    I am a Plexpass member, but I think I just have the regular version installed. But nowhere do I see a spot to enter a MAK. I found an XML file that I tried changing the MAK on, but that didn't work either. From what I have read, I should be able to see my TiVo, regardless of whether or not I have a MAK. The MAK is just required to download and decrypt the TiVo files.

    This is what mine looks like. I don't think it looks right, but I can't find screenshots elsewhere.

    Did you have to add the channel or did it just appear?

    How did you install the app on your computer?

    I put the TiVo.bundle file/folder in the plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins folder. But mine isn't working, so...

    I got mine to appear by changing the ownership and group. Mines were somehow set to root. However, I don't see the Tivo's but I guess that's for another day.

    Does this plug-in work if I access via a Roku?

    No, unfortunately it gets to where it tries to load the video and then kicks it back to the Roku home screen. Then again, i don't have a Roku 3, just an older box without the latest and greatest on it.

    It has started working for me in the Mac version of Plex just as long as you don't use the new "home theater " client.

    Its not the the roku doesn't see the Tivos- it does ( i have 3) and it sees all 3. Sees the recordings- no thumbnails- but cannot play. I did not reinstall my MAC addresses thru the roku, don't know if that is the problem.

    I'd imagine tons of people would pay for this if it came out and was rock solid... Effectively your STB costs under $100 with no subscription cost vs. the tivo mino at ~$250 with lifetime service. Only thing you lose is the live tv, however with TWC you have the live TV as well.

    I would GLADLY pay for a functional Plex add-in if it was reasonably priced ($10 or less)

    I got the plugin to appear but I don't see the Tivo's or even a place to add the MAK.

    Where exactly did you put the plug-in and what is the folder named?

    I have a version in;

    Code:
    /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Plug-ins/TiVo.bundle
    But I believe it was the one I put in;

    Code:
    /var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins/TiVo.bundle 
    That made it work. But I could be wrong.

    Thanks. I'll try that. Some developer could make a tidy sum by selling a working plug-in.

    I'm not seeing the tivo plugin in the channel list on plex and the link in this post gives an error saying content is not found by github. Anyone know what's up?

    I tried it today and when I click on the Tivo channel I get a box asking me to enter the MAK. When I put in the MAK I get an error saying content unavailable, make sure server is running. What server would it be talking about? Does this connect to the mind server? Do I need Tivo desktop running on my network (cuz I don't use it)?

    I'd love the opposite of this, the ability to run Plex via our TiVos.
