    Things that will help make iPhone Remote more efficient.

    To do this go- System Preferences ==> Accounts ===> Select your User Account and then click log in items. You can Now press the + icon in the lower left hand column and select iPhone Remote from your applications folder.

    2. Some users have experienced there mac's Local IP address changes at start up. To give your Mac a fixed IP sign into your router configuration page.
    -From Your Router Config Page Click LAN IP SETUP
    -From there under the Address Reservation click Add
    -Now select the computer that you are using for the media Streaming and Select Add then Apply

    Hope this helps.
