    ..... I must say I'm in love.

    First off I just purchased it 4 days ago. I saw someone on Google plus talking about taking theirs back. I tried to purchase it from him, but he let me know they're only $99 at Best Buy. I mean we all should know that nothing at Best Buy is a best buy, however this is a great deal.

    Secondly, I have Comcast. I didn't know that the HDMI port didn't work on my cable box. So I set up the Revue without the cable box.

    Played around with it, then was bored with it. So I rushed to Comcast to swap out boxes for one that has a working HDMI port.

    Got home, hooked it up, and its beyond amazing. The Revue + Cable box is a pure winner for me. Oh my gosh, finally I don't have to use Comcasts hideous menu's and guide!

    When me and my buddies are arguing about something or my lady wants to watch a new video I can instantly pull it up. I don't have to switch inputs!

    The remote; priceless. Enough said. I would've paid $99 for the remote alone, Google TV is just the icing on the cake.


    Another thing, I was considering building a HTPC for my living room. I was using my Xbox to stream my movies but I wanted more, and the Xbox is horrendously slow when using WMC. I was looking to spend around $600, but this Revue has me spoiled now.

    I just read about the HC update, sounds nice. I'm willing to bet it wont be released until Ice Cream is available for other devices. Not a moment sooner.

    Sorry for the rant and crazy sentences, I'm typing this on my phone.

    One more thing, I don't know if its the GTV or because I swapped cable boxes, but I'm getting all the Premium channels on Comcast now. I mean all of them except the PPV channels. I pay $57($30 is for the internet alone) per month for cable + internet, so I know this isn't right. I'm not complaining though.

    Off to watch HBO, starz, cinemax.... hahaha

    If you swapped cable boxes, that's why you're getting those channels. Sounds like Comcast hasn't reprovisioned your box yet - maybe they won't, but I wouldn't count on it :)

    Fingers crossed every morning. No biggie though. I can always stream movies from my desktop.
