Channels DVR App - Google TV Issue?

Having a bizarre issue and I'm curious if I'm the only one.

Every so often on my new Chromecast with Google TV, my Channels DVR app (and only this app) will stop working. When you click on the app, it pauses for a second, opens to a blank screen, and does nothing. Eventually, it may kick back out to the main screen. I THOUGHT that clearing the cache was a fix, but it turns out it doesn't always work.

Anybody else having any issues like this? It's driving a family member crazy, and I'm the IT department, so...

You are not alone. I experience this, too.

I think it's a system issue, because when it happens, I also see that the BT connection between my remote and the CCGTV drops.

I've got the Channels app installed onto a thumb drive connected to a hub, so at first I thought this was the issue. However, I have experienced the problem when Channels is installed on the device itself and the hub isn't connected at all.

Glad it's not just me, that means an eventual remedy may be more likely.

Based on what you're saying, and the fact that this seems isolated to Channels, I wonder if maybe there's something specific to Channels that isn't playing nice with Google TV, and therefore may need to be fixed on the Android app codebase by @maddox and co.?

If you can connect to x.x.x.x:57000/log while this is happening and capture the logs that would be helpful.

I'll do my best to get this to you soon.

Hadn't even thought to look at the client logs. Thanks for the pointer. Next time it happens, I take a look. (I think about 1/3 of the time when it's happened I send a crash report from the app.)

It's odd, though. I have 2 CCGTV, and only one has these issues. Of course, it could also be that the one that hasn't shown issues is not used that frequently.

Possibly related, possibly not. Have you had purple screen issues, or other HDMI handshaking-type issues with your Chromecast (maybe when viewing Channels?). I have this issue frequently and I'm trying to isolate and see if these issues are at all related.

No, no other issues. I get an occasional flicker when streaming Netflix and the like, but no other issue.

I believe the early part of this log is when it occurred for today. Apologies if there was a better way to send this. You're of course welcome to delete it if you'd like. Anything immediately jump out as an issue?

EDIT: I can get more of the log (earlier) if needed, in the event you don't see an issue in this portion.

Hmm, all those HDMI available=true available=false usually suggest a bad HDMI cable or connection.

This could also be related. Not something I've encountered before, so I'm guessing its something new in the latest Android TV OS (which could also explain why this is only happening on CCGTV).

That's something to look into. I can try plugging it in to a different HDMI port on the TV. Of course, if the issue is with the connector on the CCGTV, I'm not sure what the solution may be then ...

I've switched ports often with mine, it doesn't seem to be a solution. It's very strange. One the one hand, I DO have other HDMI connection related issues (the purple screen) which would point to CCGTV being at fault, but this specific issue is isolated to the Channels app, which seems to indicate an app-specific issue. It's also entirely possible that both issues exist, but are unrelated.

I thought as much, but it may very well be unrelated to this specific issue. Keep in mind I also have a purple screen issue that probably is HDMI connection related.

UPDATE: I just went through the process of swapping Chromecasts. I moved them between two TVs. The TV that was having this issue is still having this issue. Not the same Chromecast, but the same TV. So counter to what I would have thought, this somehow seems to be happening on a specific TV, which would indicate an HDMI issue, but one that only effects Channels, and only on CCGTV....color me confused.

I thought I'd update this with my resolution: replacing the Sofabaton remote seems to have fixed my issue. Apparently the previous unit was faulty, and it was sending key presses randomly, and this was what was messing with the system. Since getting rid of that remote, I haven't had any problems.
