    I think I read somewhere that the new processors to be used in GoogleTV devices will support RVU. I don't know a whole lot about the technology but I believe it's just a protocol, right? So, I was wondering if support for RVU could be brought to previous hardware via a simple software update?

    I am purchasing Direct TV and was hoping my Sony Google TV would eventually be able to take advantage of the cool new technology one of their receivers offers. Also, it would be pretty darn cool if my android phone could also be used as an RVU device.
