    My Vizio Co-Star recognizes my Nexus 7 tablet for bluetooth pairing, but won't connect. I'm looking to use Able Remote on my tablet to enhance my Google TV experience. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Was on the phone with Vizio support multiple times but it seems they are more clueless than me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I believe Able Remote uses wifi to control the Co-Star, not bluetooth.

    I started using Able Remote with my phone, and it uses wifi to work with the Co-Star. I found this out the other night when I had switched the wifi off on my phone for a while, and then tried to use it as a remote a bit later. I got a message stating that I needed to enable wifi.

    You're welcome. I'm pretty much a noob to both the Co-Star and Google TV as well. I've only had both for about a month now, and still learning, sometimes by trial and error:) I'm pretty much just a regular user who likes to poke around and find out all the cool stuff my gadgets can do.
