    I am having a heck of a time trying to shop for a Google TV. How do I go about finding where to find one?

    Also, is 46" the largest size available?

    Yes, 46" is the largest Sony Internet TV with Google TV built-in. However, I personally think you're better off getting a Sony NSZ-GT1 Blu-Ray Player or the Logitech Revue to enhance your current or new television. If you need a new television and want Google TV, then make an ancillary purchase with your television. That way, you still can take advantage of of some of the more advance technologies, like 3D, Lag Free Gaming, and Frame Interpolation without having to sacrifice the limited selection in Google TV's current offerings.

    Well, "lag free" maybe an oversell. Perhaps "reduced lag" might be more appropriate. The idea is that the LCD displays have a certain degree of signal lag inherit to the display processing. This lag is exacerbated with the post processing that many LCD manufacturers incorporate to promote speeds past 60hz and advance display filtering. So, far all of the Sony Internet TVs are plagued with this problem, and without the availability of a "Game Mode" or "Game Port" there is no capacity to avoid it.

    The problem with most games developed for Android is that rely on the NDK for the ARM processors. There couldn't be any "work arounds" in this case because Google TV uses an Intel CE4100 series processor and the native binaries for ARM are incompatible. Besides, Google decided to not include NDK compatibility with Google TV, so they can't just recompile their apps with the x86 NDK. The individual developer would need to recreate a Google TV compatible app in order for you to play it on the platform.

    So it is ALL of the LCD televisions that have this problem?

    What about LED?

    Thanks for the knowledge Eferz!

    Yes, but not all LCD televisions are as severe as another. Most people can put up with a slight degree of lag.

    I don't believe LED televisions exists the way that you're thinking of them. The LED technology in televisions today are used as a replacement for the florescent back lighting for the LCDs. Depending on how they're used it can either reduce the thickness of the television or allows the localization of light to vary, allowing brighter display with better contrast levels. It has nothing to do with signal processing.

    You're welcome. Glad to help.
