1. Does it support DLNA?
2. Can I play home movies or other videos on it. What formats and specfications does it support?
3. Does it support an attached USB drive with music (mp3 or wma), videos and pictures?
4. Can it access local network hard drives?
5. Do you have a feature comparison chart with Boxee and PopBox included.

I have the same questions regarding accessing content from an external usb drive, and if it is possible to do so, what formats are supported?
Thanks in advance.

Here are the answers to your questions regarding the Logitech Revue.

Thanks for the explanation.
Need clarification on your comments,
Xvid (H-264) + AAC (.mp4), Xvid (H-264) + AAC (.mt2s .mt2), Xvid (MPEG4part2) + AAC (.avi), Xvid (MPEG4part2) + MP3 (.avi)
However on the Revue launch event, there was a mention of *.mkv. Is *mkv supported ?
Will the Revue support USB HUBs? Multiple USB Drives (HDD, etc) through a HUB to the Revue?
Also, there is a mention of supporting only USB Mass Storage Drives less than <40GBs. Most of the HDDs nowadays are at minimum 500 GB and above. Is there plan to support higher memory. How is the current limitation of FAT32 format only being addressed?
Appreciate your answer.

A rep during the release today mentioned that it could accept USB attached drives to play content. I could be wrong, but that was noted on the CNET live blog today.
From the live blog: "falcone: Reps are confirming that you can connect FAT16/32 USB drives: Wednesday October 6, 2010 4:10 "

- How will the Revue function without a cable/satellite set-top box?
- Will support be added for devices similar to the SiliconeDust HD HomeRun?
- Is there a version in the works that supports OTA or has a built in tuner/decoder?

Yes it can, however according to this link,
its limited to 40 GB and FAT32.

Looks like you can use it without cable or satellite!!!
Straight from the Logitech Twitter account: http://twitter.com/#!/logitech
"If you don’t have a cable or satellite service, you can still access Internet content & use apps."
I'm cutting the cord baby!!

I'd also like to know how the Revue will function without a cable or satellite box. I don't have either. I get my tv content from an OTA antenna. Will the Revue not work with this? Will I have to switch inputs between GoogleTV (internet only) and the OTA tv signal?
Also, why the 40GB limitation on usb mass storage devices? The only such devices I have below 40GB are usb memory sticks. I have 500GB and a 2TB usb external HDs. It would be really cool if the Revue could support such HDs and if an app were developed so that it could use them to act as a DVR and another app for torrenting.
