Hello,
I have XBMC v11 installed on my AppleTV1 via Crystalbuntu. Everything is working great on it. I looked up that there is an official iPhone app. Sweet. I downloaded it on to my iPhone 4S. I tapped 'Find XBMC' Auto found! Sweet! Added un/pw. But it won't connect. Using a packet sniffer on the ATV here is what I see:

Code:
T 192.168.20.103:58173 -> 192.168.20.107:8080 [A]
POST /jsonrpc HTTP/1.1.
Host: 192.168.20.107:8080.
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate.
Content-Type: application/json.
Accept-Language: en-us.
Content-Length: 115.
Accept: */*.
Connection: keep-alive.
User-Agent: DSJSONRPC/1.0.
.

##
T 192.168.20.103:58173 -> 192.168.20.107:8080 [AP]
{"method":"Application.GetProperties","id":-530721742,"jsonrpc":"2.0","params":{"properties":["version","volume"]}}

This prints over and over with a varying "id" value. It seems that XBMC is not responding to requests it is receiving from the remote. The web remote (http://xbmc.local:8080) works just fine.

What should I look at to find out why the app remote will not work? I tried several other iPhone apps for controlling XBMC and they all give the same behavior.

TIA, -Matthew
