    Interesting, so they are hosting the production website on force.com with vanity URL (Salesforce application environment) and this is the non-vanity URL (or pre-production environment even though it says tivoproduction)?

    @ntlord - some of us were having trouble launching your version of Plex based network permissions I expect. With the changes TiVo is introducing to get the sponsored Plex app to work, do you think that will fix the connectivity issues with your app?

    (I am sure the sponsored Plex app is fine, and I am not suggesting you continue supporting yours)

    Not sure. I'll have to wait until I get it on my tivo. I think there is a good chance the network permissions might be fixed.

    I received Plex today, and it is nice... That said, NTLords version was better...

    Are we able to still use his version? I haven't messed with it in awhile.

    You can, it is a little bit of a hack to get up and running - but yes, last time I tried it was working fine.

    In what ways was NTLord's version better? Just curious. Thanks!

    NTLords was a different layout. One click and you were in a grid of your content. The grid was a fixed number of rows wide and N rows deep.

    This layout tries to create quick discovery groupings with a few movies and a click through to the rest of that group. I find myself going straight to the grid - so that is kind of a wasted click. Top movies, top unwatched movies, continue watching, recently viewed. It's my personal content, not sure all that is necessary.

    The grid view in this layout is 2 rows high and N rows wide. visually you get a lot less content on the screen at one time.

    Less clicks? Probably a wash...

    It looks like this is the standard Smart TV layout, and most likely the "modern design version"

    Frankly, navigation and screen refresh is too lagy to get fancy with the UI.

    I haven't gotten it yet, but appreciate the kind words. I always wished I could take this project further, unfortunately, given the restrictions placed on Tivo development, it just really wasn't possible.

    Just an FYI - setup does not ask you to enter a username / password. It provides a code a that you are required to enter on Plex authentication web page.

    Ultimately, I think it works the same way. The username/pass thing is only used to get a token from the plex servers. The code thing, I suspect works the same way.

    Does the version here play more video file formats without transcode, than the official app?

    I got the official Plex app on my Suddenlink Tivo Premiere and Suddenlink Tivo Mini. The interesting part is that it allows the Mini to stream videos. I was unable to get HME video streaming apps to stream video on the Mini, the apps would allow selecting videos just wouldn't stream the video.

    Nope. My version transcoded pretty much everything except if something was already an .mp4
