    I had just started playing a favorite classic rock video and was enjoying it when the Revue interrupts with a big box in the middle of the screen "System Updates Available - do you want to update now? Later? More Info". How about "you gotta be (*&%&. kidding me!" They could put that message up when you're on the home page or politely scroll it at the bottom or something. But to interrupt your program with their code update is a sign the geeks don't entirely get the entertainment experience.
    Hope this is taken constructively!

    I recall someone on Leo's TWiT podcast claiming the same thing! It's ridiculous...21st century, and these things cannot update themselves in the background or 'quietly' upon launching. You're absolutely correct...'engineer vs. user' gap is enormous on this.

    I consider this a major issue, so I moved it here. I would think this is an OS issue, since it was an update.
