My remote died after having the service 1 year. It found my device and worked immediately. It does have a bit of a delay when you push a button. I can’t figure out how to turn the box off or change the volume which has been annoying because my direct tv box is always on now and never shuts off. I can’t find a button on the box to manually shut it off either. Other than that...at least I can watch the tv now. And I will get exercise getting up to manually change the volume :)
I can control my tv with my phone and very good I like this direct tv app better than the other one the one didn’t have the numbers or lets on it it connected right up I’m amazed by this app I highly recommend this app This remote control works and it’s very accurate I love this app so much and it’s hands free so you don’t have to touch the other remote control laying down the stand This remote control is good when you’re sick with Covid and just don’t feel like touching the hand remote control laying on the stand you can control your tv from your hands
I do like this app, asking t does what it is supposed to do. However, I have 4 receivers (DirecTV) in my house, and although the app finds three of the four, I can only control one of the receivers. I don’t know if this is because my other three are ‘genie’ receivers or what. The app finds them all, but it’s frustrating that I can not control all of my receivers. Rate 3 stars for that and 5 stars for functionality, user interface and ease of use. Average four stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
I downloaded this app because I’m always losing the remote. I did not have high expectations because I have downloaded other apps in the past that do not work but this app automatically detected my cable box & connected right away.
Top 1/3 of the screen is wasted on a huge status bar that reads Not Authorized. Bottom 2/3's did work as the remote, which is confusing to why the top 1/3 reads not auth'd? Pros- once the app was installed all three receivers appeared (all though...not auth'd) with no log-in needed. I liked that, but I did spend 5 mins looking for a settings or log in menu to clear the Not Auth... clearly I was unsuccessful.
I'm rating this app according to does it do what I downloaded it for
We have DirecTV. DirecTV has an app, and it's terrible. The "remote control" feature is buried, and once you get to it, it takes too long to connect. Mostly when I need the remote on my phone, I'm upstairs and just need to stop what's playing. This app is only a remote, and it connects immediately. I've read the other reviews. I have my critiques for the app. But I didn't download this app to be a primary app that I'm going to live in. It does its thing, for me.
This app will open up to control all receivers on the network. Just pick one of the ones named during initial installation and control it. Swipe left/right to switch between control screens. I can control my receiver and DirecTV receiver with my iPhone.
It works fine and then it says I need to change my DirecTV setting to use a “foreign” remote. Fine...I do that and it works for a month. No issues and it’s great. Yesterday, my box does not exist. Can’t be found and this app says make sure you are connected to the same internet. WE ALWAYS HAVE BEEN!! What the heck is wrong here?
Just as another reviewer said, it says “Not Authorized” under the name of my DirecTV receiver, but the button functionality still works, and that message wastes 1/3 of the screen. Odd, but works like a charm otherwise. Thank you for making this useful app free too! :)
Wow my kids keep loosing the remote and this app completely saved us. Only this I can’t figure out how to change the color! Very small and I’m not sure if it’s something I’m able to do.. All together a good app.. Big thanks to maker!
Is this app being maintained? It seems there haven’t been any updates to keep up with iPadOS. It was working when I first installed it a few years ago (before the OS became iPadOS). After a few updates to the OS it no longer finds my receivers. I’ve gone so far as to delete the app and reinstall to no avail. The app still works fine on my iPhone 7.
It did find 2 of my receivers (hint, make sure your iPad is on the same house network, 2.4 vs. 5G). But it says my receiver doesn’t accept external devices (I checked, it does). And once I picked a receiver, I couldn’t redo the selection - had to uninstalled and reinstall to even be able to pick which one. And it still didn’t work. Buh-bye.
Worked fine until I got my new receiver. I’d been using it for a year with no problems. Now it says the new receiver is not authorized, despite following sparse instructions provided by the developer. It looks like I’m going to have to purchase a competitors app now.
