    I'm also unable to enter a valid IP address - like the gentleman above, the last 2 octets are cut off.

    The exact bug - it's cutting off the IP address if you have a "0000" (or 0) octet. Everything to the right of the 0. is being cut off.

    My iOS 5 iPod Touch is cutting off the last two octets no matter what the address. E.g., I want 192.168.1.205, and I get 192.168. I also tried 192.168.1.9, and it still truncates it.

    It's also parsing the zip code and putting a "," in the thousand position (12,345).

    Are we talking of entering an IP address in Waltz's browser app, such as 192.168.1.27??

    Try a different browser!

    Yokay-

    I was merrily testing on browswers on my laptop, going back to RAC's question, not realizing that subsequent notes were all re the iPhone. Can confirm the glitch on iOS5, iPhone 4.

    Same thing here. Upgraded 2 iphone 4 to ios 5 and now have this same issue. My old iphone 3g on ios 4.1 does not exhibit this issue.

    Must be a difference in safari between ios 4 and 5.

    Hope Waltz can fix this soon.

    Love the app by the way. Use it everyday on my notebook using chrome.

    This might be fixed now. I'm downloading iOS5 now so I'll know later this evening. The side effect of the fix is that you won't automatically get the numeric keypad.

    It is fixed on my iPod Touch, iOS 5. Thanks so much!

    No biggie on having to toggle the keyboard, but coming up numeric was an elegant touch, IMHO! :)

    Bingo! Works a treat on the iPhone 4 with iOS5. Had to reboot phone to refresh the Safari page, but then we were good to go.....
    Thanks, man.

    Well now i can get the ip address to take. I can change channels using the keypad, but the controls tab is cutoff at the bottom and the page won't scroll up or down so I cant reach any of the DVR control buttons.

    Also, the channels tab loads and this tab does scroll up and down.

    Seems like you're making progress. I'm on an iphone 4 with ios 5.

    I think that is working. On the iPhone the control tab only has the one screen worth of info. The macros do need updating for the latest DVR software though. I'll get to that mid next week or sooner.
