@LastGeeko
Settings > Network (I'll give the exact details when I get home, away in holidays now)

@GhostlyGamer
I'll need to look into iPhone SDK and all that, haven't done it yet... Sorry I don't have an iPhone and no plans to buy one just yet...

@Redneck9
That requires something like Xir (http://www.xir.us/)

I found this over the weekend as well - it actually works pretty well in some ways:

Running xbmc4xbox 3.1
it can:
Access & play items in music library
Access files and start video playback

it can't:
function as a direct remote
access video library

Remember to actually set the webserver password in xbmc, and use *that* username & password when trying to log in - I used port 80 as well if that helps?

Xbmc Remote for iphone made my htpc keyboard/mouse obsolete! App was free and no adds! If it could do the same for xbmc4xbox that would make my day..............

@xanderten50
I think you might be confusing it with the XBMC Remote, which does music as well - this one doesn't yet.

@Adult Swimmer
XBMC has some more features, that XBMC4Xbox may or may not have - as to control mouse cursor location and other things.

I'm afraid the decision whether to make the app paid, free ad or no add supported is entirely mine (the developer) - I tried to minimize ads the impact on you (the user) by having a single ad in the main screen. To date (a little over a month) it made me $0.28 richer than I was before. Most of the time users ignore the efforts that a developer has to make to write and maintain an application.

Well Dan Dar3, I love that app (4 iphone). VERY VERY NICE JOB!!!! Thank you for giving me the ability to:
1) Turn my htpc on, which boots directly to xbmc via my phone.
2) Browse through a massive database of media within seconds ( htpc xbmc to ftp server ).
3) The ability to play / DJ my music without the need of turning on that big screen tv.
4) Option to put the htpc in sleep mode or just shut down.
5) Doing all the above without the subliminal mind( **ck ) that comes with those ads!!


Now, somehow this just doesn't seem right. $1.99 well,, that would seem right. I have 5 friends that have been turned on to this in the last 5 days!!!!!! You Know you could always donate the $ to a charity or work on a drinking problem. lol I owe U 1!!!!!!!!! Thanks

Should the app display movies covers ? It's showing the folder.jpg from the movies folder on my server for every movies.
Also, the three dot menu button is showing up in every menu whitout any menu item.. That can hurt some geeks feeling real bad. :[ (kidding lol)
Thanks a lot for your hard work Dan!

@Xphazer
Thanks for the screenshots. I'm in holidays this week, I might ask you for more details next week, I can't really do much without my Xbox to test with.

I need to change the TV Shows for larger screens to be a bit bigger and fill the screen. I'll try to a JellyBean emulator, see how I can get rid of the three dot menu then.

I'm not sure if I am being dumb but I followed all the requirements and it is still not working. XBMC Remote works fine but with XBMC4XBOX Remote isn't even detecting.

These are the settings in my console (using XBMC 3.2-STABLE):

@noyus
You seem to have enabled the web server. Try pointing the browser on your PC to confirm the connection:
http://192.168.1.78/xbmcCmds/xbmcHttp?c ... rverstatus

Might want to try the scanner a few times, especially if on wireless, it only waits for 100ms for a connection, I will try to enlarge the timeout in next version or maybe even allow to be configurable (although the longer the timeout, the longer it will take to scan the entire range).

The link you gived confirms that the webserver is on.
I tried the scanner a few times but still does not work. Always says "XBMC4XBOX not found".
