    Hey - stoked I found this forum. I bought an open-box google tv (box, not integrated tv) and I am totally lost. I want to love it, but I'm really disappointed so far, and I hope it's just my own lack of understanding.

    First: was there supposed to be a paper user guide or owner's manual or something in the box? I got nothing. If so, any ideas how I get one? Anyone got a .pdf? I've found the "help guide" less than helpful unless you already know what you're looking for help on. I need a basic "wtf do I do with this thing" guide.

    Second:Since I never found any kind of set-up info, what is the grey wire with two litttle sensors? Receiver for the remote signal? It looks like the previous owner had them stuck to something, but I cant tell where or which way they're supposed to point.

    I'm hunting around, but can anyone point me to a link for an "idiot's guide to google tv"?

    Thanks very much!!

    Thanks for answering! I have a Sony NSZ-GT1 - haven't had too much time to mess around with it yet. I think it's hooked up right, but I just need some coaching on how to learn how to use this gadget right :) thanks in advance for any recommendations you might have. I'm looking forward to using it!

    Ahh..
    Now we are getting some where..
    The 2 senors are indeed for the remotes..
    Point them toward you..

    Here is a site that can help you out a fair bit:

    Sony eSupport - NSZ-GT1 - Model Home


    I am not certain if your model came with an in depth user guide or not, as I use the Logitech Revue...

    If you have any more questions, fell free to ask..
