myremote for Android


Established Member
Just downloaded this app the other day :thumbsup:

very good, can control media center and use my desires keyboard to browse the web etc.

only gripe is that the keys don't work with mpc-hc yet (which i have launching as an external player from media browser)

not a major issue as the video plays then returns back to media center when its done, but i'll probably look at this a bit more.

all in all highly recommended

Yep, it's a great backup for when you can't find the standard MCE remote!

If you port forward the myRemote port (9875 I think?) through your router to your MC then you can connect using your external IP address and control the HTPC through your 3G/H connection without having to connect via wifi also.

There's a decent client for RemotePotato to set recordings remotely called 'Remote Media'. That also has a virtual IP based remote built in but the look&feel isn't as good as myRemote. Once that's sorted though I'll probably just stick to using the RemotePotato app only.

I did see the port forward option, but i mostly have wifi on at home... would be cool to mess with the olther half when i'm not there though would be like a channel changing ghost!

I have been meaning to try remote potato out for a while - really for the streaming capability instead of the remote guide /record
