My sons are into playing Minecraft Pocket Edition. I have it installed on a Samsung smartphone, and our Nvidia Shield TV. They would like to play together in the same game, but I haven't been successful getting it to work. When I create a new game with Multiplayer enabled, the other player doesn't see the new game in the list of choices. They are not logged in via Xbox Live (no accounts) but I don't think that is required for local games. No server either; just trying for a simple hosted game that the second player can join.
The NVidia Shield is connected via Ethernet cable, and the smartphone is on the Wifi network of course. Will that work, or do they both need to be on Wifi? Can the Nvidia Shield be connected to Ethernet and Wifi simultaneously, or do I need to pull the cable and default to Wifi when they want to play together?
