Please Fix This!
Love the app so far....but, PLEASE adjust the Satellite TV controls! It's not very ergonomic as is. First of all, this major issue there is that when you pull up the guide, you cannot scroll down channel by channel! The huge arrow buttons are wonderful, a major upgrade from the old Savant app, but when I try to use them to go down or up to the next channel, the guide closes and it goes to the highlighted channel. The page to page buttons at the bottom seem to work fine (they are in kind-of in an odd position and small), but when your get to the guide page you want, you cannot tab from channel to channel with the arrows. Those wonderful big buttons are useless right now! Also, when you go to the number pad page on the app, the numbers definitely need to be the first thing you see. The handle to scroll down is in a very awkward position and doesn't always work on the first try. I hate having to pull the number pad up to direct-input a channel. The keys above the number buttons are not used nearly as often as the number buttons. These two basic items would greatly improve the ergonomics and functionality, and then be a definite 5-star app.
Great when configured by the right professional!
It’s a great system without a doubt. I see a few people complaining about random issues here, but you guys have to understand: it’s essential to have a good installation made by a skilled professional, otherwise, the system won’t work as it should.
Pros and Cons, but overall a great app!
I've been a Savant system owner for over a year. Originally setup with TrueControl, my Savant reseller suggested I try the Savant app. I like it very much. The interface is slick and up to date (unlike TC, which is very... 2005). There are pros and cons:
* great interface
* ability to creates scenes
* ability to assign permissions to other family members
* some parts of the interface still need minor tweaks
* TV number buttons need letters ("ABC" on number two)
* app can drain battery
Still five stars, even with some minor cons.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
