Allow me to play the devil's advocate. Please offer me a concise list of services I would be missing out on if I connected the Co-Star box with one HDMI cable to the second HDMI port on my TV, the first port being connected to the xfinity STB directly, i.e., no pass through with the Co-Star? I am asking this in view of the heat concerns about leaving the Co-Star on all the time. Also, I find that most of my reasons for buying GoogleTV and so far my use of it, has been internet content, not the available overlay utility for cable content. Thanks for your insight.
