Nice option. However it does not meet my requirements. I need a mother-in-law-friendly solution. She needs hardware buttons. One labeled POWER, and the typical VOL-/+ and CH-/+. She barely managed the Harmony.elvisimprsntr said:Get a redeye unit from thinkflood.com. iOS and android apps for control and has a rest API for integration.
I tried the Link, probably one year (or more) ago. The iPad version of their app was nice, but if I'm not wrong I think that their Android App was a very poor after-tough. The current rating in the Play Store is 2.5 stars. Anyway, thanks, but I need a traditional controller.Gearhead said:Been living with the Harmony Link for over a year an I absolutely love it. My wife and daughter have their own "remote" since we all have iPhones so there's no fussing about who took the remote. Integration for my Pioneer Elite Plasma, Integra Pre, DirectV DVR, and Blue-Ray took all of 15 minutes.
As you can expect, there is the delay cranking up the app but, I can live with a 5 second launch time. I'll sometimes switch back and forth with the DirectV remote (which is hard to beat anyway). Also, the wow factor of the iPad app with the integrated DirectV guide feature is off the chart.
