What are the requirements for the DirecTV Remote+ apps?

2014-02-04 19:58
IR control requirements:

  • If you do not have any networked DirecTV receivers but you do have a Samsung, HTC or LG phone or tablet with built-in IR, you can still control all of your receivers in the app.  Note though that some features (such as the Mini-Guide and On Now information) require networked receivers in order to work correctly and as intended.


Network control requirements:

  • DirecTV receivers and/or DVRs connected to your home network and configured to allow external access.  Be sure to give them a name as well, such as "LIVING ROOM".  Supported models are H21, H22, H23 and H24 HD receivers and HR20, HR21, HR22, HR23 and HR24 HD DVRs.  HR34/HR44 (Genie) and C31/C41 (client) receivers are supported!  R22s may work as well.
  • An Android phone or tablet connected to your home network via WiFi.
    Alternatively (or in addition) you can control one single receiver over 3G/4G, etc.  Genie owners can control the Genie and all clients over 3G/4G!  Read More
