    Will Google TV support using a proxy server? I ask this for two reasons. First I want to add Logitech Revues to a couple TVs we have in our conference rooms and internet access in the whole building is proxied. Authentication is not required through the proxy. Second if Google TV does support proxying why cant the proxy server be used to mask its browser and flash identifiers used by the major networks to block content. It would be fairly simple to standup a custom proxy server that would adjust out going requests to hide the key information lets say that Flash passes to the site before opening a show. Any comments?

    No, it can not at this time, however, when the update comes out,
    so I'm told September, it should be able to do that then..

    My company tried to do a very similar thing and it did not work. After getting to 2nd level tech support we were told that the Google TV is not meant for company use through proxy servers. There also doesn't seem to be a way you can access Chrome "Under the Hood" options through the browser on the Google TV.
