This page will be dedicated to the hardware specifications, descriptions, and information related to the Logitech Revue.

The Revue was initially released October 21st 2010 (with official availability on the 25th) in the United States. The Revue was released initially as a pass-through device meant to augment your initial set top box connection to your display device. For customers using the "DISH Network" Satellite subscription television service, integration was available that allowed the Revue to communicate directly with the satellite receiver/set top box. For all other devices, an IR blaster was used to simulate remote control commands as a means to communicate between the Revue and the STB hardware.
