What are the requirements for the DirecTV Remote+ apps?
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
