Multimedia, AV "Yesterday, Logitech hosted an Analyst and Investor Day and during his remarks, CEO Guerrino De Luca pulled absolutely no punches in describing the 'mistakes' the company made with its Logitech Revue Google TV set top box. Calling the company's Christmas 2010 launch 'a mistake of implementation of a gigantic nature', De Luca told investors that the company had 'brought closure to the Logitech Revue saga' by making plans to let inventory run out this quarter and that there are 'no plans to introduce another box to replace Revue'."

HDMI does have a feature called "CEC" that allows mutual control between the TV and devices. Unfortunately it really only works when both are the same brand. Each brands has its own name for the implementation. Sony is "BRAVIA Sync", Samsung is "Anynet+" for example. I used to have a Sony BD player on a BRAVIA TV and it worked wonderfully. Turning on, switching to the correct AUX, turning off. And either remote could cover 100% of the control of the other without any setup. Also a BRAVIA TV remote can control the BD playing functions of a PS3 slim.

I replaced the TV with a Samusung one and now the only thing that works is the TV turning on when the BD player does. I'm seriously considering changing the BD player just for that reason. Maybe I'll find a person who's in the reverse situation and would like to trade.
