Is there an app that can control the Rogers Box from Smartphone/iPad?
I was at a friend's place who has Bell Five and she was showing me an app that she uses to control the channel functionality on her Bell box. Does something like this exist for Rogers?
Thank you for posting your query in the Community. Have you had a chance to check the previous post, MESSAGE 84?
I think you misunderstood what @Alex4161 is looking for. Apparently bell has an app that controls the channels on your TV. In other words, it acts much like another remote control device. Message 84 refers to the Home Edition app which allows you to view the guide and manage your PVR. From what I can see, rogers does not have what @Alex4161 is looking for. However, it does sound like a great idea. Also a great idea would be for rogers to add the "Manage PVR' functionality back the new Anyplace TV page for computers or laptops. Any timeline on when this will be complete? Based on past experience with rogers, "soon" could mean anytime from 1 week to 6 months or more. Very frustrating and not acceptable.
If you take the time to click on the second link in post 84 there are a list of FAQs. This was in reply to @Alex4161's previous question in post 83.
If you click on the first FAQ "What is the AnyPlace App?" it indicates that:
Our free Anyplace TV Home Edition app lets you control your TV and PVR remotely from your smartphone or tablet. And while the app also lets you watch TV, we recommend that you use our updated Anyplace TV for access to even more channels.
I just tested it on my iPad and it does indeed function as a remote control of my PVR. I can do anything on my iPad like change channels, etc. The remote control icon is at the bottom right of my iPad screen. I'm not sure where it is on phones... You may need to scroll to access all the various functions.
Personally, I prefer to use the Rogers remote control with its tactile feedback and no need to scroll.... I use the app (and AnyPlace Web) mostly to programme my PVRs and to check scheduled recordings.
I suggest you download the app and try it if you're interested in its functionality.
