an app, as well as being able to control the Q10 from the app - I found this handy when others wanted to watch TV and I could from the Q10 for what I wanted to watch (I know I could just install kodi on my phone, but it's easier to only have to update/make changes on one unit).

    Thanks, but it is not the Google remote app that I am having the problem with!

    But a similar issue! (Sorry, title editted)
    I think the one you use with the X8-H Plus is different!
    Have you tried this one from here...

    Remote controller app for Android phones:

    Hi Ads,

    I didn't know there was a remote until you posted it. Thanks!

    At first I had the same problem. Then I found an option in the U1 settings menu to enable a remote. Did that and now it pairs.

    Did you enable the remote?

    Ahhhhh, thanks! That's worked for me - one of those settings which you wonder why it isn't just defaulted to on?!

    Is this enough, or do you need a screenshot of where to find Settings? ;):whistle:

    I got it! thanks!
    I always open settings menu from app drawer and it's completely different from your screenshot. After some brainstorming, I tried to open it from the notification bar and et voilĂ  :)
