    Is it a universal remote?

      I’d love to see a partnership with some huge Cable/Dish companies to provide an app that is also a Programming guide as well as the Remote.

      How great would that be?

      Meant to say, it must be if it’s going to work with the various TV’s made. It would have to be considered a “Universal TV” Remote. Whether it’s a Universal Device Remote is unclear from what I saw.
