X1 Remote App with Voice Command for iPad

X1 Remote App with Voice Command for iPad

The X1 Remote App for the iPhone works great.

However, as I use an iPad to control all the AV equipment, including the Pace 013 X1 DVR, it would be very nice to have an iPad vesion of the current iPhone app. Please consider this a request.

 

Before anyone rsponds:

- Yes, there are several iPad apps, but none of them have voice command

- No, you can't run the iPhone app on the iPad

Hi Rustyben,

Thank you for your reply.

Apparently the remote control app with Voice Control is not universal.

This is the app with the microphone in the app icon.

If you try loading it from iTunes, it only loads to the iPhone.

If you try from the App Store on the iPad, it doesn't even find it.

Yes, there are several other apps for the iPad, but none of them have Voice Control.

Voice Control is the feature I am looking for on the iPad.

The xfinity store couldn't get it to load either.

But, perhaps I'm doing something wrong?


I just downloaded this app to my iPad Pro 9.7 from the App Store. Try searching tor "xfinity", then in the upper-left change iPad Only to iPhone Only ... scroll down and you should see the Xfinity TV X1 Remote app (red icon with microphone in center). Even though it's designed for the iPhone (portrait only) and hasn't been updated since Feb 2014, it still functions fine on an iPad.

Hi milehiguy,

Thank you for your reply. I finally got it to work — hadn't noticed the tiny "iPad only" filter.
