I am also able to stream local media from my NAS drive.
The best part is the way it overlays over TIVO and allows me to control the TIVO from its remote. It does have Amazon instant video, Youtube, VUDU and Google Play. So don't be dissuaded when you read articles like google TV is dead, etc. It might be, but it works for me in its present form. It probably sucks for those who bought it for $299 though.
I know it completely sucks that these companies don't play well with each other at the expense of the consumers. Good luck in your findings.
