THE best DirecTV remote for Android with no BS or empty promises! Just pure awesomeness! Now with IR control!

Why choose my app over the competition?

* ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT ensures new features and bugs fixed.

* MORE FEATURES AND OPTIONS than all other competing apps combined. The only app of its kind that truly supports ALL DirecTV remote functions (including slow motion & SD/HD toggle).

* OUTSTANDING SUPPORT (in-app, website and email) from a person who cares and knows the technology involved.

* EXCLUSIVE (AND FREE) SHORTCUT ADD-ON allows you to create shortcuts to remote buttons, favorites, macros and the mini-guide right on your home screen. "Free" users can install and create shortcuts with it to see how it works but they will only function when the "Pro" version is installed.

* EXCLUSIVE (AND FREE) VOLUME PLUG-IN allows you to control volume on a limited number of devices right from the main remote app! More devices will be supported in the future. "Free" users can install and configure/test it to see if it will work with their devices but volume cannot be controlled from within the free main remote app. "Pro" users can control volume right from within the main remote app using the volume & mute buttons!

If you like this app, please rate it! I'll continue to update and improve this app whether you rate it or not but great ratings make me feel all warm and fuzzy!

If you have problems or requests please contact me through email as it is very difficult to properly respond in the comments section.

Using IR:
* DirecTV receivers can be controlled using IR on select Samsung, HTC and LG devices that have built-in IR blasters (Mini-Guide requires networked receivers)

Using WiFi/Network:
* This app uses WiFi to control your DirecTV receivers!

* Automatic discovery of your DirecTV receivers with ability to add manually.

* DirecTV receivers must be networked (wired or wirelessly) and configured for EXTERNAL DEVICE ACCESS and given a UNIQUE NAME (this is not the default setting on the receivers)!

* Supported models (HD only): H21, H22, H23, H24, HR20, HR21, HR22, HR23 and HR24. Also supports HR34 /HR44 Genie and C31/C41 clients.

* For advanced users: One receiver can be controlled over 3G, etc. See Website FAQs for details.

    It really works!!!! The thing I love most about it is that I can change the living room tv channel from my room to trick my parents.

    The kids are always carrying the remote into another room and setting it down. No longer have to stress over that

    Its ugly as possible, but works flawlessly. Pleas re-design so it looks modern, if done I would give it 100 stars. Awesome app -thanks.
