    I am very interested in the new Sony NSZ-GS7, but before i place my order I would like to be fully sure if this new google tv unit now supports NTFS Read/write, for external USB Storage and hard drives?

    I just checked the specs for the NEW NSZ-GS7 box on the SONY site and it clearly states ntfs support:


    Flash Memory (FAT32) : Yes (Read/Write)
    Flash Memory (NTFS) : Yes (Read)
    HDD (FAT32) : Yes (Read/Write)
    HDD (NTFS) : Yes (Read)
    Supported File System : FAT32/NTFS

    The specs says that it does but neither of the 2 I got from google I/O support it or atleast not 500gb to 1tb USB powered hard drives. But the firmware on the two I have are still pre release firmware. And keep apps and features are blocked like Sonys media player it says "coming soon" so I assume that app will be the app that will read nfts file system but as of now my boxes don't recognize any of my external hdd

    Thanks caines for your fast reply and info about the NTFS file support!

    So, we will have to wait for the final firmware, to see if the new Sony NSZ-GS7 Google tv unit now recognize NTFS external hdd?

    Btw, the Specs shown "NTFS" as "Read" only.

    So far, I've played video & music (read) files from two usb flash drives formatted in NTFS & FAT32 (connected to Sony gtv) via "Google music" app & "aAia player" app w/o issues.

    I reformatted my 500gb portable hard drive USB powered to fat32 when I plugged it into my Sony gtv you could hear the hard drive struggling to spin and making noise but it was still not recognized by the box...
