    I just got my google tv and like it a lot. However, I remember reading about an option to fling or send something from my phone to my google tv. Example, I am looking at a website or youtube video. I read there was an option to send it to the google tv. However, I can't find anything at all about this. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Fling is not the same thing as Android to Cloud.

    "Fling" is supposed to allow you to "throw" whatever content you have on screen on your android device over to the big screen. i.e. if you are at 2:31 in a YouTube video, you fling and it will queue up the same video at 2:31 on your Google TV.

    Just got my GoogleTV a couple of hours ago and am still digging in, but as far as I can see, fling isn't enabled yet.

    Bring up browser page on Phone>hit Settings>Share Page>Harmony Remote should appear as an option (after installed) select > Webpage. Should now fire up chrome and be showing on TV.. :)

    I see. I only read what I wanted to read apparently. Sounds really cool.

    Wonder if you can create a gesture (maybe in tasker) that could automate those menu steps for you.

    If you figure this out, you should post your results with it. Sounds pretty cool.

    On your Android phone:
    1. Install "Google TV Remote" - run/setup for your TV over the wifi(make sure wifi is on for your phone)
    2. Browse to somewhere online that you want to share
    3. "Click" your general "Menu" button
    4. Select "More"
    5. Select "Share Page"
    6. Select "Google TV Remote"
    (The menu may be different for other versions. I have 2.1 on HTC Eris. The important step is to share through your TV remote app.)

    On your TV:
    1. Look at the screen

    I've noticed the share option is in my native browser as well as my Opera browser. Was playing with it like crazy last night. :)
