    My current setup for A/V is:

    STB => AVR
    PS3 => AVR
    Wii => AVR
    HDTV => AVR
    AVR => HDTV

    I currently use a Harmony remote to control the various options. I can stream various online services (Vudu, Amazon, CinemaNow, Hulu, etc) via either the HDTV or the PS3. The HDTV <=> AVR connection supports audio from HDTV (local antenna and network streaming) through AV speakers. I never use the TV's speakers.

    What I want to know is:
    1) Will a show search on the Revue return options on internet services offered on other hardware (HDTV and PS3) or only those options offered directly through the Revue box (and connected STB)?
    2) Does the Revue offer a Vudu and/or CinemaNow streaming?
    3) Would the Revue remote replace the Harmony for controlling the PS3 and CD?
    4) Given the existing options I already have, is the $100 Revue worth getting or is it overkill?

    I like the concept of having a single device to search all inputs for viewing options, but if it can't locate options on services offered by my other hardware, I don't know if it really helps. I imagine that the perfect scenario would be to have a device that "intercepts" all the other devices (not just the STB) in order to capture and search all available media options. I'm guessing that doesn't exist yet though. ;)
