URL Schemes

I'm working on my Control Pages for my home theater, and while I did create a page to replicate the AppleTV remote via IR blasting to the aTV, and while I could probably do the same thing to control my Verizon FiOS cable box, I have decided to go another route. Apple has already created a fantastic app called Remote to control the aTV, and Verizon has already created a fantastic app called My FiOS which can be used to control the cable boxes (including DVR settings and TV Guide and other things). So, instead of re-inventing the wheel, I have currently opted to create links from my Control Page to launch the apps that already do a great job.

Simply create a button and create a link to an external url.

For the Remote app, link to: remote://

For the Verizion FIOS My FiOS app, link to: vz-myfios://

This will automatically launch these apps directly from the Control Page. Of course, to get back to Indigo Touch, I'll have to double-tap the home button and go back to it. I think I can live with that.

I found these URL Schemes on this web site: http://schemes.zwapp.com/

Re: URL Schemes

Does anyone know the url scheme for the FiOS Mobile app?

I have tried:
vzw://
fios-mobile://
vz-mobile://
fiostv://
fios-tv://
vz-fios-mobile://
vz-fios://

Does the .plist file has any clues?

Re: URL Schemes

Have you tried "vz-dvr://"? That was one of the schemes listed on the site that the original post provided but I didn't see it in your list. There was another listed as "flexview://" for FiOS on Demand.

Yes, I saw those listed on that site, but unfortunately they both do nothing.
