    I just tried out Watchon to remote control my TV and fios cable box. The remote only works when I am 3 feet away. This sucks, coming from HTC one, that remote feature works flawlessly.

    Good suggestion, but no film on mine.

    Funny that mine works when I setup 6 feet away, but can't use it unless I am close to tv.

    Oh well, not really deal breaker for me, since I don't really use my HTC one as remote at home anyway, mostly at restaurants or bars.

    Can someone tell me where to go on my Note 3 to set the remote up and use it? I just got me phone yesterday, but I can't seem to find an icon for a remote.

    As always, thanks in advance for any help given.

    The default app is WatchOn. However, there are some other and perhaps better remote control programs in the Play. Just search one with Samsung S4 compatibility.

    Different people shouldn't compare their setups to others, because quite many factors starting from the controlled devices affect quite a lot. Also, some of those other programs allow you to adjust the signal. All that said.. It could be better.

    I sit about ten feet away from my tv and Roku and it works flawlessly on both of them. I use WatchON.
