    Interesting post Chris. I'm hoping my Revue doesn't "conk out" before a new GTV set-top box becomes available. I doubt I could find a new Revue anymore and I'm not really interested in buying a refurbished Revue. I probably shouldn't be worried as my old WebTV lasted about 10 years -:)

    I don't think that at $99 or $49 a new GTV box would come with a full sized keyboard. But hopefully an optional keyboard will be able to be used through the USB port.

    I guess basically that would be correct although no Android TV box I have read about runs 3.1.

    It may be possible to get our Revue keyboard to work with one of the new Google TV boxes or a wireless keyboard intended for Android tablets. I am definitely going to continue to use Google TV with a keyboard.

    For those of you who are looking for another Revue (new), check Best Buy near you.
    I live in South Carolina. BB's web site shows 3 stores that have it in stock.
    The closest one to me is about a two hour drive, and I'm considering taking a drive to grab one (or two).
    I really enjoy my Revue, and the keyboard is a big reason why.
