    Vizio Co-Star Streaming Player owners will be receiving an update to Google TV 3.0, as well as some additional apps not previously available.
    The new Google TV 3.0 updates will include a Prime Time Mini-Guide (an improved, more visual, programming browser formerly called Movies and TV), Voice Search (a remote app for compatible Android devices that enables voice control of Google TV search functions), and YouTube Pairing (allows you organize YouTube videos on either an Android or iPhone and synch your list with the Vizio Co-Star .....

    Also, you will finally be able to use M-GO button on the Vizio Co-Star remote as that app will become active. M-GO is a new pay-per-view digital video rental service that provides an easy navigation interface (Actually You Can Do This Now, Just Install The M-Go App) ......

    Additional updates include the inclusion of Vudu, as well as a new interface for Amazon Instant Video ......
    These (and more) updates will be available for download in the coming weeks. If you own a Vizio Co-Star, to find out if the updates are available, just go the System Settings Menu and click on System Update ....

    How to fix Able Remote's compatibility issues with VIZIO Co-Star [video]

    by Edgar Cervantes on February 6th, 2013

    Using your Google TV manufacturer's remote can be a pain. Some of these are simply not as great as we would hope they were, and that makes a huge difference in one's experience with a smart TV. This is why I choose to use Able Remote, a great alternative to those bulky, and many times inferior, TV remotes ...

    In my Able Remote review I mention a specific problem this app has with the Vizio Co-Star. More specifically, an issue that any Google TV device without an IR blaster would have. Being one of them, the Vizio Co-Star can not control other devices like the cable box or TV - only the remote can. This makes it harder for the Able Remote app to control said companion devices ....

    There is a way to fix it, though. You can make it so the remote stays active while not in use, then the Co-Star will send Able Remote's commands to the physical remote, which will then send the commands to the cable box, DVR or TV. The remote's power saving mode must be turned off in order to accomplish this, so keep in mind your remote's battery life should be compromised at least a bit ....
    Check out the tutorial video and let us know how this fix works for you! Have you been having issues with Able Remote not being able to control your cable box? If so, we hope you can now enjoy your fully-functional remote alternative .....!

    Again, if other well known Internet streaming media players do NOT install the high end upscale (Pay-Per-View) movie service "Vudu", this may set the Vizio Co-Star apart as the best Internet streaming media player as far as the best media content ...

    Along with several other high end movies services, that were also included in the new upscale v4.6.0 Google TV 3.0 upgrade .....

    Another thing, that's not being mention is the new updated added machine like precision horse power of the new v4.6.0 Vizio Co-Star, compared to the old v3.5.0 Co-Star ...!

    I must admit, one of the sweetest new features of the Vizio Co-Star v4.6.0 Google Tv 3 upscale upgrade is the "Google TV PrimeTime Quick Guide" .... You can scroll the "Quick Guide" across the bottom of your TV screen, even during viewing live TV, yeah sweet ....(l0l):cool:

    On a mission to cut the cord entirely. Still on U3.5, but looking forward to this option to get closer to being rid of Xfinity OnDemand. Prices are comparable on Vudu. Still waiting for something to challenge the up-to-date free library of Xfinity in one app, but this is a great step. And the release dates challenge Blockbuster and the 10 free movies on sign-up is enticing.

    Since the new v4.6.0 upgrade, Tivo Premiere box set up for cord cutters OTA (Broadcast Digital TV Signals) set up has changed. *Good news, you can now add the sub channels to your *Favorites 5.1, 6.1, 7.1 ....ect

    I integrated my Vizio Co-Stars with the Tivo Premiere *(For Cord Cutters Using OTA Digital TV Signals) by using the new v4.6.0 Co-Star update, *(Set Up Your Device)> *( DVR >*(Other Service Provider)> *(Broadcast Digital zip code)> *(Brand, type in Tivo)> *(Model, type in Premiere) and continue following the easy on screen instructions .... As far as the Co-Star remote is concern, it works better than I expected, almost 100% full function ....!

    *(For Cord Cutters Using OTA Digital TV Signals), *they are other ways to do this without using the Tivo Premiere at a very low cost, http://www.amazon.com/Kworld-HDmi-E...0422590&sr=1-1&keywords=ota+tuner+hdmi+output !

    Please Note: When searching for your local channels and you get a error message, just tap on (Back), retry until you get you local channels, (They Will Come In, See Photo Above), this may take several tries, so be patient ....
