  • This is outstanding news and I for one look forward to updating my Revue – I just hope there is SMB support and ways to toggle ADR tracks

  • Great! But how can i buy the revue??? is out of stock and i live in Perú. If u could help me ill be greatfull


  • Ashish, thanks for this great update.
    Will the improvements to the Logitech media player result in Revue being able to play .MKV with DTS sound ?
    i sure hope it does …

  • When the update is ready will it be detected, downloaded and installed automatically or are there any manual steps we need to take? Thanks!

  • I am looking forward to the new version of Google TV to Logitech Revue so that I can have access to the Android Market. I have been using Logitech Revue daily to watch Netflix movies. I have just ordered another one for another TV for $99.99. It is a great deal, and great product.

  • Hi I am new to Logitech Revue. I was wondering with the new update will this include the latest Google web browser and security updates?

  • What are some of the new features? Hope there will be more internet contents available through the Revue after the update.

  • I have not been able to stream videos from sites such as ESPN 3. Will this update help?
    I understand that Google Chrome will have the updated version of Flashplayer.

  • WOW finally !! When are you releasing it . Nov 8th?
    I’m using the product in India and purchased it through Amazon.

    Will there be any problem/restriction when upgrading the box.
    Please let me know . Thankyou .

    Thanks for the great device and for reducing the cost to $99.99 :) .

  • I paid $299 for a piece of junk, it’s about time it’s getting updated. Even the $99 is a high price, no wonder Intel stopped the whole effort.

  • Thanks for the update can’t wait,I hope every one brings more content to the revue.

    Thanks Again.

  • ok. but how soon? us Revueist.. are seeing fellow Sonyites get their GTV this week.. so is soon like a few days? weeks? months? or is it just soon.. we dont know how soon or when,,
    but soon.. i really dig my revue,, im typing this on it… but.. I think something a little less then soon,, would be quite helpfull… if xmass arrived and there were no presents,, but my parents told me… your presents will get here soon.. well thats kinda what the wait is like..

    im all grown up.. but soon.. is just well mean… lol..

  • Mr Ashish,

    I bought the revue back in the day for $300 and returned it within a week for reasons we are all well aware of. Last week my wife heard from a coworker that the revue is getting the update so she went and bought me one for our anniversary. Im afraid im going to have to return this one aswell since I have a 15 day return policy and no definite answer on the update. Which i would like to add, has been promised for well over a couple of minutes.

    I would also like to add that promises you make do increase sales, like in my wifes case. But even naive consumers learn their lessons sooner or later….

    Yours sicerely,

    Logitech fan…

  • Soon? This honestly, has been a big kicker with Google. This was like their Google Voice product (which of course, I own). When they bought out Grand Central Station they announced it, but then you heard nothing. No updates…and if you did, the dates were missed.

    I’m a HUGE supporter of Google, and I’m a SW analyst so I, better than most, understand not putting out a product that’s not ready. My frustration (along with millions of others) is the lack of expectations. I hear “Soon” and I saw a post (with pics) showing devices in stores with this update, but what about the people who’ve been using it with the current software. Why can’t we get some kinda info on this as far as “This month” or “Next Month” or “Weeks’ etc. Soon is something you tell your kid when you want to put them off :)

    I’ve read where some people are saying they’re going to guy buy a new one (with the update already on it) , swap them in the box and return it so they have the updated one, and the store gets the non updated one back. I don’t support this, but I kind of understand it.

    I had (and still have) Really high expectations for this thing, but I’d just like to know when to expect those expectations :(

  • Will there be another announcement when the roll out begins? Right now I’m torn between checking my news feeds for the update, and checking the actual update option under the Revue settings. Help me pick which one to stare at please! :)

    Looking forward to this release so very very much. I’ve had a Revue since I think December 2010. it’s been a long wait, but It really looks to be worth it.

  • We are truly excited about GTV 2.0 hitting the Revue. Well done Logitech. Any chance we can get an ETA for the OTA push?

  • Can’t wait for the update! I’m hoping for it relatively soon as I am anxious to see how well Plex will function. If it works well I will be buying more of them to stream my library to all my Tv’s in the house.

  • I bought the Revue due to the reduction in price and anticipated honeycomb update. Being in the Digital Media industry, I get to contribute to it’s future. I consider the Revue a great purchase and investment in my entertainment future.

    Like all of you, can’t wait until the update happens.

  • Wow I hope this happens soon – purchased the Revue with this update in mind several months ago and really want to get my hands on Marketplace – that is the change Google TV really needed – the free market has spoken! :)

  • I am dying to get this update, hopefully it will be soon. While you are at it please fix the page up and page down butttons, and let me add custom buttons/commands on your mobile app. Thx

  • i been waiting for this update for a long time.. please let it happen today. november 8th.. i already check @ 5am pacific time and there was nothing yet. i’ll keep checking w/ you guys here see if anything new.. thanks keep up the good u guys are doing..

  • It’s a very nice device to surf on the big screen with, but it sure would be nice if the Revue updates like the Sony devices to Honeycomb. Great job on the box and the keyboard that comes with the box is very light and responsive. Easy set up also. One more thank you to Logitech for having wireless included and going down on the price to $99.

    • Logitech

      Logitech Revue with Google TV with Android 3.1 will include an improved Logitech Media Player experience, which will deliver smooth access to your personal content, including photos, downloaded music files and home videos that are stored on a USB drive or a DLNA-compatible media server on your home network.

      Turning your PC or Mac into a media server will be made even easier with our free Logitech Media Server software.
      Just download and install this server software onto your computer, and you will make it simple for Revue to access your stored media over a wireless or wired network.
      The software will also help organize your media – making it searchable through the Quick Search Box on Google TV. Then, your libraries of music, movies and photos will only be a few keystrokes away.
      Revue also works with many other popular third-party DLNA media servers to access networked media content.

  • Waiting is fine. But I hope the update will solve the WMP plugin requirement otherwise there is no use of the update. Also i expect that it will support .mkv audio.

    Is it possible to install the vlc media player once we get the update?

  • That’s what we have been hearing for weeks/months. Sony was able to release why can’t you? Looking forward to the release but also now looking for alternatives as it has been so long promised without delivery.

  • I’m using my Revue in the UK…

    “Can’t find any other similar product in the UK to match this brilliant piece of kit”

    Looking forward to the update.

  • I think Logitech is jerking us around, WHERE THE HELL IS THE UPDATE! I guess it will be here December 2012, by then Sony Google TV will have Ice Cream Sandwich on their Google TV boxes. I think we’ve all been tooken for a ride. I’m trading my Logitech box for an apple tv.
    At least I know when it will update.

  • Any word on when the update is actually coming? I work for Dish Network and I am asked every day at work. I also happen to have a Revue at home as well. thanks


  • May I know when will the update to Google TV be released? It is ridiculous that you’ll have not come up with the update yet. Sony came out with the update almost 2 weeks back. What is the delay about?

    • Logitech

      We can’t comment on another company’s launch cycle, however we can say that we learned a lot from the initial launch of Logitech Revue, and we’re working to ensure we’re delivering the best possible experience to our current and future Logitech Revue owners.

  • I was sad to read that Logitech will not longer develop the Revue. I guess you were a bit ahead of the product development. I would hope a similar product will be be developed in the future. I have a number of Logitech products and have considered your company on the cutting edge of development. I also enjoy my Revue. My question is about the release of the upgrade that has been promised, I would expect that you will still be releasing it, as promised, soon. I would think it would be a disaster not to fulfill that commitment. Would it be possible for you to advise me when it would be available ? I am sure you are being swamped by similar requests, however, it would be remarkable if you were not. Your product is good, with an upgrade even better, but unfortunately, is guess, unprofitable.
    Thank you in advance for a “heads up” on the upgrade.

  • Will the recent announcement that logitech would drop support for the revue affect us the users waiting for the update or will a still get the update a was promised

  • Thank you for continuing to post that the update is coming. That is great news. In light of the statements made by Logitech’s CEO, it would be even better if Logitech could immediately put out a statement of some kind addressing what exactly this will mean in the future for current Revue owners. Some key issues to address would be:

    * Timeframe for launch of the 3.1 update
    * Will the Revue boxes get future updates beyond 3.1
    * Will there be any kind of tech support going forward

    Thank you.

  • Who actually pushes the update to the hardware, Google or Logitech?
    Will Google be able to distribute future updates to the Revue after Logitech ceases to be involved? I’m about to plunk down my cash and buy the Revue and camera and would like to know if I’m purchasing an orphan that can’t/won’t be updated as GoogleTV gradually gets its act together. Will I be able to install updates to Logitech Vid HD software to the Revue? Will that be automatic? manual? none of the above?

  • The Logitech Revue is a ‘Great’ product. Please release the update so that I can continue to enjoy my Revue. I still plan to give the Revue as Christmas gifts !!

  • Why The almost 6 month delay. I think why is a reasonable request-Can we at least get a reason why?

  • I was sorry to hear today that you are planning to discontinue production of the Revue, I am expecting the Google TV platform to (finally) come into it’s own with the coming update, and with the new low price of the device I think you will see strong demand for the Revue this holiday season and beyond. I for one am very please with the Revue, as I have been by just about every Logitech product I’ve owned over the years.

    Now regarding that update… I’m trying to be patient, but it’s getting harder and harder every day.

  • While I understand that LOGITECH is a business and is worthless without making money. Share holders demand this! Maybe dropping the Revue is what you feel you need to do. Since Android is a Open platform Maybe after your release of the way over do, way over anticipated release of the honeycomb update, that has your costumers in a uproar. You could save face by making available to those that desire, the access into the structure of the revue. so the revue community can build on the platform. XBMC has come wonders in development because the community has made it that way, and is not really that bad as a entertainment platform. Your costumers not being abandoned with a product that is a year old and already a doorstop. Business model 101 cool someone bought your product . Business model 102 Repeat business. How many Revue customers do you honestly believe will be purchasing Logitech products in the future. Logitech will be only as good as the consumers make it. If we stop buying your productswelcome to the 99 percent club get your sign and head to the nearist demonstaration!

  • The Revue is one of the best products I have ever bought. I enjoy it immensely. Far superior to my Roku XS will ever be. It con controls my TV, STB and AV Receiver all for $99.00. I am happy the way it is whether it gets the update or not. Please don’t abandon the Revue and keep developing it.

  • Can we get an ETA on the update? We’ve been loyal Logitech customers, and it seems like
    Logitech doesn’t care?

  • We are eagerly waiting to get the Android update on the Revue. The box will gain massively in value through the update. Currently it lacks a lot of flexibility and usuability.

  • Logitech

    Thanks for your input. We have read all of your comments and ask you to visit our latest post post for additional news about the next version of the Logitech Revue with Google TV here:

  • I am an original buyer of this product almost a year ago. I remember last year you guys promised many updates and new functionality. “If you can think it, you can do it” well kinda. I’ve been waiting for updates the whole time I’ve owned this product. I guess I’ll be satisfied when I finally get one. I’ve had lots of fun with it and think the $99.00 for it is about right. I paid too much but it was new and exciting with all of that promise. Please make your promise come true, thanks

  • I have the new version of google tv, how can i watch espn 3? currnetly i can only watch wiht my i pad or ms windows xp operating system computer. thanks,

    • Logitech
