Very poor app After receiving the module, I was excited to see if it worked. Managed to get my TV turning on and off. But the app is just useless. Only 6 icons available to perform an action, the rest you must pick from a list. Adding your own remotes is near impossible, I type in the exact path (file browser anyone?) and it tells me it can't find it. The only reason this is getting more than one star is because it powers on my TV, which is all I wanted it for. Just wish there were a better app available.
Works but lacks documentation for custom LIRC. Like others, I haven't been able to get any custom LIRC config files to work. I've succeeded in parsing a few (hint: clear the data through app management because the app doesn't delete the database correctly) but the app crashes on button press (likely the buttons weren't mapped correctly). The app badly needs a help forum where users can share info and tips; It's mostly useless without it. The hardware module supposedly works with Coversal with the Lirc plugin (also on market); But nothing I've tried has had any success with getting any signals sent from that app. Lastly, the download database WORKS, if you happen to have one of the ten obscure devices in it. This is a very promising program that still has a long way to go.
Terrible documentation, does not work Using the 2.0 hardware, I was unable to load a custom profile after wasting hours. Save yourself the trouble and money, and wait for an app which works.
I had high hopes. To say this app is a let down would be an understatement. I ordered the module. Ships from Bulgaria btw. Took forever to get here. I'm a smart guy and it took me a week to successfully parse a file for the remote I need. Did it work then? No! It crashes every time I send a command (remote button press). Turns out, it's not compatible with lollipop. The documentation does not explain how to import the remote file you need. I feel like I got taken advantage of. App last updated in Jan 2014.
Please add file browser dialog Really nice app, but having to manually TYPE the path to my codebase file is just ANNOYING!! Please add a file browser dialog! What would be best, if the app could crawl specified directory, search for all present codebases and add them to its DB.
Clunky and Scammy Two main problems: A) You have to manually type the path to the conf file you want to use. And B) They 'require' you purchase an IR dongle from them. Something you can create at home with a few spare parts, or buy online for 2$. Total ripoff.
+Minor GUI modifications.
+Added audio volume save state feature (automatic)
+Added remote selection save feature (automatic)
+Fixes for Irdroid v2.0 hardware (bluetooth version)
