    For the past year my wife and I have been contemplating getting one of the GoogleTV devices, so recently we sold our PS-3 (I never used it, would rather use my XBox360) and bought a Sony NSZ-GT1. Just a little background on my TV experience. I ran XBMC on a soft modded Xbox for many years, going so far to set it up for a couple of friends as well. As the quality of videos has increased and the cost of large hard drives decreased I recently purchased a AppleTV, rooted it, and installed XBMC on it as well. In addition I have a Boxee Box (D-link) in another room of my house that I enjoy. Everything I watch or listen to on these devices are media that I've purchased and then ripped into my preferred formats all saved on a D-Link DNS-323 that I have hacked with Alt-F firmware on it.

    My whole house is wired with Cat-5 ethernet since I prefer to use that instead of wireless for streaming.

    If you want to know more about my setup just ask, I'm more than willing to provide information on how I have things working.

    I've worked for one of the large cable companies for about 15 years and most recently I train technicians how to installations and other things.

    That's a lot of hacking and ripping... pretty cool how Google TV too pretty much takes every thing you have just mentioned and stuck into one box

    I like the idea of cat 5 whole house. Not sure we won't find out that wifi is a health hazard in the future.
