    Is there no way I can limit the search to only come up with results that are compatible with my Sony NSZ-GS8???

    Thanks,

    Roy

    I'd like to do the same,Roy.

    I want to restrict my searches to products that are compatible with my Google TV (2011 edition,24") .

    If you access the Play store with the GS8 the only apps displayed, will be compatible apps.

    The problem is that when you search for an app that is incompatible you get a host of similar apps by name or content. This can be confusing as most users will think that the search suggestions were not accurate. So ya keep trying to get that elusive app to show up.

    A better way is go to Google Play Store via Chrome. There you can look up any app you want and it will tell ya which of your devices they are compatible with. As long as your devices, ie., tablets, Chromebooks, Phones, etc., have a Google acct all yer devices will be listed and compatibility and installation info will show up for each device.
