Help! A300 without remotes! - Asterra - 07-22-2012 03:12 PM
Well, we went on vacation with two A300s and forgot to bring their (infrared) remotes. I have been desperately seeking options. A universal remote of some sort? I hope there is one that will work but Google thinks not. I looked into the MobileRC app for iPhones but it sounds like I would need to install something on the A300s themselves and I cannot even turn them on, let alone do anything complicated with them.
I can go to Best Buy (I think) or Wal-Mart. These places do not conveniently stock Popcorn Hour replacement remotes. I do not know what to do here.

Install this on your iphone:-
Other phone or tablet control apps:-
You'll need a PC netwokr and NMT Aps etc. with those though. Other CSI apps also require a network
You can use any Logitech remote and some other universal remotes. You'll need a PC to install the remote control codes for the A300.

At least one Philips universal remote (SRT9320) has popcorn controls built in that work; i don't know about others.

Go get a Logitech Harmony remote and program it online for your A300 it can do many devices from one remote so it's even useful when you get back home.
they sell them everywhere even at Wallmart, Target and what have ya...
Have a nice Holiday...
