Tried all solutions listed in forum. Chromecast Remote with voice begins pairing, MAC address is found, but the search never completes. Buttons for TV control work (volume, source, power on non-smart Samsung) but remote cannot control Google TV.
As we got our resolution here, I'm going to mark this thread as resolved. I'll be locking this thread if we won't hear back from you in 24 hrs. Should that happen, feel free to create a new one if you have more questions or have other concerns in the future.
