Love this app!!! This app is great; since my fiancée goes to bed with the remote on her side of the bed, I don't have to worry about not being able to change channels while she's sleeping. I had to have the DirecTV Cinema Connection Kit (CCK) sent to me, but they sent it to me at no charge. All I did was set it up, connect it to my existing wireless network, and then got the app. The only thing that sucks about this app is that you need to have internet connectivity in order to control the DirecTV receiver.
lazy woman's dream Whenever I can't find my remote (aka I put it down and don't remember where), I skip straight to this remote app! It is perfect for when I just don't feel like moving to find the physical remote. It is exactly the same as the regular remote except as some have mentioned the volume. But by that point the volume is set so I'm happy even without that.
Doesnt work So me and my grandma have directv and her remote doesnt work so i downloaded this app to make it easier for jer to controll her tv. It worked for like a couple of weeks then it completely broke. I suggest tht u dont waste your time with this app.
Nothing works if you need an IR remote My Direct Tv is not connected to my network, so I need an IR remote. This one claimed to work, but it doesn't. I tried ALL of the remotes from this developer trying to find one that works for someone whose DTV isn't connected to the internet and none if them work. So, this is a loser for my needs.
I've had useful and I've had fun apps. This app is both. And it's made better with the volume control. Works in the bedroom and the living room. As a matter of fact, I can control either set from either room. Can't wait to turn the power off when I'm in bed and have guest being loud in the living room. I'll just claim that "something must be wrong".
