Very pleased! - I had trouble getting this app to work, but Tom Hohensee replied to my email and gave me intense step by step problem solving to get it working. He worked with me for several hours via email to troubleshoot my unique problems and in the end, the app works perfectly. I am very pleased with the app AND the seller. I would definitely purchase other apps from him.

Excellent App - This is an excellent app and works very well. It easily detected the 4 DTV boxes in my home. Changing channels is quick. I hope the author of this app writes one for a wifi-enabled blu ray player that is capable of app control I would buy that in a heartbeat.
