About this app

With the app "TV (Samsung) Remote Control" you can use your smartphone to control your Samsung TV over the local network and/or with IR (if your android has infrared port).

You have 2 options:

★ Network IP control (WiFi / WiFi Direct / LAN).
Works with C, D, E, F, K and M (2016+) models, but not with H and F models.
- Make sure the TV that you want to use is turned [On]
- Make sure your mobile device and TV are connected to the same home network. If your router supports a privacy separator function, make sure it is disabled.
- It is also possible to enter the TV's IP address manually. To find you TV's IP address go to TV: [Menu] → [Settings] → [Network] → [Network Status].

If TV was found but after selecting the TV:
- If you have refused the confirmation message on your TV ("accept device") you need to change your selection by going to:
[Menu] → [General Settings] → [External Device Manager] → [Device Connection Manager] → [Device List] or with older TV models [Menu] → [Network] → [Expert Settings] → [Mobile Device Manager] or [Menu] → [Network] → [AllShare Settings].
- You can disable the TV's ("accept device") screen by going to eg. [Menu] → [Settings General] → [External Device Manager] → [Device Connection Manager] and changing [Access Notification] -> "First Time Only".
- If a PIN code is requested on your TV screen - sorry, but with this TV this app won't work :(

★ Infrared (IR) control
- This option works on phones and tablets with built-in IR blaster such as Samsung Galaxy S, HTC ONE, LG G3/G4/G5, Xiaomi Mi / Redmi / Note, Huawei Mate / Honor etc).
- Tested with Samsung TV F and M models, but probably works also with others Samsung Smart TV-s build 2005 and later (if it does, then let us now and give feedback).
- Please note that you must point your phone’s IR blaster directly at the TV. Usual working range is 4-10ft (1-3 meters, max ~5 meters).
- With some phones in power saving mode or with almost empty battery the IR blaster might not work or range is less then 5ft (2 meters).

The purpose is not to replace the original TV remote, but this app is handy in emergency situations (original remote is lost, empty batteries etc). It's ready to use (no need for pairing with the TV).

If this app doesn't work with your phone or TV then feel free to e-mail me (your exact TV and phone model). Then I can try to add support for your phone or/and TV model.

Works 100% better than the Samsung handheld, especially for big hands like mine. Also easy to see, as the handheld is not illuminated like the app. Only complaint is the "fit to screen" setting makes it too small and harder to use, but the "scrollbar" mode was easy to get used to. Response is seamless and instant, paired with Samsung TV flawlessly. Love it!

Works very well with my Samsung. No problems turning on or off. I would consider buying an add free version if it were available. It sucks having to wait for an add to finish just to pause or mute a show. Another cool feature would be the ability to customize the layout. I'd like to hide buttons I don't use and move the frequently used buttons to the top.

Worst remote app I've ever tried to use. I say tried, because I've gotten it to work maybe twice since we got our new TV. We keep the remote hidden due to having a toddler, but she largely ignores our phones. Every time I turn the TV off/on, it apparently changes its IP address, because why not! So I have to go to the app settings and try to find/pair with it, 99% of the time it just spins and spins never finding the TV. Poor design and implementation. I expect better from Samsung.

Hi, we are sorry for the issue you are facing but only You can fix it. App can't connect with the TV if IP is changed. Please set up your home WiFi router to use static IP addresses or if it's not possible then increase your DHCP IP lease time (24+ hours). How to do it - just google for "dhcp increase lease time".
