Google TV Discussion  - 
 
Posting this and Pinning it so people know what is going on.
Me and many others were brought in as Google TV Ambassadors on
8/31/12

From that time to now to make a long story short Google TV rose and fell and was replaced with the new Android TV that Google now sells.

The Android TV that is now being sold seems to be more robust and actually gets more updates I believe then Google TVs tended to get and is more popular as well.

Many of the old folks that I started with moved on when Google dropped support of Google TV and came out with the Android TVs.

Me and +Matt Lane  have been basically removing spam as with this many people it draws the spammers like crazy.

After Google shut down the Channel Lineup server and made people upset and come here expecting a fix due to needing it if they reset their google tvs to factory defaults and tried scanning for new channels I did try reaching out to google many times and basically got told hey call the makers of your google tv and see if they have a fix.

So I called the Support line for the makers of my Google TV's and reported the problem to them in hopes they can explain the problem to google but since people are still having problems after resetting their tvs to factory defaults I can only assume nothing is being done.

This coupled with black Friday sales going on now I decided to give up on my google TV and bought a Samsung ku6290 4k tv with samsung smart hub since I do like it having apps and my parents have an older model and even though it no longer gets firmware updates due to it's age , the apps are still being updated to this day.

I been wanting a 4k tv for a while and black Friday and this latest problem with google and google TV made me finally pull the trigger on one.

That said I will only have one google tv to play with after this so any answers or solutions to people will probably be from memory or you may see me posting a link to someone who had the same problem and found a solution.

I hate to do this but I will keep the place open as long as I can and remove spam as well but answers and fixes to new problems that pop up may not always get the help you need due to the above.

If you want to see what the new Android TV is all about check out the Android TV community at https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/109694875004529508368

Many old Google TV users ended up going that route when they got frustrated with their Google TV's as well and I am sure they would love to tell you all about it.

I plan on pinning this post and do not be afraid to chime in and please if your having a different problem then the re-scanning of channels after a reset to factory defaults do try to use the search community box under the google tv logo to the left and if you want to see what we classify as spam posts just search the community for the keyword #spam  

Happy Thanksgiving to those that are celebrating it as I know not everyone does.

Peace

+Paul Anderson  Nice of you to stop in - Is this the Google Play app your looking for https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.tvremote&hl=en

Or are you referring to Able Remote for the Google TV and your Phone that need to be loaded each on their own devices and is more robust?

You should see all your google tv apps in your My Apps page at https://play.google.com/apps?hl=en while logged in by the way if you downloaded them using the Play Store.

I bought a kodi box ages ago but did not use it as much as my Roku Stick for HDMI as I tend to watch more tv shows then movies and still have not cut the cord due to others living with me that are not as technical :)

For those that reset their tv's to factory defaults and are stuck at the zip code screen Call your TV Maker using one of these contacts and tell them the channel lineup server is down and google points you to the makers of the device and hopefully the manufacturers of the device can get action better then calls to google can as I just called hisense and told them the problem and mentioned that maybe they can contact someone at google to fix the problem instead of pointing the people to makers of the devices since I assume it's a google server since it affects all tv's and not just one.

+Wyne Bailey Could not find an app by that name when searched and never heard of it until now , is it a phone app as if it works natively on google tvs with no side loading then pass it on as I only restrict phone apps that people share that are native and can not be installed using the google app store and youtube videos and weblinks to boost someones views that does not have anything to do with google tv

Just started 5 minutes ago and the signal is coming in strong on 7570 for me in Ohio.

Seems to be some moments of silence in the broadcast but that is there on purpose so if you don't hear a thing when you tune in keep listening for a bit as it will probably be one of those long pauses

Some of it's in French too but it's also in English due to the subject matter.

I was able to talk to a person at Google the other day and reported the Channel Lineup Server down and that person was very nice and did not know it was down and sent me an email that I just replied to today with the problem with the Channel Lineup Server and how it is affecting us Google TV users so that way she can run it up the chain so to speak to hopefully get a solution for us Google TV users.

Hopefully my reply to them was worded well enough that they will fix it right away but I will report back when they write me with a solution that we can all use.
