I also just got my set on Friday.Updated with HC 3.1.



Many apps don't work on this Logitech Revue, eg: Angry Bird, PPS, Yuoku, Qi Yi TV.

So far tested working apps, are PPTV, Le TV, Facebook, OI File Manager,HI APK, Market.

any recommend for TV/movie apps?
Oh too bad... No angry bird.

Currently the key advantage of the revue to other boxes or smart tv is the full-blown Chrome web browser with Flash version 10 "

So after upgrading, the full blown Chrome with flash still working??

it is possible.
install a DLNA server application on your PC.

haven't try that yet, Revue can connect to DLNA-compatible devices.

I was actually thinking of getting the revue with that purpose in mind so haven't got one to try it out. Tried googling but couldn't find much answers. Guess I'll wait a little longer for honeycomb to be done before buying one to try

3.1 sub will not work.

3.1 i dont find any good just for added market and smb etc
2.1 also support flash too

do manual install.
download the apk from the respective website,
put into the USB drive
use File Manager to browse to the /mnt/usbdrive
select the apk and install

another way is install third party Android Market, such as hiapk.com, appbrain.com, etc

There are many apps there that not available in google android market.

the thing about LeTV is the text is too small, because the apps is designed for AndroidTablet, not for big TV.
I have problem seeing the text from my sofa



Once the movie start playing, quality and text size is quite OK.

hint: atv2
ATV 2 requires itunes to playback files from my computer right?
If so i cant use it as most of my videos are in avi. and mkv. so really troublesome and time consuming to convert so many files.

half correct if u jailbreak atv2 can play all file
and stream all file over smb/dlna etc

1) run xmbc
2) added plugin icefilms and other
3) stream all file and (all sub support on nighty build ver)
