Only some buttons work. Great idea and much needed app.....just wished it worked better. Home (supposed to be menu I think) brings up odd choice for 3d or non 3d options......same with button meant for TV smart apps & even exit. So none of these work as they should. If I pull up the menu with my reg. Sharp remote, I can then navigate with the arrows & the OK button, also vol, ch & mute work as well as power. But app leaves so much out, is hard to be useful.....got to get the MENU button, Apps button, Exit, Rtn & Input working!
A Hopeful Start Connection: I tested this app using a Sharp LC - 70LE735U. User be advised I had to go into the internet setting. Here is how I did it. 1. Use your remote control to and go to menu and find your internet setup and find the IP control option (IP control needs to be enabled for this app to work) 2. Get your port number (mine was 10002) and your IP address from your internet settings 3. Use the IP address and port number you obtained in the step above and input into the app to connect to your devise (if you chose a user name and password in your tv enter it here - if you did not leave it blank. 4.The app will now connect to your tv now. Operations: In the first screen you can press down on the top to drop more options. The around in the bottom right changes input (A menu like options will be more useful since I had to change input one at a time). Under the DLNA files the up and down bottoms let you change your selection. The ok bottom seems to work too. When I press the 3D, EPG, END, and BACK bottom the same 3D setting screens opened up. The volume did not work but I changed channels by pressing P+ or P-. Slide your finger across the screen to see more menus.
App Crashes on Load App crashes on load and goes into a restart cycle for the app. Had to close all apps to kill this one. Secondly, why does this app require access to photos when all others are fine with simple access to your wifi to control your TV? I'm wondering if this app is targeting rooted devices and doing something behind the scenes... Maybe not, considering the author mentioned it was in beta and may have issues, but still not usual behavior for any app I've used to date.
Bug: Keeps restarting the app When I launch the app, I see a popup that tells me the app needs to restart. I couldn't even navigate away from the app, the popup kept blocking me. Had to hard reboot the phone to uninstall the app.
App just kept restarting on Note 4 Kind of like a pop up on a Web page, the app tried to start and a pop up said a reboot was required. Over and over. Had to reboot my phone to close the app, as the app kept popping up over other apps. Could not test on a TV.
Didn't Work Got the dreaded Application Restart loop. Had to shut down the phone to get out of the loop. Nexus 6 on lollipop. Might be a cool app, but I wouldn't know.
