    And as if I needed another reason to hate using Plex, it's apparently "down for maintenance". I had no idea this could even happen, I thought I was running a *local* Plex server. This is infuriating. Fingers, toes, eyes, and everything else crossed that TiVo actually re-enables HME apps on Roamio.

    Plex came back up again last night eventually, but now that I know it depends on their service being up - *even though I run a local Plex server* - I want to stop using it for anything ASAP. Just eagerly waiting to hear about a fix of some kind for HME from TiVo.

    This is because your system isn't set up for local access. Under the advanced area of Settings --> Network you can add a list of IP addresses that are allowed without authenticating.

    You can also use the server for DLNA access for times when internet is down.

    Plex.TV was down for about an hour and a half. It didn't affect my client due to local cache and the above tweaks.

    Resolved - A good portion of PMS servers didn't respond immediately when trying to notify them, this linked to a bug we had on the failsafe code overloaded our background jobs and brought the systems down. Code has been fixed.

    Identified - An unforeseen issue upgrading notifications code caused connectivity issues with PMS servers that went past our threshold limits.

    More info on how to use Plex without internet is here.

    Very nice! Thanks for that. At least now I know I'll have a local fallback that will always work!

    There was a post here that 20.7.4 fixes local HME app problem. My Elite unit got 20.7.4 in last day or 2 and so I fired up streambaby and went looking for it on Elite. Initially I didn't see it under apps, so I restarted HDUI (thumbs down, thumbs up, play, play) and then streambaby did indeed show up under the "apps" menu. So it does look like TiVo actually fixed it at least for now. If this is last UI update before Hydra then hopefully if one chooses not to go with Hydra (me being one of those) then the capability should stick around for a long time.

    Very good to see they put it back. There never was any good reason to remove the functionality other than spitefulness. Glad to see it was just a bug that got fixed. Good show Tivo.

    FYI my Roamio got 20.7.4 this morning and same story there - after starting streambaby and doing an HDUI reset I can see it in Apps menu now.

    My Bolt was updated and after restarting HDUI (thumbs down, thumbs up, play, play) streambaby showed up under apps. Yay.
    Still waiting on my Roamios for the update.
