    Just noticed my Sony Google TV updated to release 11. Still on Firmware 3.2. Though now the model # is now listed as NSZ-GS7/GS8. At a quick glance in noticed the HBO GO icon has been removed. Anyone know what else has been changed, or updated?

    I got the latest YouTube app included, as I was on the older release due to it's better stability. The new one seems better so far in this release.

    Thanks for the heads up. I was still on release 10 so I just forced the update and am getting release 11 now.

    I noticed that the youtube app is now working, it use to give me error message since the rel10 update.

    The only description it gives is "The performance and the stability are improved" Youtube app seems to be the same I had with release 10 and that worked for me, every once in a while I'd get an error message though. I was hoping it updated Netflix so we could use profiles like on our Apple TV upstairs which is nice but it didn't. It did make me relog into Netflix though, which I haven't had to do in a very long time. Noticed HBO Go is gone but that seems to be the only difference besides it being a little quicker but that may be because of it being rebooted.

    I just got this update. The "System Update" message and click to update is right on screen, so you can't hardly miss it.

    As mentioned, in GoogleTV "settings">"about"> reads: "Firmware 3.2, and Build "REL 11."

    The YouTube site and G--Mail "standard" version still don't work; speed test shows my normal average mbps.

    It was a five minute download for the "System Update," but I can't find anything that's been visibly updated, or any info on what the "REL 11" is all about.

    This is a security update as well as anything else.
    The signature bugs are closed now, so root is no longer available through the impactor 0.9.12 edition as security holes are closed now.

    New widgets for home screen I think. Flixster and Google Play.
    Also notification box shows network icon and sound icon. Again not totally sure if these were there before.

    Build number shows date. Previous build numbers made no sense to me.

    Was interesting that that Netflix forced a re-login. I too was really hoping to see Netflix user profiles.

    I was also hoping to get Jellybean by end of 3rd quarter (end of September), but I doubt it now. It is too soon after this release. Unless this release was necessary to prep things for Jellybean.

    Since updating to REL11 has anyone else been getting error messages when trying to play Netflix videos?

    curious question. When you use Netflix, and you watch a 1 hour movie. How much of one's download capacity does it suck from your monthly max?

    You can probably find a more exact number, but it depends on what quality level you're achieving. At 5Mbits/sec, you're talking 2.25 GBytes per hour.

    5/8*60*60 = 2250

    it might be better to use the ISP average, since no one is delivering 5Mbit nowadays from Netflix. see more info on this topic here for USA
