I got Hippo Remote (basic) for my iPod specifically to control XDSL. I can't get it working and would love some help.
First things first. I checked Hippo's support page and found this:
"Does HippoRemote work with the XBOX?
No, HippoRemote does not support the XBOX."
That seems like a pretty broad statement, and I have asked Hippo for some clarification, but they haven't responded. The remote works via VNC. I can run VNC, so why should the hardware matter?
I know that I have VNC installed correctly because I can access the XDSL desktop from other machines on my network.
I get the feeling that this might be a credentials problem. The Hippo setup asks for the IP (or host), a password, a port, and a HW address (which it lists as optional). I know my XBOX ip, and verified it with ifconfig. As for the rest of the info, I'm not really sure. I have tried entering the port number that XBMC uses. I have no idea about the password. XDSL never asks me for one. I tried "xbox" but it didn't work.
I don't know if it matters or not, but I'm running XDSL as a 2GB loopback install.
