App won't pair with humax dtr2100
I'm having a lot of difficulty getting the app to pair with the DVR. The app, running on Android 8.1.0, has no problem finding the DVR, but when I ok the Allow box on the DVR, there is a long pause before I get the message that it can't pair because the box is "not connected to the internet". This is obviously untrue because iPlayer, All4 etc are working.
Once, a couple of weeks ago, after many attempts, it did miraculously pair and all seemed well(ish - more on that later), but then some recordings I had scheduled failed to record, and I thought maybe disconnecting and reconnecting might fix that, so I disconnected and now I'm back to square one - I can't pair them at all now. I've tried restarting after switching off the mains but that didn't help.
The reason I said it worked well-ish was that for the entire time they were paired, MyTV was unbearably slow - none of those ridiculous and un-neccessary tiles (what's wrong with a list ffs?) had thumbnails (all blank), and navigation between them was glacial in the extreme. Immediately after disconnecting the app the thumbnails began to populate and MyTv is back to its annoying but usably quick self.
