After installing kodi 18.9 on my FireTV Stick 4k it wasn’t possible to activate remote control settings (i.e. webserver and “allow remote control from applications on other systems”).
On every kodi startup it showed a message “remote communication server failed to start” and I tried changing the weberver-port to “10080” (in the kodi UI) and the event-server port to “10777” (in “guisettings.xml”).
After changing these values in Yatse it was able to control kodi again but it still shows the Host as “offline”.
The communication server message on kodi startup still appeared on every startup and meanwhile I found out, that this was caused by the fact that kodi uses port 9090 for jsonrpc by default.
After Changing the jsonrpc port to “10090” in “advancedsettings.xml” the startup message never showed up again but Yatse still shows the host as offline.
Would it be possible to make the jsonrpc port configurable in Yatse to get it working again?
Thanx in advance!
