I'm working on an idea for creating some kind of hack for the Google TV tat would allow us to modify the channel list and tv listings that Google TV pulls to the box whenever setting up the device to a Cable or Satellite Provider.
Here's my story, I bought a Sony NSZ-GS7 and was disappointed when I found out that my Cable Provider was not listed in the Providers list based on my zip code. So I cannot get my GTV to pull TV listings or search live TV.
I too want to search for "a movie about a rebellious teen who's living in a town where dancing is illegal" and get live TV shows or movies playing right then and there.
So I need help finding out where Google TV pulls the channel list and tv listings from, and in what kind of format is the data transmitted from the source to the GTV.
I thinking maybe creating a custom app that will be easily configurable to load custom channels and listings from a web service. Also, I could modify a /etc/hosts file and have GTV pull the feed from a different server I control.
Any help would be appreciated.
