That's what I'm saying. It does basic HDMI-CEC. All it missing is add support for common playback commands like Play, Stop, Pause, FF and REW which is also supported by HDMI-CEC. That will be perfect. I have nothing against phone control but to me personally that's a retarded way to watch a movie. The delays in IP controls are always a joy killer to me. I personally prefer the plain old IR control.
