Your iPhone and PVR need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Using the iPhone as a remote does not use the IR technology the regular remote does, so "sitting right in front of it" would make no difference.


I also recall others having problems with recent versions of the Remote App, and will see if I can find a reference tomorrow.

Only problem I'm having with the remote app on iPhone is that on the main Remote screen where you see the directional arrows, the whole thing is malfunctioning. All other buttons (On Demand, Settings, Menu, Guide, Power, etc) seem to work fine.
