The recognition quality can vary depending on the selected mode of recognition and sound environment (room size, background noise, etc.).. For best results in noisy environments, try the following recommendations:
- Do not expose the device to direct sound sources
- Position the device closer to the couch than the TV
- Keep the device in a confined place (jacket pocket, under a pillow, etc.)
- Regularly update your application (we often improve recognition thanks to your feedback).

Future developments are:
- Ability to add a device on TVs that do not have a Box (Soon for sale)
- Add more TV and Box supports…
- Improve recognition engines for a result close to 100%.
- Establishment of a community FreeMuters ;)
- Added function to increase and decrease the volume with audio recognition.
- Automatic volume adjustment based on decibels. The end of sound volume increase during TV advertising!

Thank you for your encouragement and patience!
