Connection problems: android & mac mini


I am evaluating Audirvana and I can’t get remote to work. No matter what I try it keeps saying it can’t find any computer running the app.
Host computer: mac mini (wi-fi)
Phone: Pixel 3 (android 10)
Both devices are on the same network, firewall is OFF on mac.
Rebooting router makes no difference.

Note: Prior to Audirvana installation I had vnc and Anydesk running on my mac and I could and can connect to them from the phone with no problems.
Also, I have Kodi and bubbleUPNP server installed and these work fine with bubble mobile app with no problem.
I also installed Roon trial and this app also worked immediately and with no hiccups.

Do I move on and forget about Audirvana or there is hope for me?

Thank you!


Hello @PeterB,

Have you tried to restart your WiFi router ? It may have a problem transmitting the connection used by Audirvana Remote (Like the Apple Remote app that controls iTunes, which can be blocked for the same reasons)

Get an iOS device and forget about Android. :wink:

Yes, tried twice, soft and hard reset, it made no difference :frowning:

What’s curious to me (as a dev) is that the app immediately shows ‘no connection screen’ while other apps sometimes take a sec to establish a connection.

and yes, it works if i use an iphone
unfortunately its not an option at this time

is it possible to get it to work on android?
