    After troubleshooting and talking with 3 level of Vizio support, they confirmed that there is an issue blocking the use of non-gmail addresses as a Google Account. This affects those of us with Google Apps for Your Domain accounts.

    They said they are working on the issue and don't have an ETA.

    Just thought I'd post to help anyone in a similar situation.

    Yes, I thought that was strange. I can't even remember my Gmail addy until I go on a Google site that is synced w/my Revue. The Co-Star kept rejecting my msn.com Google acct sign in. It became a war of wills which the Star won by attrition. All the units I've tried out always accepted legitimate Google accts & then converts them to a Gmail Addy.

    I hate Gmail...

    A user on another forum figured out a work around.

    1. log in with a gmail address
    2. open the Play Movies app
    3. click the settings icon in the upper right hand corner
    4. add a new account using the Google Apps address
    5. go back to the main co-star settings -> Application -> accounts and confirm your Google apps address account is there and then delete the gmail address.

    I hope this helps someone until Vizio fixes the software.
