Additional information:
Yatse remote starter wol port is 5600, this also the port on Yatse Remote
what else can I do?


Wol is UDP so state less protocol there’s no error even if no one receive the packet.
I always need full logs.
I need to see your Yatse remote starter configuration and I asked for more details about your network setup.

And obvious first test would be to see if that works with official Kodi first :slight_smile:

Hi you’re awake?? :slight_smile:

this is my starter configuration of corse when I test it I enable the sever it is on ly down when not needed as I don’t won’t it drain battery
what do you mean my network setup? I have regular wifi settings no port forwarding what so ever (If I need to connect remotely I have VPN on my router)
here is the latest log I have from last night

Ok :slight_smile:

So you may have missread everything :slight_smile: The remote starter needs to be installed on the shield.

The word remote is because it is to be remote, on the shield there’s no battery issue :wink: There’s messages everywhere about not installing in phones / tablets as you can even see on this screenshot.

have I missed any appology icon?

I am so sorry for waisting your time if that is the case…
I will try it tonight (am at office now) and let you know, I assime side loading is needed?


No it’s an TV application just install it from the shield Play Store as it should.

And yes it is the case, docs are clear :wink:
