The App is temperamental and should be considered BETA. Although it is not expensive (is is compared to other apps) it is too buggy to charge this amount IMHO. Lets hope the price will go into software development. I think the issues could be related to a NextPVR software update on the computer with the TV tuner card, but then why break the PAID app when the free PC software updates? I would think making sure the PAID app is up to date and working would be a priority. </rant> When it works it is fine and does the job well. It is unfortunate that it is categorized as a game and does not work with some remote controls.

As I have multiple devices including an Ipad, I downloaded the apps for each. The Ipad app has a slicker interface but works pretty much the same as the Android app. I installed the backend on my Win10 machine without issues and forwarded the proper port within my router settings. Fired up the apps on both devices (though not at the same time) and each worked well on the home lan. I then used both devices away from my home network and each app worked great. The developer did a good job making his trifecta usable and easy. My thanks to him. I noticed others have complained of the cost but for the backend (free) and the $13.98 (2x $6.99) for the apps, I feel it was a steal deal.

Well worth supporting. I've used NextPVR on and off for two or three years. On because it's the best non-Windows Media Centre PVR for a Windows PC, and off because, well, it;s not Windows Media Centre. (I'm a big fan of WMC, it got everything right more than a decade ago.) NextPVR however is reliable and resource-light and with this app, Android devices can control and play TV content. It's not the shiniest of interfaces and in places it's a little, er, backwards, compared to WMC but it's still a fantastic achievement. I have high hopes for version 5. The (I think) sole developer is doing a great job. Support him and it's not beyond the realms of possibility that NPVR could be a really good replacement for WMC when MS finally pull the (guide) plug. It does one thing - being a PVR - well (Kodi take note.)
