Is there a way to use the Ignite App as a remote to change channels on the actual TV?
No, it doesn't do this, nor does it allow you to set recordings. It may at some future date as discussed earlier in this thread. Here's the App FAQ:
I try to watch on my Android phone or iPad,both apps seem to accept my credentials but give me the message “looks like you don’t have ignite tv yet”.can you watch on devices when someone is using the ignite box at home?
Good evening @Mooper40,
I hope you are enjoying your Ignite TV service so far! It sounds like you might be using a different MyRogers account than we associated with your Ignite TV account or it was never linked as it should have been.
I had the same problem. Logged into myrogers and used the chat function and they quickly fixed it for me. A problem that they could fix but I couldn’t. I love their chat. It’s real people
IgniteTV app says "you don't have ignite yet"; we have had ignitetv for 2 months.

Thank you for posting your concern in the Community. That error is definitely confusing; however, it's related to the association of Ignite TV account with your MyRogers profile.

Just to add my experience. Previously I used Rogers Cable and had a Slingbox which allowed me to access my Rogers channels and PVR from ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. When I inquired about Rogers Ignite TV, I specifically asked if I could access it from ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD and the Rogers employee said emphatically yes! Fine print or not, he lied directly to me about Rogers Ignite TV capabilites. So, foolishly believing him, I switched only to find out that, indeed, you can't access your Rogers Ignite TV from ANYWHERE. I read that it's some sort of publishing rights or contractual restrictions. I see the Bell is now offering their streaming access and they state in their TV commercials that you can access it ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, wonder how they are able to do so when Rogers is not.

Bell uses a different technology from Rogers for remote recording and for streaming. It appears that Rogers is currently unwilling to pay royalties for this technology. See similar discussion in the link below:
