    Default Remote control for dreambox using wifi enabled smartphone/tablet

    This little addon has been design for C16 which is still W.I.P. but Iīm posting it here for those still on C15.1e to test and give feedback. It gives you the ability to control your dreambox via your phone/tablet using you home network.

    In order to use your phone as a remote you will need
    1. A smart phone/tablet with a web browser and wifi access
    2. An internet connection to your dreambox.

    First check that your dreambox is connected to the network and make a note of its I.P. address (Menu>Settings>Network>Show Active Network Settings)

    Next unzip the attachment below and copy the two files ( RC.html , REMOTE.css ) and the folder (images) into /var/share/httpd on your box. The existing images folder is empty so you can safely overwrite it.

    Finally on your phone/tablets browser enter {I.P. box}/RC.html ( e.g. 192.168.1.120/RC.html ).

    Thatīs it you now have access to your dreambox via your phone/tablet.

    Please test it out and give me any feedback regarding any glitches/enhancements.

    When leaving feedback please include details of the browser used, the mobile/tablet used and the operating system. (e.g. Chrome,Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Android 5.0 )

    Double tap on any background area of the screen and it should zoom back out.
