A significant amount of our time is spent on smart phones and it's quite convenient if we can use them to control other electronic devices in our house. Over the past few years, many companies have worked on bringing this functionality to their users (using phones to control home appliances). Today, most DTH operators offer mobile phone controlled television viewing to their subscribers. Videocon's d2h Smart Remote App is one such example that seamlessly connects DTH set top box (STB) to a smart phone to offer various functionalities.
d2h Smart Remote App can connect the STB with the smart phone either using Bluetooth or WI-Fi. You'll need Android 4.3 and above and if using Bluetooth (check your STB has Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivity), you have to purchase d2h Bluetooth dongle. After launching the app on your phone, click on the 'find d2h STB' tab and your STB number will be shown. Press connect and your mobile phone now can be used as a remote. You can easily perform basic functions such as browsing channels using logos, volume change, check program guide, etc. With Bluetooth connectivity, you can get mobile notifications on your TV so that any Facebook updates, messages, missed calls, etc. can be checked instantly.
Audio streaming is also a great feature where you can stream audio from your mobile to your STB or vice versa. Hence, once connected, you only need to plug in earphones on your phone and can watch TV without disturbing others around you. Media Casting (available on Wi-Fi enabled STBs only) is an exciting feature where you can watch videos from YouTube, Dailymotion, etc. that are playing on your mobile phone onto your big TV screen. You can download the d2h Smart Remote App for free from Google Play Store.
