I have an Atv2 and a ps3 right now to stream media. Was streaming a ripped Sony movie today to my ps3 and got a Cinavia water mark so I had to break out my Atv to play the movie. I don't want to have to move my gear around the house all the time if there is a streaming issue. I saw that there is a Sony bluray google tv player and wonder if it is Cinavia protected on this device and if any of you have any opinions of it since Honeycomb released on it. I am able to pick one up for 129 bucks so that is why I am considering the option.

UPDATE: There is a new GoogleTV app called AirTight... it lets you Airplay onto your GoogleTV! I've confirmed there is no Cinavia on any GoogleTV devices too by the way!

Nobody owns the Sony Google TV/ bluray player?

I would be interested to know as well. I know that Roku so far does not, But I do know that Cinavia is required to have a Blu Ray license on new players. So I would bet that it has this unwanted function. I am wondering if a unit like the Logitech Revue is obscured or not.

I just picked up a Logitech Revue from Amazon.com for 80 bucks... along with the Airtight App you're going to have about 75% of the functionality of an AppleTV (missing music streaming and screen mirroring... for now) and MORE due to GoogleTV's own features!
