Thinking on getting rid of my Note 3 and getting the M8. I wanted to know if it has the ability to change the source on a TV and navigate through the menus with arrow/enter buttons or something? Also, can you control it from the notification shade? See the attached pictures of what the Note 3 has.

Thanks!

Yes it controls my Samsung plasma and led TV. Input controls all work. No on the notifications screen.

It does have a feature for the notification pull down. IMO, the HTC remote app is far superior to that of Samsung's watch on.

LOL Yes, it does. And a very cool HTC TV app to control it. I find it funny this is now a huge deal...I remember doing this with my OLD Palm Treo 650 back in the day...and then the backlash for a long time on how an IR blaster is useless yada yada and phone companies got rid of them basically and now it has come full circle.

Also funny, off point, with all the tablets/swivel screens/fold back laptops/tablets now are the rage. I remember back in 2003 my company bought a bunch of these Toshiba Protégé laptops, which apparently was a decade ahead of it's time as those things never took off.

The tv app on the M8 is loads better than watch on, on my S4. Better range as well. It pulls all the channels from direct tv.. kinda like the Netflix layout. The volume rockers control volume on tv and you don't have to move from the attached screenshot to select channels. So, you can go to a particular channel and not have to " go back" to continue browsing...I'm actually using this. Every time I think this device couldn't get better, something pops out lol. Love it.
