  1. Please can anyone help me out to fix my MAC address? I entered the Ethernet Address rather in place of the wireless in the trimeplay and is not work anymore. All i see is “waiting connection”

    • I’m looking into this problem. I wonder if Roku is doing something to block it. Starting to wonder if Roku is going to roll something out of their own like an official mirroring app. There have been rumors for over a year that they were.

      • Any update on this? It looked like a perfect solution, but I too am just getting Waiting for connection. I’ve tried on a Roku LT and a Roku 3.

        • I was able to get it all working again by resetting my Roku. I wrote about it. It is quick and easy. Just remove the Trimeplay app from your Roku first, then go to factory reset. let it run its course. It will reinstal all of your apps. Add the trimeplay app again an make note of the Mac address and finish it out. It worked for me.

          • Tried your fix exactly. Still encountering the same “waiting for connection” issue.

            Any other ideas or insight?

  2. Just getting a waiting for connection message forever. Pretty sure I entered it correctly although 0 vs O was at play.

  3. I have same problem – waiting for connection (forever). Google for solution and found out there is no much talking about this issue except this website. Wish a solution coming up soon.

  4. Hey I think I entered the wrong IP address, now I’m getting waiting to connect trying reset but to no avail, can anyone help
