Tvisted Remote is an innovative TV remote control – using WiFi or Infrared (IR-Blaster)
Television – finally smart. Tvisted Remote lets you remote control all features of your Smart TV easily. Usually, the app will even auto-detect your channel numbers and is ready to go in a few seconds. Just setup your favorites and forget about the hundreds of channels available. You can even switch channels and adjust volume just by swiping across the screen – no need to look at your smartphone or tablet just to control your TV.
Tvisted Remote works with any up-to-date Android smart phone or tablet. We currently support Samsung Smart TVs (using WiFi) and about 4200 additional devices of different brands (using infrared). For connecting to a Philips TV using WiFi please check out our other apps.
To use WiFi, your handset and TV need to be connected to same network.
If your Samsung Smart TV comes with the “Smart Hub” feature, you’re good to go. Same applies to certain Samsung Blueray/DVD Players and Set-Top Boxes. Tvisted supports Samsung Smart TVs from generations C, D, E, F and H (not older than 2010). The mobile app contacts the Smart TV over local network (using WiFi) – hence the Samsung Smart TV needs to be connected to your local network using WiFi or a network cable.
Please note: Unfortunately we currently do have limited support for the 2014 “H”-Series only due to some technical changes made by Samsung. Stay tuned. We’ll figure it out.
Please be aware that auto detection will work properly with Series E, F and H, just as some of Series C and D. With Series C and D please ensure that 'Remote Control' within your TV settings is enabled. Routers without "Universal Plug'n'Play" (UPnP) enabled and “DLNA Broadcast” allowed will require you to enter the IP address manually as this prevents auto-detection.
How to connect to the TV using WiFi:
1. Please make sure that your smartphone/tablet and your TV are both connected to the same WiFi network
2. Make sure the TV is turned on and start the app – it will now look up the TV automatically
3. If your TV (on the TV screen) requires approval for the connection please press OK on your “classic” remote control once

Using Infrared (yet a bit experimental)
To use infrared, your mobile device needs to have an infrared blaster. And obviously: Line of sight to the device.
If so, Tvisted can remote control roughly 4200 TVs, Cable Boxes, Disc Players, Stereos and Set-Top Boxes. All major TV brands (e.g. Samsung, LG, Sony, Panasonic) and cable boxes are supported. We’ll come up with a list soon – for now, we suggest you just try it for yourself. The mobile app detects the existence of an infrared blaster automatically and lets you select the type and manufacturer. Since every model has got its different infrared code sets you’ll be asked to just try them (5 different ones at most). If there’s a matching code set, your device will turn on (or off in case you have turned it on before).
We’re still collecting more devices and more important: more code sets. If the entire code set for your device or just a few keys are missing, please drop a line in our support forum.
The infrared feature requires an Android 4.2 (“KitKat”) handset with built-in IR blaster and operates well on the following handsets:
- Galaxy S IV, SIV mini, S5, S5 mini
- Galaxy MEGA
- Galaxy Tab 7.0 plus
- Galaxy Tab 7.7 plus
- Galaxy Tab 2 7.0
- Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
- Galaxy Tab 3 8.0
- Galaxy Note 3
- Galaxy Note 8.0
- Galaxy Note 10.1
- LG G2
- LG G3
Let us know if it works on a device not listed here.
