    Any pointers as to the best Free TV & movie sites besides Popcornflix, Crackle, SnapFilms? I went through a very long list of them yesterday, over a hundred, and I'm just wondering what you might recommend. I've got these set as bookmarks on the co-star; and these these seem to use many of the same sites I went through yesterday (site of sites).
    1. Most popular live TV Channels for free | TvTube - Watch live TV channels online on the Internet for free
    2. Google TV online content
    3. GTV Content - Symbaloo
    4. http://projectfree.tv

    I'm also wondering if I can put an html file in the download folder and run it as the browser start page (speed dial, page of links/bookmarks)? Of coarse, I could always stash it on the web.

    Are you guys aware that ES file Explorer can browse/share home network shared folders? I stumbled across this by accident a few days ago (I had no idea). Top left screen, change "Local" to "LAN" and then click "options" and click "new" and click "scan" to find network computers and folders.

    Regards...

    If you have a PC that runs all the time (or at least on while you watch TV) you should look into PlayOn and Plex. Both are must have apps for GTV. Run the server pn your PC and the client on your Co-Star. Life is good content is incredible.

    Thanks MrSpock. I had never realized that the sites I mentioned above came from members here.
    Good work.

    @DeadRinger,
    What are the advantages of running PlayOn & Plex? Is this not just a duplicate of what I already
    have with Win7 DLNA UPnP? I've been considering re-installing apache, but these may be do
    the same thing. Can another computer on the LAN access Playon & Plex through the browser
    (//localhost)? Please clue me in?
    Thanks...
