    this is a netflix tip.. to kinda get around the awfull new app..

    Go to netflix log on to your instant view account.. and book mark that page. use this to access your que and recommended videos.. and when you choose to view one of those you will be presented with the option to use chrome or netflix to view that vid.. choose net flix.. now every time you use that bookmarked netflix page you will be able to open the netflix app by viewing a vid.. its a mush more slick interface and i think the search function is worlds better...


    a second netflix tip.. in TV/Movies app.. point to the movie section.. and choose Free and ALL quality.. same deal here.. it breaks the net flix offering out into a bit more user friendly format... i use this when i dont know what i want to watch... just browse...

    after getting use to these options... im really liking the new format... not happy with the buffering problems with netflix.. but its often fixed by unloading the cpu of open browsers and such.. but net flix still needs a bit of work on their app..


    like my google tv though!

    Tip: If you don't like an app for GTV try using the websight instead and bookmark it to the homepage so it shows up in your app drawer. ie You tube, karaoke Channel with improved functionality which are missing in the apps.

    Tip: If you only like a few of the featured for GTV apps then open them and bookmark them to your homepage as well then hide the featured app altogether within your drawer.

    Tip: You can even rename the bookmarks according to your preferences as you save them.

    Can you elaborate on this a bit further? Currently there are no LG televisions on the market with GTV baked in.

    Reading that Revue tech support brain dump my mom would likely classify it as very complex machinery.

    HELP! I've had GoogleTV for a couple of years. This weekend it will not connect to Google Chrome, Logitech Support, Amazon Video, etc. BUT it connects to CBS, NetFlix, etc. When I try to connect to the others I get a circle that has 2 blue lines that are going in opposite directions. How do I fix this??
