Logitech Revue update released: Netflix & Dual View improved [Video]

Logitech has pushed out the first update for their Revue Google TV box, and it's addressed two of the biggest complaints about the media streaming STB. The new firmware allows Revue users with Netflix accounts to search for content and update their queue from within the Google TV app itself; additionally, the Dual View picture-in-picture window (which shows both the current TV program and a browser window) can now be moved around the screen and resized.

Update: More on the firmware update - which is available for Sony's Google TV devices as well - at Google's blog.
