Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Telstra T-Box is a set-top box which plugs into a BigPond broadband internet connection and a television. It enables normal Free-to-Air TV and broadband TV to be delivered to the home television set.
Telstra has created an iPhone application which acts as a remote control for the T-Box. It is a free, fun, easy-to-use app that turns your iPhone into a remote control. So wherever you are in your house, you can control your T-Box.
Just like the T-Box remote control, the iPhone application can be used to change channels, control the volume, navigate menu items, etc. on your T-Box.
To use the application the iPhone will need to be on the same home network as the T-Box, the T-Box will need to be powered on and the iPhone application started. The application will then link with the T-Box and operates like the T-Box remote.
This product works through your home network. Telstra recommends always using a secure home network.

Great!! Very Useful!
Great app, my T-Box remote is broken so i just use this instead on my ipad, although i think it would be even better if you could create an actual ipad version with more advanced feautures, so i dont have to press the x2 button with poor quality, then i can also turn my ipad on its side and maybe it could show the T.V guide or something like that but anyway great app, good job thanks :)
Ok but has irritating flaws
I liked this in general, but it has flaws and I've needed to reset it a number of times. It also mutes the tbox if you put the phone down too quickly. One big issue is if you change modems (and hence wifi) it won't let you back in to the app anymore (so I can no longer use it) . And you still need the remote to start the tbox on occasion. Which kind of defeats the purpose of using the app. Oh the taking a while for the tbox app to start and losing the tbox it's been pared with is also frustrating too .
Great remote app for tbox
This app often easier to use than the remote. The ability to see all programs currently on and changing the channel is awesome. A slight issue I have is that to get to the guid to set a recording you must change remote view to the number keypad. It would be excellent if the guide was included on this app possibly an extension on the current channel page.
