    Nope. TiVo app does not support Nexus 6. It works on my Nexus 7 which also runs lollipop, so lollipop is not the problem. My N6 is not rooted.

    Thanks for the links. Sounds interesting, I'll have to look into that when I have some time. Is it simple to setup?

    I already had Plex installed on my computer. I use it to stream to my Roku; I also have the Android app on my phone.

    Installing the plugin was very easy--just copy the TiVoToGo.bundle folder into the Plex plugins folder. It then appeared as a channel in Plex. The first time you open the channel it prompts you for the media access key. When you open the channel a second time, your TiVo My Shows appear. You can also choose to download shows rather than stream them.


    EDIT:
    This may not be entirely reliable. It streams fine on my G3. But I tried it on my [unrooted] Nexus 7--it plays for about 5 seconds then stops, which is behavior others have reported on Android devices.

    FURTHER EDIT:
    I considered whether the above was because the Nexus 7 is running Android Lollipop, but it also doesn't stream properly on my Sony Xperia Z tablet running Android 4.4.2. Like the Nexus 7, the Sony is unrooted (actually, both the Sony and the Nexus 7 were previously rooted, but I unrooted them to allow the standard TiVo streaming to work).

    I have a TF101 tablet running the KatKiss ROM. I just tried uninstalling from within SUPERSU, then rebooting. The icon is gone, but I still can't stream. :( Bummer.

    The latest update that just posted today allows for streaming on rooted devices! They also added compatibility for more devices, including the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9.

    I just noticed this when using my daughter's Note 10.1 2014 (rooted, stock). My Note got dropped and is broken so I was messing with hers and gave TiVo a try. I was surprised that it works because in the past it hadn't on my rooted/stock device. I wanted the streaming so I unroofed mine and all has been fine. After hers worked I figured an update had unroofed it but root checker says it is still rooted. Nice to know for when I get mine back!

    Anyone know if it works on custom ROMs?

    Looks like it is no longer working for me on rooted phone. Anyone else having problems?
