    I have several different streamers and the Fire TV Stick 4K is a very close 2nd to the ATV4K. It always looks and sounds very good. Once you get used to the layout it's a breeze to use. Amazon has a cheap and really good product there.

    I think you can side load those apps on the Fire TV.

    Did TiVo halt this update? While removing developer access sucks, I am having CEC issues and I actually wanted to install this firmware update on one of my devices but when I try it says my device is up to date even though I do not have the latest.

    Yes, tivopm replied in a post on reddit, that they had halted the rollout to fix the problems.

    Developer Options PIN Code Fix - Beta Testers Wanted

    Hi All,

    As I mentioned we've been working on fixes for all the issues you've given us feedback on. Today we're going to make available a fix for the Developer Options issue (Developer Options is restricted by a PIN code) to our *Beta* population. This is before it goes wider to the overall population.

    We would love your feedback on this, if you'd like to be part of the beta, please pm me directly with your email address and I can get you invited to this and future betas.

    We will be making this available to the wider population as soon as we can, but would like to make sure we have inputs from the beta community before we do this.

    Vudu works with atmos. So it is definitely the apps and not the stream4k. If the app is tvo ready, atmos will work. Plus Vudu makes it easy to determine atmos selections.

    new updates from a reddit post:

    Live TV from Pluto TV and Locast is now on Stream 4K, plus firmware fixes!
    [​IMG]
    This morning, the TiVo team enabled Pluto TV Linear (live TV) and Locast as 2 more fully integrated content providers on the Stream 4K platform! You can now find all your favorite Pluto TV and Locast live channels in the Stream experience.

    For those users who haven't downloaded the Pluto TV or Locast apps yet, you can install both from the Play Store to do this please follow the steps below and enable it in your TiVo Stream app:

    • Go to Android TV home -> Apps -> Get More Apps, search for and download Pluto TV
    • Within the TiVo Stream app, you can select Pluto TV from My Streaming Services by going to TiVo Stream -> Settings -> My Streaming Services and selecting Pluto TV and/or Locast
    • When first launching the Pluto TV or Locast app, you may be required to sign in or register, please log in as needed
    We also rolled out an updated firmware to 10% of the population that includes all the fixes from last month as well as fixes for the HDHomeRun/Channels DVR issues and Developer options issues. EDIT: the build number for this new firmware is v4896 Looking forward to any feedback you all have.

    So does this mean if you have a SlingTV subscription and you pair it with Locast that you’ll finally have a local Network option integrated into the TS4K’s Guide together and directly tunable? Are the Locast channels “recordable”?

    This would be great if so, because the integration with Sling’s AirTV tuner for locals sucked and was essentially non-existent.

    I think the Channels DVR software, that will run on a TS4K, can record from locast.

    Yes it can. I am using Channels DVR. I’m curious if it can be integrated into the TiVo architecture of the TS4K’s Stream app.
