    Hi Guys,

    I have just signed up to this forum after reading the odd post here and there since I got my Sony NSZ-GS7 about 6 months go. I am liking the Google TV although it is not the finished product / OS but the potential it has is unreal. I hoping getting help and ideas from users on this forum will help me unlock GTV's potential.

    My fav app so far is GTVBox Video Player. It works well and plays most of the video formats I have chucked its way from my NAS drive.

    Many thanks. Have you got any decent app recommendations to try on my GTV?

    If your nas supports it, I recommend Plex too :) Plex just released a new version of plex media server for synology arm nas's not too long ago which is what I use when the computer is off. It's a lot slower then the pc version but for the most part works for me. Also it does not have transcoding so I have to play most of my stuff with it in direct play mode :p

    I had a look at Plex. I do no think it works with my Western Digital Nas drive. What do Airtight and Hifi Speaker do?

    Airtight is a streams video through AirPlay devices. Hifi speaker streams audio through AirPlay devices. Since I have an iPhone these are perfect for me.

    Many thanks. I have Galaxy Nexus so have not looked at AirPlay stuff. Nice to know it can be used with GTV though.

    There is also able remote for android devices. Able remote is a paid app but it let's you use your android phone to control the gtv box.
