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.
Nothing special about this one, lots remote controls like it. But what if you want to use it in a different room? You can't see where the mouse is going. For that I use TeamViewer on my phone. It works very well. I can connect and see my pc from any room and play to any room. To me, problem solved. Hope my idea helps. Happy Hunting...
Does not work at all I have Power DVD Ultra 16 installed and the remote feature activated. Both my phone and PC are on the same network. This app fails to find the PC repeatedly. It's a broken feature.
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?
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.
