This application is designed to add new useful features to the Directv remote control. The ReRemote separates channel surfing from other remote control features and provides useful On-Screen information about the current channel and program without taking up space on your television screen!
It also has on-phone favorite list capabilities including the ability to watch/scan the list of channels. You can create up to 20 favorite lists and add channels to each of them with a simple click of a button. You can then start a scan of any list, get up and do some chores but still know what is available to watch on all your favorites without having to hit another button!
If you like the standard remote control, well we have that too. It functions just like the standard remote control. But since ReRemote uses your wifi network, you can change channels from anywhere that you have range.
Setting up the app is a breeze. There is a built-in receiver discovery button that will scan your local LAN and find any receivers. Devices can be manually added as well as needed. The app supports up to 5 different receivers. Each receiver must support direct access commands.
More features are on the way, and suggestions are always welcome.
Please note that the application uses your local WiFi network to communicate with the receiver. This feature must be enabled in the receiver setup. The app provides additional instructions.
