    I'm setting up Plex on my Tivo and its working great. But I cannot figure out how to search a title. I'll end up with 1000 movies on there when done, so searching is important.

    I've tried the Tivo search, but it doesn't search the Plex library. I don't see a way to search a title on the Plex interface either.

    I'd start by making sure I have all the movies and TV shows named properly and organized on your Plex server per Plex suggestions.

    How do you search for a specific title?

    I select "All Movies" which is on the left when you start that category. You can scroll through them visually or at the bottom select a letter and it brings you to movies that start with that letter. I don't think you can search as you might do for other video fare that is online or being broadcast which is what I think you are looking for. For instance, you can't search by actor or director.

    Thanks!

    That's what i was missing. I never went that deep in the menu to see the letters at the bottom. I'd rather have a search, but this is better than nothing.

    New Plex update today now adds filters, sorting and channels. Lots of other small updates too.

    Is Plex on Tivo now able to support 1080P?

    Opera browser on Tivo does not support 1080p. Until tivo updates that, plex cannot do anything. The new update DOES support 1080p on other opera based smart tv sets, just not on tivo.
