    I'm new to the forum because I'm thinking about purchasing a costar for my son who is in college. However, he doesn't have a cable box in his dorm room. Will he be able to hook up the costar directly to his TV via hdmi, and then have full access to google tv on the hdmi input? I don't think he is worried about being able to switch between live tv and the apps, he just wants to be able to watch netflix and listen to music, etc.

    That will work fine. Just switch to HDMI input when using Google TV and use the internal TV tuner for whatever TV source is to be used, exactly the same as if there was no Google TV connected. There is no requirement that anything be connected to the Google TV HDMI input.
