    Hi guys,

    I would like to know if the ipad can be programmed to use as a universal remote control, eg, the tv, hi-fi, projector and the gate to my house.

    If I am not wrong, ipad does not have infrared, but maybe the wi-fi from it can be sent to another device to throw the infrared signal to the individual appliances.

    Can ipad use nevo?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, but not using RF. It'll communicate using Wi-Fi over TCP/IP (my Crestron remote currently does this, as does the current "Apple Remote" app, so it's nothing new, it's just not going to be a line-of-sight RF remote).

    Lol. I use my iPhone to control Apple tv I don't think I want my new ipad on coffee table as a remote as it will be covered in finger prints from family not to mention maybe damaged, I have 3 adult kids at home love to eat kentucky fried in front of tv.

    That is one thing that is on the iPad wish list for many, to have the iPhone app for iTunes/Apple TV. I think I am just going to get a new Harmony remote.
