    Hello,

    I have searched and can't find a way to do this, so I am not even sure if it is possible.

    I have the Sony 40" Google TV and want to connect a Sony Blu-ray player to it. I will connect with an HDMI cable.

    What I can't seem to find is any information on how to control the Blu-ray player with the Google TV remote.

    Can the Google TV Remote control a Blu-ray player? If so, how do I set it up? I looked through all the "settings" and did not find any place to set up the remote for anything other than an AV receiver.

    Thanks
    :)

    Hey I have a 40" GTV and it came with two IR blasters I have one pointed at my Comcast cable box , and one pointed at my RCA DVD player. You will need to go into the Settings-AV Receiver-Control with IR Blaster, check the box, then pick Manufacture and the right code. I had to go through all the codes before I found the right one for my RCA player.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the info on the IR blasters and where to set it up. I had assumed that the AV Receiver setup was only for the AV receiver - I probably would not have looked there.

    However - I just connected the DVD player to the TV and the remote is working perfectly without the IR blasters even hooked up. The remote even works with the DVD player in a closed off cabinet.

    I can only assume that the Google TV is using the HDMI cable to pass control signals to the DVD player. I had heard this was possible but never actually had any components that it worked with.

    So -- I am pretty happy - no extra cables - don't need the DVD remote - and everything seems to work great.

    The more I used my Google TV the more I love it :)
