    I had been running disconnected from the cable box all this time. What features or advantages do you get if you connect it?

    Near as I can tell, all you get is to save one hdmi connection by using the live tv icon. How much integration is there and how aware of the cable box is the revue. Just wondering how useful it has been for you? Is it even aware of your cable providers content? Maybe increased search ability?

    For me, (Comcast in Chicago) without the cable box, I couldn't get any channels past 103. Premium channels (HBO,Showtime, etc.) wouldn't play at all.

    I think he is asking about advantages of connecting the cable box to the Google TV box.

    yes, this is what I was asking.

    My revue is working great as a tv browser and media player. however, i am sure that's not what google or logitech intended. so what I am trying to find out is what's the big deal about the whole googletv/cable box integration.

    Don't know about cable but with directv it was awesome.
    It overlays on top of the sat picture when you hit home or search.
    The tv and movies app works great.

    You are missing out on why it is so great.

    I agree it looks pretty and works but actual tangible advantages are what he is asking about and I couldn't give him a good answer. I liked how it looked when I breifly tested it but don't use it personally with my TiVo and OTA but might reconsider if I can better understand what it will add to my experience.
