About this app

**WI-FI/IR REMOTE+ for DIRECTV (Pro version)**

THE best DirecTV remote for Android with no BS or empty promises! Just pure awesomeness!

PRO VERSION extras:
Unlike competing apps, you get LOTS of cool stuff when you purchase the pro/paid version! For a complete Free vs. Pro comparison, see the link below:
http://goo.gl/rZue9V

Why choose my app over the competition?

* ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT ensures new features and bugs fixed.

* MORE FEATURES AND OPTIONS than all other competing apps combined. The only app of its kind that truly supports ALL DirecTV remote functions (including slow motion & SD/HD toggle).

* OUTSTANDING SUPPORT (in-app, website and email) from a person who cares and knows the technology involved.

* EXCLUSIVE (AND FREE) SHORTCUT ADD-ON allows you to create shortcuts to remote buttons, favorites, macros and the mini-guide right on your home screen. "Free" users can install and create shortcuts with it to see how it works but they will only function when the "Pro" version is installed.

* EXCLUSIVE (AND FREE) VOLUME PLUG-IN adds volume control! Important: Volume control requires an IR capable phone/tablet OR a supported network-controllable TV or AVR. For this reason, volume will NOT work for everyone. You can install and test the Volume Plugin BEFORE purchasing the "PRO" version in order to see if volume will work with your devices but only the "Pro" version can control volume from within the main remote app using the volume & mute buttons.

*****
If you like this app, please rate it! I'll continue to update and improve this app whether you rate it or not but great ratings make me feel all warm and fuzzy!

If you have problems or requests please contact me through email as it is very difficult to properly respond in the comments section.

Sadly, after 10 years of using this excellent app, I'm uninstalling it. The app works flawlessly and outlasted several physical DirecTV remotes, but alas it's time to leave DirecTV, as so many others have been doing. Thank you to the developer for creating a very useful and well made app, one I used almost daily.

This is one of the best apps that I have! Well worth a few dollars the braids to the pro version! Thank you for the app it's an excellent product! I can't get the volume to work even though I downloaded the add-on. One question I have is they're going to be support for wireless mini genies? That is what I have in my house and they do not turn off because they are not supported buy the app. If not that's okay because the rest of the app works flawlessly!

Volume can be tricky and it's unfortunately rare due to technical hurdles. I'm not familiar with the wireless genie clients, but the original wired clients drop off the network when powered off. You can technically turn them off, but then you can't turn them back on. Not sure why they made them that way! 😄 Happy holidays!

Used to work great, but it's now zoomed in to the screen so that only part of the remote is visible. Not only does that mean you can't see many of the buttons, but you can't get to settings or change set top boxes. Tried reinstalling and didn't help. Likely just uninstalling and moving on.

Sorry for the problem you've encountered. It sounds like you're using the custom "Memote" layout and something has changed with your phone's resolution or scale. Please send me an email (email@cognitial.com) and I can help you reset it.
