MediaDroid-100 Remote Control
« on: March 11, 2013, 08:02:21 PM »
I need to have remote control over my MediaDroid-100(MD100).  My signs are miles from my office and I need to have remote reboot capabilities.  I have installed app onto my droid from wwwDOTdigitalsignageDOTcom filesremotecontrol.apk.  The app installs successfully and appears to be fully functional except it cannot see a device to control.  Any assistance here would be great.

I understand it has to be on the same wifi; even i have tried with the same wifi it has not worked.

Hmmmm?  I am actually scouring the droid apps for a remote control device that can allow me to remotely reboot my MediaDroid-100 without physically being present.  I have signs in remote locations that would make it extremely burdensome to physically reboot.

There's a threat elsewhere about controlling screens with RS232 where I contributed that we use an ethernet connected box to forcibly power cycle - problem is they cost more than the average Android player ($60-80!)
