Pioneer BPD-LX55 not able to use the Pioneer control App


Standard Member
I want to try out the Pioneer iControlAV5 app as my Blu Ray player is listed as a compatible European Model for the App on Google play

I have a Sony Experia running Android version 7 which is compatible with the app, once downloaded onto my phone i made sure my player was wired to my home network direct to my Router which my phone was also connected to via wireless, but that app failed to find the player and I was not able to find a list of compatible players to select it from, I also used the option to manually enter the IP address which I did but was still unable to link to my player..I followed these instructions supplied by Pioneer japan
Pioneer ControlApp (

now the only box I could not tick is that I am unable to turn WiFi Direct off on my seems ludicrous to me that would be the only thing stopping me from being able to use the app
I was wondering if anyone else had experience of connection issues when using the app, or knew of any work arounds

Thanks in advance
