Controling YouTube app on Roamio via YouTube app on Android Tablet??

Hello All,

I must have missed this and was wondering how long this has been true. While messing around with YouTube on my Android tablet I found a box that when I opened it gave me the option to select my Roamio, when I did the YouTube app on my Roamio opened, then I could also start or queue up videos on my Roamio from my Tablet's YouTube App.

How long has this been working? Any other apps that work this way (Netflix, Hulu+)?

R.I.P. - 04/04 - Dish 510
09/05 - Humax T-800
R.I.P. - 08/06 - TiVo
05/08 - TiVo HD
06/08 - Panasonic 50PZ800U 50" Plazma!!
03/10 - Series 3
11/10 - Premiere
09/13 - Roamio
12/15 - Bolt

Netflix will (iOS version does, I would think the Android version does too). I believe Hulu+ now supports this as well but the TiVo version of the app hasn't been updated to take advantage of this yet.

There are a few threads discussing this stuff. Look for "DIAL" threads.

Youtube has always worked with android apps. The premiere one works fine too. I use it with my phone all the time.

Yeah you could do this on the premiere too, the main difference being that on the premiere it requires a pairing step that had to be initiated on the Tivo first. You couldn't just send the video to the Tivo without that preparation first. You couldn't do this with Netflix though, that is new on Roamio.
