    When I go to the following website, CRON-O-Meter Track nutrition count calories , I get the following message. As of a few months ago, I had visited this website without any issues. I've written to Cronometer and they say that they've not received any similar complaints. I've done a factory reset of the Revue, but that didn't resolve the issue. No other website that I visit has this issue. Time and date is set up correctly. How does one go about finding and deleting a non-valid or corrupted security certificate? And then reinstalling the updated certificate? The owner of this website said that the "entity" that he uses is godaddy(?). Does anyone else with a Logitech Revue get this same message when they visit Cronometer?

    The site's security certificate is not trusted!
    You attempted to reach cronometer.com, but the server presented a
    certificate issued by an entity that is not trusted by your computer's
    operating system. This may mean that the server has generated its own
    security credentials, which Google Chrome cannot rely on for identity
    information, or an attacker may be trying to intercept your
    communications. You should not proceed, especially if you have never
    seen this warning before for this site.
    Help me understand
    When you connect to a secure website, the server hosting that site
    presents your browser with something called a "certificate" to verify
    its identity. This certificate contains identity information, such as
    the address of the website, which is verified by a third party that
    your computer trusts. By checking that the address in the certificate
    matches the address of the website, it is possible to verify that you
    are securely communicating with the website you intended, and not a
    third party (such as an attacker on your network).
    In this case, the certificate has not been verified by a third party
    that your computer trusts. Anyone can create a certificate claiming to
    be whatever website they choose, which is why it must be verified by a
    trusted third party. Without that verification, the identity
    information in the certificate is meaningless. It is therefore not
    possible to verify that you are communicating with cronometer.com
    instead of an attacker who generated his own certificate claiming to
    be cronometer.com. You should not proceed past this point.
    If, however, you work in an organization that generates its own
    certificates, and you are trying to connect to an internal website of
    that organization using such a certificate, you may be able to solve
    this problem securely. You can import your organization's root
    certificate as a "root certificate", and then certificates issued or
    verified by your organization will be trusted and you will not see
    this error next time you try to connect to an internal website.
    Contact your organization's help staff for assistance in adding a new
    root certificate to your computer.

    I clicked on the link using a rooted Android mini PC and didn't get the security warning. This thing is probably not safe to use so I wouldn't place much value on that. I will try with a Sony NSZ-GT1 and see what happens.

    I was able to go to the Cron-O-Meter web site with my Logitech Revue and didn't experience the issue that OP mentioned. I logged into the site with my Google account.

    On my Revue, I have a USB stick with music on it. In the past, I've done a factory reset and forgot to remove the stick before the reset. But that can't be related to the problem, because I have a Revue in another room and it too gets the same message! I'm not in the United States, but I don't see why that should make a difference.
