Making Google TV forget your Netflix account info

I've tried the "official" way.  That's where you go into the application settings for the TV, find Netflix, and select "Clear Data."  It even warns you that your account information will be lost.  And then it does absosmurfly nothing.  Punks.

Here's how to *actually* get your Google TV's Netflix app to forget your login information.
  • Launch the Netflix app.  (Even if it gives you an error about connecting.)
  • Use the navigational arrow buttons in the upper-left region of your remote's face.
  • In sequence, press these arrow buttons : up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, up, up, up, up.
This will either make Chun Lee shoot a big blue fireball that decapitates your enemy, or it will pop the Netflix app into a bit of a debug mode.  Press the down arrow to select the "Deactivate" option and press the Enter button on the remote.  Poof!  The app should restart itself and prompt you again for all your account eenfos as if you never met it.
