Rasp Pi What is Password to enter TV Options?

Hello all,

TV installed on my pi, but when I try to access the options, I am first asked for the Adminitstrator PW (no Problem) then it says "The options dialog is protected with a password..."  This is a new install. No passwords were created/entered other than the admin password during install.  So what is the password here to get into Options?

Thanks,
Tim

Re: Rasp Pi What is Password to enter TV Options?

In advanced options you activated "changes require administrative rights", which is why you have to enter the root password.

Most likely you also entered a password in "Options password", right below that option. If you don't remember, I'd assume you entered the root password there, too.

With root permissions you can also remove the line "OptionsPasswordAES" from /opt/teamviewer/config/global.conf. Before doing so, stop the daemon: teamviewer daemon stop (then start again).
