    Hello everyone! We just recently got a new Sony Blu Ray with Google TV and are liking it a lot. I would like to get the “whole house” working together and get things all working in unison an welcome any advice you all can give.
    Here’s some of the pieces we have and some ideas and questions that have run thru my head.

    !. Hardware available
    1. Sony NSZ-GT1 Wi-Fi-Enabled 1080p Blu-ray Disc Player Featuring Google TV
    2. 2 Terabyte Hard Disk
    3. Wifi Connection
    4. Lenovo Ideapad 06517HU Tablet Netbook (1.6 GHz,@250 GB HD, Win 7)
    5. Kindle Fire
    6. iPad 2
    7. 2 Laptops (One mine and one wife’s)
    8. Xbox 360 (No Xbox Live)
    9. 2 TVs (40 inch in main room and 20 inch in bedroom)
    10. Tivo connection on TV in bedroom
    I’m thinking of putting IIS on the tablet netbook and thereby be able to run some local webservices and sites. I know programming and can program in C# and ASP and javascript and the like and am starting to work on teaching myself and so would lean toward open source stuff.

    Would MediaPortal and/or Plex work well with GoogleTV?

    I look forward to some advice and good discussion from my co-members


    Thanks,
    ChrisAndJan

    For the love of Mike; do not cross post. This forum is small and doesn't have that much activity, so cross posting is very unnecessary.

    Please pick one of your threads to keep and delete the other.

    Until then, I'm not adding to your discussion.

    Unfortunately, upon clicking "Edit Post" all I receive as options are Save, Go Advanced, and Cancel

    Strange. I just created a new account, posted a message in this thread, and then deleted it. I wonder what's wrong with your account. I've reported the issue for a moderator to look into it. Anyways, one of the moderators already deleted your other thread from the member's area. So, I guess it is time to address your post.

    Yes, Plex for Android works well for Google TV according to the http://www.googletvforum.org/forum/google-tv-development-discussion/3658-hangout-rishi-chandra.html

    I'm not sure about MediaPortal though. I'm not exactly sure how you would propose to use it with Google TV.

    Yes I'm not sure why it wouldn't delete for me. I tried it over and over.
    So Plex works huh? Cool good to know.
    As far as MediaPortal I was more thinking of parcelling out it's pieces like it's DB and the PVR functionality and such. And then interfacing to that thru a WCF web service and be able to stream from my Terabyte drive and such. And then by doing that it would not only be able to stream to the TV (thru Google TV) but also the laptops and Kindle Fire and iPad and such.

    Thanks again for the feedback and letting the mod know as far as lack of deletion.
