Maybe I am missing something here. But the only reason I am interested in this app is the popup notifications of SMS and caller ID. However I can not get this to work at all on Logitech Revue and Evo 4G.

I do not have live TV and only used Chrome to watch internet TV, But even with Chrome shut down, I still do not get any popups as I send myself test text messages. I am using the stock HTC Sense messaging App and the phone is receiving them. I have tried with the app in the foreground, the option to always send turned on, etc. And I still do not get anything

Guess I will just uninstall for now.

The notifications only work with the stock Android SMS messaging app.

We apologize for having to do 2 bug fix releases over the weekend. We know that users get irritated with having releases too frequently.

The first bug fix release was 2.2.7 on Saturday and fixed an issue that some users were experiencing which gave the buttons solid colors.

The second bug fix release was 2.2.8 on Sunday night which fixed an issue for users of the free version of the app which kept prompting to purchase the app.

We appreciate your understanding and continued support.

Able Remote 2.2.9 for Google TV has been released in the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... oid.remote

The ultimate Google TV remote. Turn your Android device into a Google TV remote. A Google TV featured app!

Able Remote 2.2.9 includes:
- Enhanced PIP feature.
- New DVR record button.
- Additional logos for favorite channels.
- Fix for sharing issue.

This release includes an enhanced picture-in-picture (PIP) feature. The enhanced PIP feature allows you to place the TV video anywhere on the screen using gestures. When you click the new enhanced PIP button, you will see a touch control. Use one finger to move the PIP window and use two fingers to resize the window. There are some technical limitations with this feature: you cannot interact with other apps on the screen and you cannot independently control the audio. So get your favorite app ready and then add the enhanced PIP on top.

There is a new button to allow you to directly record shows on your DVR instead of using the Bookmark/Record button to select the same action.

We have added many more channel logos for the favorite channels feature. If you got a text label for your channel, try again and see if you get a better image logo now.

Able Remote 2.3.0 for Google TV has been released in the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... oid.remote

The ultimate Google TV remote. Turn your Android device into a Google TV remote. A Google TV featured app!

Able Remote 2.3.0 includes:
- Manually add favorite channels.
- Change button styling.

This release includes a new feature to manually add favorite channels. If the channel listing does not include all your favorite channels, now you can add it yourself. If you have an over-the-air tuner, then Google TV will not list those channels; now you can add those too.

Users have asked for different buttons styles and this release now has a new setting to select from 4 different kinds of button styles.

We have received requests from users to support popular apps like Tasker and Locale to allow the automation of tasks on Android. Users want to send button commands to their Google TV devices and invoke Able Remote macros.

However, supporting this kind of automation would impose technical restrictions on Able Remote which we don't want to impose on all of our users. So, we are considering a companion app that would fully support automation and would allow users to automate buttons and Able Remote macros for their Google TV devices. This app would probably cost $0.99.

We would like to gage interest in such an app, so please leave a comment on this post if you would like us to develop such an app.

Able Remote 2.3.1 for Google TV has been released in the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... oid.remote

The ultimate Google TV remote. Turn your Android device into a Google TV remote. A Google TV featured app!

Able Remote 2.3.1 includes:
- Favorite web bookmarks.
- Support for international countries.

Many users have asked for individual buttons for web sites. In this release, the previous bookmarks feature has been moved to the favorites tabs at the bottom of the main screen. You can now create a button for each of your favorite web sites.

This release also includes improvements for international countries. Since these countries will not get channel listings from Google TV, we have added auto-complete to the manual channel feature for the most popular channels in each country. Thanks to the users who tested this release in their various countries!

For users who are experiencing issues with Able Remote and the Vizio Co-Star: The Vizio Co-Star device does not have an internal or cabled IR blaster. Only the Co-Star physical remote has a IR blaster. The physical remote can be used to send the IR commands for IP remotes such as Able Remote, but it is disabled by default. The remote goes into power save mode when the physical buttons aren’t pressed. You have to disable power save: Settings -> Devices -> Bluetooth -> Vizio XRA700 Remote -> Remote power save -> Off. The remote will be on all the time and can then be used to forward the IR commands for Able Remote. You have to point the remote at the devices and of course the remote battery will be drained faster. Its an awkward solution, but it is the only technical solution that Vizio has provided.
