AT&T Uverse app on Android 11 - Receiver Discovery Failed

Set up enabled apps for U-verse TV

I've done the setup per the above instructions and I've set the "Connection Mode" to default so any device can connect.

I've also restarted the AT&T gateway and Uverse DVR, but I still get the error(Receiver Discovery Failed).

How can I debug this connection and validate the Uverse DVR is broadcasting it's name on my network so the Uverse App can find it?

I am using the Uverse app on my Samsung S10+ running Android 11.

I have validated the Uverse DVR is on my network and the only port open is 8080.

As far as I can tell, the remote control function is broken and has been so for some time.  Leave feedback on the Google play store.

There are endless complaints regarding the Android My U-verse app failing to connect to receivers on my network.  App version Build 0390.  

The latest version date is 2016!!!!!  PATHETIC!!!  I pay through the nose for this service, how can this simple function fail?  How can AT&T ignore the complaints FOR YEARS?!!!!

The remote function is fairly worthless.  It works intermittently and constantly requires repairing.  

You can set dvr recordings via app (if it's working) without connecting remote control function.
