Want to control the Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast with Google TV, Nvidia Shield, Xiaomi Mibox, AirTV and more? The Chowmain Android TV driver is designed to control Google Android TV boxes. It is a software only solution so no extra hardware required.
This allows you to navigate the Android operating system and control applications as you would with a normal infra red remote control. No need to root the device and no need to install any additional hardware.
In addition to control there is full keyboard support for search (for apps that support it) with both full text search and direct text entry.
The Driver will also scan your device and provide a list of apps that can be launched directly, no need to use the menu to find apps any more.
This driver requires a 3rd party application called Zank Remote (Amazon App Store/ Google Play Store) be installed and configured on your android device. Just install the app from amazon app store or play store and follow the instructions to configure the Android TV box. We partnered with the developer of Zank to further develop their app to provide the functionality we require for integration. Note a portion of licencing revenue goes towards our partners at Zank to support the Zank app development.
