    So there's no built in Google Apps (Gmail, Maps, etc)? Does streaming MKV work?
    The standard installed applications thus far are just the ones that came with the Revue before such as NBA, Pandora, Napster.. But a few like the google chrome application, media player application, and podcasts application are all revamped.

    Unfortunately it doesn't even show MKV files in the media player application. However, I have successfully played two .mp4 high profile 720p videos. Along with a few .avi files.

    So at present you're unable to access netflix at all? What about through Chrome? Forgive me if I'm not understanding how it works.
    No, unfortunately there's no netflix application installed. Even in the "Manage Application" page there's none. Through the browser I login and it just shows me the system compatibility screen after trying to play a video.

    i dont have one yet but as long as theres one in stock somewhere in the morning im going to pick one up today.
    Could you try to login to netflix through some sort of a proxy site to possibly trick it to thinking its a destop?...or is there any options/settings menu for the browser that you can change your user agent to desktop or something else? just an idea.

    Hmmm, I'll try changing the useragent perhaps. I think it wouldn't work though since the desktops need silverlight.

    I did just get a file manager installed though! I enabled unknown applications to be installed as well, just tried installing the netflix apk from my phone but it failed. I'll try a few emulators

    No nothing like that. It seems like for the applications that can be installed, it automatically stretches them out (More or less in the correct way). For example, I have the Snesoid application installed and it looks pretty good. Huge buttons and selections but it works well and doesn't look crappy.

    So has someone tried the Netflix APK that was originally pulled off a hardware rooted Revue to enable some phones to access Netflix?

    you should go to the market through the browser and then it should be easier to see what compatible , or does google tv not show up in your device list?

    This would be fantastic. If someone who had a hardware rooted Revue could do this and extract the APK file from the original and install it on this that would be awesome and most likely work.

    Shouldn't be necessary. I saw many references to the APK when I was searching for something Revue related yesterday. Netflix apk from from rooted logitech revue (UPDATE 2/14) - xda-developers

    Thanks for the link! I did actually find that a few minutes ago though and I just tried both of those APK's.

    Netflix.apk is only 11kb -> Doesn't work

    NetflixLiveFolders.apk is about 111kb -> Doesn't work either :-/
