    Has this box got a voice search function ? I have seen a youtube video where a dedicated voice button is clearly visable on remote. However my remote does not have that button. Maybe there is another way such as through a android phone? Any advice would be appreciated.

    If there is no microphone on the remote, I don't see any way for the remote to be used with voice search. An optional remote at extra cost with microphone may be available at some point. An app for a smart phone or tablet with microphone would be a possibility but I don't know if that exists yet. Supposedly 2013 is the Google TV year for voice search and other requested features but I don't know anything about the timing. The Sony NSZ-GP9 is supposed to include remote with microphone, it isn't available yet in the US, but I would expect the remote would work with the NSZ-GS7. Also the Hisense Pulse supposedly includes remote with microphone.

    Google mentioned that the plan for second generation GTV devices (that don't have a microphone) will be an app to allow voice search with mobile phone. The app hasn't rolled out yet.

    So if voice search is a priority it's a wait and see thing for new buyers or the Pulse is a a shoe in for those who just can't wait for other options! Personally, I am waiting to see if the PrimeTime App ever works outside of the USA before upgrading my Revue.

    You can download a Google TV remote control app from the Chrome web store on your laptop, it has a microphone buttom on the screen you can use it as a voice search, it is very good I tried it
