AWESOME Except one aggravating bug

This would be 5 stars except for a really annoying bug. If you launch a show from the app using recorded shows, you cannot then use the remote feature in the app to control that show. you fist have to close the app and reopen it. The list of upcoming premiers is an AWESOME feature though.

Useless in Windows 10

Dead product. With no WMC in Windows 10 Microsoft has made this orphaned for Win7 and Win8 users because this has to have WMC to run; in which case, just use WMC since this app has limited extra functionality. Win7 and Win8 are limited support releases now with Microsoft stopping support for both in the next 3-5 years.

Must have for wmc once working properly!

Update no longer working now that I have digital antenna only. Will no longer show any channels or guide. Tired of always having to troubleshoot these programs. This app does NOT let you watch TV. Just a controller with TV guide and tour movie library with metadata. Repeat you can NOT stream anything. great app if you have everything working. Some people having trouble with the way router is setup. Needs to have port forwarding enabled. Check the forums at the green button for help. For me I was having movie library problems. After manually stopping the cdata and yamm services once again on my htpc, and deleting cached app data, I have got most of my movie library to show up!

What is everybody so excited about?

I see all these 5-star reviews and I wonder what I'm missing. I can't watch TV with the app. I can't watch recordings. I can't even watch my own movies. All I can do is tell WMC what to do. That's fine. It's useful, I guess, but why is glorified $5 remote worth five stars?

Great example od a Windows 8 app

if you use Microsoft Media Center then this app is a must purchase. The design is fantastic and makes adding shows to my media center so easy. I have even purchased this app on my iPhone and iPad as well as my daughter's Windows phone. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that it doesn't do remote play of recorded shows. It doesn't make claims to do so but something that would make Media Center and this app even more fantastic.

My Media Center

This app was great. It had problems on windows 7 but it ran and while it was running it worked great. I have recently updated my MediaCenter machine to windows 8.1 and the app does not run. Im not the only one that is having the problem either. Im not talking about the phone/remote app I am referring to the server side but if that doesn't run the other half has no purpose. Ceton has such potential but just cant seem to deliver on some of their products.

Good for what it is. Installed perfectly.

Really nice interface, but it does not stream video to your Windows 8 device. This is a very slick remote control application only. Don't throw Remote Potato away just yet. Update: When I installed an Xbox 360 as a media center extender and connected it to my living room television the true value of this software became evident. It detects both my media center on my main pc and the extender. I can select between the two to control with this app. It is very much easier to manage my media center saved programs and to save and delete programs. I use a tablet computer for all this goodness!

Great app!

Perfect for managing my media center DVR. Steaming to my device would be supper cool. I hate to say it but the remote is the ugliest thing I've seen on a modern ui app but it works. Give it slick ui pass and keep the updates coming, I have seen maybe one update. Keep up the good work!

Very well designed Windows 8 app. It could use a few extra features, but for a first version Ceton knocked it out of the park! Since buying the Windows 8 app I have purchased the Windows Phone 8 app and the two together make the best combination. Now when I visit my kids I cringe every time they bring up the menu on their DVR. :)
