How To Enable
This app wasn't working for me. I'm running PowerDVD 12 Ultra, Windows 7 x64. So, what I did was update my PowerDVD, which updating alone wasn't enough. Turns out I, or some other program set to optimize my start up, disabled the program associated with this app. To enable, click the start button, click to put your cursor in the box that says "Start Search", then type "msconfig", there will be an icon above the search box that says "msconfig" to the right of it, click it, user account control will pop up, click continue, click on the startup tab, it's the fourth tab to the right, scroll down until you find "RemoteControl10" under the startup item list, click to put a check in the box to the left of it. Just to be safe all the PowerDVD startup items should be enabled. So, once you've got that checked click "Apply" at the bottom of that window then click "OK". Then restart your computer. Open PowerDVD and start this app. It may take a minute for your computer to show up on the list, then tap it and follow the instructions. As long as PowerDVD is open you should be able to use this app as a remote control, for anything. It's freakin sweet. I hope this helps some of you.
It works more or less as advertised, which is why I give it two stars instead of just one.
However, it has almost no actual functions. It can play, pause, stop, fast-forward and -reverse, and skip scenes. And that's about it. A decent remote would have at least twice that many functions, including the ability to open disc menus, switch subtitles and audio tracks, and much more.
Also, just to add insult to injury, the GUI is ugly as sin. It is advertised to work on the iPad, but on my iPad, the low-resolution iPhone graphics are either too small to see and use well, or are badly stretched out and pixilated.
You're better off forgetting this joke of an app and control the software directly with your PC's mouse and keyboard. You'll have all the features this remote app lacks, and you won't have to tolerate the ugly GUI.
Dose not work
It use to work on the previous version of the program on my computer but when I downloaded the update to my computer now I can't use my cell phone app as a remote because it says it cannot find a server even though my phone is connected to my router via wifi and yes it is working and my computer is also connected to the router as well. Please get this app working again with the new update for the actual program that you made everyone update to.
