    Does anyone think that someone will make a DVR application for the google tv that would essentially record back to an external local storage device?

    Once the SDK is formally released this was something I was oing to look at doing. I don't know if the GTV platforms have enough power to do the encoding to drive DVR functionality for HD content. If it is possible, I'm thinking there will be several different attempts at this.

    Could be cool, plug an external HDD into the TV and use it to program and record. I really can't wait until the platform opens...there are going to be great things on the horizon!!

    Yeah I got it knowing (hoping) that Google TV would be better then the Android phones...I'm waiting to see what the market has to offer. They should have an explosion of apps before they let the public loose on it.

    it is only a matter of time before someone actually does that once the platform becomes more mature ;)

    I would love to see an app that would support tv tuner cards combined with the dvr functionality. Kinda like windows media center.

    I'm going to bet the under on this. The Revue and Sony products don't really have a ton of resources to do encoding, which a DVR would require (either by specialzed chipset or by beefy CPUs). I say this in terms of HD content, not SD. I don't think Google wants to replace the DVR systems out there either.

    Hey guys
    any opinions on the success of the topic considering the Revue sports 1.2GHz CPU and Honeycomb 3.1 with Market and SDK being available?
