    I tried searching for this topic but I couldn't really get an answer.

    I read online that you can sync the Revue to PC but I can't figure out how. Can someone please tell me how to do that? I apologize ahead of time if this topic has already been discussed.

    I'm pretty sure that you may have misread that or are suffering from a bad recollection. That might explain why you're unable to find the answer, since the Logitech Revue does not have this capability. However, the other Google TV devices with Android 3.1 (Honeycomb) have an ability to use the same bookmarks that you use in Chrome on your PC by utilizing the Chrome Sync service.

    Thanks for the response. I was just reading some reviews before I purchased and I could've sworn I read a review that you were able to stream movies on your PC to the Revue.

    Ahh, that part is true but it is not something one considers "syncing". Syncing is the act of merging the content from separate sources. Whereas, streaming is the act of consuming content from a remote source. You can use the Logitech Media Player app from the Logitech Revue to stream your movies from your PC with a DLNA server like Twonky, TVersity or even Microsoft Windows Media Player Sharing.

    You're welcome. Glad to help. There are a plethora of threads scattered on the forum in regarding DLNA streaming. So, searching "DLNA" is enough to find a gaggle of hits. The premise is pretty simple though: 1) install application 2) update catalog with files to share 3) use the Revue to stream content.

    I could be wrong, but I think you are talking about Logitech Media Player. You can view photos, videos, listen to music from your PC via the Revue. It's one of the choices on the HOME screen at Applications. You can find out more hopefully online. It needs to scan your PC to find that content, and then can stream or play it via the Revue. Hope this helps!

    Best,
