    Just bought a google tv (Logitech) , installation went well connected via wifi however it takes forever to run a app. When the apps finally loads it stops intermittently. Very frustrating.
    Could it be my internet connection (AT&T Uverse ) or something wrong with my default setting.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Which app? Not all "apps" are dependent on the internet.

    Pretty much every app I have used so far but specifically PBS kids, CNN, CNBC real time, and Pandora which I cant even get to fully load.

    All of those are internet reliant for content, so the stuttering or stopping is probably due to bandwidth or connection issues. As far as Pandora failing to start at all, I'm not sure. How's your wifi signal and what's your broadband connection?

    Interesting. Let's see... CNBC Real Time and Pandora are local apps which depend on internet access for content. While PBS kids is a gloried bookmark in the Spotlight app which opens their website through Chrome. It sounds like there's an issue with internet connectivity. What sort of results do you get when you use Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test?

    Your right, internet connectivity is a problem. after using speedtest.net the ping/download/upload speeds on the google tv are 264/1.9/0...very poor. I also tested my hardwired PC and it is 35/5.9/0.87, which is close to what att uverse promises me. Also my PC is upstairs while the google tv is downstairs. Moving the pc closer to the google tv is really not an option . Any suggestions on how to improve the strength on the google tv would be great

    I would recommend going with a Home AV PowerPlug Powerline Networking kit from either Logitech or Netgear. This will help you bypass the weakness of wireless networking.
