    Hi all,

    I absolutely cannot get the iPhone remote app to work with itunes for whatever reason!

    it's driving me crazy never had any issues on my old macbook, its defo on the same wifi, i can ping it etc, I'm faily handy with OSX and the like as i'm a software developer, so I know it's not a firewall issue and the phone is on wifi.

    it just doesn't pop up to let me enter the code in iTunes under devices when I'm trying to register the Phone with the machine,

    for the record the phone has been synced with the itunes library in question and I have clicked the forget all remotes button in iTunes prefs, and the 'look for iphone remotes' box is checked

    so I've pretty much done everything bar uninstall itunes is that really necessary, is it worth deleting the itunes prefs file??

    thanks for any advice,

    Try readding the wireless connection on your iPhone. I remember having this issue a while ago and that's what fixed it.

    Can't remember what caused it.
