I'm using the latest version of the Companion app (1.6.1), and Calibre (0.8.65) and testing it on a Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus.
The place to start is with a calibre debug log (see FAQ item 3 on the first post of this thread). That will tell you if the smartapp driver is actually listening on the network, and if so on what port. It will also tell you if calibre "sees" a connection request, and if so what happens to it. Post the results, including the log, and we will go from there.
Question: after setting the fixed IP address & port, you said that the connection progress spinner appears and goes away, and "and nothing happens". I am assuming that means that "disconnect" does not appear in the action bar. Right?
BTW: the uninstall/reinstall will have erased CC's database. Once we get the connection working, you will need to transfer the books again.
