    So what exactly does the search search? I was watching Looper on SyFy over my FireTV on Sling.

    I switched over to my Stream and did a voice search for Looper from the Android TV screen. It displayed the correct movie description displayed open TiVo. And all it did was open the TiVo. I tried again and the TiVo app listed to watch Looper on prime and Google play movies. It didn't show it was on Sling. I just wonder how it is supposed to work.

    How are you getting voice search?

    I guess the op should select guide and go to the syfi channel.

    Search is working fine for me but I don't use Sling. I'm getting links to open in the TiVo app or various streaming sources including content in Plex/Emby.

    edit: I'm speaking of native search, not inside TiVo app. Sorry!

    It is linked. Search is not as universal as it says.
