    I do not have a GTV set top box yet, but I wanted to ask this question. Is it possible to link multiple accounts? My situation would be if my wife and I have separate google accounts, and in turn Youtube accounts. If we want to switch back and forth between our uploaded videos, do we need to log out and login each time?

    I haven't tested this yet. But I just wanted to mention that on my Logitech Revue if I got to settings then "Accounts & Sync", then "Add Account", then "Google Accounts" - there are then 2 choices

    1) Create A New Google Account (create)

    2) Already have a Google Account (sign-in)

    When clicking to create a new account there is a page with a brief form to fill-in to create a new account.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    There was a thread on the Logitech Revue Forum (see link below) about multiple accounts. However the thread is kind of dated (as it's from August, 2011) - but based on that thread the functionality you are asking about was not available then. Although it was mentioned that this was something Google is working on. Hopefully someone that has tried this recently will post and answer your question:

    Yes. Hit the menu button and you can sign out of one and then into another account.

    Hi

    Just so ya know. While the Google accounts are separate, they are not exclusive like they would be on a MSN device or a computer. Each user's browsing sessions are accessible via history and bookmarks. Also each acct can be accessed by any user. But if privacy is not a concern, them multiple users can be added. But will ya remember to sign in each time?
    But there are quite a few ways to enjoy privacy on this device.

    Carl
