    Has anyone figured out how to get the Android Market to list that your compatible device is a GTV? Yes, you can access the market via the TV itself, but it can annoying to doing any in-depth digging.

    However, if you try to access the market from your PC web browser, it states you have no compatible devices - even if you log in with the same account you provided the TV!

    Has anyone figured out how to get around this, or get it to add the TV as a known valid device?

    Even logging in via the TV and the PC at the same time yielded no results.

    Google TV developers said web download for Google TV is not supported yet. However, should be added soon.

    This needs to be implemented by Google and there are no work-a-rounds. They would have to add your device's fingerprint in the list of devices that can support that method of installation. It has yet to be done for either Logitech or Sony Google TV devices. Besides, even if you were able to use the Android Market website, it would not give you access to anything more than the GTV app would.

    yes - but its a heck of a lot easier to search and filter on the web than on the GTV version!
