IR is really awkward
In addition to having to search to find out how to use it, I can't find a way to have a normal remote to turn my TV off, only a short cut which I don't normally use.
We just released a Preview of a new app designed for IR take a look! It is still in Preview and things will change.
I hope this new functionality will be baked into Unified Remote as well.
I for one, do not want to have to use two apps to control my entertainment centre.....
