WDTV Live streaming 3rd generation devices built after Oct 2011 and the newest WDTV Play.

Auto Configuration

wRemote automatically finds your device through the Bonjour Service (ZeroConfig) on your mac. This is the same manner as the ios remote. Discovery of your device should work by default . However, discovery is largely dependent on your local network and router configuration. Some routers have the Bonjour (Zeroconfig) service turned off by default or may be incompatible. If your iPhone or iPad WDRemote works then wRemote will work.
