    I would like to especially thank the test team. This First Look is all from material from them... because I don't have an iPad I relied on them for critical information. And of course, a thanks to my friend Doug Brott for all his help here too!

    Any word if they'll bring some of the reciever control functionality to the iPhone/iPod touch app?

    Very nice guys.

    Question: If you have multiple DVR's in the same room, will the app (as a remote) automatically know which code set each DVR uses or do you have to set that up somehow on the Ipad?

    Since it is being done over your WIFI connection the remote codes don't come into play.

    Just DL'ed it and it is unbelievable! Have to be up early, but I squeezed in a few minutes before bedtime to give it a test run. Well done, indeed!

    Will they ever (or do they now) have anything like this for laptops? I have my laptop on my coffee table and something like this for it would be nice. Some of us can't afford Ipads yet.

    You could always download the iPad emulator from Apple.

    It couldn't find any of my receivers even after manually entering the ip address. Basically this thing doesn't work. Piece of junk APP

    Now it crashes. Looks like they released it too early as it doesn't work when it's up and crashes when you try to make it work. Major update is needed

    Make sure your iPad is connected via WiFi. It won't work via 3G even if you are @ home.

    Very good first look. If I ever get an iPad, this is one I will want.
