I believe you only have 3 options to get NetFlix on the same HDMI input as an Over The Air (OTA) DVR.
- The Logitech Revue with Google TV that you have asked about.
- A HD TiVo (current model is the Premiere).
- A Home Theater PC (HTPC).
Of the 3 the Logitech Revue is by far the cheapest at about $99 as you would continue to use your existing DVR. If you have a Best Buy near where you live you can try it out as they have a good return policy.
I have several HD TiVos being used for OTA DVRs nice solution but to buy a Premiere with lifetime service if you are a new customer will cost you $600 ($500 if you have a friend who can buy it for you with their existing customer discount) and many people do not like the Netflix app on TiVo (I don't use it).
A HTPC if built correctly would give you the most options but again is going to cost at least $600 and would require substantial involvement in building it and setting it up to work correctly.
