Re: Google TV Remote Control App With Skins(Beta Updated:12/
Posted: Sun Oct 13, 2013 11:03 am
Every Google TV I've had (Logitech Revue, Netgear NeoTV Prime, Sony NSZ-GS7) has had trouble with connecting to the remote control app. I've tried multiple apps including the official Google TV Remote app, Logitech's Harmony app, Able Remote, Sony's Media Remote and TV Side view, and Cromemote the Google Chrome Extension. Every remote control app will pair with the TV, but it takes several tries just to find the TV. Then once it's paired if I close down the app and come back to it, the app will take forever to find my tv again, if the app finds my tv at all. Bottom line is: no matter what device I install the remote app on (tablet, phone, pc) no matter what remote app I'm using, no matter what Google TV I use it doesn't consistently connect. The problem is either with the Wi-Fi remote control protocol that the TV uses to take commands from a remote app, or with my network. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting remote apps to work consistently.
