Hello I have just moved over to Ouya but have one big problem

Hi guys happy to be hear and must say I'm happy with the speed I'm getting from the Ouya box I have only had it around 6 hours but at least 4 of the hours have been pulling my hair out.

I have looked in this part of the site and found the same question asked at lest 4 times with 2 having help and the other 2 blanked.

Now my question is this

Side loaded xbmc downloaded from xbmc.org frodo 12.3 and its running sweet about from I'm unable to get any Xbmc remote software working. Now as I said I found out your meant to input the info your self easy job.

Ie
Name XBMC
ip 192.168.0.6
Mac ##\##\##\##\##\##
Port 8080
User Name
Password

After putting in all the info I get this error. Come up
Cannot connect to endpoint. Add anyways ?
This is with Xbmc touch remote on iPad

And with the official Xbmc remote it just don't anything
I have all so tryed android xbmc remotes with no luck.
So how do I get this working guys as I say pulling my hair out just can't do it :( thanks

You need to enable the feature within XBMC first! Navigate to SYSTEM/SERVICES and enable every option in that menu structure.

This allows XBMC to be controlled remotely. Allows remotes to connect... Ext.

You can try but I highly sought it is an issue within OUYAs firmware. I would suspect a router or firewall issue.

Perhaps.... Install the latest nightlies from

http://xbmc.org/dowbloads

From there... Choose nightlies, then android, then ARM and install. See if you have a different experience with that FIRST.

Its the version I'm running on my OUYA and its working. Do that BEFORE you wipe everything else. Remember it will be under the MAKE menu once installed.... Not the PLAY menu ;)

Part one check the XBMC AUDIO settings and select the needed boxes to enable did 5.1.

Part 2... In unsure. Never needed to do it.

If guessing.... From ouya...

Go settings(system) ... Advanced. . input.... And check there for language options.

It is a remote control from XBMC. It is on your phone... Instead of a physical remote control. If unsure... Is with posting with!!!!
