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)

This is a problem that exists on up-to-date Android Youtube, but NOT on Google TV with Android 3.2.

With SOME videos, like this film I just rented:

"They Call It Myanmar: Lifting The Curtain"


Trying to play it on my Chromecast from my Samsung tablet, or on my EQUISO TV Stick, I get the error:
"This video can only be played on newer versions of Android or other supported devices"

But on my SONY NSZ-GS7 it plays beautifully.

And no problem on the Web version of Youtube on my Windows PC, with Chrome browser.

Other people have had the same problem with other films.

I searched that error on Youtube Help with no results.

This seems to be related to the parameters (resolution, etc.) and the latest versions (since February 2015) of the Android Youtube app.

Have any of you seen this problem on any of your Youtube platforms?

After 4 months of using the Nexus Player I am moving back to the Logitech Revue. As a streaming device I find that the Revue just works better. 

The Nexus player will not let me constantly stream movies or shows from the Plex server down the hall. 

If any one is looking to make the jump from Google TV to Android TV wait. Maybe the Nvidia Shield will be a suitable replacement.

I have both and haven't had streaming issues with the Nexus Player but much prefer the pass through of the GS7.

I am so over having to connect my laptop to my LG Google tv to watch HBOGO.  When they sold me the tv two years ago it was listed as an app.  I brought it home, it didn't work.  I know it has been a few years, but I am still pissed that I have an "awesome" tv, but that I can't watch HBOGO on it.  Sorry for the vent.

That HBO Go app will only work with GTV devices that have received the Jellybean update.

I have a Sony Bravia  NSX-40GT1. I received a reply from Sony that nothing can be done to upgrade. Stinks.

You can always update a TV, as long as you have an open HDMI port. Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Nexus Player, Roku.

Why aren't any apps compatible with my Google LG tv? Hulu Plus? I don't understand the point of having a smart tv when there are hardly any apps that work?

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

Anyone have any luck getting Yahoo Screen to work on Google TV 3.2 Devices? (EG Sony NSZ-GS7).  In Chrome, the page fails to load correctly, and the APK for yahoo screen has a minimum SDK of android 4.0.

In other news, I have a chromecast, and mirroring from my phone is insanely choppy.  The app doesn't support casting natively.. (yet)

only way I got it working was by adding a roku hdmi stick to the tv - I tried getting the app to work on my hisense vision too but last time I checked it would not play the files

How do I get primetime to show HD channels first in the mini guide?

I did a cache/data clear in an attempt to get the mini guide to show info again, and it didn't take.

Unfortunately now when I browse through the mini guide, It shows regular channels instead of HD toward the front of sections. I think I remember an option for HD preference.

This is for the sony gs8, if it matters.

You can choose HD only in fullscreen then back out to mini. I edited channel list to show HD stations and sd stations with no HD equivalent. Idk about HD first.

First Android TV box with HDMI In. Nice!
Do you miss Google TV's cable and satellite video integration? An upcoming Android TV box could be the first suitable replacement.

My remote for my GS8 is lost. My family relies on this type of remote vs one on a phone or tablet. I have the remote from my GS7 but for some reason it will not pair. Here is what I ave tried. 

1) Press the connect buton on the bottom 
2) On screen prompt to hold Fn and Enter

LED on the remote blinks but never pairs. I hold it until a message comes on the screen saying that pairing failed and it reboots. 

Any ideas?

Apparently we (most of us? some of us? all of us?) are about to get another Thank You from Google for having supported Google TV. Kinda makes me a little less eager to buy an Android TV device.

When I try to view certain shows online, it says I have to update my browser. How do I update Google Chrome on my Sony Bravia?

Which model Google TV do you have. If it is a version 3 device you will not be able to update the browser. You could try to side load a browser like Dolphin and see if that lets you get to the sites you are trying to get to. Leave more detailed info and others will try to help you out.
