Says compatable with ALL my devices, ok I have it on my Asus phone and guess what it doesn't work. Just keeps saying "Unable to find PowerDVD" I am using PowerDVD version 16 ultra. I have both on the same network so why it can't find it I don't know. Bloody PCs you spend more time trying to fix them then get anything done.
Keeps disconnecting In addition to the below, the latest update has removed the Play/Pause buttons on the remote. It has fast forward and rewind functionality, but no pausing. Go figure. My Wi-fi signal is strong, but PowerDVD keeps dropping the connection to my phone app, saying "PowerDVD Device Disconnected" after only a few seconds. This makes the app literally unusable as a remote and thus pointless.
WiFi to LAN Doesn't Work = Useless Used to work. Now doesn't find program running on PC, so doesn't connect. Phone (with this app) connects to router via wifi. PC (with PowerDVD 13 Ultra) to same router via network cable (not via wifi). Only 1x LAN. Only 1x wifi network. Does app only work if PC connects via wifi now? If so, why remove previous functionality?
It's a decent remote WHEN IT WORKS. Whether or not it will see a LAN pc seems dependent on whether or not your phone decides that it wants to use 4G, airplane mode, WiFi settings, battery level, the phase of the moon, and the closing trend of the NASDAQ. I paid for your software, the least you could do is a teensy bit of reliability testing.
Good when it works. Some items are clunky but for the most part the app does a decent job and can be really smooth over wifi. But it crashes and disconnects incessantly. I have a very strong 2.4g and 5g network and full powerdvd16 ultra but it is still unreliable and this app crashes at moments where I want to pause/adjust the playback. Just use a bluetooth keyboard&mouse.
glitchy, but awesome I love having my phone as a remote! The problem with it is it seems to take about five taps to pause the movie or click the mouse for it to be effective. Also, the play/pause button is invisible, and there's no chapter-forward or chapter-back buttons. I do love the 8 seconds back and 30 seconds forward buttons.
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
