From that on, you can control virtually almost every AV gear you have at home and it even lets you easily find your favorite TV shows.
Using the free Zero1 iOS app on your iPhone, you can optimize the layout of your own remote. Users can freely create macros which create shortcuts to functions at one touch only.
