    Just got the TiVo Stream 4K. Enjoying learning what it can do but notice that in the guide some of the native (not Sling) channels don't seem to work. If I click them I get a full screen Tivo+ logo briefly and then return to the guide. Some channels work as expected, others not. Ideas?

    I'm guessing you're doing OTA? If so, they kinda borked it with the last update. Unfortunately there is no option to adjust decoding in the app. Channels DVR has an option to choose software decoding for the player which is a temporary workaround until they fix the hardware decoding. You can always do the free trial and cancel before you get charged if you need a quick fix, otherwise you're stuck waiting for the next update which will hopefully be sooner than later.

    No, not OTA just the streaming channels that show up natively on the guide. Newsmax TV is one of the ones that doesn't work, for example. Voyager Documentaries is another. These channels show up on the guide with a little Tivo+ icon by them. Many of them work just fine, but a few never seem to do anything except flash the full screen Tivo+ logo and then return to the guide.

    Update: Looks like the two channels I was asking about are no longer on the guide. I guess they were in the process of going away and the listings just hadn't updated yet.

    I think they are in the process of adding some new channels. I am guessing they got added to the guide prematurely. Probably will get added within a few weeks.
