Important things you should know
• The d2h Smart Remote App is available for Videocon d2h Users only
• It is compatible with only select models of Videocon d2h STBs
• The d2h STB should support Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Connectivity
• Bluetooth connectivity is made available to some d2h STB models through a d2h Bluetooth Dongle which has to be bought as an accessory. After purchasing the dongle, user needs to call the customer care to upgrade the d2h STB software to enable connectivity and subsequently for the App to function.
• In case of Bluetooth Connectivity, features like Media Sharing can be possible only with the help of a USB hub on which both the d2h Bluetooth Dongle and the USB storage (to store shared content) have to be connected.
• Videocon d2h does not sell the USB hub and can be purchased from the market.
• We recommend HUB iball 4 Port Piano 44
• Usage of the application is free. However the user should bear the data charges (as charged by the Internet Service Provider) for downloading the App from Google Play Store.
