I have no wifi. Can I connect app remote with a hotspot connection?

Re: Hotspot and app remote

People do it, but some have difficulty. We see reports that people have to name their hotspots with only alpha-numeric characters and no spaces (perhaps same for passwords?).

Also there have many posts from people who have not been able to get iPhones to connect -- or connect the first time but have trouble repeating. If you have an iPhone you want to use, please do a forum search for these posts.

Re: Hotspot and app remote

Did you resolve your issue? I am having same problem with my phone with both Roku and firestick. 

I use only a hotspo and can never get an app remote to work.
