About this app

With this app "Remote Control for Sony TV" you can use your smartphone to control your Sony TV.
You can choose between network (WiFi / WiFi Direct / LAN) IP control or infrared (IR) control.

Infrared (IR) control
Works on phones and tablets with built-in IR blaster (infrared port) such as Samsung Galaxy S series until S6, HTC ONE, LG G3/G4/G5, Xiaomi Mi / Redmi / Note, Huawei Mate / Honor and many more.
No setup required. No WiFi required. It's ready to use (no need for pairing with the TV).
- Tested on Samsung Galaxy series (S4 / S5 / S6 and Note phones and tablets excluding Galaxy S7 & S8 which do not have IR hardware) running on original Android 4.4+ firmware (not CM/LineageOS).
- Also works on some older Samsung devices running on Android 4.1 - 4.2.2
- 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).

Network IP control (WiFi / WiFi Direct / LAN).
- Make sure the Sony TV that you want to use is turned [On].
- Make sure your mobile device and TV are connected to the same local/home network.
- When registering/pairing a Bravia TV, make sure that "Remote Device" / "Renderer" in the settings of TV is set to [On].
- If you have refused the registering/pairing confirmation message on your TV, then you can change your selection later in TV's settings (usually it's located at HOME / Settings -> Network -> Home Network Setup -> Remote Device -> Remote Device List).

- If the TV was not found, then it is also possible to enter the TV's IP address manually. To find out you TV IP address go to TV [ Settings ] / [ Network ].

The first remote app we installed(not this company), it was very frustrating to use! Every other click of the buttons you had to watch an ad, over and over again. I explained to my son what happened and what we didnt want from another app. He had my phone for like 1min and handed it right back to me. I'm very satisfied with its features and its different options. It also looks exactly like our org remote! Thank you all! -A

The remote works as advertised and is easy to connect. However, if you use this app as a television remote on a touchscreen device, services of HULU(or, I assume, any app with the same action requirement) you will realize that there is no way to access the details or select an episode in the "Keep Watching" list because the screen will not register a button held down. This is a fairly big problem for me and makes menu navigation unnecessarily tedious.

This is an excellent app. It works extremely well, and is so much lighter than the official bloated Sony app! Thank you! However, I did discover one odd behavior using the app with my Sony XBR-65X800G. When the TV is off (standby), pressing the power button on the app connected to the TV via WiFi won't turn on the TV. Remote Start IS enabled in the TV's network settings. Possibly even odder is that pressing the RETURN button on the app connected via WiFi WILL turn on the TV. So, there's a work-around to the problem, but hopefully the issue can be fixed in a future update. Anyway, again, great app, and THANK YOU!
