With Tivo Command you can control your network enabled TiVo directly from your WiFi connected Windows Phone. 

Tivo Command’s many features make it the best Tivo remote control on Windows Phone:

● Similar to the physical TiVo remote, making the transition to Tivo Command easy and straight forward.

● Automatically finds all your network enabled TiVo devices on your network. No need to enter IP addresses directly.

● WiFi control of your TiVo devices doesn’t need line of sight, like old-fashioned IR-based remote controls do. 

● Use voice commands for quick and easy access to your favorite channels, upcoming episode information, or to schedule new recordings. You can even find movie ratings on IMDB, Flixster, and Netflix by voice.

● Use your Windows Phone’s on-screen keyboard to enter text. No more scrolling thru the alphabet one letter at a time with left, right, up, and down.

Tivo Command works with all TiVo DVRs that offer network based remote control access, such as the TiVo Series 3, TiVo HD, and TiVo Premiere. 

To enable this feature on your TiVo, enable ‘Network Remote Control’ in Messages and settings > Settings > Remote, CableCARD, & Devices > Network Remote Control > Enable.

    Had to use this for a few days when the kids hid the remote (not cool with NFL playoffs on) but found this and couldn't be more impressed with the speed and overall interface of this app. Almost prefer it to the real remote now, even though we did end up finding it. Nice job on the app!

    Working as a remote while in the room with the Tivo unit, this AP works great. But, running on a Nokia Lumia Windows phone, this will not connect to TiVo.com to remotely setup recordings.

    Great app. Works flawlessly. Please add a mode where you are controlling via gestures instead of buttons (like the Apple remote app). This allows you to navigate without looking at the screen all the time.

    Works great with our new TiVo Roamio and minis. Response time is very fast. It wont sign on to my TiVo account though for voice command to work but still really nice. I'd pay a few bucks for it.
