Okay apparently base64Encode/Decode is my friend. I have this working now without encryption. I will re-enable encryption and see if that works.

I am not even using encryption now, just sending the encoded array data and a delimiter. When it decodes on the other end now, arrayDecode fails.

They is just something wrong with the data. Curiously, if I just send and receive plain text it works every time.
