It won't friggin connect Tried several times to connect my phone (Samsung galaxy s3). Manual settings won't work either. If you lose your remote for this player, you are screwed, because this POS app will not work. Why can't you use Bluetooth settings to connect? The actual remote is Bluetooth. It would make more sense.
Stupid What good is this remote ... I lost mine so now there is no way to turn on this stupid thing app sucks without a power button. you will get five stars if this is fixed
Find alternate streaming product Dogs ate my remote so I thought I was saved when I found this. However there is no way to power the device on without the actual remote. Also everytime you open the app it asks you to connect to your streamer... it doesn't remember. It used to reneger until my wife started using this app on her android device also. Maybe that has something to do with it. Either way... not impressed with this netgear product.
Works great!! I'm smart enough to know that my phone WiFi and the player have to be the same network, and I also lost my remote but by my sheer genius I realized that if I unplug my box and plug it back in than the power button issue is solved and I can use my great new phone app just fine. ... unless I feel like I'm better than everyone and having to get up and unplug/plug things in is just to mush hassle. .... get over it losers, this app is the poo.
Honestly, it has it good and bad traits Its easy to set up and easy to browse. I really like that i can use my smart phone as my keyboard now instead of pushing 3,000 buttons on my remote just to spell a title of a movie or search, bad is that it doesnt have ability to turn off and on..BUT most likely for those who lost their remote and really need this ability there is a universal smart remote app to power on and off ur tv so just put the apps next to eachother so u dont have to get up and down to turn everything off and on.
Can't turn on ur box For all of u who think the app is crappy and u lost or control or whatever and can't turn on discount the box from the power supply and connect back and the box will turn on.
