Is it possible to use your PC as a remote control? Looking for something like the iPad application.

There's directions around here somewhere.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

What app works on a Windows PC? I know they have Directv2PC but that only allows you to watch recorded programs. Looking for something that would allow functionality like the iPad app.

"Oh ye thread of olde, arise from thy grave."

Is there anything better than this now?

There is an Android Emulator for PC from http://bluestacks.com/ that will let you run the Android based DVR remote controls but not all of them work and it adds a pretty thick extra layer of complexity.

Thanks.

Thanks to Google search, people can appear to be smarter than they really are.

Okay, thanks. I probably should have phrased my qurestion better.

I'm wondering if there is an app that will allow me to control my DVRs from a PC. Earlier in this thread there was mention of a web-based app that doesn't work with IE.

I was hoping there would be a more elegant solution by now. BlueStacks isn't it. ;)
