Go to amamzon app settings. Clear cache and Data. Log back in. If this doesn't work repeat the above steps and also uninstall updates.

Yes.  I am able to get into the back end menu.  I found 2 different software updates on other forums as well and tried them via USB, but neither worked.  Any other ideas?  I am about to take it into a repair shop.  I think it is worth saving.

+Norms ki​ if its mainly YouTube the best solution is the uninstall updates on the YouTube app. This has helped a lot of people.

I still use my GS7 as well.  Last I checked (this morning), my youtube app (the older version) is till working ok.  The leanbacklite version still refuses to play in HD.
My question is, is there a 3rd party app, or 3rd party web app that can play youtube videos in HD?  I have tried opening the desktop style youtube.com in chrome, and it works somewhat.  Would just like to have something else that works better, besides just changing HDMI inputs and using my chromecast.

Here is what the new youtube update looks like on my Hisense Vision for those that may not have updated but wanted to see what it looks like.

I was actually disappointed when I saw the phone app was so different than the TV app, I'm probably going to keep both but most likely use the phone app.

So, I finally mustered the courage to root my LG Google TV (with Android 4.2). My favorite thing to geek over right now: successfully installing PlayStation Mobile (sure, support is ending soon, but it's still a full Playstation game architecture running directly on my TV with no external input, etc)

Usually you would come out better buying a new one because buy the time you invest getting a screen replaced out of pocket you'll regret that decision.Hope you had an extended warranty.

My Sony Google TV NGX I believe stopped working the other day: Process Servicer not Responding followed by a Application Server Not Responding.  

I have tried the Control Alt Delete will not bring up anything.  

I got into the a screen like this one by unplugging and holding the power button on the TV, and did #1 then #2 and then a system update still does the same loop as before.

I also need to reconnect my keypad each time

Anyone figured out as yet how to do HbbTV on Google TV?

HbbTV isn't a content provider or service. It is an open set of protocols/specifications that the content industry would need to implement via an app or similar. HbbTV is an association so you might want to check to see if content providers you have access to, might be ready to deliver something. Given that the Google TV platform is no longer supported it might not be available.

Looks like Google killed the youtube app for Google TV yesterday. Apparently they updated the API.

I am slightly miffed that after buying one of these devices (The co-star) I was  left and high and dry and due to broken updates I am left with a device that doesn't even work... Is android tv worth it or am I just going to get screwed again when google decides to stop development on it as well?

+Kris High yeah I prefer to have full control as well. I have GTV, Chromecast and Fire tv all connected to a Vizio smart TV. I see no reason to limit myself in any way.

I bought the Hisense 55H6SG and updated it. After the update it, the remote shake and or cursor would not work when picking or choosing links on the Chrome browser. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

I would guess chome is at fault..try restarting tv or download chome beta and compare. 1.96b latest update..never had a remote update and when battery is low you get annoying popup.

I just bought a Sony NSZ-GS8 after my Logitech Revue had a fan die. So far I like it quite a bit in spite of so much less software being available for it (maybe I'm missing something) but I do have one major problem that I hope someone can help me fix.

I use the Google Primetime app a lot with my DirecTV, Amazon Instant Streaming and Netflix accounts. It all seems to be working fine except when I'm in the Primetime app I can't get the GS8 to switch to a channel for a DirecTV show that is going to be coming on later. In other words, it will switch just fine if it is a show that is currently on, but if it is a show that is coming on in a few minutes to an hour, it will not switch to that station before the show starts.

With my Logitech Revue, it would offer to let me switch after telling me that show wasn't on yet. That way I could use the Primetime app for looking up shows before they were on and recording stuff on my DVR. With the GS8, it is a royal pain because I can't find the station since it doesn't tell me the station number for it.

Any ideas on how to fix?

Thank you!

I have the NSG-ZT1, actually I have two and I love them both. I run my Time Warner Cable box through both and have never had any trouble with either box. Until recently. My DVR TWC box died, they sent me a new box and now I can't "find" a cable service provider to set up my Google TV box. I'll explain a little further. When I try to set up my provider throught the set up menu it does not show anything plugged into the HDMI port, you can also scan manually. The next screen says if you can see a picture (TV) your good to continue. Once I continue it says it can not find a cable provider in my zip code.

The other box works fine and was set up the same way. I love my Google TV, help me get it back. Any suggestions.

+Josh Gerber  when entering your zip code you need to count to 5 or 10 before entering each number of your zip code or else you'll get the problem you describe as it's a known problem due to the servers being really slow for some reason.

You may want to see if that fixes it and if not restore to defaults and try my trick again
