I did not want my first few posts on here to be negative, but Logitech and Google have forced my hand. I desperately want the product to be great, and it has some world-changing ideas, unfortunately they are not implemented. I wanted to write something on what GoogleTV will NOT do. With the recent price drop, I, like many others, went out and picked one up. However, after spending 30 mins with it, it becomes painfully obvious why more Revues are being returned than are selling. Do I want you not to pick one up? Absolutely not. I want to pull aside the smoke and mirrors and clarify the intentional vagaries and prevent you from making a mistake if you were picking one up for a certain reason. If you want to watch video on demand on the web, on your TV, this is the device for you! In short, with the current version of GoogleTV on a Logitech Revue, I was duped. A device that has the power to change every other IR device in my rack, has the power to run apps, lives under the idea of "open", and promises revolution delivers only a non-configurable searchable guide with a oversized remote (a keyboard). I absolutely love the idea of an "overlay" on TV, this prevents my girlfriend from having to switch inputs (I might as well ask her to spin gold from yarn) on my AV rack when we want switch between watching TV or watching local content. I absolutely love the idea that it is an "open" computer which has direct access to the primary display device in my house. Given the POWER and POTENTIAL of such a device, here are a list of items I would want it to do: I want to customize the guide for me. (e.g. block certain channels from showing in my searches or guide, either because I don't pay for them, or I refuse to watch SD content on an HDTV) -- Corrected, see thread below. I want my remote content on my NAS device indexed so I can use the search bar and play it quickly. I want to create a list of favorite programs. I want to use that list of favorite programs and see which of them are on right now. I want to see upcoming airings of shows I like (perhaps, ones in my favorites). I want to find a program in the future and have it tune to the channel at that time. I want to record a program on my DVR. I want to see upcoming recordings. I want to arbitrate conflicting recordings. I want to set up a schedule where certain programs will automatically show (e.g., I wake up at 6:30a, I would like The Weather Channel already tuned when I turn on the TV) I want to set up a schedule where certain programs will ask me to show (e.g., Between the hours of 6p-10p, if Family Guy is on, ask me if I want to tune to it.) I have an Android phone, I want it to a Growl-like display of who is bothering me while I'm watching TV. I would like a one-button "Dashboard"-style overlay to give me the weather, stock info, whatever I choose. The Logitech Revue does none of this. At every step it seems like I am thwarted: I have the ability to search in the future for a show, HOWEVER, I cannot select "Tune Later", "Record" or "Reminder" to make sure it comes on. I have the ability to select a certain show, HOWEVER, I cannot record it (unless I'm using DISH Network). It's just an IR code, why can't it happen? I have the ability to view my DLNA content, HOWEVER, I cannot search it. Isn't the WHOLE POINT of giving me a keyboard to search???? I have the ability to view the TV guide by genre, HOWEVER, I have no ability to add favorite shows/channels. Yes, granted, I am an advanced user, but this device seems like it was just made to be an Amazon VOD/Netflix viewer. It is not meant to be a home theatre replacement. But if you are going to put a device in that you are calling "open", runs a computer-based operating system, and uses the biggest information display in my house, you have some big pants to fill. I hope some of these short-comings are fixed in the next version.
