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:

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.

Running custom ROM with Android Pie and the app works flawlessly just like all previous Android versions. This is the most awesome DirecTV related app I have tried and possibly the best app I have ever used. Save yourself some trouble and buy the PRO version right away. Fully compatible with all genie receiver and genie mini clients ON BOTH WIFI AND 3G/4G. The documentation says that you can only control one unit via 3g/4g but you can actually control all clients including minis. The developer responded immediately to a question I submitted. This is an ATF!.

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.
