    Good review. Since I still haven’t gotten the update it is good to put a damper on my spirits 🙂

    This is a great review of the Revue. Initially, I though to buy this with a Bravia but later I bought the Google TV instead. I am enjoying the currently available features 🙂 and you are right about the not so easy access to most of the tools that we use.

    Am I ever going to be able to stream from ESPN3? I used to love to be able to stream directly from my logitech revue to my TV without my laptop. Unfortunately, it looks like I will still have to go that route. No one seems to be able to tell why the stream no longer works.
    I have emailed ESPN and have gotten no reply so far. Anyone out there help me out?

    I am still pissed about the bookmarks, that used to be my first key I would hit when turning on my revue. I will have to go home tonight and tryout your solution.

    Thanks

    Great review Kaul. Thanks!
    I have one question for you.

    I have a cable box connected via HDMI cable to my sony 32 google tv, it works great.
    But…. I have connected the tv via optical cable to my receiver and I only get 2 channels of audio (stereo). There is no way, or at least I didnt find one to configure in 5.1.

    Do you know if this is a bug or something?

    I try to connect directly from cable box to the receiver via optical cable and I get the 5.1 channels. So I’m sure the cable box is delivering 5.1.

    That’s the reason the problem is in google tv.

    Thanks!

    The 3.1 update was a virus. I lost the ability to view Crackle.com movies. And, i lost the ability to view NBC.com Videos. I wish they would re-load the Last Version.

    Thank you for your time,

    To delete bookmarks, cursor to the one you want to delete and then hold the ENTER key for a few seconds. A box will appear with many options, including delete bookmark.
