    Default Quick Remote Not Working

    Anyone having trouble using quick remote? I've tried to configure it for a Samsung TV, an LG TV, and Direct TV receivers, and none of them work. Am I missing something?

    Thanks

    I had trouble yesterday, u just need to get really close to the devices u want to control. Once u program the remote, it seems the range is a lot better.

    I programed in the Vizio and a Samsung. The Vizio I have has a very tiny remote sensor so you really have to aim your phone at it to hit it. There is also some lag in the response time between pressing the button on the phone and the TV responding but its not horrible. The Samsung TV I had to run through 5 different setup codes before it found one that worked. Other than that I haven't had any issues.

    This feels like a gimmick. Best range I get out of mine is about 4 feet.

    Same here, sitting in my bed 12ft or so from the TV and it doesn't work unless I get out of bed.

    Yes it's very poor, mine has the same 4ft range.

    However the great thing is I have t.v remotes, so its not something I have ever used (other than testing) or will use.

    Four feet!! That explains it. I tried in two rooms with a variety of components and none work. I sat from where I would normally sit figuring that there was no point in using the remote if it didn't work from there, and not a single one worked. As I already have universal remotes programed in those rooms it is no big deal. Plus my phone can already control the Roku boxes and a couple of LG Blue ray players from dedicated apps for these items.

    Mine works from about 15-20 feet away from our couch. Panasonic Viera (2009 model).

    I programmed it from up close as well.

    Retried yesterday and also found that it had to be very close to program but then works from a greater distance.

    The remote is hardly as good as the programmable remotes I used but does work. It is quick to program components like the TV and cable box but unfortunately doesn't have a database for other items like DVD and blu-ray players and I didn't want to spend the time to program myself. It is also necessary to point the phone directly at the tv, while with actual remotes this is generally not needed. I doubt I'll use this much, but it could come in handy at times to have a remote in my pocket in the care situation where the remote isn't nearby from where I'm sitting. I doubt anyone is buying their phone based upon the remote, but it's not bad for an extra feature thrown in.

    I wonder if it will work with any third party software which includes databases for more components.
