    I got this from Plex today and I can’t think of an older app than what is on out TiVo’s. I have been curious when they would update - but now I am starting to think it is just going to die.

    It looks like Plex hasn’t actively supported the TiVo app for a while. Here’s a support page from December 2019: Which Smart TV models are supported? | Plex Support

    Not supported doesn’t mean it won’t work but there’s no guarantee how long it will continue.

    I use Plex on my 8 month old LG. I hope that’s not considered “older”. Edit: shoulda read the link, I’m fine.
    I kinda sounds like it will stop working because of security?

    It will stop working because TiVo has stopped building their base and working with OTT providers.

    You think Plex will be the last provider to decide Tivo isn’t worth the trouble?

    I haven't used the Plex app or any app on Tivo or my Smart TV for years. They are just too dang slow and cumbersome. I only use it on my Amazon Fire Stick. I won't miss it if it leaves Tivo.
