Fairly good For remote records the app is terrific. The in built app reminders for shows seems to have stopped working since my phone went up to Android 7 (Nougat). I can set a reminder against a show but it never pops up.
Nice Guide This gives a nice guide layout effectively replicating what can be displayed locally on the box, but I was surprised to find that channels cannot be manually switched or controlled from the app in front of the TV itself. So basically this is just a remote recorder. Annoyingly channels are only identified by name & logo & not by all important channel numbers too. Works well on Google Pixel XL Nougat.
Far too basic, no way to set options. Yes, for browsing the guide and sending a request to record, it is a great idea that works well. BUT, there is no way to know if that will clash, and if it is rejected you don't know why. I can't jump to the channel by number so have to scroll the list for it. There is no way to cancel a request. ********* There is no way to show only free to air channels, making search ridiculous as you get results for all the repeat channels and future on the paid channels. I do NOT want Sky listings. Listing doesn't show what you have set to record so it isn't interactive in any usable way.
Good Remote Recorder Only just installed, but first impressions are: easy set up, nice interface, it's a remote recorder (as described) not a remote control and it'll be very handy for those 'forgot to record... ' moments.
Works well on Marshmallow & Nougat! No problem here with the two most recent iterations of Android, been using on Marshmallow (Nexus 5) for approx 1 year & have also used on Nougat ( Nexus 9) without issue!
YVM 5004 error Another update, and it STILL does not work on Marshmallow! Will NOT open. YVM 5004 error constantly. Sort it out please 😟
