Popcorn Hour Remote is a remote control application for the popular Popcorn Hour media boxes (also called PCH, Network Media Tank or NMT). This remote is derived from the PLoNK project and offers about the same features but with a lot of enhancements. This applications lets you take control of your PCH from your Android phone where you can browse your files or use the app as a remote controller. As a quick way of controlling your PCH we've also added a small widget which lets you Play, Pause and Fwd/Rew without opening the app.

NOTES:
* M3U playlist support has been sought after, but this is limited by LLink.
You can visit: http://www.lundman.net/wiki/index.php/Llink and ask Lundman to implement support for M3U in LLink, but we can't do anything about it as it seems.

    Hi, I have been using this remote app for my A110 for a whole year and after the recent string of updates I have had a bunch of problems. On my Nexus 7, the remote can`t power up the player with the button, I had to reinstall the app to get it working again. On my LG G2 it can`t power up the a110 at all, period. Other than that, the app still works but this is kind of annoying. On a side note,

    After the most recent update the remote stopped being able to start up my a110 on my Nexus 7 and it doesn't even start on my Desire HD on 2.3.5. Any chance of a fix?

    Tried it out when our remote seemed to have died. Now I powder to use the app - no need to aim. Have yet to try all the buttons but so far works flawlessly. Thanks!
