What devices are currently supported in the Volume Plugin?


The devices listed on this page can be controlled from the main DirecTV Remote+ Pro app using the Volume plugin ("free" users can test the plugin directly to see if it will work for them but will be unable to send volume commands from within the main remote app).  More devices will be added in the future.  If you would like yours added to the list, send me an email, but ONLY if it can be controlled over a network. There is no way I can guarantee that support will ever be added for your brand but I will try.  Warning: If you ask for support to be added for your device be prepared to do some testing for me!  Laughing  Even if I am lucky enough to find out how to control that particular brand, I have no way of personally testing it to make sure my code is correct.

For more info on the technical problems with controlling volume from an Android device, please see <a href="/faq/index.php?action=artikel&cat=26&id=76&artlang=en" target="_blank">this FAQa>.

Note: A new an style="color: #008000;">Setup Wizardan> introduced in version 2.0 of the Volume Plugin helps make setting up the plugin a little easier.  The wizard cannot set ALL devices up yet but it will do quite a few of them. 

Below are the devices that the Volume plugin can control:
