    I bought a 40" Sony Google TV for the bedroom, and now we're going to have to order a second Dish Network receiver (primary one is in the living room).

    I have a setup question... from looking at the Dish Network site, it looks like you can connect the Logitech Revue to the Dish receiver via Ethernet (in addition to HDMI) to share the wireless internet connection from the Review to the receiver. See this article for more info.
    My question is: does this type of connection also work for the Sony Google TVs?

    Since the DVRs don't have built-in wireless, I'd love it if the Sony Google TV can also share its internet connection with the receiver.

    Thanks for any help

    Yes, the Sony TV does support this mode. You can connect the Ethernet port on the Sony TV to the Ethernet port on the Dish Networks DVR with a single cable (no need for an Ethernet switch). Some Dish Networks DVRs don't work -- I have a 722k which works fine.

    If you do attach a small Ethernet switch or hub to the Sony Ethernet port, you can also add other devices: I've used a Samsung blu-ray player and a Wii in this way.
