Is there an application out yet that allows you to use your DX as a Tv remote?

There are apps that you use your phone as a pc remote..but none that I know of since the X has no IR port

If you are familiar or savvy with LIRC, than you can either make or buy an IR dongle/emitter and use tour phone as a remote. I.E. Redmote, Androlirc, IRDroid etc. (All these apps are free. But you have to either make your own IR emitter or buy IRDroid's IRDongle.)

I am still learning the LIRC stuff. And I bought IRDroid's IRDongle/emitter, whatever you want to call it.

Slingbox allows you to view your tv and change channels from your phone but it's not a cheap setup.

If you are with certain cable companies you can do it. I am with Comcast and they have an Android app that lets you view the schedule plus change the channel with your dx.
