    Is it possible to access my media (audio and video) from my home computer on my google TV set top box? I have not purchased a googleTV box yet, but I am planning to. Also, is one box more capable of doing this than another?

    Thanks for the help!

    Depending on your set up and media types they pretty much all can do it, but IMHO the "best" scenario is to install Plex Media Server on your computer then the Plex app for Google tv on your device. Where one device is going to shine over another is going to be based on codecs in your media...see this thread for a compartive chart for apps and capabilites for outside media...

    Each STB has their own set of pro's and cons..

    The other things to consider are your connection options...Do you require an optical output from the Google TV device?
