How to control your home theater with Quick Remote on the LG G2

LG_G2_Quick_Remote

IR blasters are starting to become the norm on Android phones, which means you can control your home theater system or devices in other rooms in your house. The LG G2 comes with not only an IR blaster, but you will also find the Quick Remote app pre-installed. With Quick Remote, you can add your TV, cable/satellite box, AV receiver, DVD player, and more, so that you can control them via your G2. You can even setup different components for different rooms of your house such as your bedroom, kitchen, den, and office.

Quick Remote is a little limited in that you won’t find built-in programming guide information like Samsung’s WatchON or HTC TV, but it’s easy to setup and it works well. Hit the break for my video showing you how it all works, and be sure to check out our other LG G2 guides.

    Yes it is Great. It worked with Panasonic TV and LG A/C. But it is not working with : Star Link receiver, Mitsubishi A/c and westpoint A.c.

    Can we add them

    • Syed Zillay Ali

      Yes we can add them. All you need to do is pick up the original remote, and follow the step by step guide after clicking on Universal Remote. You’ll have to manually drag and drop the required buttons and tune the frequency for each one. Don’t worry, It will copy the frequency from the original remote.

      • Renee Bolin

        Where is the IR button at? Explain a little more on how to work it.

        • Syed Zillay Ali

          Hit the + sign and selected “Customizable Remote”
          Named the remote (for example “My AC” in case of Air Conditioner)
          Organize the buttons on the virtual remote in the app the same way they are on the Original device remote (in this case, your AC)
          Go through and programmed each button one by one. They’ll each be highlighted on the app, and you need to press the corresponding button on the original AC remote while aiming it at the IR blaster on the top of your phone.
          If done right, each function should be recognized and saved automatically

  • Hercules Vangod

    I just bought my Android but there isn’t a big list to select from. I don’t see Trutech TV or more and there is no VCR/DVD/Blu-ray, only TV and Cable box. What devices does the Quickremote support. Oh and my phone is a LG Optimus F6. Quickremote came with it.

    Here is a Step by Step guide I copied from another forum.

    Hit the + sign and selected “Customizable Remote”
    Named the remote (for example “My AC” in case of Air Conditioner)
    Organize the buttons on the virtual remote in the app the same way they are on the Original device remote (in this case, your AC)
    Go through and programmed each button one by one. They’ll each be highlighted on the app, and you need to press the corresponding button on the original AC remote while aiming it at the IR blaster on the top of your phone.
