    Yes, but the OP said he wanted to develop his own universal remote app. Don't know if he can "get to" the IR device on the VTAB. Also don't know if it's a transceiver. Vizio refers to it as an "IR Blaster" and, as-delivered by Vizio, it has to ability to "learn."

    It would be great if it was a transceiver and other devs could get access to the device.

    Has no-one thought of the Sony S1? That thing is supposed to have an infrared port to the best of my knowledge. It's touted as a big feature, too, and (again, to the best of my knowledge) is compatible with a very wide variety of devices.

    Awaiting the Transformer Prime.

    The Sony Tablet S and Galaxy Tab 7" Plus (just launched) are both locked. I've researched both as I also want to make an app available on a tablet using the IR port. I think Google is trying to use the lack of IR support in Android as a way to push Google TV adoption just like Apple is using it to push Apple TV adoption with AirPlay. It's a shame, really, because we developers could be making much better apps than the universal remote "consolidation" apps that currently ship with these products. I'm constantly flustered when I see how short sighted the hardware companies and developers are at who produce these products only to let them stagnate in a market full of sameness.

    The Vizio Tablet comes with infrared port and also comes with the remote control application, so if you want to control your tv, etc.. it will do it!

    Thank you

    Thank you
    I need a programmers api i can write to for the ir port. I want my own app that combines dvr functionality with touch screen web connected content. See peel.com for examples on why traditional ir remote apps just dont cut it in todays connected world

    Does the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 not have IR? My wife's favorite thing to do is to control our DVR with her Tab 2. I assume that was done by IR.

    Yes it does. I have that tablet. It uses a dedicated app which is decent but somewhat limiting. I would assume no other apps would work with it.
