    Like all of you, I’ve been waiting anxiously for the update. I haven’t gotten it yet but I have read feedback from those got it. While the feedback from Sony users is largely positive, it seems to me that the Revue upgrade is plagued with problems. Granted, the feedback is limited (with many just reporting “I got it”) but, to me, it is worrisome. I just hope that as the deployment gets more pervasive, solutions and work-arounds will be reported. The alternative i.e., that Revue is worse after the update, is too scary to consider.

    If by "largely positive" you mean that only a select number of Sony users have reported and experienced one or more of the following issues.:


    • DHCP errors prevent them from obtaining an IP Address
    • WiFi issues prevent them from connecting to an Wireless Access Point or Router
    • Netflix sockets have been broken and do not allow access
    • Various keyboard and application shortcuts are no longer present
    • videos that used to play are no longer compatible
    • unable to install apps from the Android Market

    Then sure, I guess the "Sony deployment when smoother than the Revue." So far, Sony has released an update to address the DHCP issue. Nothing much has been heard of the remaining problems.

    the update is just about identical to the sony one.. the only thing im a little ticked about is the spotty flash support but thats pretty much the vids sites not willing to upgrade their players flash.. i think.. but i dunno.. i think most folks are just daunted by all the new stuff.. and dont know where to begin.. at least thats how i feel..
    the old 2.1 was way less detailed so less to worry about.. this new stuff is a bit of a learning curve..

    mho..

    I have not got my update yet, but i would imagine that the Flash Problem is centered around You Tube Videos. Has anybody successfully tried the HTML5 Player on there Google Tv's, Sony, or Revue Box's yet? I will be trying this as soon as i get my Update.

    I am concerned with the quality of the update. I gave it a few days, disappointed me. Just bought a Roku 2 XD and the revue will be going on eBay. I'm not going to restart a device 3 times each time I use it just to get it to work.
