Not to my knowledge, but they would be stupid not to be working on it
IMHO.  It could be used on Roku, Android and Apple right out of the gate.
I have been letting the house use the slim shield remotes for a year or so
amd the search on Android TV that searches my Plex and online content just
makes it so damn easy, it is a tv watching game changer..  Not having to
browse the library via key presses is *very* nice as you probably agree.

If they are not working on it, I would be shocked.  I am sure it would
resuire changing the comms between the remote and hub from RF to BT or IP,
but hell - that cannot be too hard since that protocol is already written
and running in the hub.   It is not a true engineering re-write as I would
call it - more of a shuffle.  Time will tell.
