    Is there any way of using my droid as a TV remote?? Im sorry if there is allready a thread out there on it but im in a rush. Even though I have my remote It would be cool to use my Droid as a remote just to be a show off to my friend who has the Iphone??

    No IR on the Droid so in essence no... Shelooga's comment isn't totally off though... FIOS customers can download an app to control the DVR not sure about normal channel changing and volume though... I wont be getting FIOS for a couple months

    theoretically it's possible, but would require a newer "internet connected" television that will accept commands via the connection because as stated the droid has no IR.
    Haven't seen it yet though.

    There's a TiVo App that works great. Of course you gotta have a TiVo box but overall its great.

    ya but the tivo is internet connected, a television would have to adopt something similar.

    PocketBlu is a App that controls Pocket Blu enabled Blu-Ray movies. The Droid and the PS3 must be on the same WiFi connections for it to work. It's a cool app.

    Would actually like this as well. I am pretty close to buying a ITouch just to have this, I was really hoping that this would be available for Android.

    I've been using FIOS Mobile Remote. Controls all the functions of my HD box (channels,dvr controls). It works great but only works the HD box and nothing else.

    Forgot to mention that you can "flick" pictures from your phone photo gallery and display it on your TV. It is fun to play with but I don't think I will use it a ton.

    I've only tried it on a few of the Blu-Ray discs I've gotten through Netflix, but apparently none of them were "PocketBlu enabled" (or it's not working for me). I searched around a bit and it doesn't look like too many have this yet.
