    Like the title says. I've searched and searched but my google-fu is weak. I really want to be able to control my tv, specifically, the direct tv box with my atrix. I would be willing to pay a few bucks for it too. Is there an app for that?

    I know someone else had this idea too. And I could have sworn I heard of a phone doing this but I just can't remember.

    AFAIK unless your TV is equipped with Bluetooth or is connected to Wifi I don't think that would be possible. TV's generally use IR sensors to connect to their remotes and unless im mistaken the Atrix does not have an IR sensor.

    But I would be interested to hear if anyone knows otherwise. I'll bump this post.

    My tv has wifi!! its a vizio xvt or something. It has wifi and internet apps. I can't check my email on it, but I got pandora for it. I figured it wouldn't work, but I just had to ask.
