How to Control a Sony Home Theater Using an iPad
Sony offers a Media Remote app for the Apple iPad that turns the tablet into an advanced remote control for your Sony home theater system, providing both devices are connected to your home network. Unlike standard remote control handsets that can only operate equipment in the same room, you can use the Media Remote app on the iPad to control the home theater system from anywhere in your house. The iPad's touchscreen interface makes the device easy to use as a remote control and the size of the iPad means it's much harder to misplace than a traditional remote control handset. To control your Sony home theater system with an iPad, download the Media Remote app on your iPad, configure the home theater system's network settings and then pair it with the Media Remote app.
