There is a work around for the channel change I came up with on my android. While viewing the current, open the remote and you will have 3 choices (on left, an icon that represents a joystick, in center the keypad and on the right, "MISC". Open the remote, choose the keypad and select the channel #s you want and hit enter. The remote will disappear. Reopen the remote, choose the joystick and hit OK [bottom left]. Wait a few seconds and the channel will change.
