How many of you guys still use your Google TVs on a daily basis? Just curious.

Have you been getting the following messages after a factory reset?

"Error retrieving information from server. [RPC:S-5:XXXXXXXXX]"

"Google Talkback Authentication Error"​

Authentication is blocked because google talk is no longer used.

Below is a fix for this issue, should work on any Google TV box running Android 3.2 Honeycomb (API 13).

You need to update these apps by an alternative method to get things going again.
1.     Google Play Services 6.1.07 (1443915-038) APK
2.     Google Play Store 4.8.20 APK
(Note: There are new versions of these apps but these will work on your google TV device.  Newer versions may cause problems or not work at all.)
 
Open Chrome on your Google TV device and search for these APK files.


Steps:
1.     Go to Settings > Manage Applications > Check "Allow Unknown Sources"
2.     Download APKs using chrome Open chrome and search for above APK files to download.  (If your download is working you will see a message “Download Started”.  Chrome is slow, so this may take a few seconds.)
3.     Install APKs (Press Home Key, click on All Apps, Highlight and click on Downloads, click on first APK file 6.1.07,this should bring up a pop up screen, choose Package Installer and file should be installed. Repeat for 2nd APK file.}
4.     Remove your Google account from Device (Settings, Accounts & sync, scroll to manage accounts, click on account name, select, remove account)
5.     Reboot (Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete key simultaneously)
6.     Go to the play store and Sign-In
This should fix problems and allow other apps to update.
If you use ES File Explorer you cannot download the version in the Play Store as it is not compatible.  If you want it you must download an APK file of a version that will work per and install per the instruction above.  A version that works is: ES File Explorer 3.2.5.5 APK
Go back an uncheck “Allow Unknown Sources” per instruction 1 above when you are finished.

Do you get messages telling you your password is wrong even when it is right. You simply have to access the email and "allow less secure devices"

Then after you successfully log-in to your device, you will find that you will not be able to download any apps.

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!

Check this out - On 5/22/16 I saw these two Google TV boxes are on a clearance rack at Walmart for $50. This Walmart opened after Google TV was abandoned 😶😆😶

I think Google TV's would have been a better hit if they had learned to update it more often and not had slow updates like they did as that tended to be most peoples complaints

+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

For the past few hours the Youtube leanbacklite web app is not working with my Logitech Revue. I can load the app itself and browse around the app - but whenever I try to play a video it never loads. It says "loading" but the screen goes dark and it never plays. Is anyone else having the same problem on your Google TV device? Here's the link to the app:

I use Logitech Revue for Google TV to access Netflix at home. Recently I've been getting a message "Insufficient Storage Available" then lost signal in the middle of movie watching. I reboot Logitech and it'll go a short while longer then I get the same message again. Is there a way to update Logitech or could this be a Netflix problem? I'm about to cancel Netflix since my Logitech Revue is my only access to Netflix.

Google has stopped selling the Nexus Player through the Google Store… which shouldn’t be all that surprising since it’s been more than a year and a half since the Android TV box first went on sale. But what is a little surprising is that Google seems to be pulling the plug on the Nexus Player without …

Looks like the reality of Google TV powered devices being updated to Android TV is a reality. Although the audience for these must be limited in this community I am thinking.
