    I will look at it, but I have similar feelings - I really am not looking for another subscription service. Maybe I can find a one month free offer to try it out? :)

    Frankly, I would much rather have an updated PyTiVO / Tivo to go solution that brings the new HD screens and MRS than another separate app... Sigh

    Note: it looks like most of these new apps start as Plex Pass only for a period of time and then transition to free. No guarantees this will eventually be free to use, however that seems to be the trend for PLEX. When it shows up, I will probably sign up for a 1 month pass just to play with it.

    One of the articles did mention that the Plex Pass requirement is only temporary.

    Features generally come to Plex Pass first, then are made free later. The Plex developers consider the Plex Pass as a form of project support..users pay to get early access and the developers get a dedicated pool of testers before a feature goes wider. Not saying you should/shouldn't buy one, or that the feature will definitely make it's way to the free product, just FYI. :)

    I didn't see it last night and I haven't heard anyone definitively indicating they had either.

    Plex has said it's not yet usable/available for the Tivo opera store yet.

    Well I guess that settles this. I'll be interested to see how Plex deal with some of the restrictions I ran into regarding IP addresses when I developed my app.

    Until it actually hits the TiVo Opera store I wouldn't give up on this. It's been a very useful app, especially for Minis which don't work with TTG or StreamBaby.

    If someone has the app working on their Sony TV or bluray player, I'd love to figure out the URL it is hitting to access the application. I could then take a look at how they are doing a few things.

    I ask, because I think myplex would be difficult to get working given the restrictions specific to the tivo regarding URLs. Maybe that is why it is delayed on the tivo.

    Thanks,

    ntlord

    I have installed everything.
    A - PREREQUISITES :up:
    B - REGISTERING A TIVO OR MINI WITH OPERA TV :up:
    C - INSTALL PLEX MEDIA SERVER IF YOU DON'T ALREADY HAVE IT RUNNING :up:
    D - TIVO PLEX CLIENT INSTALLATION :thumbsdown:
    E - RUN A WEB SERVER ON YOUR COMPUTER :up:
    F - READY TO RUN :up:

    I see my library through a web browser and Tivo, but when I play a video it is a blank screen. Photos work fine. Any suggestions? If I need to place the tivo.xml files where? It looks like this is a windows only step.

    It needs to be done for all platforms. You need to put the tivo.xml files in your Plex profiles directory. Then reboot plex.

    720p is the max the Opera Browser can handle without dropping frames or crashing.

    As of today this solution stopped working for me. It had been working fine for weeks.

    Now when I go to the URL loader and attempt to load my URL I get an error message that says:

    "For security reasons, not all links are available through this TV app."

    This was working flawlessly for weeks. What gives?

    I have the exact same issue starting last night. Does this mean Tivo is no longer approved for Opera TV development?

    Any information would be appreciated!!

    Maybe they've booted this solution in favor of the "official" Plex for Opera client that's being made compatible for TiVo soon?

    Do other Opera apps continue to work on TiVo, or is it just this Plex HTML5 one that's complaining now?

    Mission...
    TiVo has gone out of their way on numerous occasions to thwart 3rd party development. At one point it was possible to launch html pages on Opera browser directly, without having to sign up as Opera Developer and use URL launcher. TiVo shut that down a while back and community eventually discovered the Developer backdoor. Now looks like they've closed that access too. Thanks TiVo as always!

    I wouldn't be shocked if at some point they even closed down 3rd party HME apps as well (like streambaby).
