    The advantage for me is the integration it has with Dish Network. I have the Sony NSZ-GT1 and I love not having to switch between input formats. Especially holds true for my wife.

    Having TV, Streaming devices, and Blu-Ray player all in one is the best thing about it. Also for it telling me where I can watch a certain video that I want to watch. It tells me if its on TV or Netflix or Amazon.

    Only Dish TV integrates with Google TV though. But when I move not sure if I want dish still. Might be to expensive.

    For clarification by "integrates" polardude1983 is refering to DVR search and scheduling functionality(correct me if I am wrong) AFAIK, Dish is the only provider that integrates scheduling within the Primetime app, that is not to say you cannot control cable STB's from other providers, its just not as intuitive.

    No worries, just thought we should make it clear. How is the intergration with Dish? I am a charter customer and while I can control everything its a PITA for scheduling.

    Of course your dish tv receiver should be connected to the net and have hdmi ports for advanced integration as I use dish with basic integration due to having an SD dvr receiver and no internet hookup and its also a PITA for scheduling as well :D With my setup :)
