    Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

    Smart Remote:
    Replace all of your remotes with the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Smart Remote can control your TV, DVR, DVD player and other home-entertainment equipment.

    well the way I read it it implies there's an ir out on the tab like a normal remote?? Obviously I know there's the network remote on play store/ sammy apps themselves( no smart Remote tho on sammy apps)..

    On my 7", there's an IR on the left side of tab. You can use it with the Peel app that comes delivered. I've never tried using it though. Someone also mentioned Touchsquid
