GoogleTV seems interesting.

It’s basically just like Sezmi, except it works with DVRs and STBs from any TV provider, not just OTA. Oh, and no monthly fee either (I’m guessing.)

I had Sezmi free for a few months during the LA pilot program and was so unimpressed with the hardware and implementation that I returned the whole kit at the end of the program. I hope Google can get it right.

I’ve never seen a device that wasn’t an A/V receiver or switch that included HDMI passthru ports. In fact I thought that DRM restrictions prevented that from working in most situations…but Logitech’s GoogleTV box includes it and indeed all GoogleTV STBs will.

Coming this Fall!
