    VIA

    You can also click the "star" button on the remote to make it a bookmark. Make sure to edit the length of the title so its not too long...

    Netflix..
    1. Delete the premade "Netflix" Shelf..
    2. Create your own so it properly syncs (as some may notice after logging in, your netflix shelf is empty)
    3. Do not try to create a whole shelf.. ex. Every possible Genre, New TV/Movies (it will seriously slow load)
    * Limit to 2 Genres - for Each Shelf

    To get in to full pixel mode try the following -
    Press FN+1 to open up settings
    make sure your on a channel broadcasting in HD
    go to "picture and sound"
    choose "screen adjustments"
    Turn wide mode to full
    Turn Auto wide off
    choose "display Area"
    uncheck Auto setting
    choose "manual setting" and change it to Full Pixel
    So far I was able to do this with my over the air tv tuner while viewing an hd signal and I have it set with my Boxee Box using an HDMI cable.

    P.s. I wrote up these directions for myself as well as others who want to try out full pixel mode and to see if it looks better then the sony google tv with the overscan settings set.
