Right now I have the Net3 remote, which I guess is a radio remote. If I want to get the iPad app, then I can't use the radio receiver for the Net3 remote to interface wirelessly to the ion console, correct? I need to set the ion console up on its own wireless router.
I find that the Net3 remote sucks batteries dry within a very short time, which is why I want to try the app. Is this common, or is my experience abnormal?
Also, if the iPad will need to be set up on the separate network, then what do you guys do if you need to access the internet or something else on another network? Do you just switch networks back and forth when needed?
I haven't researched this as much as I should have, but hopefully you guys can let me know your experiences.
Yes, you'll need to set up a wireless network and connect your Ion and your iPad/iPhone to that.
There's a very helpful page which talks you through all of that here http://www.etcconnect.com/Community/wikis/products/irfr-how-to-setup-your-wireless-network.aspx
It's fairly easy on iOS to change your wireless network when you need too. It can be a little bit of a pain if you need to do it a lot, but I've now found it unbearable.
I think you'll love the iRFR, it's really easy to use and exposes a lot of great features.

Thanks! That is what I needed to know, and I the link is perfect. One clarification though, I assume that you meant that you have NOT found switching to be unbearable?
Ah yes *NOT* unbearable, time for coffee I feel! Glad that was of some help.
LOL, I was pretty sure that was what you meant! Thanks for your help.
