Dijit remote for iPad arrives

Dijit on Friday brought out an iPad-optimized version of its remote control app (App Store). The now-universal port lets users steer a Griffin Beacon , and thus the TV, with many more actions on screen at once. Viewers can have both direct controls, device inputs, social activity, and the show guide all visible at the same time, with video previews of some shows available without disrupting the main picture.

Griffin Beacon now talks to Android tablet, phone

Griffin filled a gap in Android home theater control by releasing Beacon for Android. The combination of the device and Dijit's app gives the same Bluetooth-to-IR remote control support as from the iOS version of half a year ago. It's optimized both for smartphones and tablets and takes advantage of the extra space on a tablet to show the program listing, detailed show info, and the remote all at once.

Griffin unveils Beacon iOS remote

Griffin on Wednesday shipped a wireless remote bridge for iPhone and iPod touch owners that promises a simpler link than most for controlling a home theater. A Beacon adapter translates a Bluetooth link from the iOS device to an infrared signal that upwards of 200,000 devices can understand. It supports navigation, input, volume, and other common controls on anything from TVs and Blu-ray players to DVRs and the Apple TV.
