I have recently purchased the Sony NSZ-GS7. I have been an android tablet user for years and my boys (8 and 9) have just received their own tablets for Christmas. I was looking for something that was flexible, familiar and easy to learn (sitter friendly). I've toyed around with XMBC and a Boxee, neither gave me what I was looking for. I am a Sony fan so it was an easy decision when this unit was on sale at Futureshop (score for $170). This is my post describing the paths I have taken to mold this little beauty into the best GTV box it can be. Let's lay some ground work. Hardware Sony GTV stb (NSZ-GS7 - Canadian version) Panasonic 42" Plasma (TH-42PZ77U) Denon AV Receiver (AVR-990) Panasonic Blu-ray Player (DMP-BD35) Nintendo Wii no cable or sat box (want to add OTA HD later) DLink Wireless Router (DIR-825) HP Laptop with Windows 8 Desktop with Windows 8 Family Room - 15' x 25' Core Goals Netflix & Youtube streaming Movie, TV, Music streaming from the internet Movie, TV, Music streaming from my desktop anything else is bonus (and boy did I find alot of bonus') ....keep tuned for my second post......"Look and Feel".
