I'm a little behind on you all, and I might have overlooked a part of the topic so forgive me if there is a solution in the previous 50 pages.
TL;DR. I keep getting the Server not found error.
I cant get wifi sync to work (reliably, or at all).
I have been trying for a while and on occasions it has worked;
So I've tried the latest release from the site (3.3.7261) and also the latest release from the forums (3.3.7310)
I have used the Android app in both the release channel and the beta channel. All of them no luck.
I had everything working a week before christmas, however after pressing sync in the app it started syncing my entire collection even though I already did a full sync over USB (its about 60gb worth of music). I reset the app on the phone and couldn't get a connection anymore after, no matter what I tried. Gave up, I hardly have any additions to my collection and the playcount sync is nice to have but not a dealbreaker.
Yesterday I got an upgrade to Android 10. Did a hard reset on my phone, and after setting it up from scratch I though, lets give it another try. I also formatted my SD card btw.
I ran the app and tried to connect, and I got the "you have to do a wired sync first" error. Great news! that means it can connect to MB at least!.
I plugged in the USB cable, did a wired sync (remeber, wiped the card) so another 60gb of music and about 2 hours later tried the sync app again;
Server not found.
So maybe my firewall changed itself? so I installed the MusicBee Remote plugin, and didn't change my firewall settings. Works like a charm.
So the remote app can connect fine, and the windows firewall allows any incoming connection to MB over both UDP and TCP.
What am I doing wrong?.
p.s. I cant seem to figure out how to get a log out of the android app.
I've asked steven to add me to the alpha, as that seems to be able to output a log before connecting to the server.
