    The iPod Shuffle, an MP3 music-listening device, can be connected to a USB port on the back of a Google TV (I use a Logitech Revue).

    Does the technology within a Google TV permit MP3's to be downloaded into an iPod Shuffle, when the Shuffle is connected to the Google TV's USB port?

    If not, can a sideloaded/downloaded application accomplish this result? I know there are applications that will do this in conjunction with a "computer", simply and quickly, but I don't own a computer. Nor is the Google TV a computer.

    Some of the applications that I have on my Revue are : ES File Explorer, Dropbox and Tinyshark Downloader (works with the music site GrooveShark - possibly only on a computer Exigo Software Tinyshark Downloader is the green one 0.8). The first application is quite complex. It may be possible to do this with it, but I don't have time to get a degree in Systems Engineering to figure it out!

    A lot of people have read my earlier post related to this issue, but no one has responded. Apparently, everyone that uses a Google TV also owns a computer (except for me and Catfishrivers), and so don't have a need to use a Google TV to this end? I can't believe the technical proficiency doesn't exist in this forum to answer this question with a simple yes or no - yes, it can be done or no, it can't be done.

    GoogleTVForum needs to enable the system whereby people can make micropayments for answers to questions. I'm would be willing to pay someone to get this question answered.

    Re: Revue can read on the future upgrades USB devi... - Logitech Forums

    This query received a reply on the Logitech company's Forum. If anyone can make a further contribution, please do, here or there.

    Camacho, a Logitech Support Specialist, replied:

    You can use a USB Mass Storage Device to play Music, Videos and Pictures in our Logitech Revue. The only thing that you need to do is to plug your USB to your Revue and open the Logitech Media Player App and then you will only need to select what content you will want play and that's it.

    Please note, that the Revue does not download any music, pictures o videos to your USB Drive or to the Revue internal memory.

    Logitech Media Player supports many different audio, video and photo file formats including:
    3GP (HE-AACv2/HE-AAC/LC)
    M4A - (MP4)
    FLAC (16-bit / 44kHz)
    WAV (LPCM)
    WMA (v9 Stereo)
    Video (Format - Codec)
    3GP - H.263, H.264, MPEG4
    AVI - MPEG-4 Part 2 (v1,2,3), DivX (v5), XviD, H.264/MPEG4-AVC
    MKV - MPEG-4 Part 2 (v1,2,3), DivX (v5), XviD, H.264/MPEG4-AVC
    MOV - MPEG-4 Part 2 (v1,2,3), DivX (v5), XviD, H.264/MPEG4-AVC
    M4V - MPEG-4 Part 2 (v1,2,3), DivX (v5), XviD, H.264/MPEG4-AVC
    MP4 - MPEG-4 Part 2 (v1,2,3), DivX (v5), XviD, H.264/MPEG4-AVC
    WMV - WMV3, WVC1
    TIFF (low complexity)
    I responded:

    You say it doesn't download to a USB Drive. Can it upload to a USB Drive? Is there an application that can do this?

    When the Logitech Revue (and its advanced manual, wherever that is) was created, the use of applications on the Logitech Revue were not yet possible. Is your comment written from hands-on experience with the Logitech Revue or are you reading from the Revue's "user manual"?

    I have read that you can use the Revue to download to a storage device with the "Navi-X" and "Mitty" apps.
