    Does anyone know if there's any way to make the number keys actually work like a TV remote -- So you can enter a channel number in apps that have channel numbers like Pluto? That was the only reason I bought a Stream 4k in the first place, only to find out they do absolutely nothing. Really, it's very deceiving to put numeric keys on a device's remote that is intended for TV and it doesn't allow you to enter channel numbers. What exactly are they intended for in the first place?

    The real answer is: to make it look like other TiVo remotes. For the same reason that no other streaming device has a numeric keypad, the keypad on the TiVo remote is borderline useless.

    That said, it does do something on some apps, just not on apps that the average person cares about.

    Those buttons work with ChannelsDVR and also the HDHomeRun apps for live TV viewing. I could live without them, but it's nice to be able to enter the channel number to go directly to a channel that I want to watch.

    They also work when searching a movie/tv show title that includes numbers in the title
