    Default The tv remote control feature is awesome

    It controls my tv and dvr. I wish I could control multiple tv's though.

    well, sir, you are in luck today, because you can!

    you just have to go to settings, and click on "add room".... you will be able to control all your devices!
    i have mine set up to control 4 tv's, the dish stb's, and a bluray!!!

    it's awesome!

    I used to have a harmony remote
    Is there an app that would imitate the harmony with macros?

    It is when it works. I love that it can control more devices than my hTc One like my Blu-ray, HD DVD and Apple TV 3.

    I don't know, I can't turn off my Denon receiver and it takes several attempts to turn off/on or control my Samsung TV and Rogers Cable Box.

    hTc One is simpler but it works.

    I had enough and cleared it. I will see if Samsung releases an update.

    Works fine on my Samsug TV's and FiOS boxes. Have not tried to use it on my Denon since I only use that for movies. I also like the link feature for mirroring my phone on the TV screens. of course other Samsung phones could do this also but it is handy when needed.

    How did you get it to control the Bose? I have a Samsung surround sound system that I can't seem to figure out how to program.

    Is this feature available on the phone right out of the box or do I need to download an app?

    It's the little remote looking thing in the top right hand corner of the WatchOn app. Wish it could be a stand alone app, but other then that it works great when I use it.

    i want to like this program, so I've set it up and can turn on my tv and control my FIOS box. But I cannot find a way to add my AVR, Oppo BluRay player, Apple TV, etc. I've read others saying they have been able to do so, but I cannot find a way to add any additional devices. I have a Verizon S4 if it makes a difference.

    The TV remote is great but one issue I found is, there is no guide feature, I like to go to guide then scroll to find the channels I want to view. Can't seem to find that feature.

    I think if you click the menu in the upper left there it's a guide option

    When you set up the remote, make sure you select "set top box". You may have to do it over. It'll ask to set up TV first. It's kinda easy to miss
