The official Google TV twitter account (@GoogleTV) linked to this article today:
This article says that the Revue will be updated to 3.2 "soon", and cites the GigaOm article people have posted here. Anyway, this seems like a good sign.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Don't hold your breath for MPEG-2 to ever be added to the Revue. Google already offered MPEG-2 to Logitech as part of the official Honeycomb 3.1 release. And while Sony accepted the "Full" 3.1 release from Google - Logitech made a strategic decision to eliminate MPEG-2 from the 3.1 release.
There is a licensing cost involved for MPEG-2 and the Revue is a discontinued product. Sony thought it was important because it is used a lot with Blu-ray player.

Well, i have paid about 169$ recently with shipment to Europe, and I feel very well with my Revue.
I had problems with the setup 7of11 issue, but bypassed it by making setup at night (US-hours).
From now on, me and my wife use the Revue everyday with no problems at all.
Most of phones with Android from year ago wont get any update now and You are complaining about geting 3.1 and waiting a while for a 3.2?! Absurd.
One thing that Logitech should do is to open the bootloader for 3.1 and leave the rest to the Android Devs if they are not planning to make any more updates.

I like my Revue. I have a few minor annoyances with it - however it's strange that my Revue very rarely gets a Shockwave crash since I received the 3.1 update. I actually think my Revue is more stable after the update. After reading all the complaints about the Shockwave crashes - all I can think of is that it must be very site specific.

Yet another happy Revue customer. Find me another $99 device that even comes close [feature for feature & apples to apples] My 2 units will provide many years of enjoyment -but- a future update or "custom rom" would certainly
sweeten the pot
