With the Remote of this Internet TV Blu-ray player you can Turn on and off, change the station, and volume of your Bravia Television using Bravia sync, or non-Sony via IR control. If your non Sony TV cannot use these functions contact us ( the manufacturer) directly for support.

Question

Is a cable box necessary?

I am subscribed to cable but I do not have the cable box. Can I just connect the Sony Wi-Fi Built-In Blu-ray Disc Player with Google TV to my HDTV in order to watch tv and surf the web, or do I actually need a cable box.

Hook a coax cable from the wall to your TV and have TV complete a channel search. You should pick up some local channels, if anything. Google TV won't help out very much with that, as there is no coax connection, available.

Google TV will allow you to surf the web, but some sites are blocked. I like Netflix and watch most shows, there.

The NSZGT1 does not have a Television Tuner, what it does is output to your Television via HDMI. Your cable transmission would go from the wall or cable box directly to the TV. you can however command your TV from the NSZGT1 and switch from TV, to the internet at the touch of a button, or both at the same time!

Yes. As long as you have the internet connection speed you need. I personally have 5mbps (don't ask what that stands for but 10 is the highest) and I get great video streaming through my wi-fi.

Question

Before this week's heralded, major Google TV software update, the software on this Sony device and the Logitech Revue was almost exactly the same.

One major difference on this device is the beautiful integration of the Blu-Ray/DVD disc player. For example:

When using a Logitech Revue, if you have a Blu Ray or DVD player, you have to set down the Logitech remote, pick up your TV's remote, switch input to your Blu-Ray/DVD player, set down your TV remote, pick up your Blu Ray/DVD player's remote, watch the movie, pick up your TV's remote, switch back to Google TV as the input, set down your TV's remote, pick up your Logitech remote, and go back to using Google TV.

With this Sony device, you simply insert a disc into the player and it automatically switches over to playing the disc. To return to Google TV or regular TV, just use the "Home" button on the Sony remote. I'm really happy to have been able to put *all* my other remotes away and just use this one very functional all-in-one remote.

Since the major Google TV software update, only Sony devices have it so far. Google says the Logitech update is coming "soon". So, for this current, hopefully brief moment in time, the Sony device has much more advanced software than the Logitech Revue.

Google TV delivers a new experience by bringing the TV and internet together. Using your existing cable or satellite service and at no additional cost, Google TV gives you access to more entertainment options and simplifies the process of finding what you’re looking. Plus, you can enjoy both TV and web content at the same time, on the same screen. To see more cool features of the Internet Television, please visit Sony’s eSupport website.

Question

How many HDMI cable do you need to have this player and tv working together?

If there is 1 HDMI input and 1 HDMI Output on the bd player that means 1 HDMI cable from cable/sat to input of bd player and 1 HDMI coming out from output of bd player to tv, is that right? so you need 2 HDMI cables.

Just the one is necessary to your television. If you have a Set Top, or Cable Box then that device will also require a cable, If you already possess an HDMI cable for your set top Box to your current TV then no additional cables will be necessary for purchase as one is included with the GoogleTV Blu-ray player.
