The honeycomb update will arrive soon. Access to the android app store should open many possibilities for GTV. With the purchase of motorola, and other rumors floating around, the writings of the death of GTV may have been greatly exaggerated.

i hope it happens sooner than later. i bought a logitech revue after the price drop (mostly to use the keyboard with my htpc)

ive been using it in my bedroom, where i use a media center extender. i like how it fills in a lot of the programming I cant get on the xbox without live (mostly hbo go, pandora, and netflix)

its media playing capabilities are a joke though, and the web browser feels like a beta test too.

one thing I think would be an ideal capability is a sling box type of function. you already have it plugged into your cable box, and also into the internet. just seems to make perfect sense.

Integration for whole home ATSC, CableCARD, FM radio, Blu-Ray, HD-DVD, DVD, VHS control & capture, video games, and archived & streaming media playback

I agree that GTV at its current state is rather rough around the edges. However it does have potential. I agree that having sling capabilities is a natural fit for GTV. I suggested it on their forum. Some on the forum have mentioned that they have already received one of the updates. I haven't gotten it yet.
