Remote app for iPad Wont show songs but iPhone Will

Hi All
I have a Strange problem with airport Express and airtunes
From my iPad 4.2.1 running Remote app for iPad if i search for an artist, like Gary Moore, it shows the artist name, but when i Press the name it doesnt display the songs with this artist, it says no songs found.
But if i use the same app on both my iPhone 4 and my iPod touch, and do the same search and Press the artist name, it shows All the songs that i have with this artist
Both the iPad and the iPhone connects to the same airtunes library, on the same machine with iTunes 10.1?
Does anybody have any ideas of what is wrong
I have tried to reinstall the app on the iPad, but that diednt work, i have tried to delete the library on the iPad with no luck
Aby help would be apreciated
Sincerely

I know this is an old question, but I had the same problem and found the solution somewhere else and thought I'd post it here as this thread comes up when googling for the answer.
It appears as though any songs without an "Album" don't appear. In iTunes select all songs without an album, right click and select "Get Info" and give them an Album name (e.g. "Unknown" or "Singles"). This might also apply to songs without other tags.

  • Can't set up FiOS Mobile Remote app for iPad

    I was able to register the FiOS Mobile Remote app for iPad with my login and password but I'm not able to set it up.
    I follow the instructions to
    click Menu
    click Widgets
    click FiOS Mobile Remote
    I get the following error message:
    Mobile Remote
    Network Error
    Unable to process your request at this time.
    Please try again.
    If the broblem continues, please try restarting your Set-Top Box
    I've turned off the power to the cable twice but still get the same message.
    How can I get the app working?

    I installed my new DVRs last night and tried to reactive the Mobile Remote app, but got the same error. I wonder if they're having issue with the app (so it's probably not just you).

  • Remote for ipad, cant find songs, but my iphone can, on the same network

    hi all
    have a very odd problem, and apple cant seem to help me, i´m using the app called remote, to control my itunes music, from both my iphones, ipod touch and the ipad, they all connect to the same itunes music library and i can control them just fine, and choose the music and which airplay unit i want to listen to.
    so far so good
    but on the ipad, if i do a search for BEE GEES, it shows the artist name BEE GEES, but when i press the artist name, to view the songs, it says no songs, and that i should buy some from itunes.
    but when i do the exact same search from either the iphones or the ipod touch, the search then again shows BEE GEES and when i press the artist, it shows the songs that i have with that artist.
    the strange thing is that if i search for a song name on the ipad, like NIGHT FEVER it see´s the artist as BEE GEES and i can play it, i just cant seem to do a search by ARTIST, then it returns with no songs????
    i have made a small video of this, that you can see here, to further explain the issue
    http://gallery.me.com/blackbox100/100023/Remote%20problem%20iPad
    i have talked to apple numerous times, but they cant offer me any explanation
    i have tried to delete the app on the ipad, and reinstall it, but that didnt help, i have tried to hook up to another itunes directory, and that didnt help either?
    any help would be appreciated

    I have exactly the same problem.
    I made some short "tests" and it seems that if the "Album" field on the info of a song (ID3 tag) is empty, it doesn't appear on the search result of an artist (only on iPad's remote app).
    So, if you fill the "album" field of a song (on the "get info" option) then it will be displayed on the list of songs of the particular artist that you have searched for, on the "remote app" on the iPad.
    As a fast solution (mostly a stopgap) I would recommend that you will open iTunes on your computer and highlight all the songs that have empty the "album" field on the "get info" window (ID3 tag). Then right click and choose "get info". In the "Album" field, type a space or let's say the word "unknown" and click ok. Of course if you know the real name of the Album, you will fill that field with the right information.
    After that, all the tracks should be displayed under every artist in the iPad's Remote app.
    Apple should give a solution on that bug. It is strange that there is no such problem on iPhone's Remote application, but only on iPad's.

  • Remote app on iPad connects to iTunes but then loses connection.

    Hi,
    Basically, I can get the app on my  iPad to connect to iTunes, but if I then start doing something else on my iPad, or my computer goes to sleep, then the remote won't connect again. Even if I wake my macbook and try to connect it again.
    If I press 'add an iTunes library' in the remote app, nothing appears on iTunes.
    To solve the problem, I have to restart my computer.
    I just checked to see if my iPhone connects and it worked straight away. Maybe its a problem with my iPad?
    Can anyone suggest anything?
    Oscar

    I too have this problem and made it worse. Under Mavericks and iOS7 everything set up very easily and worked beautifully like Apple stuff usually does. Then a couple of weeks ago I took the dive and updated to Yosemite, iTunes 12 and iOS8 and then I would occasionally lose connection with my iTunes library as described by the second poster. Very aggravating. So I made a bigger mistake and deleted the library from my iPad Remote app and whenever I started it up again it would say 'Add a device'. I clicked and a randomly generated 4 digit number appears with the exact instructions: 'To add an iTunes library, open iTunes on your computer and choose Remote from the tab bar'. I went to iTunes and searched EVERYWHERE for this Remote tab bar and could not find it. I then went to iTunes Preferences: Devices and clicked the button 'Forget All Remotes' thinking this may reset something in iTunes and make the Remote tab appear somehow to start from scratch. Wrong! Now there is absolutely no connection between the Remote app on my devices and iTunes on my computer.
    Can anyone point me to this Remote tab in iTunes?? If I can find that then I think I should be able to fix this.
    Geez, talk about effing up what should be (and was) a very simple app.

  • Apple TV 2 - Remote app for iPad

    I've got an Apple TV 2 and an iPad running iOS 4.2.1. Apple TV is wired to my router via ethernet, iPad is connected to the same router via Wifi. Home Sharing is turned on all around.
    What I really want is the ability to view and control all of my media on my Apple TV via the Remote app WITHOUT having to turn on my TV. Right now I can't do that. What am I doing wrong???
    I've installed (and reinstalled) the Remote app. When I run it, I can see both the Apple TV and my iTunes library on my iMac. When I open the Apple TV on the iPad, I only get a generic page that says "Access iTunes libraries on Apple TV" - BUT I can't see any media. I can open the "gestures" menu and can use the drag to navigate option to control the Apple TV.
    I can also access my iTunes library on my iMac to control the music there. But that doesn't do my any good with the Apple TV.
    What am I doing wrong??? I've looked through the forms here but can't find the answer.

    You certainly can use Remote to control the ATV without turning the tv on as that is exactly what I do when I just want to listen to music, streamed from iTunes vis the ATV to my receiver. I simply open up Remote which connects to the Apple TV, showing my shared library on the left. From here I can chose any music to play and it plays via the ATV. I don't need to use AirPlay.

  • New Ipad cannot connect to i-Tunes for setup without Wi-fi, but iphone will connect

    I just bought a new Ipad and I keep getting the error message.  I don't have access to wifi, so I have to use Itunes (connected to my computer).
    Problem is, when I plug in the ipad I get the following error message:
    "We could not complete your itunes store request.  The network connection was reset.  Make sure your network connection is active and try again."
    I tried the parental controls thing, and I know my firewall isn't blocking it .. because my iphone is plugged up right now and transfering my purchases .. so I know itunes is working .. but why will it not work with my ipad???
    So frustrating.   I just want to use my new ipad.

    So far I have followed every tutorial I have found and every time I do I get a different error message.  Here are some of them:
    "itunes could not connect to this ipad. An unknown error ocurred. (OxE800000A)"
    Then after I followed a tutorial I got:
    "itunes could not connect to the ipad "ipad" because an invalid response was received from the device"
    .. then another tutorial, and another error message
    ""itunes could not connect to this ipad. An unknown error ocurred. (OxE8000003)"
    I've tried 3 different cables .. I've uninstalled itunes and reinstalled it,  and tried on 2 different computers
    It's like I am just getting cycles of error messages.  Is there just something wrong with this ipad?

    Already gone through troubleshooting guide a zillion times. Thanks.

    This worked for me... A little time consuming but once you get rolling it goes GREAT... Thanks....
    I got my artwork and saved it to my Desktop
    Opened up Microsoft Paint and clicked on "File" and "Open" and found it to get it on the screen to resize it
    Clicked "resize" and a box for changing it opened up
    Checked the box "Pixels" and "Unchecked maintain aspect ratio"
    Set Horizontal for 640 and Vertical for 480
    Clicked on "OK" and went back to "File" and did a "Save As" and chose JPEG Picture
    It came up "File Already Existed" and clicked "OK" (really did not care about the original artwork I found because wrong size)
    Went to iTunes and on the movie right clicked on "Get Info", clicked on "Details", then "Artwork"
    Go to the little box on the top left that shows your old artwork and click on it to get the little blue border to appear around it and hit "Delete" to make it gone
    Click on "Add Artwork" and find it where you put the one from above on your Desktop and hit "Open" and OK and your new artwork is now there and all good.
    Sounds like a lot of steps to follow but after around 5 or so you will fly through it. This worked perfect on my iPhone 6 Plus and I have artwork on my Home Videos now.

  • TS1741 I am having difficulty connecting my Remote App on iPad to iTunes. It used to work fine, but with latest iTunes and latest Remote, I can't get it to work. iTunes should open a 'pop up' window to add 4 digit code, but nothing happens. Any clues plea

    Would appreciate in connecting Remote App on iPad to iTunes. It used to work find, before iTunes 11.0 - but now pop up window to input  4 digit code does not appear. Any ideas how to prompt window to open on iMac? Remote App works OK, but says that Home Sharing is not Turned On, although it is. Both devices are logged into my profile account.

    You no longer need the 4 digit code in iTunes 11.
    iTunes (10.0.1 or later)
    Open iTunes on your Mac or PC.
    iTunes 11 or newer: Turn on Home Sharing in iTunes by going to File > Home Sharing> Turn on Home Sharing.
    iTunes 10.7 or older: Turn on Home Sharing in iTunes by going to Advanced > Turn on Home Sharing.
    Connect iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to a Wi-Fi network that is connected to the local network that your Mac or PC is also connected to.
    Open the Remote app (software version 2.0 or later) on your mobile device.
    Turn on Home Sharing in the Remote Settings screen. Make sure to sign into the same Home Sharing account you used to sign in to from iTunes on your computer.
    Once Home sharing is enabled for both your computer and your mobile device, Remote app will be be able to view and control audio and video playback in your iTunes library.

  • TS1741 I cannot get the remote app for Apple tv work on either my iPad or iPhone. Home sharing is "on". Any ideas?

    Why won' remote app for Apple tv work on my iPad or iPhone?  Home sharing is turned on.

    A frequent cause of consistent failure to enable AirPlay or HomeSharing at all, is the service being blocked on the network. Make sure your network isn't hidden, has a unique name, that MAC address authentication is disabled, security is set to use WPA 2 Personal and that there is only one router/device acting as a DHCP server and providing NAT services.
    Make sure your router/computer allows access over the following ports
    Port
    Type
    Protocol
    Used By
    80
    TCP
    HTTP
    AirPlay

    49163
    UDP

    Bonjour/AirPlay
    Refer to your router manual/manufacturer for any settings that are specific to that model.
    Another frequent cause of consistent failure to enable AirPlay or HomeSharing at all, is security software, in many cases configuring it correctly, disabling it or even uninstalling it can help, but in some cases the security software can cause problems that simply reconfiguring, disabling or uninstalling cannot reverse.
    If you are consistently unable to activate AirPlay, have tried all the steps in this article and have security software installed on your system, you might benefit from contacting its provider or participating in any online forums they run to discuss the matter with them

  • Recently updated the the apple tv remote app for my iPhone4. Now can no longer turn on the apple tv "box" on/off using iPhone app.  Only thing that shows on iP screen is music library.  Home Sharing is on. Any help appreciated.

    Recently updated the the apple tv remote app for my iPhone4. Now can no longer turn on the apple tv "box" on/off using iPhone app as I used to do before the update.  Only thing that shows on iPhone screen is music library.  Home Sharing is on. Any help appreciated.  Sorry if this is not exactly the right place to post this!

    One clue: I have found a reliable way to solve the problem when it happens.
    In my network, I have the main Airport Extreme (Gen 1) which is connected to my router, which distributes IP addresses to my internal subnet.  The other two AEs (one Gen 4, one Gen 5) are set to extend the network.
    When I get this problem with an AppleTV 2 that can "see" my library, but when I try to open it, it says it couldn't find the library, it seems to have to do with a change in which Airport Extreme it's talking to.
    If I restart the main Airport Extreme from the Airport Utility, effectively restarting the entire wireless network, then when the network resumes, every AppleTV 2 is happy again.
    Unfortuntely, the problem does seem to recur - but I'm wondering if it's because temporary interference leads an AppleTV 2 to try to connect to a different AE, and somehow that's mucking with the Home Sharing.  Remember, internet access (Trailers, Store, Netflix) have no issues.  Purely Home Sharing.

    It reboots it but unplugging can also rectify communication issues like this. A restore would be the next step.

    It would depend on your definition of "Fix"
    Your iPod touch running OS 4.2 has a ZOOM feature which will enable you to see the screen more clearly.
    To turn Zoom on or off got to:
    Settings > General > Accessibility > Zoom and tap the Zoom On/Off switch.
    _To Zoom in or out_:
    Double-tap the screen with three fingers. By default, the screen is magnified 200 percent. If you manually change the magnification (by using the tap-and-drag gesture, described below), iPod touch automatically returns to that magnification when you zoom in by double-tapping with three fingers.
    Increase magnification: With three fingers, tap and drag toward the top of the screen (to increase magnification) or toward the bottom of the screen (to decrease magnification). The tap-and-drag gesture is similar to a double-tap, except you don’t lift your fingers on the second tap—instead, drag your fingers on the screen. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger.
    _Move around the screen_:
    When zoomed in, drag or flick the screen with three fingers. Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger so that you can see more of the screen. Hold a single finger near the edge of the display to pan to that side of the screen image. Move your finger closer to the edge to pan more quickly. When you open a new screen, Zoom always goes to the top-middle of the screen.
    _Large Text_:
    Large Text lets you make the text larger in alerts, and in Calendar, Contacts, Mail, Messages, and Notes. You can choose 20-point, 24-point, 32-point, 40-point, 48-point, or 56-point text.
    Set the text size: In Settings, choose General > Accessibility, tap Large Text, then tap the text size you want.
    I hope this has helped a little - other than this option I think it pretty much is what it is.
    BTW - This information can be found on page 208 of the iPod Touch iOS 4.2 Users Guide.
    Best wishes..
