Most of the time my Sony GoogleTV works just fine...and I really love it. My only (operational) issue is that, from time to time, the volume button stops responding. Sometimes I'll click the button to go +/-...and the volume indicator appears on the screen...but it will not move. If I hit the button either once, or many times, it will take at least several (5+) seconds before it will increment 1 number in either direction. After about 30-60 seconds, it will suddenly begin to respond normally. Since getting this TV, I've had both Charter cable, and Verizon FiOS. In both cases, I have this problem. And, further, I have had the problem with the GoogleTV remote, the FiOS remote, and the Charter remote control. While this is happening...ALL other buttons work fine. I can change the channel, and even Mute the unwanted loud volume while I wait 60 seconds+ for it to begin working again. If I power off the television, unplug it...and wait a minute before powering it back on, I can get a week or two of the problem not recurring. This (in my 20 years of IT) suggests something programmatic, and not something that has to do with conflicting devices. I'm not using any IR blasters...nor am I using anything on the devices other than what has been mentioned here. I have changed the batteries in the remotes during the problem, and not experienced any relief...which I don't expect because all indicators point to the television itself. I've accepted and installed all updates...and even went to this device and checked for available updates, to be sure I have them all. For full disclosure...I do have a Sony GoogleTV Blu-Ray player connected...but that device is turned off, and I'm NOT using that remote unless I'm actually using that device. -- but i do experience this issue with that remote too when I'm watching DVDs.
