    The Bolt will not stream 4K HEVC from Amazon or Netfilx either at the moment. Something is not working on the Bolt end for 4k. Cannot push the files with pytivo either. At the moment, Bolt is not 4k capable.

    4K Netflix works just fine for me though - Narcos, Lawrence of Arabia, etc.

    How much 4K content does Netflix have?

    Has anyone tried Hockeystreams 0.9? I can finally get Plex on the Tivo to play.

    On the Roamio, I can now play on-demand with Direct Play enabled, but on the Mini I had to disable Direct Play to show on-demand games.

    For live games, I had to disable Direct Streams to play on Roamio, but live games will not play on the Mini with Direct Stream enabled or disabled.

    Hockeystreams uses different formats for live versus on-demand. I think on-demand is MP4 but don't know what the live format is.

    Why do the Roamio and Mini behave differently?

    Am trying to adjust my TiVo Bolt+ H264 limit to direct play 3840x1920 4K Level 5.1 video at 18.7 Mbps via ethernet. It was previously 4.1 (Recommended) by default. When you change this H264 limit setting, is it necessary to restart the Tivo Plex client app?

    Just an update to say the Plex for the Tivo Mini VOX has been released and I can verify it supports up to 1080p with 6 channel ac3 audio. Discussions on plex forum show they are still working on HEVC and UHD support for both Bolt and Mini VOX

    Cool. Since the Bolt VOX is basically the Bolt+ with unnecessary voice features, I assume these UHD and HEVC capabilities will be available for Bolt+ also. Have been tempted to pick up a Mini VOX just to use on a 4K TV.

    Yes, the feature set for Bolt, Bolt+ and Mini Vox 4k are all the same for Plex. At least so far.

    The hardware of the Bolt VOX and Bolt+ is basically the same aside from the Bluetooth and voice remote if I recall correctly. Which would make sense since you can add the VOX capabilities to an existing Bolt/Bolt+. However the Mini VOX hardware is clearly upgraded.

    I'm curious, does your "->|" button work in Plex music? It does on my Bolts, but not on my Mini VOX. I can't find any way to skip forward a song with the remote, short of hitting a button to clear the screen saver, navigating to the skip button on the UI, selecting the skip button on the UI. Is it just mine, or is the released app just broken?

    I have not used music on plex in some time and have not tried it at all on the new mini Vox but now that you ask, I will try and remember to do so and check the skip button functionality as well. I have the library loaded, just not my normal listening venue.

    Thanks for checking. Hopefully the Plex guys fix that. I have a bug report on a post over there about this with no reply.
