No matter what, I cannot login to youtube on my TiVo Premiere. I've tried 2 existing accounts and 3 brand new ones just to see if it would work.
All 3 accounts are able to login from my various pc's.
My Netflix account works on the TiVo. As on my Android AND iPhone.
I've live chatted with TiVo and per the chat:
Me: What do I need to install so I can log into youtube? *I've tried existing, working usernames & passwords and also brand new usernames & passwords.
TiVo Help: You do not need to install anything. *What error do you get when trying to log in?
Me: The login name and password combination that you entered could not be verified. *Please check your login name and password and try again
TiVo Help: Is the account set to private?
Me: Well, I don't think so, but how can I check?
TiVo Help: You would check on Youtube on the computer.
Me: I don't see on YouTube where I would specify that. *Can you help me?
TiVo Help: Unfortunately no.
Me: Then how do you know that might be an issue? *I'm confused.
TiVo Help: Because if it is set to private, the TiVo box cannot log in. *However, they recently changed that part of their layout, so the link I have for the location of the settings do not work.
Me: If I'm reading your response correctly, you cannot help me fix my problem.
TiVo Help: If the Youtube account is set to private, the TiVo box cannot access it. We do not have new links yet for where the settings are on YouTube.
WTF do I do? TiVo Help was my last resort. I have made 3 new accounts over the past two weeks and tried each one. None will let me in.
Is it YouTube or TiVo? I've got to say that this was a really, really vague and unsatisfying chat. But no more vague and unsatisfying than me googling "cannot login to YouTube from TiVo". Not to mention searching their respective sites' help forums.
Anyone? Anyone? Bueler?
