No IR blaster, what now?

Miembro

So I need help. My s6 had an IR blaster and I controlled all tvs in my home with it.

My pixel does not have said blaster.

Any tricks out there to control the TV with your phone if you don't have a blaster?

Obviously my tvs are a few years old that I need this for....not smart TVs no wifi.  Chromecast can be used to turn tv on but not off and obviously only allows control of Chromecast media.

HELPPPPP!

I believe this a true definition of first world problem.

Logitech Harmony is a great product.  If you don't want to spend that kind of money, there are many cheap universal remotes you can buy on Amazon or at Walmart or Best Buy etc.  You don't need the manufacturer original which are overpriced to replace.

Use the real remote?

Thank you for this very intelligent input. But my phone can do so much more integrated with the tv using anymote that I prefer it many times.

Also cannot find the remote for one tv. Another tv remote went faulty and now I have to get a new remote from my provider.

Thanks again very good advice though.

If you look on eBay they have ir adapters that plug in your headphone jack. They cost about a dollar and are supported by certain apps. They are very small and double at keeping garbage out of your headphone jack
