The Computer Audiophile posted a topic in SoftwareHi Guys - I have a weird problem with iTunes and the Apple Remote app for iOS. Here are the details. Without an Internet connection I connect my iPhone directly to my MacBook Pro via an AdHoc computer to computer wireless network. I can connect just fine. The problem: As soon as I launch the Remote app and connect to the iTunes library running on the MacBook Pro I receive the following message "An error occurred while contacting the radio tuning service. Check your Internet connection, or try again later." See the screenshot for a visual illustration. Here is what I believe is happening: As soon as the Remote app connects to a library iTunes automatically attempts to connect to the Internet and retrieve updated information about the Internet radio stations and categories it offers. Users can see in the attachment iTunes says, "Contacting tuning service ... Refreshing Category List". Because there is no Internet connection this attempt fails and produces the error message several times over and over after the user clicks OK. Here is what I've tried as a remedy: Disable Radio from within Parental controls - Didn't help Removed the Remote App and reinstalled - Didn't help Forget all remotes within iTunes - Didn't help These guys have the issue as well but some have been remedied by the above items. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3485705?start=0&tstart=0 I'd love some help from the resident experts. To reproduce the error create an AdHoc network with your Mac, join the AdHoc network with an iOS device. Connect to the iTunes library via the Remote App. Thanks Guys!
