    That would be the most awesome addition to the phone! Change the TV with the phone. Better yet, they should start making tv's with bluetooth ports that control the signal rather than infrared.

    100 dollars though...That's extremely high priced for apps I have seen that do the same thing that charge much, much less.

    That's probably the dumbest idea yet for the phone. Why don't you just use a stinkin universal remote?

    i think eventually tvs will use WIFI for just about everything. ATT already has U-Verse which provides TV over IP.

    It would make sense to have a tv connected to a secure network, that way you could stream your favorite shows to any device you want, and set controls, recordngs, etc with it.

    I quite like the idea.

    I keep my phone with me so If I need to adjust the volume, channel etc and the kids have "misplaced" the remote i could access it quite quickly.

    also as others have stated with the bluetooth communication it would SAVE me $20.00 on buying a remote for my PS3.

    Finally I have yet to see a UV/Bluetooth Universal remote that can control my TV/DVD/Receiver/Cable Box and PS3

    There were similar apps that did the same thing for the n95 but not all TV's worked. You have to type in the tv model number and something else. I forgot. It's been a while since I were on their forums.
