Thank you for using TV SideView.
Unreliable, takes forever to connect. Awful
If you love the words, "An error occurred with the application," this is the app for you. I hate that Sony blu Ray remote switched from the old Media Remote app to TV Sideview. Sideview takes forever to load the remote portion of the app and sometimes doesn't work at all. Constantly, it tells me to "turn on the device" when the device is already on. I just want a simple remote solution, and this isn't it. :(
Broken and Useless
Another useless update that does NOT fix any of the hanging issues. Looks like it was just updated to clear out the old unfavorable reviews. Shame.
The latest update was supposed to "improve the operation" of the app but instead has rendered it totally broken. The intermittent hanging and freezing issue of the past releases has now completely broken this app. Utterly useless.
Sony are a hardware company and have no idea how, or the competence, to produce software, and this garbage is a clear example of that incompetence.
This is the last Sony TV I'm ever buying. No wonder other companies are eating their lunch.
Remote app works!
This remote IP app works so much better than. Google TV app it wont connect to my older sony smart tv. But this one hasn't gave me issues connecting to the TV.
