I have an Android TV box and an Android tablet. For me, all Android TV boxes are not ideal due to using apps like Netflix. I have an air mouse, and I don't get on with it.

I am aware I can cast direct from my tablet to the TV. The problem with this is the tablet doing the casting is also the device doing the streaming. This is not what I want.

What I'd love is to use any Android device as the remote control. For example, when I "connect" to the Android TV box, via my phone, my phone shows me the Android TV screen. This means, when I choose to stream a film, even if my phone doesn't have Netflix, it still works as the Android TV does, and all the streaming goes on via the Android TV box.

I guess ultimately I'm describing an remote session which continues even after the session stops.

Is such a thing possible on Android?
