Default Remote Control?

Anyone know of a remote control app that will control tv/cable/satellite boxes? Or if its even possible for one to be made? My boyfriend wants to use his Evo to change the channel on the tv where he works anonymously. Lol Only finding remotes for pc's, media players etc.

Sent from my Evo!
There are no stupid questions. Unless the answer to your question is "Earth".

If you have Verizon Fios TV, you can use the FIOS TV Remote App by Verizon to completely control any of the set top boxes in your house over Wi-Fi. Just search for "Fios" in the market to find the app. I use it all the time and is is very cool.

well the evo doesn't have a built in ir-blaster. but you could use a slingbox. and then you can take full control over
your tv. and that includes turnning it off and on, channel changing and even have it work your dvr. from anywere in the world as long you have a cell signal

There are afew IR blasters out there that plug into the headphone jack, but I have only been able to find ones designed for iPhones.

This article suggests there is a android product on it's way.
