Tatasky mp3 infrared accessory unboxing. Its available for 300 Rs from tatasky
How to setup up the universal remote with the mp3 accessory & tatasky mobile app
Comparison between Tatasky settop box remote v/s Mobile app universal remote
Tatasky mobile universal remote is the best option if you want to control multiple devices like tv, dvd and amplifiers etc. If you just have a tv and set top box its not worth the hassle.
There is a few seconds delay which can get annoying after a while. They also need to improve the app ui interface. now you have to fumble 3 screens to get all the set top box controls.
There is not much they can do technology wise, so all we can hope is a iPad app and a better remote interface. I do have to give them credit for thinking forward with such an audacious idea.
