    Using a Samsung tablet, this was working in 5 minutes. The response is very quick and key repeat works well for scrolling lists of shows. I wish I had found it before I purchased an infred remote.

    Saved me when my remote had batteries leak in it. Not as good as a well configured IR remote (especially my Logitech which controls multiple devices in the living room) but great as a backup and stop gap. Very easy to configure. Except WOL isn't working for me... Tested WOL on front-end from laptop ok...

    Haven't used it for long, but was impressed by how easy it was to get working. From download to controlling my combined fe/be took less than five minutes.

    It's great , although recently it's started taking a long time to load sometimes - frustrating if you just want to hit pause quickly! But overall it's a good app. Running on a HTC One

    To get this to work on Fedora, use ifconfig -a to get your ip & mac address, and use system-config-firewall to add an exception for TCP port 6546, and turn on network remote in frontend settings general.

    This app does a great job of controlling MythTV. It was difficult to configure. Did not find a lot of help online. Final Solution found through trial and error. Had to change IP address in myth TV back and to actual IP of the computer.
