Hi there was an auto update done today (17/12/2015) after which the Kodi remote control app stopped working on all my devices. All control options in Kodi checked. Tried port 80 and 8080. No joy. Any ideas?
An auto update of what? From OSMC or from a Kodi Addon? I doubt that there was any auto update from OSMC today unless you had your OSMC box sleeping for the last 2 weeks.
I suggest you activate debuging and provide logs to review. Also do a
sudo netstat -nlpt and post the output.
