Ok, after having this for almost a week now, I have to say there are two things that bother me the most, and a few small things as well. Besides the propitiatory cord/lack of a on board USB (I hate that with a passion) , I have had an even bigger problem with the Peel remote. If I had one word to describe, I am not sure "hate" would be strong enough. My issues are several-fold, and in every aspect of trying to use the thing. The bottom line for most of them is that it lacks options or the ability to be customized. 1) Upon turning on the app, it it forces you to landscape orientation. What if I want to hold it portrait while still pointing the emitter directly at the TV/other devices? Too bad. 2) Upon turning on the app, it automatically starts downloading programs, and keeps attempting to do so even if you have the wi-fi OFF. Sometimes all I want to do is turn down the volume, or pause, and I want to do it now. If I wanted to wait I would go get my other remote. There is no way to turn this off, it is a hard coded behavior, not configurable. It still even tries to find programs even if you have unchecked all genres. For me, who has a limited FAP and poor bandwidth for the content I do download, it makes the experience frustrating. 3) While automatically downloading the programs (or trying to), it hangs the entire tablet. Can't exit the app or even go to the home screen. My handy 400 dollar device is useless as it attempts to do something I didn't want it to do in the first place. 4) I understand it tries to streamline the adding of new devices to control, but it should offer the OPTION of picking the exact device. I have had problems with this on 2 accounts 4A) If I want to program my remote to work with my BD player, while my kids are watching a cartoon or something, I don't WANT it changing my HDMI input, etc. Most likely I just want to be able to pause the BD player if someone else has the remote or whatever. 4B) My Philips DVD player/sound system does NOT have a power on from the remote. So no way to check that the Peel has the correct code. However I know my exact model number, or alternately let it do some OTHER function besides mess with the power. 5) I want to be able to use more of the screen for controls, not pictures of TV shows that I have no interest in. The combined controls for my DirecTV DVR and TV on the Peel remote have already made me twice lose the live bufffer on TV programs I was watching, because it changed the channel when I was just trying to change the volume. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find any other options to control the IR on the Samsung 7 plus. This has truly soured my entire experience with this tablet, since the IR was one of the killer features that made me want it over other tablets. Last night I tried 10 different remote apps, but all of them required external hardware and would note work with a built in IR emitter. And don't get me started on the wifi or bluetooth ones. So, after that rant, does anyone know where to find some alternate IR remote program that will work with the IR on the Samsung Galaxy 7 plus?
