My new Chromecast with Google TV just froze and reset itself today. When it rebooted it went to the Android Recovery screen. The remote apparently can't do anything on this screen, so as-is the unit is now bricked and unusable. Tried manually restarting but I keep ending up back at this screen 

Please see attached image.

I'm having the same exact issue.  I have not attempted to factory reset yet but I have no other way to fix.  Remote doesn't work and rebooting doesn't fix.

Its a known bug issue. I contacted support and they said to hold down the button on the back of the Chromecast for 25 seconds then let go. It will do Data Factory Reset. All my data stayed intact but the Tech said that your data may be erased. It fixed my issue. Hope this helps.
