This app is a FREE PLUGIN for DirecTV Remote+ Pro from Cognitial Mobile. You can try this plugin with only the free DirecTV Remote+ installed to see if it will work for you. When Pro is installed, volume and mute can be controlled from within the main DirecTV Remote+ Pro app!

You MUST have either DirecTV Remote+ Free or Pro installed to open this app. See those apps for supported models and be sure to get the other app installed and working before attempting to use this app.

MOST people will be unable to control volume with ANY app. That is just the way it is. See website for a detailed explanation. Essentially you either need a network-controllable television, a network-to-IR device, or a phone/tablet capable of emitting IR signals. Unfortunately all of these are somewhat rare. I'm the only DirecTV Remote developer who has even attempted volume control and the reason is simple: It's much easier said than done!

For more info and help on configuring this plugin, see the FAQ at

* Global Cache iTach Net-to-IR device
* Any IR device connected through HomeSeer
* Built-in IR on HTC One devices (supports IR learning)
* Built-in IR on select Samsung Galaxy devices
* Built-in IR on select LG devices
* Built-in IR on select Sony XPeria devices

* Panasonic Viera televisions (2011+)
* Philips televisions (2011+)
* Samsung televisions (C series +)
* Sharp Aquos televisions
* Denon or Marantz AVRs (newer models)
* Onkyo AVRs
* Yamaha AVRs (newer models)
* TV brands/models that support a standard protocol using UPnP

* More will come eventually. Send me an email to add yours to the list... but ONLY if it can be controlled over a network. There is no way I can guarantee that support will ever be added for your brand but I will try.

If you find this app useful please rate & review it. Normally I wouldn't say that the more ratings I get the more I will update it, but with a project like this that is pretty much the case. Low interest means little incentive to improve on it.

1) Working installation of DirecTV Remote+ (Free or Pro)* from Cognitial Mobile. If you do not have either app installed, you cannot run this app at all!

2) An SD card (removable or non-removable) must be installed so that this plugin can retrieve your DirecTV Remote app settings.

3) A supported device as listed above.

* This plugin app will still allow you create and test volume profiles even if only the free version is installed but please note that they only function from the PRO version of the DirecTV Remote+ app.

AGAIN: MOST people will not be able to control volume from any app due to technological limitations. This is not my fault and there is nothing I can do about it. People who can use an app to control volume probably already know this. If you are not sure, then you probably cannot.

Recently changed in this version

* Fixed: All UPnP-related control methods had a typo in the commands related to volume up/down & mute toggle resulting in it working on some devices but not working on others. (Thanks Mark!)

* Galaxy IR/KitKat: Plugin will now automatically change control method from Samsung Galaxy IR to Android IR API as necessary on Galaxy IR devices that have since updated to KitKat or newer.

* HTC IR: Improved the Setup Wizard regarding the IR learning option available on HTC devices.

    Might be something I'm doing wrong but I seem to be losing my add-in setup. I'm going to try backing up and hopefully it will capture all functionality.

    Begs for ratings every time the plugin setting is accessed. 1 star for that. access the settings and a window pops up, Rate/Maybe Later/Open.. EVERY TIME. Maybe Later closes the popup but doesn't access settings, only open does that. What the hell is the point of Maybe Later? Stays at one star. Rating Beggar.

    Been using it with my Samsung smart TV for the last 18 months with no problems. Dev is constantly updating the app and is responsive if you have any issues or questions.

    The volume portion doesn't work so don't waste your money. And Yes, I checked compatibility prior to installing. I have Direct Tv, Samsung TV, Samsung Galaxy S3&S4 phones and tablet. I just want a refund aand to uninstall the program. I installed WATCHON and it's free and the volume and everything else works just perfectly.
