    Hi,

    After having read that Google plans to abandon Google TV for Android TV I was wondering if anyone can suggest cost effective (i.e., cheap) hardware add-ons one might use in conjunction with the Sony Google TV to make it comparable to Android TV. I looked at Chromecast but I can't see that this offers benefits other than streaming from a phone/tablet. I'm not dissatisfied with the Sony but would like to keep it cutting edge if possible.

    Thanks in advance!

    Nothing yet, I plan to just continue to use Google TV and if Android TV is released and is a big enough upgrade to the Google TV models I use now, I will decide then what to do. I love Google TV as it is, I don't have a display with Google TV built in but I do have models running the same version of Google TV the Sony displays run.

    UPDATE:

    Thanks, ChrisG8. That seems like a reasonable plan.

    FWIW, I was satisfied with the stock speakers on the NSX-32GT1 until I installed a Sony soundbar with wired subwoofer- BIG improvement. Also, I upgraded the vintage DVD player with the Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray player. I don't buy a lot of Blu-rays but it offers the Amazon app (available through the S5100) that allows HD streaming (SD only on the NSX-32GT1). This coupled with the Sony Media Player app to replace the TV, speakers, and Blu-ray player remotes has improved the overall experience.

    The NSX-32GT1 was, IMHO, way ahead of its time and the bar is set pretty high before I can justify an Android TV.
