    That's no excuse. Tivo markets these devices as having all this streaming functionality when in reality it has a more limited app offering than basically any other modern streaming device and those apps are typically older. Regardless of who actually does the app development, it's Tivo's responsibility to get them on their product so it's competitive with what's on gaming consoles, Roku, AppleTV, etc... If that means Tivo needs to throw some money at these services, so be it. It's Tivo's responsibility to manage all these agreements so they can offer their services.

    Another IDEA at least no folder for listings containing one show. This will allow us to just hit the play button.

    Sure TiVo over sells it's "Unified Entertainment System" that is just the nature of marketing. But just like I can assure that drinking "X" beer isn't going to make attractive women magically surround you, major apps that TiVo doesn't say they have are also likely to not magically show up.

    In the end there is one and only one reason to buy a TiVo and that is because a person wants and is willing to pay for a DVR.

    While I am sure TiVo would love to have more streaming services and be where Roku is (over half of Roku's revenue comes from being paid by the streaming services - not the other way around as you suggested TiVo do) TiVo doesn't sell enough DVRs to justify either the streaming services or TiVo spending too much on apps. TiVo does have many major streaming services and I am sure will add more as they can, but TiVo is never going to be what Roku, AppleTV, Amazon FireTV, etc. are.

    Pretty much all of us around here have recommend buying dedicated Streaming devices if one is really into streaming. They are cheap, get refreshed more often and sell enough units to get more streaming services. I am on my third Roku (a Premiere+) and have had several other brands that are now dead and gone.

    I have been on too many systems, so I get them confused. Diana may remember.

    Was it DirecTV that had the unified list and you could filter by box if you wanted to?

    That's a pretty generic term. Maybe you could share exactly what you'd want it to do.

    Yes, DirecTV does have a unified playlist but the filtering was rather limited. You can choose to share or not what it is on a DVR and you can choose to view either your local recordings or everything shared but that is it. You cant, for example set box A to see box A,B, and C while box B sees just A and B and box D sees just C and D

    Not sure if this question has been asked before, but I haven't seen it. I have always been curious as to why the video that you're currently watching on the Tivo Mini does not remain on the screen when browsing through menus as it does on the bolt? When I'm watching live tv on the mini and I view the guide, the video stays on the screen but it does not in other menus or on the home screen. Seems strange to me.

    I think you could when they first did it then they made it dumb like you describe. My memory is shaky though.

    Press any button on the TiVo remote and the TV & soundbar turn on, and the sound bar switches to the correct input. I have a Roamio and a Roku Ultra. The Roku has the feature, but I need to jump through several hoops to watch the TiVo. I've attempted to streamline the TiVo process with a Harmony Hub but it does not get the job done. Adding CEC to the TiVo will remedy that.

    +100. I’d be happy if just hitting the TiVo button sent the CEC ‘input switch’ command.

    Thanks. There are a lot of things CEC can do so it’s good to be specific.

    And I like these. If you can turn them off. I use PIP so I don’t always want my input to switch.

    You are correct, it was better when first released but they took that ability away

    Restore "Browse by Channel" - we used to find a lot of content on the movie channels by browsing up to two weeks in the future :/

    - AUTO TUNE TO HD CHANNEL
    IF AVAILABLE.

    It knows there are HD versions available There should be an option for this and I shouldn’t have to hit D to get there

    - SELECT MULTIPLE RECORDINGS TO DELETE FROM ALL RECORDED SHOWS

    - MINIS NEEDS TO GO INTO REAL STANDBY WITH NO HDMI OUTPUT. Our tv stays on all night if we fall asleep.... minis don’t sleep like my Bolt does.

    While I agree, I use sleep timer on my TV and AVR. I have TV (older Sony) that turns off it doesn't detect motion after 30 minutes.

    Your Tv's don't have an option to go into standby after a certain amount of time with no button presses?

    No. My Vizio P series only has a shut off when there is no input setting.

    It should work like the Bolt and it doesn’t.
