Raspberry Pi Host no control

PelicanMedia Posts: 14 ✭✭

I have a selection of Raspberry Pi's with the latest version of TV host installed.

After the last update, I have not been able to control these devices. I can view the desktop but unable to control/send receive files etc.

The version installed on Pi's:

The version installed on Windows laptop:

Originally installed from the .deb file here:

Entry in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/teamviewer.list :

deb stable main

Some help, please? Or when will there be an update pushed out to fix this issue?

    the rest of my TeamViewer IDs are done, but I still can't access my 2 Raspberry pi 3 b +.  when connecting the connection drops or connects and the image is static.

    I have another pi 3 b + that is working perfectly.

    I tried to see if the problem was the internet connection but it is not.

    I second this issue.

    Since a distribution update yesterday Teamviewer fail to display in a Win 10 Client.

    Not quiet sure if there is a relation between both events, but likely.

    Seems the connection will be stopped imediatly after being established.

    If you need more detailed informations, don´t hasitate to ask

    Tnks! Yes, I'm trying to access Pi from Win 10.

    Any way to solve the problem?

  • Just chiming in to say I too am having this problem after updating rpi

    Yet again, another update pushed out with out testing. Typical TeamViewer attitude, "That will do, push to production".

    Same here. Do you know how to go back to a previous version?

    Same here since 15.16.8 on Raspberry PI. Unable to connect from macOS or iOS.

    Unless you know the URL to the previous version's installation file, no.

    For now, I'd just carry on banging your head against the wall!

    Do you know if a register user open a bug? Do you know if Team Viewer employee monitor these Forum?.

    You can always try, I've never had any luck with them.

    Monitor and take any notice are 2 different things.

    Same here. Worked well before 15.16,8. Any idea to downgrade?

    I want to provide some feedback on TeamViewer:           

    I use the windows computer as the main control terminal and the raspberry pie as the controlled terminal,           

    Software version: TeamViewer host_ 15.17.6_ armhf           

    After remote connection, about 3 seconds later, team viewer on raspberry pie flashes back           

    Hope to help me solve it. Thank you very much

    Hey all - I had the same issue. I resolved it by running 15.5.5 which I pulled off an old pi. That seems to be stable on the new version of Buster. maybe the admin of this forum could have that posted here for folks to use

    Hi, I use the TeamViewer Remote Access Licence to work remotely on several Raspberry Pi 4. It works perfectly on one of them but since 2021 May the screen freezes on my IMac and teamviewer shuts down on the raspberry Pi - the connection cuts.

    Is there anybody with the same problem? I would be really happy to get this problem solved because I actually pay for TeamViewer and it doesn´t work.

    I am happy about any idea.

    Same here. Nobody seems to care at TeamViewer. TV unusable on Raspberry Pi for months.

    Same here since 15.16.8 on Raspberry PI. I don't where to find version 15.5.5 as you propose TMRFE. Maybe Team Viewer Team must provide a reliable rollback version until the new version work.

    @MShoeb_Hasham any news from TV?

    Suddenly (within the last month) I have a few Raspberry Pi devices running Raspbian 10 that I cannot connect to. The connection seems to be successful, but within one second of connecting, the screen freezes. The connection does not terminate, the screen just freezes. TCP/UDP 5938 is open on both the remote and local sides.

    Lots of post like this since TV 15.6 on this forum. Nobody seems to care. Look like a SegFault of the Host app.
