There's an app for that...

TiVo and Pioneer offer remote control software for iOS and Android equipment. I've been using both for a while, and it's great stuff. When hardwired to the router. Behind the DAP-1522, not so much.

The DAP works like a champ in every respect except in this application. Everything attached to it can hit the internet- the TiVo, the Samsun smart TV, my laptop via 1000baseT, and to anything else networked in the house.

The problems are intermittent. Presently the iPad can control the Tivo, but not the Pioneer. But Airplay on the iPad connects to the Pioneer with no problem. And then the iPad remote can control the Pioneer again.

Another example is that the iPad can't find the TiVo, but my Android phone can. Usually.

This is a little too subtle for me. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

    • Router Troubleshooting

What model host router are you using with the DAP, if any?

What region are you located?

What mode is the DAP running on? AP or Bridge?

Some things to try: - Log into the routers web page at Use IE, Opera or FF to manage the router.
Turn off ALL QoS or Disable Traffic Shaping (DIR only) GameFuel (DGL only and if ON.) options on the host router.

Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices ON the host router. This ensures each devices gets its own IP address when turned on and connected, eliminates IP address conflicts and helps in troubleshooting.
Ensure devices are set to auto obtain an IP address.
Set Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP if the host router has an option like this.
Enable uPnP and Multi-cast Streaming on the host router.

Link>Wireless Installation Considerations
What wireless modes are you using?
Try single mode G or N or mixed G and N?
Channel Width set for Auto 20/40Mhz or try 20Mhz only.
Try setting a manual channel to a open or unused channel. 1, 6 or 11. 11 for single mode N if the channel is clear.
What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal. WPA2/AES Only. Some WiFi adapters don't support AES, so you might want to try TPIK only or Auto.
Any other WiFi routers in the area? Link> Use InSSIDer to find out. How many?

Try turning off Short GI, WLAN Partition,and Extra Wireless Protection if you have it on the host router and DAP.
Enable WMM Enable

Turn off all anti virus and firewall programs on PC while testing. 3rd party firewalls are not generally needed when using routers as they are effective on blocking malicious inbound traffic.
Turn off all devices accept for one wired PC while testing.
