This app is for a product that is no longer in production, but will remain available for existing product owners.
The Seagate® TV Remote app allows you to control your GoFlex™ TV/FreeAgent® Theater+™ HD media player from anywhere in the home with an iPhone® or iPod® Touch via Wi-Fi. Since the app uses your Wi-Fi network, there is no need to point the iOS device at the HD media player or worry about being too far away to control the HD media player.
• Control your GoFlex™ TV/FreeAgent® Theater+™ HD media player with your iPhone® or iPod® Touch everywhere in your home via Wi-Fi
• Supports all the buttons and functions as the standard IR remote (except powering on the HD media player)
• Send photos from your iOS device to the drive inserted into the HD media player and instantly display in full resolution on the TV.
• Navigate files stored on the drive inserted into the HD media player and begin playing files with a single click
• Use your iOS device’s built-in keyboard to enter text when searching or using Internet services such as YouTube®
Note: In order to use the Seagate® TV Remote app with your GoFlex™ TV/FreeAgent® Theater+™ HD media player, you will first need to install the latest firmware update for your HD media player. If your HD media player is connected to the Internet via Ethernet cable or Optional Wi-Fi dongle, you will be notified about the firmware update automatically. Optionally, you can manually download the firmware update by visiting www.seagate.com and navigating to the download page for your device.

Works for me
I tried this app a few years ago with an iPhone 3G and had no luck. I tried it again with my 6 plus and it works perfectly. I'm not sure but it sounded like people were trying to control their tv with this remote. That's not its primary function. It is a remote for the seagate go flex media player. If you have your go flex and your mobile device connected to your network you should not have any problems. Anyone trying to use this app to control an electronic device that receives an ir signal for control is going to be disappointed. It was not designed to do that and by the way your iPhone can't emit an ir signal.
The app title is misleading. It does not work like a regular remote control should, if it even work! Some reviews mention that it is developed for a specific hardware and works only if the phone is connected to the same network where that hardware has been installed. At least the name of this app has to be changed to reflect that it is a network remote for x hardware. Otherwise it is unethical to gain such popularity through the so many downloads of this app when the majority of these downloads are useless and waste of time.
IT'S ABOUT TIME!!
I've been waiting for this to come out!
It works great, better than the original. If you have the media player, this is a must!
