    The opening of the cover and working in your box will void all waranties!!

    This page will be dedicated to the hardware specifications, descriptions, and information related to the Logitech Revue.

    The Revue was initially released October 21st 2010 (with official availability on the 25th) in the United States. The Revue was released initially as a pass-through device meant to augment your initial set top box connection to your display device. For customers using the "DISH Network" Satellite subscription television service, integration was available that allowed the Revue to communicate directly with the satellite receiver/set top box. For all other devices, an IR blaster was used to simulate remote control commands as a means to communicate between the Revue and the STB hardware.

    Intel Atom CE4150 1.2 GHz processor, with a 400 MHz GPU
    Gigabyte GA-SBKAN2 motherboard

    I'm just wondering if the slow loading of web pages can be corrected in a meaningful way with a software/system update - or in your opinion will faster loading web pages require a more powerful processor? Any thoughts about this? I'm on the Logitech Revue.

    That's a question I have wondered my self.
    I do not have an answer as of yet, but I will try to check into that, because it is so popular of a question, I have not seen a positive answer on that yet....
