  • As far as I know there is no API to get it. But there are other ways.

    you can check this on your DHCP server.

    if you know the IP address (shown in debugging mode) you can ping the IP address with your computer and then use the command arp -a this shows the Mac addresses known to your computer. So you must first ping it to make sure it will lookup the macaddress for you.

      Thanks Niels

      I put the remote in debug mode, but the only IP address which has been displayed is that of the Brain.

    • Paul Spee then just login to your DHCP server. Most probably being your router.

  • I got my Remote replaced and have no way figuring out the MAC address, which I need as my Wifi only allows known MAC addresses to connect to it. How to learn about the MAC address of the remote?

    • Daniel Schneiter best way is to search in the router options where you can see all conected devices.

    • nuro Eventually found out how to retrieve the list of connected devices to sn Apple timecapsule via undocumented keyboard & mouse-click shortcut. I hope a future version of the NEEO sw will display this info in the UI
