Logitech revue updating account information

It's also the cheapest, at 9, and possibly the easiest to add into an existing A/V system, since it has Logitech's Harmony universal remote technology built-in. Externally, the Revue isn't much to look at: it's a flat black box with a glossy black top that almost impossible to keep fingerprint-free once you've touched it for the first time.

We've already covered Google TV as a platform, so let's take a closer look at the Revue to see if Logitech's riff on the connected TV is worthy of its lead-dog status. There are IR emitters at the corners that allow the Revue's Harmony software to control additional A/V equipment like a TV or receiver, and around back you'll find power, optical audio out, Ethernet, two USB ports, HDMI in and out, a Bluetooth pairing button and two optional IR blaster ports in case your setup prevents the built-in emitters from reaching your other gear.

We'll hand it to Logitech, the keyboard is remarkably thin and light while still feeling solid, and we didn't cause it any serious harm after a couple drops to our wood floor.

In our case, the DVR button acted as the Ti Vo button, which was useful.

Unfortunately, the keyboard isn't backlit, which makes using it in a dark home theater room somewhat difficult.

We've also noticed that Revue tends to slow down every now and again for no apparent reason, but we're chalking that up to the early software on these device.

The Revue does have one particularly annoying issue, though -- depending on how well you line up that initial screen size calibration, the Google TV overlay might be wildly off-center.

Unfortunately, the Harmony integration doesn't go beyond hitting the database for programming info in any way.
