I've been playing with the Logitech Media Player connecting to a J River Media Center DLNA server. Observations:
1) Revue does not support FLAC. This is not a bitrate issue as Logitech's squeezebox supports FLAC no problem over 802.11g.
2) Neither WMA nor WMA Pro work.
3) Revue must do some local caching. I can add additional files on the DLNA server that are immediately reflected in the J River application. The Revue does not always show the new files. When this happens, I power cycle the Revue and the files show up.
1) What are the max bit rates supported on AAC and MP3? J River has a convert media function for unsupported file types. On my server, it converts FLAC to MP3. This works as long as I set the DLNA server to conver to MP3 medium bit rate or low bit rate. It does not work if the convert to MP3 high bit rate is set. I asked J River and the medium bitrate is only 128kps. I would have expected the Revue to support all bitrates of MP3.
I uncovered a similar issue with AAC. If I use Windows Media Player as the DLNA server, the Reuve will not play back 400kbs ACC files.

They can't hear us - the customer feedback codec is not supported on Revue.
On a more serious note, of course we will see an update. The question is what it will bring to us - something that customers want, or something that Logitech and google imagine will be the revolution of TV. I would rather go with the first options, but google most likely thinks otherwise..

No support for DTS either...
Only wish was they were still working on updates for this hardware been dead for awhile now.
