Button Detector impacts Android Live TV

I have one of the Walmart Onn Android dongles with the new Google reference remote. For a while now have been having problems when 'fast' scrolling though the Live TV guide as random left/right actions would be inserted during the scroll. Thought it was just a problem with the Onn box.

But poking around I saw that at some point I had enabled the Channels Button Detector in the channels app when playing with a Sofabaton. Turned it off and all the Live TV reference remote problems went away.
