You have two choices:
1. Download the Official XBMC Android Remote from the Market, because you are using another one.
2. Keep using that, but then ask support from the developer of that application.

Great App ! unbelievable that it works that smoothly!
One quest left, is there a way to power up via remote? i can power on my htpc (which finally boots with xbmc) and i can close xbmc via remote ... but starting ?
Firewall config - Franzzzz - 2011-08-24 13:48
This app is great, indeed!
I finally got it work but I have to disable the firewall of my Xubuntu multimedia computer. I think it's not a big security problem because this computer is only for multimedia purpose. But I suppose it's better to configure the firewall instead of disabling it as this computer is on my home network.
I don't see anything about configuring a firewall for "xbmc remote android" in this FAQ or elsewhere.
Could someone help?

I need help to app without wifi on phone (i mean via 3G). Following is what I tried:
setting in router port forwarding
starting port 9777
ending port 9777
LAN IP address: IP of apple tv with xbmc
2.Set the remote port and IP information. (Optional)
Set Remote IP Address:
(I left these settings blank)
settings on xbmc remote
name of this instance:
host/IP: apple tv IP
HTTP API port: 8080
eventserver port: 9777
wifi only: unselect
access point: I tried all shown on router (Modem IP Address, Default Gateway,
DNS Address #1, DNS Address #2), nothing works
Mac address: mac address of apple tv
Please help me to find out what I am missing.
PS remote works perfect via wifi and I don't have any xbmc server on my computer.

the best practice to check the connection is entering the http://<router ip>:8080 into the browser on your phone. If you do not get the web interface of the xbmc then you have something misconfigured in your router or in apple tv

For me that address typed into my Asus tablet on my home wifi network accessed my router
I am trying to configure the Remote XBMC on my Asus tablet running Android 3.2.1. and having difficulty. The machine running XBMC is a W7 Home Premium 64 bit and I have found it to be quite difficult to work with insofar as networking is concerned/
The strange thing is that the Asus connected to XBMC with no problem for media shares. It has a feature called "MyNet" and it automatically sees my network devices, to include my PC and XBMC, I even streamed music from XBMC but getting the XBMC remote app configured isnt working.
The 8080 ending to the ip address has me wondering because in XBMC network settings it has the port listed as 80, not 8080. Are they the same thing? I am many things but a network administrator is not one of them.
Could someone lead my dumb *ss by the hand and help a brother out?

I have no problem in using remote app through home wifi, but I want to control my apple tv xbmc on my phone via 3G or through internet without using my home wifi.
- gfoldv - 2011-11-11 20:25
rocks91; that case you need to enter 80 as port number in the remote control settings
ykhehra1; that is why you need to use the external address received from the internet provider

Thanks for the reply gfoldv,
I've got it connected, or sort of. I can access the music and movies but the remote doesnt work. I disabled the firewall and still nothing.
I hate this W7 64 bit machine, everything is a struggle to network to it.
