How is it that Netgear can continue to sell the NeoTV Prime when they know full well the software for it has been abandoned for quite some time now, and compatible apps will continue to be fewer and fewer in number?   I could see some suppliers trying to sell off old stock on closeout, but for Netgear to continue a known abandoned platform smacks of severely blatant Fraud.  It's like selling a new computer with Windows95.  But look to the Netgear website, and there's a big blazing page trying what they're trying to pass of as a viable product.

+James LaBarre their website is in dire need of an update for this section. If there is no longer support they should just remove it entirely. I might still grab one off eBay though for $49 bucks. Does voice search through the remote app work on this thing?

Maybe one of you techies can answer my 2 questions.  Been using NeoTV Prime for about 5 weeks now.

first - got up this morning and couldn't access live TV (Xfinity X1) - The VT100 box WAS NOT powered on.  I started to use the HDMI pass through because my connection to the cable service would occasionally become unresponsive.  The TV showed a green color and the picture would be frozen.  Resetting everything would clear the problem for a week or so.  This morning (before my tea) the problem was back and I couldn't get my cable picture and it would not reset - even unplugging the cable box power didn't work.....  so I moved the VT 100 to its own HDMI input and plugged the cable service into its own input.   This means I can't use the live tv option on the VT100 and must manually switch the live input on the TV......an annoyance but will do it if I can get relatively trouble free use.  My question is: Is this a known problem?  Maybe to do with handshaking or such?

Second question is: When I stream Netflix, sometimes the show is interrupted with a "loading" message......sometimes two or three times in a one hour show.  I know there is about 2 G of memory on the VT100 and I am using high speed internet - about 58M connection.  Is this normal?

Some boxes have problems with google tv boxes - Not sure if yours is one of them but it does sound like it or it's the hdmi cord.

As for the netflix problem you could probably solve that problem with a wired connection if your using wireless.

Some boxes tend to broadcast and receive wifi to send information back and forth to your cable provider.

Some people have had wifi problems with youtube buffering and other slowdowns from the cable boxes that do this until they move the google tv box away from the cable box when using wifi.  

Not sure if that is your problem but you could try it if your google tv box is sitting right on top or near your cable box.

Hi,
Reboot recovery over adb / romtoolboxpro if you"re rooted, than do a restore.

Use Usb keyboard to navigate in restore mode.

I was able to use with success adbFire to connect, 
reboot recovery, fire an upgrade / downgrade.
Here are some files name, Google is your friend.

I receive as loud distorted/buzzing noise on all movies I playback when I press Rewind, F-Forward or Pause on movies I playback from the cable provider (Optimum Cable, Samsung 30932 Box). It appears that the box captures the sound that is playing at the time when Pause, FF, Rewind is pressed. Sometime there is no sound if I do it at the time there is silence in the move. It’s almost like someone (coders for the flashcode) forgot to mute the sound when it executes the Pause, FF, Rewind function. It a really annoying sound.  Anyone else had this or similar issue?

My NeoTV Prime (GTV100) is successfully connected to my  internal wifi network. I have also successfully connected WD-External connect USB 2 hard drive and can view movies  via my NeoTV I want to view theses movies but  I can't see my NeoTV from any of my other computers OR my Samsung Smart-TV OR my daughter Apple-TV box which are all connected to the same WiFi network. Can anyone help? From what I have read Avia is licensed and used as part of this product (for DNLA sharing I think?) I've read everything I can find and  I can't find any documentation to achieve my goal.

I would highly suggest a DLNA server for the best experience. Plex or PlayOn will be great option.

Just picked up a Netgear  GTV100 to replace a Logitech Revue. Does anybody know what button you can press when watching Netflix to show the current video quality and audio information (stereo, 5.1 etc.)  Thanks

Actually I was hoping there would be a function like on the PS3 and Sony BD players that show the current status of the video being played like this

This provides an idea of how well the current stream is playing

I've been having lots of problems with the iOS version of the Google Remote app.  It routinely gets stuck on the pairing step.  It happens with iPhone 5 and iPad.... and with all GTV devices I have Netgear, Revue, Original Sony, Asus.  I just don't use it anymore.  I use Chromemote from my Mac and Able Remote from old Android Phones and the Netgear or Logitech Keyboards.

Would anyone give me some explanations. I really want to buy the NeoTV prime with Google TV, but some questions have arisen. First, it can be upgraded to the new versions of android like kitkat, or if not, by which it can be upgraded? It is multi language, for example, Portuguese of Brazil? And lastly, what is the processor it? Dua core, quad core?

Thanks, I await answers to efeturar purchase.

Meanwhile Netgear has no problem continuing to sell it on their website, knowing full well it is obsolete and unupgradable technology.  The box really needs a replacement firmware for it.  Otherwise I might ship it back to Netgear personally addressed to the CEO with a suggestion of where he/she could stick it, without lubricant.

Hey guys. I have the Net Gear Google TV I got at Target a few months ago and love it. I have a higher end home Net Gear dual band router as well. This set up is hooked up to my 40 inch + "barely" smart Sharp TV. It as well is less than a year old; I need some help because I am on SSDI and am home bound the vast majority of days. Well, my HP laptop died beyond repair a few days ago. It was running Windows 8.1. (The lap top truly isnt part of the question).

The meat and potato's of the issue is: having a Google TV, enough bandwidth to stream full BluRay if needed or wanted too, and a SECOND small 19inch flatscreen (it only is basic HD at 720p I think, great pic and sound though for a tiny TV). SINCE the lap top is no longer in the position to act as a media hub/server, I KNOW I dont need another $100 buck GTV, but with my smartphone beings a Samsung Note 3 (Have the Note 1 as well)... To get the option to streaming the same stuff to the other TV/the 19 inch in bedroom (my apartment isnt bigger then 700 sq ft)... If I got the Google Dongle (the official 35 buck one....I can used my smarrtphone to "navigate" the dongle. Is what I understand; HOWEVER I REALLY want to be able to "mirrior cast" or "mirror stream" so my APPs on my Smartphone can play EX) 48 hrs from the A & E app. I have access to things on my phone that I do not other wise have acess too. 

Sorry this is really long; my illnesses require a lot of rest so being able to get the same options or at least most of the same as I have in livingroom in my bedroom...would be awesome. I KNOW what needs to happen...just cant afford in money and energy buying things and returning them (some you cant past a small window like apps that run around $4.99). So ANY help I am very great full for. Using CNET and Google's info like where you go to buy a OEM Google Product like the dongles. I am aware many other companies offer Dongles. The apple one I understand it accepts mirror cast from Samsung BUT doesnt except Chrome Cast too. Is the answer despite cost, its going to be best to buy one dongle for the Google dongle and another for Mirrior casting (and playing app content from Smartphone directly on my little TV in my bed room)? I have considered using a cheap $50-100 buck Droid computer in the living room as the main "google tv" and the actual GTV in the bedroom.

I appreciate any help. If you decide to email me please put in subject line something like GTV in caps and bold so I dont miss it!!!


Thanks to all,

Best,

Nathan G

You should do a search for Chromecast enabled apps. Chromecast is the $35 dongle you referenced. Use a browser for the search rather than the Play Store app From the list of apps, see whether your viewing needs can be met with the Chromecast. You can also cast some, not all, video from the phone Chrome Browser. It is not screen mirroring but can stream some content. Flash sites do not work.
For actual screen mirroring, Samsung makes a dongle called the All-Share Cast Hub. It is available from online retailers but is considerably more expensive than the Chromecast. Read reviews before purchasing.

+eric d  has the best solution if you don't have what is needed for using playon.

The only other solution is see if the content you want on hulu plus is available on Netflix. You should have access to most tv shows that way, but instead of being able to watch a show when it airs, you will have to wait until the season ends for the shows your in to, and then you can binge watch the whole season to catch up on it.

That is the only other way I know of to keep up with shows if your a cord cutter and still want to watch content and not rely on playon or a roku stick to compliment the google tv.

Some shows may not be on Netflix so you may want to research if the shows you watch are on it before subscribing to it,

I am playing this video from a connected USB drive. The video is playing pixelated, grayed, broken, etc. Sometimes its just the top left part of the screen and somtimes its different parts of the screen. Can someone help me find out what or why this is happening and how to fix this? I have attached a few pics. Thanks :-)

I typically has to do with codec issues. I have always called it pixelation though I am sure there is another name.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Codec

So i was curious how to chromecast from a computer to the Netgear neotv prime w google tv. basically i want whatever website is on my browser on my computer to cast to the tv. Why youre wondering? well i found a website that i can watch any sporting event and i want to be able to port it to the tv without actually using a hdmi cable from the computer to the tv. yeah i know, sounds lazy right? i had the chromecast dongle for a little while but it sucked as the wireless in it is rather weak.

any and all suggestions would be great

Really there was no specific solution. I tried the NeoTV with another TV and it worked perfectly. I did had to change the batteries on the remote control. Then I yried it again on my TV and it worked!

I just recently moved and I'm trying to set my GTV100 up at the new house. However, I can't get the remote control to communicate with the box. When I hit a button on the remote the little blue light comes on but nothing happens on the box's end. How do I get the remote to communicate with the box again?
