    LG has the best infrared remote control app by far. I've used Samsung's and HTC's as well and it's just so much easier to setup and go. I don't know why LG doesn't get more credit for it, but I guess using the remote control on your phone isn't that big of a deal to a lot of people

    Took me about three minutes to set up 3 devices. A+ job on LG part. Really nifty to have.

    The IR blaster is pretty nifty. I have a cheap, off brand LCD TV, and I was amazed it is on the support list and works with the G3! I didn't buy the phone for that feature but definitely nice to have. Off topic - VLC Remote is also incredibly useful.

    True! Any idea how the range compares to other IR blasters - Samsung, etc?

    Anyone have success getting it to work with the Comcast X1 box? It's kind of laggy.

    I don't have any specifics but I've seen a Samsung IR blaster reach a ceiling mounted TV several meters away...

    The range isn't great, but the best function for it is to **** my wife off when she's watching rubbish TV as she has no idea what is happening to the telly.

    Yes, I got it to work on an X1 box. The X1 box is 'laggy' with the normal remote. Actually, it's a terrible experience, I have to reboot mine every week at least.

    Back on topic, set up was easy and it works on everything I own. Range leaves something to be desired, which almost ruins the point of it.

    I haven't been able to get the IR remote to work reliably, but Xfinity has an X1 remote app that works pretty well.

    I really like the learning feature...you can set up a totally custom remote ala Touchsquid.
    Had to set one up for an old Teac stereo....genius.

    I did notice that they no longer have an option for a dvd player, which kind of sucks. On the Optimus G pro and G2 the option was there.

    xbox 360 slim, vizio sound bar, LG TV (works great for some reason!). I was at the hospital the other day getting an x-ray for the kid's broken arm. Loud annoying news shows were on, until i turned it off.

    But you can create a DVD remote using your remote. It's cool. I did it with my Blu-ray player and it's easy. You choose the buttons you want then it will walk you through the steps of programming. basically it will highlight a button and you press that button on your remote and point it at the end of your phone and that programs the button on your phone.
