DirecTV Remote Pro

Available in :
Control your DirecTV receiver with the best looking DirecTV Remote for Android!

If you like this app, please rate it!  If you have concerns or requests, please contact me!  Thank you for your support!

This app requires DirecTV HD receivers and DVRs that are connected to your home network.  Supported models are H21, H22, H23 and H24 HD receivers and HR20, HR21, HR22, HR23 and HR24 HD DVRs.  R22s may work as well.

More detailed information can be found in the description for the free version.  IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU FIRST INSTALL THE FREE VERSION IN ORDER TO ENSURE THAT YOUR SYSTEM IS COMPATIBLE WITH THIS APP.  If your DirecTV system is NETWORKED and the receivers have been given a name and setup to allow external access, this app WILL work.  To try the free version, press "View more applications" in the last section below.

If you have problems getting this app to work, you'll find a button in the Options/Help screen in the app which takes you to my website with details on troubleshooting connection issues.

If you have requests or want to report issues, please email me using the link at the bottom of this app description.  It is very difficult to properly respond in the Comments section.

Key features of the DirecTV Remote:

* All-original button graphics look great on your mobile device!  Inspired by the DirecTV backlit remote.

* THREE remote styles to choose from:  Compact, mid-size and scrolling.  Choose which one you like best!  (Press Menu to choose a style.)

* The first (and only) Android DirecTV remote app to support the Slow Motion remote command!

* Create a Favorite Channels list.

* See what channel the selected receiver is tuned to and find out what is on.

* Reboot your receiver with a couple button presses (handy for when it starts to get laggy, as they unfortunately tend to do).

* Basic help is built into the app, with links to a website where you can find a FAQ list to help with issues.

* Haptic Feedback strength can be adjusted to suit your taste or turned off all together.

* The first and only Android DirecTV remote app to support macros (see below)!

* Easily enable and disable Closed Captioning with one button press!  (Built-in macros)

* Full custom macro support.  Create and use your own macros!

* Search Assistant allows you to enter search queries using your phone then sends them to the receiver.

* Easily launch the DirecTV DVR Scheduler app from the menu.

* Rearrange, rename & delete receivers, favorites & macros in the List Organizer (Menu > More > Organize Lists).

* See more about the current show, movie or song from IMDb, Google, Amazon and AllMusic ('On Now' > More).

* Optionally show a status bar notification icon for quick access to the remote.

* Toggle between SD & HD resolutions on the new DirecTV HD GUI (Menu > More).

* Option to lock app orientation to portrait or landscape.

Please note that the reliability of the "Slow Motion" command and macros strongly depend on the responsiveness of your DirecTV receiver.  You can adjust macro delays in the Options/Help screen (pro version only as custom macros are not available in the free version).

The default settings should work well for most people but if you have problems with macro reliability, try increasing the delays in 250 ms increments.

If "Slow Motion" and/or macros are still consistently failing to work correctly, please reboot your DirecTV receiver as they tend to get laggy over time.

Best Directv remote avail I just wish the macros window would stay open after clicking a macro, as all my macros use the EXIT button as the last function to get rid of directv's idiot black bar at the bottom whenever a single button is clicked. I wonder if tv volume control will be available in the future, that would be sweet.

Great app

Update allows LABELING of colored buttons Working perfectly and very fast on my CDMA Galaxy Nexus. Also, the Jan. 27 update added a very useful undocumented least it is useful to those who, like me, are COLOR BLIND. You can enable labels for the colored buttons of the remote. First, completely exit the app. -- Menu>More>Exit App. Then edit the "DirecTVRemote.ini" file in the "DirecTV_Remote" folder on your SD card (you may wish to create a backup first). Locate the line "RGYBLabels": 0, and change the 0 to a 1. Save the changes and restart the app. You won' t have to guess between the Red and Green buttons any more!

Very very Good but... It keeps forgetting the IP address. Scanner not working properly. I manually input the DVRs ip address and ditched OUR remote because now I control our DVR while watching movies in the dark. Very useful but for some reason after a few uses I find myself reentering the IP address. Its annoying. Please fix. I Just received the upgrade from DTV for our DVRs so UI is differe so some features don't work properly like CC button and top search button. Not sure if it worked before the upgrade.Just bought app today.
