I’ll try again tonight. It makes no difference my TV is also on Dutch

it does not work. I have nothing to click on with app rights. And speciale app toegang heb ik niet.

I Had same issue. No settings whatsoever in the TV menu. Below steps worked for me.

At first the ADB command did nothing until I realised there was an extra space copied in the command (at the end) that caused it to not work. So when copy pasting the ADB command make sure to do not add the extra space at the end. Hope it works for you…

As far as I know I didn’t do anything special. Just install the app on your tv, open it to see the adres and add this to a flow in Homey

i tried it works i can send commands, but i get no feedback and nothing appears in the screen even after restart. The app is not working for me, just like that other Philips app also still does not work. While that ADB server works. what else could I send through that adb server ?

For u that is. I can tell u the app works here.
What model TV do u use?

Philips 32PFS6402/12 Android via ethernet cable it respons on the adb server.

Don’t know what else you can send through ADB. Maybe uninstall app from TV. Reinstall. Open app once, ADB command as in earlier post. Make sure not to add space behind ADB command. Oh and also make sure that in your flow to also not put in that pesky little space behind the IP address. And there is no confirmation after running the ADB other than in your ADB shell.

Great app!!! I’m running it on a 2020 Sony A85 Oled.
I have a problem with using danish letters Æ Ø Å
It’s working when not showing a picture url

It should show “Det ringer på døren” (danish for The doorbell rang)


I have heard from reliable sources that this is probably an issue in the android app and the only one who can change that is @rogro82 .

I found a way tot get pipup working without remote ADB Shell.

Go on your tv to apps.

Go to Google play store.

Search and download Developer Tools.

Open Developer Tools.

Go to Settings → Apps.

Go to Rechten → Speciale app toegang.

Go to Weergave voor andere apps

Rechten voor Pipup toestaan

This worked for me.

Looks nice. But it goes wrong with picture 2 I don’t have a special app acces my tv is well unlockt.

Please follow first this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1gLOi9vlhGc

to activate the developer mode, after you have.

Me neither.
I already unlocked the developer settings.

I have a OLED803 and I don’t see any option to setup any special permissions.

Edit: OK got it working :grin:

Found a old android phone and used abd shell to give the app permission on my tv.

Hi all,

I can’t get this to work on my android box. Ok, it does run community firmware, I admit :slight_smile:

It is a Minux Neo U9H with Android TV 7.1.2 on it. Pipup is running. With Logcat I can see the request from Homey coming in, followed by this message:

Unable to add window — token is not valid; is your activity running?

followed by a couple of other error messages but mostly referring to the above.

Apparently I need to add a line of code before it works…? I don’t know where.

Can someone help me out here?

I have been trying to get this to work but I can’t seem to get it working on my Philips 55oled903 tv.
I have installed the developer tools, activated developer settings but when going to app settings there just is no Special access or special rights section.

I don’t have an android phone or device so unsure if the command line solution mentioned can be done then (on Apple devices)?
