    In theory you can point it to ntlord.github.io, and connect via myplex. But during testing, this did not work for everyone

    Add it as an app in the opera dev portal

    So it should work if you add as an app. It works on mine. But, I can't get any sites to open in URL Loader. They really crippled it.

    So if I submit that link as if it is an app I am developing, it will show up as an app on my Tivo? If I have my own webserver, can I just post it instead?

    Yes it will show up as a separate app under the develop tab. You cannot use your own internal web server, it will only work for external web servers (tivo disabled this). If you are worried about privacy or something, note the ntlord.github.io website though stores no information, all of the magic happen in javascript within your local browser.

    The one issue you might have is NAT loopback being disabled in your router. (discussed a few pages back in this thread). I don't believe all routers are affected, but part of the issue is that some routers disable for security reasons direct requests to your external IP from your internal network, which PlexTivo needs to be able to contact your plex server via my plex. This is not something I can really help you with other than to say that you may be able to tweak some settings in your router to get it to work.

    So it looks like I have to submit graphics for the app, and a description, etc. I am in the correct place? I'm not wanting to publish for public consumption.

    Yes, but you don't need to submit graphics. It will be private, only to your dev account.

    I am Developing a HTML5 application with media streaming content and integrated the Google html5 IMA SDK for ad playing at intervals. When I tested it on Opera tv store of Tivo Roamio I noticed that the Ads are played altogether in a different Video DOM object in a separate Iframe container . Now the issue is the Opera TV Store crashes at an inconsistent interval while Ads are playing i.e there are no particular scenarios as such .For instance 2 or 3 ads may be played in between and after that it may crash for fourth one.

    I needed to know whether Google IMA SDK is not supported for opera TV SDK, if not then any other alternative solution, Or could this be an issue with the Device .

    I don't know. But, this doesn't surprise me. There was a lot of "guess/check" work that I did to get the Plex client working. The web client is very finicky.

    Been following this and the Plex forums trying to find out if or when the app will be offered on tivo. Well, I finally got the answer from a Opera employee that is a Plex follower.
    The Plex app will be offered when Tivo updates in April.

    Any idea if that is via the Opera store platform or a new streaming service at the same level as Netfix / Amazon?

    via opera store as far as I was told. It was an Opera employee that gave us the info.

    I really wish it was a separate application like the Netflix since I don't relish having to g into My Opera Apps every time I want Plex but it is better than no app.

    Good news. Especially, because frankly I just don't have that much time to devote to this in the near future. However, from what I can tell from the plex forums, the app is far from ready for the prime time. If only tivo made their platform more open, we could have really had a nice app with my PlexTivo app.

    Edit: This also doesn't not surprise me that tivo needs an update. Like I've said before the security settings for the opera browser are super locked down on the tivo, so I would think that Plex would need some tweaks to make itself work. It would be freaking amazing though if Plex integrated with onepass.

    Best possible scenario is for TiVo to "promote" the app to a streaming service provider and integrate it into OnePass - maybe once is matures a little bit.

    This will give the Plex developers more time to get t right. The app is in Alpha now.

    Shameless plug, as an interim option till we have a fully opera plex app, you can serve plex to tivo through an HMO interface:
    https://github.com/wr0ngway/tivohmo

    Not as good as having full plex app with thumbnails, etc, but it does the job, and is now my daily driver for getting video from plex to tivo

    I guess since I am a newbie, I cannot PM, so here is what I was going to ask offline (looks like I cannot have anything that looks like a link as well, spam control):


    I was wondering if you had some suggestion on how I can figure out this error message I see after spawning the tivohmo Server (I haven't modified any of the settings in /etc/tivohmo.yml}:

    .163 is the TiVo Roamio, 242 is my Plex Server that I am running tivohmo executable on.

    On a side note, I just had to spawn the executable after I setuid on the executable since I didn't have a /etc/init.d/tivohmo service script, the service call fails.
