    Hi Thanks for the reply,

    Firewall should be disabled on both windows machines but I will check.

    I will run through those steps as soon as I am off work.
    How long should I wait after starting things up again before it should connect?

    - in Kodi settings, make sure you have "Announce these services to other systems via Zeroconf" ticked.
    - temporarily disable your firewall on both windows machine
    - shut down Kodi and the plugin
    - make sure there isn't a ghost HSPI_XBMC.exe process running
    - start the plugin
    - start Kodi

    does the plugin automatically connect?

    Hi,

    thanks for the prompt reply!

    So initially I had issues with the Plugin finding Kodi Automatically. I realized I didn't have Bonjour on both my Windows 8 HTPC and Windows 8 HS3 machines. Since then I have installed it on both. Even after installing it I had to manually go in and change the configuration to manually Map the IP address before it appeared and connected.

    It doesn't properly notice that it is disconnected and the status shows connected although the events clearly aren't working.

    I usually have restart the plugin and manually click connect.

    One thing I notice is that it did find my Kodi Android Client automatically that I was playing around with.

    I use the latest version of Kodi (15.1 I think) and the latest version of your plugin (the beta that you put out that has the parameter field)

    the plugin is supposed to try to connect everytime a Kodi instance announce itself.
    Some other users have reported the same kind of problem, but I did not manage to replicate it so far.

    Could you tell me a bit more about your setup: HS3 running on Linux or Windows? Kodi running on Linux or Windows? version of Kodi, version of the plugin?

    does it happen everytime you restart Kodi?
    when you exit Kodi, does the root device status correctly changes to Disconnected?

    thanks

    Hi Again,

    I have been really enjoying this plugin and have been making use of the great built in features, to control lights etc based on Kodi on my HTPC.

    I have noticed a couple things and was wondering if you could clarify things for me in regards to how the plugin connects to the Kodi.

    I have noticed that sometimes when I exit Kodi and re open I have to actually restart the plugin and manually connect to the Kodi client. Is this supposed to happen this way? Or will the plugin attempt a connection once Kodi announces itself.

    I was trying to create an event to mitigate this (in the situation where I would reboot the Kodi HTPC)

    Essentially I wanted it to try to force a connection 5 minutes if it was disconnected.

    Any thoughts or advice on this would be appreciated.
