Google TV Discussion  - 
 
If you see posts that are spam or replies to posts that are spam just tag them with hashtag spam like this #spam   so it's easier for me or +Matt Lane  to look at and take care of it.

Google TVs are no longer supported by +Google  and this community is run by volunteers and users that want to try and help others.  

If you have a Google TV , please watch what apps you load on it or sideload on to it as many people that own Google TV's have been hit with the FBI Virus.

When your having problems with your Google Tv make sure your routers time and date and time zone are set correctly.  

Also make sure if your using WiFi to connect your Google TV to the net to avoid hard wiring it up using Ethernet cable. Same goes if your using Ethernet cable to connect to make sure you have wireless in your settings turned off.

If your apps are having connection problems try rebooting the router.

If your google tv is near a dish tv or direct tv that sends and receives data through the internet , this can also cause problems with apps connecting to the internet and you may have to move your Google TV away from the cable box or dish box and closer to the router to get the apps working after a router reboot.

YouTube trouble? If your YouTube app is up to date, you wont be able to sling videos to it like in the past.

If your YouTube app still accepts slinging to it or did and no longer works that is due to the original YouTube app that came with your google TV is out of date as Google said that app will no longer work with YouTube after a certain date that has come and gone. 

Before you ask a question , there is a search box with a magnifying glass to the left of the box where you can type a search query in and possibly find the answer to your question if it was talked about already.

Do not be afraid to search the community before you ask a question as many of the problems have been trouble shooted in the past.  

I'll add more to this as I or Matt think about it.

I bought a replacement main board for a Sceptre tv from shopjimmy, and its been working without trouble for a couple years. It was a little bit of work to pullout the old one, but not hard if you're comfortable with using a screwdriver. ;) $70 and an hour, vs. the price of a new tv. Not bad.

Heck, my family is still using a first generation 32 inch Sony Google TV and I am currently listening to Adam Curry and John C. Dvorak podcast on my Hisense GTV 4 as I type this as some of us still find use for them instead of needing a chromecast or moving to an Nvidia Shield.

It's been out for me, about two or three weeks now. Getting used to the cable box guide. Might as well just get rid of the gtv now.

About this community

This community used to be the official Google TV page, however Google has shuttered it's official status along with the GTV platform all together. There is still a very serious group of people using Google TV and as a community we can help each other and keep it alive. Big thanks to Google for allowing us to keep the community in tact.

PlayOn was always very good to me on my GTV devices. I hope they do well with this new service and I will help by supporting their effort.

Shows as compatible with GTV version 4 devices. I will install it to my Hisense but I don't think i have a gamepad paired anymore.
 
Would like to play this on the big screen? I'll email Warner once I try this out. Just wanted to give the game some visibility. The movie seems to be sweet!

+bob z  says it's incompatible with all my Google TV devices when I clicked Install now.

So it will need to be sideloaded if anyone wants it.

I have Google TV on Sony Blueray Player NSZ-GT1. I use Chrome Browser to watch videos from www.einthusan.com. The website (or my Google TV) has updated Adobe Flash Player (refreshed looks). After the update, I'm unable to get the video display. Till a month ago, I was able getting the video and picture quality was good. Any help or pointers will be a great value. Thanks.

+bob z  if it's a tv , its not dead since you can hook stuff up to it and still use it.

If it's a buddy box then depending if it's working or not you may want to look in to something newer

This guy is using the generic video sources with his Raspberry pi 3. The Rp3 also has Bluetooth 4.1 so we probably can use the Neotv prime remote also.

+Andrej tvrdoň I would have to imagine that any additions in this update are already obsolete. Unless Hisense is continuing support for these outside of the US.
