    I downloaded the iphone app to my ipad2 and can't seem to connect.


    It comes up on the screen and ask me to manually enter IP address. I have tried several times
    with no luck.

    Have re-booted both the ipad and the Revue, nothing.


    I am sure its simple but I am stumped.

    The iPad and the Google TV device needs to be on the same network or it won't work. Also there are a three Google TV iOS apps in iTunes Store. The one by Google will connect to any Google TV device, the Logitech one will only connect to the Revue, and the one made by Sony isn't going to work until their devices receives the 3.1 update.

    I have the Google TV version app.

    There are 2 wireless routers here at home but only one DSL modem.


    That would mean both my Revue and ipad are on the same network no matter which wireless router
    they are connected to, correct?

    No. Your routers can be separating your network into two different subnets. The IP broadcasts used by Google TV can only detect devices within the local subnet. So, if your iPad is connected to one router and your Google TV is connected to the other router then that is probably why the two cannot communicate with one another.
