SYBU for Kodi - Setup

Kodi.tv must be installed on some computer or device on your network and must be running before you continue.

On Kodi set the following

Kodi (v17 Krypton - v21 Omega) – Settings level=Standard

System > Service Settings > Control > Web server > Allow remote control via HTTP > Enabled

System > Service Settings > Control > Web server > Port > 8080

(use 8080 or specific port advised by your technical support, For Raspberry or OpenElec, LibreElec you can use 80)

System > Service Settings > Control > Web server > Username> kodi

System > Service Settings > Control > Web server > Password> set a password

Note: as from v19 and later a password must be set (but you can disable "Require authentication" to allow connecting without the password)

System > Service Settings > Control > Application Control > Allow remote control from applications on this system > Enabled

System > Service Settings > Control > Application Control > Allow remote control from applications on other system > Enabled

System > Service Settings > General > Zeroconf > Announce services to other systems > Enabled

(If this option is missing you likely have an Android box/device. Kodi v17 on Android does not have Zeroconf support (it was removed – please ask on the Kodi forum to reinstate this functionality).   This is a Kodi issue, not the remote.  The Sybu Remote will not be able to automatically discover Kodi,  please manually setup as explained in section If Sybu App does not automatically find Kodi)

Kodi on Windows 10: Zeroconf is part of  Apple Bonjour Print Services.  If you have error enabling this option, please install.  The latest for x86/64 (although old) of Bonjour for Windows can be downloaded here Download Bonjour Print Services for Windows v2.0.2


Kodi (v12 – v16) – Settings level=Standard

System > Settings > Services > Webserver > Allow control of Kodi via HTTP > Enabled

System > Settings >  Services > Webserver > Port  > 8080

(use 8080 or specific port advised by your technical support, For Raspberry, OpenElec or LibreElec you can use 80)

System > Settings >  Services > Webserver > Username > kodi

System > Settings >  Services > Webserver > Password>

System > Settings > Services > Remote Control > Allow remote control by programs on this system > Enabled

System > Settings > Services > Remote Control > Allow remote control by programs on other systems > Enabled

Firewall

If prompted allow Kodi  through the firewall.

On SYBU for Kodi App

If Sybu App does not automatically find Kodi

Some Windows Desktops and some Android devices cannot automatically discover Kodi by default. Use the manual setup below. (To allow Windows to be autodiscovered by the iPhone/iPad install iTunes or read Zeroconf section below)

Kodi v17-v21: Kodi IP address: Kodi Main Menu > SYSTEM  > System Info / System Information > Summary > IP address


Kodi v12-v16: Kodi IP address: Kodi Main Menu > SYSTEM > System Info > IP address

Zeroconf – auto discovery

If you receive a warning 'Failed to start zeroconf' consider installing a Zeroconf service for your operating system. This will allow the iPhone to find the Kodi host on its name. If it is a Windows Desktop/Laptop I suggest you install iTunes. To learn more about Zeroconf, Bonjour and auto-discovery of a service for the various operating systems Zeroconf : read more here....
