    I tried doing a search but couldn't find the answer. Is there an app that can capture streaming video like what's available for the PC (e.g. WM Recorder)?

    I don't believe there is any (legal) way to record streaming videos on GTV. However there is supposedly a way to download a video file to a USB drive. This was discussed previously in the following thread:

    There is an app called PLAYLATER which you can use it in Google TV to record streaming videos. With this software you can record it legally also as the issue of recording video for your personal use (time shifting or watching when you want) was ruled on by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1984 that ended with the Betamax decision. But the recording must be for personal use. Moreover you can use PLAYLATER software to record videos from YouTube, Netflix, Hulu etc.

    I use PlayLater with a PC, not possible with Google TV as far as I know. You can then use Google TV as a DLNA client and playback video recorded on the PC but without trick play features so I mostly just use the PC to play back recordings although I do use Google TV some. I believe what is being requested is an app to record or download directly using Google TV to internal storage or an attached USB drive.
