    I am in the TiVo app and playing around, but I cannot figure out how to get back to the main google app screens... any help?

    also, does google have a way to add padding to the screen - always have issues with this tv cutting off the edges.

    Figured it out... I was hitting the circle and all I would get is a black screen.

    unplugging it and plugging it back in fixed the issue.

    still trying to figure out if I can pad the margins

    Yes from the Android home screen go to settings - device preferences - more - display - screen position. I also had to shrink mine down to 95% it was cutting off things

    Not too bad... I just wish the remote could control my sound bar... that is more likely an limitation if the TV I would suggest.

    Is your soundbar not supported? I have my remote supporting my tv for everything but volume and it uses my soundbar for volume. Perhaps a different model remote than yours. Mine is the remote that came with the Mini Vox.
    I don't have soundbar on my tv where my main Tivo is located.

    It is an older TV doesn’t have HDMI ARC so it is hooked up using an optical cable - so the tv cannot control the sound bar.

    Leaning more - now trying to pair the Visio sound bar with the TiVo steam. Seems to be struggling

    Mine is an old Visio soundbar using audio cable.

    It seems to find it but never finishes.

    I am put the sound bar in Bluetooth mode, then tell the Stream to search for devices. It finds the sound bar, I select and it says “pairing...”. But just clocks and never finishes the connection.

    am I missing a step?

    I don't remember the screen when I did mine, but since that is a Bluetooth symbol and it has a statement about pairing BT devices I'm wondering if it thinks you are connecting it via BT.
    These are the instructions I followed. Part 2 was the audio I selected and it configured very easily.

    Those directions are for the TiVo DVRs. I have had that working for years.

    I am switching over to the TiVo Steam 4K which is really just trying to follow the android software. I will keep googling

    Oh, I see. I didn't realize it would be different UI.
