After I installed the latest update from the Android market (dated Feb 9th), the app is unable to find my TV anymore. It used to be working great and finding the TV within seconds. I tried re-enabling jointspace (saw the jointspace disabled message first time, enabled message next) but it didn't work.

I am trying to access my 8605H from SGS2.

Rebooting the phone or TV did not help. I also verified both are connected to the same network. I can access to NetTV without a problem. Also, as I said, it was working before I installed the update.

Hi,

Tried version 2.0. Works on my Xperia Arc but not my Asus Transformer TF101. On the latter, the SimplyShare function finds my Streamium NP3900 but the Philips Control doesn't find it. Same problem as previous version, can't detect the NP3900 device.

Samsung Galaxy Note N-7000 Gingerbread 2.3.6

Hi,

Control: Remote is working with my 47pfl7606 K
Net TV: Kein SmartTV ausgewählt
Simple Share: I can see my mediaservers and my TV, but there is a big empty window over the medialist. I cant select a mediafile. Only a maby 50 pixel wide area from the left side is sensitive.

information: The infobox is only 50 pixel wide and text is wraping within this small box. So its not readable.
setup: Same as information

Maby there is a problem with calculating correct positions and dimensions of the layouts. Galaxy Note has a dimension of 1280x800 Pixel.

Hi Alex,
Go to your TV-EPG (TV Guide).
Press the Yellow button on your RC.
You got a popup with the Activation Code.
This code needed to be filled in on your tablet (I guess).

Hi,

if you set up your TV to EPG from network, your Programme Guide should display the IP-EPG (you will see a small broadcast windows in the top left corner). However, IP-EPG is dependent on the chosen DVB tuner and your country...

Hi,
Just tried out the new version 2.0 on my Acer A500, together with my 40pfl6606t TV. Everything seems to work, including the TV guide - really nice interface. I have a couple of suggestions on how to improve further:
1. Enable scheduling of recording to USB harddisk from the TV guide on the Android device. This interface is more effective for doing this
2. When streaming music over DLNA, and turn of the LED display (red button, turn of screen), the display turns on again, when the number is changed. A better solution is to keep the screen blackened, until a specific button (say red) is pushed again.

Hi Robert,

EPG has been chosen as an extra feature for tablets because of the large screen. A smartphone version might become available in the long term.

This 3rd screenshot you are mentioning is showing device names, but you can name them anything you like...

In the main screen it also seems to search forever for other devices, even after finding tv. Does it stop?
Control works nice n smooth. guide isnt compatible, sadly.

Finally I have installed app in my Wildfire, it works good with 7605 and 7606. I wonder if Philips can add sharing of services like youtube. It would be nice because I receive correct search results on my smartphone (youtube). Searching of youtube over Net TV app always gives incorrect and strange results.

The latest MyRemote app is very cool. I love the app an how easy it is to control my TV. With all the new functions it was the right choice to buy a philips tv and not a samsung tv.

I tried the new version last weekend but I have a problem to stream videos from my SGS2 to my Philips LED TV.

I think the video codec is not supported by the streaming server. My short Problem description (http://www.blogyourearth.com/en/smartphone-2/philips-myremote-2-smarttv/3237)

Is this the reason for my problem ?
Where will I find a list of the supported video codecs ?

if you wanna stream videos which doesn't work with myremote just try samsungs allshare or imediashare.

I just tested it as well and it is a really good improvement. I like the new MyRemote app and the ability to play from local media servers on the TV.

Only the video format of the mobile phone was not supported by the TV. As an enhancement, there could be some transcoding done on the smartphone. I think, this worked with iMediaShare.

But in all other points: very nice working app! Go on like this!

When I stream pictures to my 32PFL9705K/02 (FW 140.046.0), for every picture the TV displays the file name, the big triangle icon in the middle and the message box "Bild wird angezeigt" ("Displaying picture" or similiar). That's annoying and makes the picture streaming somewhat unsuable. This is a pity, since it would be nice to show pictures using the tablet as controller.

Would be great if you could fix that (probably in the TV firmware), so that just the plain pictures are displayed, like the slide show that is initiated on the TV itself.

Frank

Agree with previous comment. Quite annoying with the white bar saying "Hämtar bild" (Fetching image) in the bottom when loading a new picture to be displayed. Ruins the experience quite a bit. I also wonder how you stop the slide-show. I felt a bit stupid when I couldn't find any "quit" button. Clicking "back" on my Xperia did not stop the slide show. What did I do wrong?

I have installed the newest MyRemote app on my HTC Desire (Android 2.2.2). I use it on my Philips 37PFL7606H/12 TV with latest firmware version 000.014.095.000 just installed.
Everything work OK except for one major issue: If I use the onscreen keyboard in the app, for example to search in the YouTube SmartTV app, incorrect characters are sent to the TV. When I type 'a' on the phone, it shows '2' on the tv and a search on '2' is started automatically. If I type 'q', '77' is shown and searched.
My main reason to use the Android app is to have a better way to enter text, which is cumbersome on the TV.
Is this a known issue? Any tips on what I can do to improve this?

Issue is already known that the myremote app doesn´t work with the youtube app.
Even when both devices are set to the same language e.g. german it doesn´t help.

Hi Robert,

This would really surprise me, as the MyRemote is just simulating the actual physical remote, so it doesn't matter in which NetTV App you are.

Can you please double check that the TV language is the same as the phone's keyboard language (which is independent of the phone's general language)?

Considering the described symptoms (pressing 'a', will present a '2'), this is 100% reproducible by having different language settings.

Hi Juan,

i will double check next weekend ( on my SGS2 i checked it, it is german/Germany). But i´m pretty sure because i´ve never changed the settings of the TV ( there was always german ) and this issue happens with some other apps too (i don´t remember all yet but i think it was maxdome and videociety. There are not a lot of other apps which i use and which need a keyboard. And because the myremote 1.0.4. app takes a long time to be released i´m pretty fast with the "normal" remote using SMS typing).

I also found out when you copy a long URL and paste it in the browser it sometimes happens that a few letters get mixed up. like https:// isn´t https:// anymore it builds up with http7://

Hello,

I've been trying to connect these two for several days now. I contacted Philips support, they are not really informed very well and are just telling something so that the customer has the feeling that he cares for him. My last support-member told me that the app is not designed for Honeycomb 3.2.1. But this cannot be true, because at least one forum-user is successful with this version (he posted in this threat). I reinstalled the app several times, I restarted both devices several times. And yes I do have the latest versions of all software on my devices. But still no connection. Is here anybody who was successful in connecting a tablet with a HTS sound-system?

Hi Juan,

i´ve double checked the language configuration on both devices... I can confirm that the myremote app 2.0 as the 1.0.4. doesn´t work with youtube leanback. No letters get transmitted just the digit. On top of that, typing anything on the myremote keyboard crashes the whole youtube app...

Hi there,

Here a summary of my experiences with the android app.

I use a galaxy tab 10.1 combined with the 7605 philips tv. Installation an retrieval of television works just fine. Simple share works like a charm for pictures, but most (all?) movie formats are not recognised.

I get a message very regularly "Lost connection, cannot connect to remote machine" and wants you to push the "Ok" button which stops the app. Most of the time this message disappears after several seconds if you just don't push the ok button and you can continue to use the app as if the message did not appear, but sometimes the app crashes and needs to be restarted.

The most beautiful feature is of course the possibility to use the keyboard of the tablet, especially combined with youtube. This works but rather indirectly unfortunately. The keyboard button on the tablet does not react half the time, which is annoying.

In theory the combination with IP-EPG is great, however several channels offered by Ziggo (NL) cannot be found using IP-EPG e.g. the right disney channel and discovery channel resulting in a rather limited added value. For now I have no choice but to use the EPG of Ziggo. The good news is that after connecting the tab with IP-EPG, this connection remains available, even after using the other EPG option again. So some of the channels still can be used.

Dear all,

I recently bought a HTS 9241/12. I run it together with a NAS (Synology DS212+) and it works fine in general. The only thing I cannot figure out is how to send music/photos/videos from the PC to the HTS (not using the TV - I have a Sony TV). Is there any software available to do this? The Diskstation Media Server doesn't seem to be capable to stream music from the PC to the HTS, controlled by the PC.

Alternatively, I tried to use the MyRemote App, but My Smartphoe SE Experia Active with Android 2.3.4. doesn't find the HTS. Any Idea why this does not work?
Basicly, I want to hear MP3s on my HTS without using the TV-menu :-)

I have a 7" inch tablet (ZTE V9), and I was really watting for these features (remote control of TV -7606 and dlna server / control point) in one app, but this version seems a bit buggy, the main problem I have is that the screen resolution of the app is bigger than the tab native resolution (800x480), so the main screen is cropped and I can't access all the features nor the configuration.

Twonky doesn't support/recognize the HTS, as well as other dlna controllers. Seems like I have to wait till this device is supported. Still don't get it why Philips MyRemote doesn't work for the HTS on my android phone!

I use the YouTube app but when searching for videos, using an iphone or android phone, i cannot use the phone keyboard properly. The app does not recognize the letters from the keyboard but writes numbers instead.

Hi,

with the latest update from today graphic problems on Galaxy Note are solved. Thank you for working on it.
Could you please activate TV Guide on Galaxy Note? I think Galaxy Note is more a tablet than a smartphone.
Or is it planed to activate TV Guide generaly on Android 4.0? Than I can wait for Android 4.0 update for Galaxy Note.

Regards,

This should work with any DLNA controller. I use the Twonky app, which supports queuing of songs, but costs. The app iMediaControl does the same, but without queuing support. But I do that with the TV, I do not have a HTS, but it should be the same...

Unfortunetaly, you can´t stream music directly to the HTS. It must be a problem of the HTS9221 because no server app works, neither ALLSHARE, iMediaShare nor Myremote.

It is only possible to browse the smartphone via the HTS menu and therefor you need the TV to be switched on, so this DLNA function is completly senseless because the TV can browse other devices too and sometimes one wants too listen to music (by streaming it) without having the TV switched on...

Seems that sadly all enhancements of 2.0 version aren't supported by 2009 TVs, or do I mind? (except may support for tablets)

Only remote control via virtual keyboard works as limited as before.

I'm wondering why simply connect doesn't work with my 8404 since the tv is dnla capable and a videos could be streamed by a stand alone twonky mobile App (if the tv finds the twonky mobile server and the phone doesn't go power save mode during access/playing). May be MyRemote would need a special kind of support to implement for 2009 devices? If any body knows an other simple but stable working dnla server app on Android only to stream Videos from my SGS (and no other network sources) to the TV please let me know.

Even if Greacenote IPEPG-Guide now works on my tv like tvtv guide should have worked two years ago the tv guide connection via My Remote would be nice for me too. But I thinlk this couldn't work without update of device software that isn't done any more.

iMediashare didn't work: the tv didn't see the media server. May be it provides only newer dnla protocoll versions.

I found in-between an other dnla server. It shares all media files on my phone or nothing. There is nothing to configure. It does the job but has only a few downloads in Google Play yet so I don't know, if I can trust the program if it wouldn't be do any thing unwanted else...

May be I will give a try Samsung Allshare.

Adjust button/icon missing

Hi, am I the only one who is missing the Adjust button/icon? If I remember correctly the first myremote app had the Adjust button.
The Adjust button should have one of the highest priority since the PNM issue is still not resolved (PNM active after start, although it is disabled in the picture setting).

It would be great, to customize the 9 icons shown on myremote, so that one could access directly e.g. Settings or 3D, without having to select Adjust before and then navigate through the incredible slow menu.

Simpleshare doesnt find any playback device. Any thoughts?

In the main screen it also seems to search forever for other devices, even after finding tv. Does it stop?
Control works nice n smooth. guide isnt compatible, sadly.

Hi,

you TV is a 2009 TV. 2009 TV only have DLNA 1.0 - this means, that they only can pull media data. They don't have the ability to receive content by pushing from a different device...

DLNA 1.5 - 2010 and later:
- push to TV
- pull from TV

DLNA 1.0 - 2009 TVs:
- pull from TV

Dear all,

W.r.t. questions on the TV Guide: be sure to use the IP-EPG screen (and not the Broadcaster EPG screen).

Screens you should see are these:

849

850

I don't think that I'll get anything because I'm not near the Spain border, but if you think that it can solve the SimplyShare problem, than I'll try it. To change the country, the only option is to reinstall the tv, isn't it? Is there any way to keep my channels and preferences?

Hello together,
my problem is i use a 46PFL8685K/02, a 42PFL8654H/12 and 2 Android devices, Motorola milestone2 stock rom and Motorola xoom stock rom ,my app is the lates version from the market. The problem is everything works fine tv control, simply share, but if i try to connect the Tvguide , the code will not accept from the moto xoom. V code come from TvGuidescreen by pressing the yellow button, ip-epg is activated. At the milestone i have no point to register the tv guide from the tv's.
What ist the reason for the bad code? What can i do to get a correct code from tv?
I have reboot both devices, i've reinstall the app at both device, without solution.
Please help me to get the full function from these wonderfull app.

The media server integrated into the APP is inherently insecure, since it lacks ACLs or any other control mechanism. As most Android devices are mobile and often roam between different WLANs, files will be shared on any such network the device connects to. Only secure option: Turn it off and never turn it on again.

Hi, I don't think there is one, it's just one of the problems that philips never solved. I have the same problem with my 8606 tv. If I turn off the power, then after powering on, the simply share or connecting to pc feature work as it should, but after putting the tv in stand by mode, after that, these features on the tv or on my remote just keeps searching and found nothing until I power off the tv again (power button in the back of tv set).

Slow clunky the remote is so slow as to be unusable. My Tablet has a HDMI output this is way better for sharing streaming media to the TV. No program guide available for the UK. So in short this app is as much use to me as a chocolate tea pot.
