Add this to the list for the problem-plagued Logitech Revue set-top, the first set-top device to run Google TV. After poor sales of the device led to a decision to discount and discontinue it, it turns out that many of the devices sold at the reduced price had a problem with the firmware.
When a user starts up a Revue device with corrupted firmware, the device's setup routine refues to authenticate with Google's servers, rendering it inoperable.
Logitech has acknowledged the problem, but the only solution for users with a problem Reveue is to return it for an exchange.
Due to poor sales of the Revue, Logitech has already announced it is getting out of the Google TV business.
