The MacroSystem App allows quick and easy control of your DVC using an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
Want to zap or switch to mute? No problem, it's just a simple gesture.
Remember how annoying it was to enter text using a remote control? Those times are over. Now you just turn your iPhone through 90° to display a complete alphanumerical keyboard and enter your text directly.
With an iPad, you even have complete control over your DVC when you are out of its visibility range. The DVC display is shown on your iPad, so that you can program a TV recording you've forgotten when you've already left home or have only just realized it will be broadcast on the same day.
Of course, you can also use the alphanumerical keyboard, as well as the zap and mute gestures on your iPad.
Using WiFi will give you better and faster control than the infrared remote control delivered with your DVC. You no longer need to point the device in a particular direction or be close enough to the DVC in order to control it.
To use this App, your MacroSystem DVC will need to use the WarpStreamer option. The DVC should also be connected to a network, and your iPhone/iPad should have an active WiFi connection. For the best results your DVC and iPhone/iPad should both be within the same class C network. Where this is not the case, you will need to know your DVC's IP address and enter it into the MacroSystem App manually.
What's New in Version 2.0
UPnP Server Support
With RenderBooster in MP4 format converted films can now be directly watched online from your DVC.
