That's because the Webserver itself stops once we choose to change profiles. The iOS remote app stop work is nothing more but a side effect for the webserver stop.

Well, I can confirm from the debug log that the webserver is also stopped when logging out of the current profile using the Android remote app, but I can still interact with XBMC and choose a different profile to log-in and the webserver is then restarted for the new profile. This tells me that stopping the webserver doesn't necessarily terminate the communications from the remote app to XBMC. That's why I suggested trying different iOS remote apps on the off-chance that one of them may be coded to work the same way as the Android one.

thanks for the info you provided

i don't have an Android device to test on but i can confirm that iOS app and accessing xbmc:8080 and use the remote option doesn't work while changing profiles...

maybe the Android app is using JSON API while iOS is using HTTP?

My son came by to visit and he had his iPad with him, so I took the opportunity to install the official iOS remote on it and test this issue with switching profiles. I can confirm that the remote app stops working as soon as the profile selection window is displayed. Since I don't have this problem using the Android remote app on this same XBMC system, I stand by my suggestions in post #29.

Has this ever been resolved? I've read quite a few posts here on the forum, and I can't really find anything. I just set up two profiles (one for my kids) and when I logged off to switch, the official iOS remote disconnects and you can't switch profiles. The only thing that works is connecting a keyboard and selecting the new profile. I've tried Commander and Sybu remotes as well, and both of those have the same issue. You can't connect after you log off. Not sure profiles make much sense if you can't use the iOS remote to select them. Any help would be appreciated.
