Since our announcement on Wednesday, I have received a few questions from people asking if the Logitech Revue will work with their existing cable or satellite provider and set-top box. I wanted to take this chance to clarify that the Logitech Revue companion box works with set-top boxes regardless of your cable TV or satellite TV provider (Comcast, Time Warner, Cox, Direct TV, etc).
Regardless of who is providing your broadcast TV content, you’ll see your TV content in your search results. You’ll also be able to control your set-top box and see the program guide.
DISH customers will have some functionality that is above and beyond what you get with the other cable or satellite providers – and that is deeper integration with their DVR. When Logitech Revue ships, only DISH customers
will see their DVR content show up in their search results. But if you have a different cable or satellite provider, and you have a DVR, you will still be able to use your Logitech Revue keyboard controller
to control your DVR, see your DVR menus, record a show or select content to watch.
So to sum it up, if you have an HDTV with an HDMI port, a HDMI set-top box and a broadband Internet connection, the Logitech Revue with Google TV
will work for you.
