Getting Started (SPLRemote)

Thank you for downloading SPLRemote. If you're unsure of the requirements please check out this  article.

It is very important that StationPlaylist Pro is setup correctly in advance. Ensure you are running the latest version or v5.11 as a minimum.

Please do not purchase the in-app upgrade until you know the connection works. 

SETUP STATIONPLAYLIST PRO

Before we can connect SPLRemote we do need to make sure StationPlaylist Pro is setup properly. This can be done without impacting your on-air or streaming output. 

On the " View" menu, select "Options". On the Options window, select "Communications". 

SPLRemote uses the TCP Server NOT the Studio Monitor Server nor the VT Server. 

Select the Port number (Between 1024 and 65536, depending on your needs). Make sure you don't pick a port already in use by other applications. Enter or leave the " Send Response" as OK. Enable the TCP Server by checking the "Enabled" box. IP Restriction should be left alone (Mobile devices on WiFi will change their IP addresses frequently).

The Send Response must be entered as OK  - SPLRemote receives OK back and assumes a good response. 

A short video is available to help with this process.

WINDOWS FIREWALL

The port you selected must be allowed to accept incoming traffic. There are many guides on how to setup the Windows Firewall.  Here is one of them.

SETUP SPLRemote

When you first launch SPLRemote it should ask you to enter the server details and port number.

Enter your StationPlaylist computer's IP address (or machine name), then enter the port number you setup earlier. Press " Save & Verify" to test the connection. If successful you will receive a message pretty quickly. If it takes more than a few seconds, chances are it will fail. You should receive an error message. Check the TCPServer is enabled as well as the firewall allows the traffic through that port. 

For troubleshooting you may need to disable the PC firewall. Ensure your IT support is aware of this. (Some may have the Windows Firewall disabled anyway!).

Once connected, press "Status" and that will retrieve the current status of your StationPlaylist. "Live" and "Break Notes" will allow remote control but are only available after the purchase of a small in-app purchase.

Good luck.
