So I'm trying to reinstall the app and use it on the TV, VCR and cable, like I could before, but it keeps asking for a wifi connection. These are classic devices not smart devices. It's not the app's fault my phone doesn't have an infrared port. Still a great app; won't beg you for a 5-star rating. Works better with Galaxy phones for use on classic devices.

Hi S.Ayana, Did you check all the panels next to the power button? Each panel has lots of buttons. If you still don't find the missing buttons, please send all your device info to

Useless. I had this app for years and at one point it even used it on an old tube TV and DVD player. I was very impressed then. They've since updated it and it no longer functions for devices (a blu ray player I have and a non-smart Visio) I used to have saved on it. Updates ruined an app that was once extremely useful. I don't need an app for my smart devices, I need an app for devices my smart things can't control. Very lame, guys.

Updated 4/2021 - got a new phone and downloaded this app. I can't find my DVD player, or smart speaker, and the tv volume isn't working. Very disappointed. The mandatory wifi connection is a disappointing development. I loved this app so much before I'll be checking back. OLD REVIEW: An app that is super easy and FAST to setup! I had my DVD, tv, and satellite setup and ready to go with full functionality within 7 minutes! I might actually spend money to buy the ad-free version.
