** IMPORTANT NOTE: MythControlled requires that a computer running MythTV version 0.25 or better be connected to the same WiFi network as your iPhone or iPod touch. The MythTV may be connected to the network with either a wired or wireless connection. Don't download this app if you don't have a working MythTV. Visit mythtv.org to download MythTV and view installation instructions. The developers of MythTV are not the developers of MythControlled. **
MythControlled is an advanced remote control and interface for MythTVs (homebrew DVRs), allowing you to control many aspects of your MythTV with your iPhone or iPod touch. You can also stream videos and recordings from your MythTV to watch them on your iPhone or iPod touch, while connected to the same WiFi network.
CONTROL UP TO FOUR MYTHTV FRONTENDS AND BACKENDS
The app can search for MythTVs on your network and connect to them automatically. For more advanced setups, you can manually connect to MythTVs as long as you know the frontend and backend local IPv4 addresses.
EASY TO USE
The remote control screen features large buttons that are easy to press without looking down. Some buttons, such as the directional arrows, feature repetition, such that you can hold them down and the action will be repeated until you let go.
The remote control screen is cleverly laid out for maximum features without clutter.
