    No such animal in network settings, on my Sony Google TV

    ERROR System.Net.Sockets.SocketException (0x80004005): No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it at

    System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient..ctor(String hostname, Int32 port) at SonyTV.Net.SonyTVClient..ctor(String serverAddress, Int32 serverPort) at HSPI_SonyTV.SonyTVApp.InitSonyTVClient()

    MODEL #Internet TV 2012

    Are you asking some sort of question here?


      This is the forum for the Sony TV / SPUD plugin, and I stated in my title what the problem is...


        Respectively sir, you have not provided much info other than stating you beleive there should be some network setting on your TV that is causing an error message in HS.

        Help us help you. The more info you provide the easier it will be to assist you.

        The error messages are complaining that the driver can't connect to IP on port 20060. Is your Sony TV.

        What is
        What is not working?
        Was it working and just stopped?
        Has anything been changed?


          the setting is supposed to be:

          Settings > Network > Home network setup > IP control > Simple IP control > Enable

          If you don't see it, your TV may not be compatible.


            The fact that the target machine actively refused the connection usually means:
            1. Wrong port
            2. Sony TV does not have the option active, therefore it is not listening on that port
            3. Firewall/router/3rd-party-software is interfering somewhere between HS and Sony-TV
            4. Something else.

            Fire up a telnet client session otherwise, see if you can connect.

            edit: nvm, spud already answered on where to verify #2 item and I need to type faster


              Thanks SPUD, it must not be compatible then.

              And drhtmal, of course my IP is; why would I try to connect to a different IP than the TV? And I stated THE model of my TV in my first post. This is an older Sony Google TV, and it doesn't appear that it has the option to enable Simple IP in the menu; as I also stated. Thanks, but no thanks.
