    "Access and control your UPnP servers and renderers from your TV! Finally, a simple way to use your existing UPnP™ software and devices from your Google TV. Introducing PlugPlayer, an application to stream from UPnP™ media servers or control UPnP™ media renderers - all from your TV


    - Stream Music*, Video*, or Images* from a Media Server* to your Google TV
    Already have a media server running on your home computer or server? With PlugPlayer you can access music, videos, and images from your media server and listen to it on your Google TV. You can use the built-in player, or choose your favorite external application.


    - Control PlugPlayer from a phone or tablet
    It's can be challenging to build a playlist from across the room using a keyboard. With PlugPlayer, you can use PlugPlayer running on your Android Phone, iPhone, or iPad to remotely control PlugPlayer on your Google TV.


    - Control a Media Renderer* from your Google TV
    Already have a media renderer hooked up to your stereo? No need to fumble around looking for the right remote. With PlugPlayer you can control your media renderer using your Google TV, creating a playlist from media on your media server.


    - Push media from your Google TV
    Use PlugPlayer to push media from the built-in server, or from external servers, to Media Renderers in your home.


    -Stream from "the cloud"
    PlugPlayer has built-in support for cloud-based media services such as CloudUPnP and mp3tunes.


    - No Additional Software or Configuration Required
    Other solutions require proprietary software on your home computer, but PlugPlayer uses the media server you already have. Plus, PlugPlayer automatically discovers devices on your network without the need for manual configuration or settings.


    - Advanced Features
    Of course, should your device not be discoverable due to your network circumstances, there is also a way to manually add a device. With PlugPlayer's advanced device configuration, you can stream music and video from remote servers.

    I read about it and don't believe it is worth $5 to me but I will wait and see if others can show it has some value.

    Interesting. Is it compatible with both the Revue and Sony devices (that have the 3.2 update)?

    Update: Make sure you go to the special PlugPlayer version for Google TV. On the Google Play Store it says the GTV version is compatible with my Logitech Revue:

    (I can't specifically comment on the value of this app - whether it's good or bad. My only internet device is the Revue - so I personally have no need for it. Just reporting on the news article for those that might be interested.....)
