    So, sorry, it was early here lol. I'm not too familiar w/the forums so if this needs to be moved a moderator can do that. I do need to know how I can make it possible to watch a DVD (connect the player) to the GTV though, if anyone knows I'd appreciate the help.

    Have you checked the "Playing a disc" link in my first response it goes to Sony's eSupport page (http://helpguide.sony.net/internettv/nsz-gt1/v1/us1/04/04-01.html) regarding, "Playing a disc".

    Okay. Thanks for the link. Even though I have had it for a few months I still don't know all its ins and outs. I usually only watch TV and YouTube videos off of it. I wasn't aware of this aspect.

    You're welcome. Glad to help. The link I pointed you to is an electronic manual of the Sony Google TV Blu-Ray player. You may consider taking the time to understand it better through the documentation offered from that site.

    Yea, since I have a TiVo connected & it works normally I assumed my DVD player would as well. Can it still work? Also, where on the TV is the player located? I can't seem to see where.

    Wait a second. Which Sony Google TV device do you have, the (NSZ-GT1) Blu-Ray player or (NSX-[24|32|40|46]GT1) television? Or is it the Logitech Revue?

    Wait, what?! Is that a typo and you meant the NSZ-GT1 Blu-Ray player? or is one of the following NSX-24GT1, NSX-32GT1, NSX-40GT1, or NSX-46GT1 televisions?

    Okay, then that explains why you don't have the Disc Player app in your particular Google TV device. You would actually use the Input button on your NSG-MR1 remote commander. This will pop-up a dialog box allowing you to choose the correct input of television which the DVD Player is connected.

    Okay, when I press Input it has Built-In Tuner Video/Component as available to use & then HDMI 1, 2, 3, 4 as not accessible. Do I then need to make sure something's connected? This is what I orignally assumed would be the way to play the DVD player.

    You will have to connect the DVD player's audio and video output into the television. I am assuming the component connection is how the Tivo is connected to it. So, that leaves four HDMI inputs available for the DVD Player.
