PS3 Remote Control App
Is there an app that will pair my Evo with the PS3 (either over my network or via BlueTooth so I can use it as a remote?
I am able to do this with my FiOS DVR. Reason I want to for my PS3 is because it doesn't work with IR remotes (thus it doesn't work with my Harmony remote). I bought a IR dongle (the Nyko Bluwave) but it doesn't support the "PS" button (necessary to back out of the new Netflix app), nor does it allow me to turn on the system with my remote.
So I was thinking maybe I could use my phone, since it has BlueTooth. Alternatively I'll be stuck paying $40 for the PS3 Adapter just to make my remote work (which I am not adverse to, really)

You have to be on your network for it to do anything though (won't work over 3G) so I also have the FiOS DVR Manager app to schedule recordings and clear space if I am on the road.

Been using this with my Harmony One for about a year, it is SOLID. IMO, easiest method. Guess it depends on your setup, I have multiple people using my entertainment system so having a remote app on my EVO wouldn't do them much good if I am not there to turn it on.

there is a ps3 remote application (freeware if you want to google it) that allows the PS3 remote to control the computer. It works via bluetooth. I use it for powerpoint presentations. So by that we should be able to get some android developer to make us an app to use the phone to connect via bluetooth to do the same on the PS3. I figure it must have already been done after 100K apps but maybe not.
