Able Remote 2.3.3 for Google TV has been released in the Google Play Store: ... oid.remote

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

Able Remote 2.3.3 includes:
- Favorite apps.
- New buttons for device power and inputs.
- Support for channel searches.
- Setting for weather temperature scale.
- Setting for number of button panels.
- Various bug fixes.

You can now put shortcuts to all your favorite apps in the new favorites tab. You can also reduce the number of button panels for the device buttons at the top of the screen.

Users have asked for more device buttons to control their TV's, STB's and AVR's; you can now control the power and set the inputs with individual device buttons.

Our international users have asked for a way to change the weather temperature scale between fahrenheit and celsius. By default the USA displays the temperatures in fahrenheit and the rest of the world in celsius.

Re: Able Remote for Google TV

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.
