Anyone able to cast youtube videos anymore? My phone and computer no longer give me the option to do this. Is this because of thew new youtube app? Any fix for this? Thanks.

+eswarraop From what i understand it isn't an app as much as it is a pointer to the youtube leanback website. Can you confirm whether or not what you are seeing is or isn't just a chrome link?

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)

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.

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 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

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

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.
