Description

Tired after a long day at work and want to relax on the couch while watching your favorite shows but can't find your TiVo® remote? Grab your phone, you've got it with you anyway. Problem solved!

Product Features

- Control your TiVo Series3™ (or greater) with your Android phone or tablet!
- Search for your favorite shows using the built in keyboard
- Simple design, easy to use

Suggestions and feedback are always welcome!

Quick Start

1) Connect to Wi-Fi
The device running RCX must be connected to the same network as the TiVo®. Typically this means the device must be connected to your home Wi-Fi network.

2) Enable "Network Remote Control"
Enable the "Network Remote Control" setting on the TiVo. Do this by navigating the TiVo menu to "Settings & Messages\Settings\Remote, Cable Card & Devices\Network Remote Control".

3) Add the TiVo network IP address to RCX
Your TiVo network address must be added to RCX. To find the TiVo network IP address navigate the TiVo menu to "Settings & Messages\Settings\Network & Phone". The TiVo network IP address should be displayed. Tap the "gear" icon in RCX, choose "Add TiVo" and enter the information requested. Alternatively you can choose "TiVo DVRs" and use the experimental "Scan" button.

Notes

- The RCX on-screen keyboard appears when the device is rotated to landscape mode. If the rotation is locked you won't see it.

- The keyboard only works in the standard TiVo menus (search screens). It may not work in other menus (YouTube® searches for example).

- The TiVo web site accessed from the RCX menu can be changed in the options. This is particularly useful if you live outside the US.

Can't get letters on qwerty to work just numbers. :( P.S. Needs a widget & more familiarity with buttons. ;) htc EVO 4G

Very Cool... This thing saves me from having to get the tivo slide remote. Makes searching for shows so much easier. For those who have trouble getting it to work, remember to set up the tivo to accept network remotes.&#

Slick. Just remote functionality with a handy keyboard. I'd love to see the same browse features that are in the official TiVo iPad app.
