Controling TV over IP


Novice Member
Hi, I'm new to the forum :hiya:

I need some much needed help in trying to control my Sharp LED TV via the iPad. I have all my home automation set except for turning on and off my sharp tv without having to use the sharp remote. I just want one iPad sitting next to my couch without any additional remotes.

Obviously Sharp does not have an app where I can do that. I finally found an app called Mike's Remote that works fine when the TV is ON but when the TV is turned off, I cannot turn it on via this app, I guess because it's over IP.

I also tried to setup the Denon receiver so when the receiver is turned on, the TV turns on automatically as well but that doesn't seem to be working either.

How do I get over this huge hump?

My TV model is: LE845U

Thanks in advance.
