Step 2 - PAIRING WITH ITUNES running on another computer
When first run, rtRemote needs to be paired with your iTunes library. This is a 30 second task that the app will guide you through on first launch.
Once you have installed rtRemote, please ensure that iTunes is up and running and that your iTunes library has been shared on your network. Your library should now appear within the rtRemote app and is ready for pairing. Touch to select the library in rtRemote and the pairing process will begin.
You will see a new device appear in your iTunes library called 'rtRemote'. If you now click this device, you will be asked to enter a PIN number - enter 0000. Your library will now be paired with rtRemote and you will be able to access all your music and video. Remember, this process only needs to be performed once.
