I am not talking about PIN ... PIN is already disabled in the setup.

Thanks Ben, I thought that might be the only solution. You saved me a

But how do others use it? Or anyone with latest SVN have keyboard?
I would not mind this window if I could click on OK with my remote.

No firewall or anything else. Backend = frontend, they are both
