TiVo Heads To Android TV? – Zatz Not Funny!
Hmmm... what does this mean.
So it has the Google Assistant button and VOD but no back button?
Given the placement and different look than my remote I think the turning arrow just below the directional pad might serve as one in the right content, possibly in addition to jumping back.
I had the same thought but the current Tivo remotes have both the back and turning arrow. Then again, I don't use Hydra so I wouldn't know if the context could be done with one button.
This is neat and exciting!
No more clunky DVR boxes, maybe TiVo finally woke up and smelt the coffee!
Or Google Assistant on Tivo?
No "(-)" button either. No OTA?
With the VOD button, it seems likely it is like a MSO box (so probably only for cable companies). Perhaps there will be a consumer version too?
No trick okay buttons. Heck no pause or play.
FF or Rew? Must be on screen and arrow over left and right?
Weird, but I kinda get it. Could be MSO, could be both. The MSO version of the Vox remote says "VOD" instead of "SKIP", so that could change.
Wondering if the circle pad is contextual. Navigation when in the UI, basic trickplay when in a video.
My guess is that this remote is almost certainly for use with the TiVo/Android TV-powered STB that TDS Telecom announced they would roll out several months back.
And, yes, and speculated above, the circular pad will handle both directional movement in menus as well as playback/trick play controls. I think that's how the remote for the Nvidia Shield Android TV box works too.
Even Roku and Apple TV have pause and play. I don’t like trick play on screen. Balky, slow and non-intuitive.
Welcome to Android TV. Most Android TV devices like the Shield don't have a play/pause button or FF/RW buttons. It is all done with the arrow keys and ok button.
The new directv now remote is going to have pause, play, ff, rewind and even a number keypad. That is android TV.
Someone has a brain and it isn’t TiVo.
The docs in the filing clearly point to TDS Telecom. There's a picture of the box as well.
That won’t be for directv now though. It will be for directv over ip
Yep. I have the new DirecTV NOW box and remote as well as a Stream+, both of which are Android TV and have transport buttons.
I'm not so sure about that. I have the box and am beta testing a DirecTV NOW app on it. If it was meant for some new DirecTV IP service, wouldn't they be testing that app instead of DirecTV NOW?
In any case, even Roku, Fire TV and Apple TV remotes have transport buttons.
Android TV supports trick play commands so any manufacturer can add them. I use a Harmony remote on my Shield Android TV and it lets you use real trick play commands even though the original doesn't.
