Worked before, now FUBAR Had almost no issues, using my HDW-PU3 for about two years. Now it's giving me issues on a Redmi Note 1s. Won't obtain an IP Address unless I alter the WLAN connection to "static" , then the app says "not connected". So I then change it back to DCHP upon which it seems to connect but no files will play. I'm at my wit's end messing with this. What a drag. Is this an android bug? I dunno...

Horrible interface and doesn't do what it needs to. On my Xperia no files are listed on the phone side so I can't upload anything to the drive to free up space, which was the main thing I needed this app for. I'd rather stream to my tablet instead, so the download side I'd want working with Windows, which is also not really supported. However, a windows share is open on 10.10.10.254 admin/admin, which has no file restrictions, so use the app to set up the Internet connection and then just use the open share
