    Hello,

    I am a recent purchaser of a Sony NSZ-GS8 and I love the voice remote.

    I was a bit disappointed that the OS was still a flavor of Honeycomb. But the promise of a Jelly Bean update holds me from returning the device seeing when they do release that update I can access more Apps with the box.


    Seriously, why have a product out there that "has the Google Play Store,: but does not have access to connon apps like Tune-In or iHeartRadio?

    Also, the web browser is a bit dodgy seeing that it errors out when you go to Youtube.com and are logged into it.

    YouTube has major issues with the GTV Chrome browser for about 4 months now. IMO the new version of the YouTube web site (when viewed with GTV Chrome browser) is not fully compatible with current GTV hardware. Google has remained silent. Frankly I see little chance of this ever getting fixed:

    There is a way to use the GTV Spotlight versions of iHeart Radio and TuneIn radio with GTV Chrome browser in a such a manner that you can web surf and keep the radio sites playing in the background. This works with any radio web site compatible with GTV Chrome browser - and the procedure is explained in the following thread:

    I did notice that my Youtube App did update today.

    On the Youtube App, it does function better than on the ps3 (also crackle) on GTV. I figured it was the psn causing issues anyways. But what shocks me is that it seems no one but netflix has gotten streaming right. I know netflix maintains it's own network, but the Netflix App on any platform seems to handle speed dips the best.
