As Sony and Google have stopped the support for Google TV NSZ-GS7/8, I think we better start a petition like the following again:

https://www.change.org/p/sony-please-update-sony-internet-player-nsz-gs7-8-or-unlock-bootloader-and-release-source-code
Lots of people have these devices, with the premise that the entertainment will be unificated, however, this is not so. It was sold with many key features, which are not mentioned could not be used outside from the United States . I live at Mexico, and it's really frustrating to have bought it without even beyond to use functions that exist everywhere; Netflix (which has not been updated for many months ), with only a few providers of pay TV and ...

Email from Amazon:

Hello,

We're writing to let you know that the Amazon Video app will no longer be available on the Google TV platform after September 14, 2015, which includes streaming devices from Sony, LG, Vizio, Hisense, ASUS, Netgear, and Hausbell.

This means you won't be able to stream movies and TV shows directly from the Amazon Video app on your Google TV platform device. As we continually seek to improve our service, this occasionally means we can no longer support certain devices or features.

You can continue to stream Amazon Video on hundreds of other devices, including newer Smart TV and Blu-ray models, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, Roku, game consoles, Android and iOS phones and tablets, and your computer's web browser.

You can learn more about compatible devices and register a new device at:

Sincerely,

Customer Service
Amazon.com

Please note: this e-mail was sent from a notification-only address that cannot accept incoming e-mail. Please do not reply to this message.
HD playback is not available on all devices. For example, some Roku and TiVo devices don't support HD content. The Kindle Fire HD is HD compatible, along with Windows computers that meet the content protection (HDCP) requirements. Please check your device owner's manual for more information ...

I was upset when I first read the e-mail but then I got to thinking about when the last time I even opened app. Turns out, since I got the FTV stick when it first hit, I might have opened the app all of 1 or 2 times. Compared to the FTV Amazon UI the LG's Amazon app UI is pure junk.

Lately Amazon's Prime selection has really declined IMO (there just isn't much there I care to watch). They were on the right track with their Pilot program but it seems to have fizzled out. The prices and availability of Prime qualified merchandise has really gone down (or up in the case of pricing) recently and the Prime music section doesn't really do much for me. If Amazon doesn't step up their streaming service... and quickly, it won't be too much of a loss to drop the service all-together. There's just too much competetion in streaming services for Amazon to be coasting like they seem to be right now

I had to finally update the youtube app for my NSX40GT1, its horrible! SD video, clunky interface. So the last thing that works well is Pandora and a really outdated Netflix app. Is there any way to update these devices? I hate that after 3yrs my TV is totally outdated.

I hear ya....i don't even mind not getting updated as all the apps I need were working fine. But today I received an email saying Amazon Prime won't be supported on GTV, the Youtube app is now clunky and won't cast. All this on my new 2014 tv from LG.

Google has said a lot in the past and never carried through

I remember them making promises with the 1st generation devices too and never carried it to fruition. 

Hence the reason I did not jump on the Android TV bandwagon like everyone else.

PrimeTime stopped working overnight on two separate Sony NSZ-GS7 devices. Anyone else having a problem? "On TV" is completely blank. One empty block is show under "Favorite Channels", when I try to add a channel, nothing happens.

It is working, but I am having some problems with it.

1.) Some channels are missing (ie: NBC Sports)
2.) I can't add channels to "Favorites" by hitting the "+". I have go to a show and hit the options button and then "Save channel _ to favorites"

Not sure it is 100% back.

i've done a factory reset on my Revue and now after setting up my google account after a while it shows that some apps need updating, but everytime i try to updates or even download new stuff (vimu, plex) says that it could not download due to an error (RPC:S-7 AEC-7).
I've tried VPN's (i'm in Brazil), removed my account changed to smartDNS but still nothing works.
Anyone have a clue?

+Rodrigo Lopez sorry it did not work out. With Plex you should be able to just use the latest version of Plex for Android. They stopped supporting the Plex for Google TV version a long time ago.

Has anyone been able to connect a MXIII Android TV box to the remote that came with the Sony GoogleTV NSX40GT1? That would be super helpful!! I've tried to communicate using the HDMI connect and I think the IR blasters are just for audio components?

I have an NSZ-G8. This has been a pattern of disappointment.

I bought a new 65" TV recently. Several Sony Android TV models were in the choice space. I chose a Panasonic with Firefox OS.

Experience with Sony/Google TV on the NSZ-GS8 were a large contributor to my choice.

(I'm not anti-Android. My mobile is a Nexus 5 that replaced a Galaxy Nexus that replaced a Nexus 1. I also have an Xperia Tablet Z. And a whole bunch of other Sony products.)

I know it's August in 2015, but I love my Revue and would like to watch YouTube videos on it. YouTube tells me I need to update but I keep getting server errors on both Google Play Store and Google Play. How can I get around this issue?

+Matthew Drake The Android TV platform is really good. The fact that Chromecast is built is is a major plus. I myself have GTV, Android TV and Chromecast and I still prefer GTV. But it looks like we don't have a lot of more time left.

Been a long time since I was here ;-)
Can anyone help me trace an app? It was a local media playback app for google TV (I remember trying it on my old GS7)- but it allowed random playback, just like a TV channel. Anyone have any idea?
(I must have cleared it off my app history, as I can't find it that way :( )

I installed the new version of Plex for Android on my Google TV and switched it over to the Mobile layout. Surprise! It looks good and it works (mostly) with the D-Pad! Hat Tip to Plex for not leaving GTV in the dust on this one.

Previously, the mobile layout was a nightmare on GTV. If you have a large number of collections, you couldn’t even navigate your way to the settings menu to switch back to the TV layout.

The only problem I’ve experienced is a few incidents of “find the cursor” / “disappearing cursor”.  But overall on GTV, it works better than the “material design” redesign Google did to the App Store.

I'm gonna stick with the mobile layout for a while and see how I like…

Here's the original post...
"Plex for Android has undergone some beautiful changes. Between adopting the Material Design philosophy in our mobile app and adding rich and sexy filtering and sorting to Android TV, your Plex experience just got better. Check the blog for details!"
Don’t stop me, I know what you’re thinking: How could the Android app possibly get any sexier than it already is? It’s like Ryan Gosling suddenly getting a Michelin star, or Brad Pitt being awarded a well-deserved Nobel Prize in foot massage. All completely unrealistic scenarios aside, we’ve been continuing to embrace Android’s gorgeous Material…

This is off topic but +Derek Ross was an original Google TV Ambassador and Moderator for this community so exceptions must be made from time to time. This is one of those times. 
 
One of my close friends of over 15+ years has tragically passed away, leaving a wife and 2 small children behind. These two little boys will never know their father.

As mentioned in a post last week, my friend +Joel Reed was fan of sexy cars, building a successful business tinting and customizing them over the years. Joel loved techy, geeky things too, as he was a fellow Nexus Warrior with his +Nexus 6 and previously ran +CyanogenMod on his +Samsung Mobile USA Galaxy Note. Joel was also a fan of guns and rifles, owing some of the larger assault rifles that I've ever seen. When it came to the stock market or investing, well, that was one of his passions, making money. Joel was my friend, someone who would have done anything for me, someone who was always smiling and laughing, having a great time. But most importantly, Joel loved his two little boys as much as, well, as much as I love my two children, more than words can describe. If you're a parent, you know what I mean.

Even though Joel was a wizard with finances, sadly, he did not have life insurance, always stating that he was self insured with his investments and money saving habits. Which, to a point, that's true. However, once you're no longer around to continue said investing, you're no longer self insured. Besides, life insurance isn't for you, it's for your family, in case something happens to you. It's too late to have this conversation with my friend though. :(

No one likes asking for a hand out, but if you have a few bucks to spare this month, toss them towards the Reed family and their future. If you don't, a +1 and a share of post to spread the word will do.
Dear Friends, On June 22nd, 2015 the Reed Family lost a huge part of their lives; a husband, a best friend, a father, a provider. Help us raise money for Deanne, Ethan and Holden. My name is Ebun Adewumi and I have been friends with Deanne Reed since we were in middle school. Through Deanne I m...
