    Hi. Still in the progress of getting an older Tivo HD with Lifetime up and running which I purchased from a thrift store.

    At the moment, the only apps on the machine are Netflix and Pandora.
    Pandora works, but Netflix is broken.

    Are there supposed to be other, working apps in the menu's, such as Hulu, Youtube, etc., or are these two it?

    thanks

    I believe the only working TiVo provided apps are Netflix and Pandora. That is all that is left on mine.

    I think you can still use community apps from a custom app server.

    It's been a while since I've had a TiVo set up to the server. There are some threads on this forum though. Do a search for enterwebz.tv

    interesting - found it, entered their server and things appeared. Although, the interface is crude and meant for something other than Tivo, and many things such as radio and video feeds just didn't seem to work.

    but it's interesting the option exists if better sources can be found

    I connect my 70TB tv collection to my tivoHD using pytivo.

    It makes the collection look like a Tivo Desktop machine full of programs
    You can even put in metadata in a txt file for each show.

    What's the status of Hulu for the S3? Is it at all obtainable and functional?

    no it isn't. Tivo pulled it and changed the menu item from 'Video on demand' to 'Netflix'
