    So GTV allows for a user agent change to the browser, but there are dozens of potential strings to customize it with.

    Has anyone found a string that then permits certain streaming sites (hulu, cbs.com, tv.com, etc) to work? If so, what user agent string did you provide the TV and what sites did you then gain access to?

    Thanks!

    Generic will work for most sites, and you've found the other post where I have posted strings of other platforms. The problem with the sites that go out of their way to block you, like Hulu & CBS is that they use Flash scripts that can't be spoofed.
