How do I manually add a receiver?

If scanning doesn't work for you, you can also manually add a receiver.  To get started with that, open the app and press Menu > Setup/Scan then press the "Manual Setup" button.  When you do this, the app will display a message showing your phone or tablet's IP address.  Make a note of this because one of the first steps to adding a receiver (or even performing a scan for that matter) is to ensure that your network and equipment is set up correctly.


Follow these steps to manually add a receiver:

  1. Confirm your receiver's settings and retrieve its IP address.  Click here for instructions on how to do this.
  2. Once you have ensured that the IP address "matches" as outlined in linked instructions above, enter the receiver's IP address into the app and press the "Add" button.
  3. Once the receiver is found, press the "Done" button to stop manually adding receivers or repeat the steps above to add another one.
If your Android device's IP address and the receiver's IP address both appear similar as outlined in the linked instructions above, click here for more help with resolving this issue.
