The elapsed time tracking in the sdremote is just broken. I attach a partial patch to improve it but even this is awful.
I think we should have a simple combo-box / list of pre-canned / selectable times: 5 mins, 15 minutes etc. and (perhaps as an extra option) allow people to select a "Custom" time.
The setting should also be persisted.
The code is in android/sdremote/ variously - with some more code pointers in the patch (although the patch is mostly a throw-away thing).
Would love some input here !
It's also worth noticing that building the androidremote is pretty easy if you have the SDK installed - there is no need to build much of LibreOffice, and you can turn a development iteration around pretty fast; just:
make clean all install # and quickly un-install on the device in parallel
inside android/sdremote :-)

throw-away patch / attempt to cheat the selector into giving an editable selection~ failed
It should also be noted that the 'Next' button in that editable time entry behaves very oddly indeed - something is busted there.
I am starting work on it during this week.
Edittext replaced by AutoComplete - user can type his own value, or choose from predefined value. Choice is made persistent. Elapsed time is now repaired.
I will have to apply styles on predefined values.
I have sent changes for code review.
