I've just got a Pi so new to this.
My Pi is connected to my TV. It has openELEC and Kodi on it. I was wondering if, when the Pi is on, but not connected to the TV, if it's possible to instruct films to download to the Pi using an app and then watch them from the Pi ... via an app?
I've found remotes that access the Pi when it's connected to the TV but as soon as the TV is on a different HDMI port .... they can't find it. And the ones I've seen don't enable viewing the films on the smart device.
I'm using current a IOS device for apps.
Sorry for the question but learning every day.
