FreeAgent Theater+ - iPhone remote

Setup and usage information for the iPhone remote control app.

To achieve full functionality with the FreeAgent Theater+ iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch remote, you must have firmware version 2.23.

To verify what version of firmware is currently running on your FreeAgent Theater+:

  1. From the Remote, press Menu.
  2. Choose Settings.
  3. The Settings menu opens. Press the Down arrow 3 times
  4. Select Version Information.

To install the FreeAgent Theater+ remote app to your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch:  

  1. Go to the App store and search for 'Seagate'.
    s The Seagate-branded app may only be available in North America. For any other location, search 'Net Remote'.
  2. Install this free app.
  3. Press Search and the app will automatically find the FreeAgent Theater + device(s) on your network.

The app does not send commands to the FreeAgent Theater + via infrared like the traditional remote, but instead sends commands via wi-fi.  This means your FreeAgent Theater + must be connected to a wireless router for the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch remote to work. 

Limitation: The power button does not work to power up the FreeAgent Theater+.
