    Good Show! And to throw you one scenario-Why would you want to control aftv away from home?
    -My tech-impaired elderly mother in law watches my 3 year old son while I work. She’s gotten much better at navigating aftv but occasionally gets lost. If she does she COULD call me & I walk her through it (a tedious process that tests the patience of us both) but now I can help her just by opening the remote app & launching kodi or netflix( the only apps she uses)
