Able Remote 2.2.1 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 2.2.1 includes:
- Voice commands for playing Google Music
- Android widget to control Google TV Play Music
- Dash character for number pad for local channels


A new voice command has been added to launch Google's Play Music app on Google TV. To launch the app and start playing music, click on the voice command button and say "play". To start playing a particular track say "play" and the track name, for example "play firework". The track name is matched by the Google Play Music app and can be strict and might not always match your track. Also, if a track is matched it will play automatically, but if a playlist or album is matched it will only be selected due to technical limitations with the API.

There is also a new Android widget for your mobile device to remotely control the Google Play Music app on your Google TV. On your mobile device, press 'Menu/Add/Widgets'. Select 'Able Remote Play Music' from the list of widgets. You will be prompted to select which Google TV to control. The widget has a button to play or pause the music and another button to select the next track. The current track and artist is displayed on the widget. You can configure multiple widgets, each for a different Google TV.

Able Remote 2.2.2 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 2.2.2 includes:
- Favorite channels
- Double-click volume adjustment
- Buttons for selecting touch panels
- Replaced widgets feature with weather button
- Improved network support for Google Play Music widget

Users have requested the ability to configure a list of favorite channels and be able to jump between those quickly. In this release we have added a new button at the bottom of the screen which allows users to configure up to 21 favorite TV channels. Clicking on an empty space will allow you to select your favorite channel. Clicking on a configured channel will make your TV change to that channel.

When you jump from live TV to Google Play Music or YouTube, there is usually a big jump in the volume which forces you to quickly adjust the volume level. In this release we have added a feature which can be enabled in Menu/Settings to quickly adjust the volume. Simply double-click on the physical volume buttons and the volume will quickly adjust by the configured amount.

Users have requested a faster way to jump between the various touch panels. In this release we have added buttons for each touch panel which allows you to jump to any of the touch panel directly.

Based on analytics, users are mostly using the weather and clock widgets. We have decided to remove our proprietary widget feature and replace it with a weather button that will display the weather and clock as an overlay.

Thanks for the frequent updates! The option to always send notifications sounds nice!

One question: Is it possible to make vol up/down buttons for controlling the AV receiver instead of TV only? This might be a problem if it is only supported by Logitech Revue.

The audio output is configured and controlled by the Google TV device. Able Remote can only send commands to increase or decrease the volume, the Google TV device decides how to control the attached devices with that command. You can configure the Logitech device to control the AV receiver, that is how my setup is working. Run the wizard under Settings/TV & AV Receiver.

Able Remote 2.2.4 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 2.2.4 includes:
- Share and switch button layout.
- Backup and restore all settings.
- Prefer HD setting.
- Fix for channel listings.

Now you can share your button layout with family and friends. Once you have configured your button layout, use 'Menu/Share Button Layout' to share the layout. You can share the layout by email or use Google Drive or Dropbox. If somebody shares the layout with you, open the layout file on your mobile device to import the button layout. After the layout has been imported, use 'Menu/Switch Button Layout' in Able Remote to select the imported layout.

Able Remote now allows you to backup all your settings and button layout to an SD card using 'Menu/Backup'. If you need to do a factory reset on your phone or move to a new phone, you can now restore all the settings from the SD card using 'Menu/Restore'.

There is a new setting that allows you to prefer HD channels. When you select a TV channel from the channel listing, Able Remote will automatically attempt to find the HD version of that channel.

This release also includes a workaround for a channel listing issue which prevented some users from getting the list of channels. Dish customers will not get channel listings due to a Google TV limitation.
