    Is there a way to move the Bookmark Icons around? I understand you can edit the Home Menu Listings (on the left), but when I make a Bookmark of a Channel, App or Website they just keep getting added and this further pushes the Main ones (LiveTV, NetFlix) down the list?

    I was hoping to be able to Sort by preference or even change it to List format as only 9 can be seen at a time. Thanks!

    It would be nice if there were better organization tools, but it is doable to re-arrange the bookmarks. What I've been doing is to long click on the bookmark to be changed. That brings up the option to edit. Move the bookmark to the top is the only way to re-oraganize. If you want to display nine bookmarks in a certain order you would move them up to the top in reverse order. The bookmark you want in ninth place would be moved first and the one you want to be at the first position would be moved last. Definitely awkward, but it's what we've got for now.

    Also there is a need for something like bookmark folders. When you start having too many it becomes cluncky

    google bookmarks may be a good solution for web and URL bookmarks but it wont solve the issue with TV and Video related bookmarks like TV channels and applications
    This needs to be improved

    I spent an hour last night trying to edit a bookmarked URL. What I'm trying to do is get a bookmark for "thedailyshow.com/full-episodes". However when you visit that URL, it appends the current show to the URL, for example "thedailyshow.com/full-episodes/mon-august-1-2011-freida-pinto". If I bookmark that, I'll always come back to the old episode, not the latest episode.

    Anybody know how to edit a bookmark URL manually on Google TV?

    This is super-frustrating.

    Just long press on the bookmark, and it will give you an option to edit...

    That allows me to edit the bookmark name, but not the URL...
