You need a running webinterface on your receiver. The plugins OpenWebIf and Webinterface are supported. If connection problems occur, make sure the webinterface plugin is installed on your receiver and reachable using a webbrowser.
Choose the option "Search" to detect the receiver in your local network. If this doesn't work, enter the data manually.
For the default profile you should provide the local IP address or Hostname. For port you use the port of the webinterface, e.g. port 80. HTTPS and login data should not be needed, else enable it or change your plugin settings.
If the connection fails, try to open the webinterface using a webbrowser. If it works, use the same parameters for the app. It is recommended to use a static IP adress which does not change. You can set the IP address to static on your receiver in settings - system - network adapter.
The first profile should always be a internal access to your receiver within the local network. You can later add a second profile for external access. See External access.
Important: If the connection fails, try opening the same parameters using a webbrowser on the same device e.g. on this address http://192.168.0.1:80 (change IP address and port). If this is not working, check if the plugin Webinterface or OpenWebIf is install. Make sure not both plugins are installed at the same time and blocking ports.
For some features (e.g. picons, movie locations, cover, ...) ftp connection is needed. You need to enable ftp server on your receiver (should be enabled by default on port 21). Please provide the username (should be "root" by default) and password (password of your receiver image) to access the server.
If you did not setup a password yet, use putty to connect using telnet or SSH with the user root. With the command 'passwd' you can set a new password.
With the plugin 'Passwd' on the receiver, you can also reset the password.
FTP access should only be needed within the local network. For a second profile with external access you can choose 'Disable for this profile'.
You can stream live TV channels and recordings to your Android Device. Server should be the same address like your webinterface connection.
Please use port 8001 for streaming live TV and port 80 for recordings (if your webinterface port is different, this port must be changed too). If your receiver supports transcoding and you want to use it, please enable transcoding in settings and use port 8002.
The EPG data displayed in the app is synchronized from the receiver. The app can only display EPG data which is available on the receiver. You can update these manually or automatically.
To display channel logos you need to setup your ftp connection. This is optional and can be disabled. You need to have a FTP server enabled on you receiver which should be the case by default.
Please provide the login data to your receiver (default username is root) and the password of your receiver.
If picons changed you can update them in menu - picons - update picons.
The app dream EPG does not provide picons. You need to install picons on your receiver first. You can install it from these sources:
1.) Plugin installation from the feed (if available by your image provider)
2.) Forum download
3.) Picon sources from the internet, e.g.: https://picons.xyz/downloads/?dir=binaries-srp-full
Recommended picons: XPicons 220x132, transparent, light for dark skin, dark for light skin.
You can directly install IPK packages by connecting via SSH to your receiver (using Putty):
wget https://xxx.xxx/picon.ipk (replace by your URL)
opkg install picon.ipk
Now picons should be available here/picon or her /usr/share/enigma2/picon
