    Hi. My husband and I would like to get a second remote for our google tv so we each have one. It is my understanding that I could not simply purchase another remote as only one will pair with the tv at a time. If this is so, are there any universal remotes that will work with this tv?

    There is an Android app, Able Remote, that allows an android phone to act as a GTV remote. I am not sure if there is one for an iphone or ipad.

    You could get the logitech mini-remote. I have it for Revue and like it a lot. It's nice that it's backlight so you can see in the dark.

    Logitech Revue Mini Controller

    Shop around, you should be able to get it for under $100 (I got mine for $50, but that was a steal).

    According to the logitech forums, it (for most functions) works on your Sony TV. Revue Mini Controller & Keyboard cross-compatibili... - Logitech Forums

    Thank you for the responses. I unfortunately do not have an android phone. So, if I get the Logitech mini, can both remotes be active at the same time? Will I encounter the same problem with only one remote being able to be paired with the tv at any given time? It appears from that thread that it works off a USB port. So I would THINK that would mean there wouldn't be any issues with two remotes being active at the same time. I also read in another thread that there is an issue with USB ports in that the tv recognizes the first thing plugged in.. Does this mean that if I have a USB for the remote plugged in and then later I plug in a USB flash drive with movies that it will not recognize the second usb?

    There IS the "Google TV Remote" for iOS available.
    I didn't know that the Sony remote is "paired" with the set. Is this true?
