    Hitting Tivo button is fine. I can go to Prime from Tivo as well as Netflix but hitting the Android button doers nothing. Holding that same button brings up all my apps but not the Android home screen. Anybody else? Any suggestions other than the inevitable restart?

    Restart your device or unplug it from the power

    Did you just get a black screen when you tried the Android TV home button? If so, it's a known issue - rebooting the stick fixes it.

    What is up with this POS? I struggle to get to the Android home page when it works and right now I get a lovely black screen. I won't complain about TiVo customer service cuz I'm not even gonna call. I was the fool who bought this worthless device. What are they gonna do? Tell me to unplug it? All I can do tv dies it sllis replace it with something that works. To be honest, my Samsung TV does all I need. I use netflix, prime, cbs, sirius, youtube and hbo. The tv does it all and dies it well. No more data for TiVo to sell. I am really down in this company as of right now. Oh yeah, Disney and vudu, which the tv dies also. Why did I even buy this thing except the faint hope it would work with my boxes.
