I know from running a kodi/OpenElec image on Pi B+ that is sufficient to activate zeroconf and to set up a http user/password in the kodi settings in order to make it dicoverable for smartphone remote controls.
I tried to achieve the same when running kodi on max2play.
I can use kodi fine but I need to connect a USB mouse and also connect a video device. This said, the main functionality works fine, but in Settings/Services/Webserver, when activating “allow control of Kodi via HTTP” I get a popup “Webserver: Failed to start”.
How can I fix this?
Also, when renaming the device, the name is again the old one after restarting kodi.
I found that sometimes when starting Kodi, the message “failed to start RC service” is showing up. I guess this might be the reason.
But why would the RC server not startup?
I am using an unmodified max2play image and have not significantly changed the configuration. I have only entered the license email, added kodi and that’s it.
