    Has anyone got TiVo+ to work on a A93 Mini?

    Mine just freezes completely at the Accept TOS page. I can’t do anything.

    I don’t really care to watch anything but if they’re going to shove this on my device, I’d at least like to be able to get past the TOS acceptance page.

    Maybe they should have tested better.

    Even your Mini finds it unacceptable.

    The Mini shows much more intelligence than most users - it actually READ the terms, and it refuses to accept them.

    You are mixing two different subjects and threads.

    The information you ask for is documented over and over in the treads about the pre-roll commercials.

    THIS thread is about the nasty TiVo+ ads that are being stuck all over the place in the Guide listings. TiVo has repeatedly stated to customers that they will do absolutely NOTHING to remove the TiVo+ garbage, and they do not care about the problems that any customer sees with their TiVo functionality that is related to TiVo+ or the Guide ads.

    I did submit a customer device ticket for my Mini freezing and not being able to use TiVo+

    I don’t expect much of a resolution but I want it on the record that they pushed me a feature that is unusable.

    TiVo support told me to reboot. Big help.

    Several days ago I blacklisted mm1.tivoservice.com, rebooted TiVo and after it was back up for a few minutes I removed the blacklist (when blacklisted TiVo tries to endlessly connect every 10 seconds) and I have yet to have any ads in the guide. Previously I did the same and for a day or so they were gone - haven't figured how they came back but this time they are still missing after a much longer period of time.

    If they ever come back I'll leave it blacklisted and see how that goes... anyway if they really "bother" you the above can offer some relief.

    I had the same experience. The Mini can't handle any other apps like Hulu or Prime, so it comes as no surprise that it can't handle Tivo+ either.

    Is everybody else getting the same Tivo+ content?

    What I get is just a bunch of Filmrise streaming channels that are on a 24 hour content loop; same stuff every 24 hours. No title info, no streaming control, no VOD, No guide.

    Is this really what Tivo+ was designed to be? IMO, they could have simply added a Pluto app and had something far better.

    No big deal as far as I am concerned. Tivo is my DVR, and Roku is used for everything else.

    Wasn't Tivo the first box to stream Netflix?

    Now PLEX has added free movies & tv
    TiVo+ is in a very crowded field

    And a lot of it is FilmRise content, thus a lot of overlap.

    If I didn’t read the Plex announcement I would not of known that they had added the service. I believe you have to opt in to get it.

    Plex has no ads on my homepage no ads within my individual TV and movie screens and no ads if I decide to remove the Plex movies/TVs from my app.

    Only if you decide to watch any of these movies or TV shows on PLEX will you get ads.

    Plex knows how to do it right.

    Has anyone else’s TiVo+ guide entries disappeared? Hooray!

    I called TiVo support earlier today about an issue with my Bolt freezing up and rebooting when selecting one of these new entries from the guide (AFV). They told me just to not select these new entries until they get the issue fixed. I asked if there was any way for them to remove these from my guide in the meantime and they said no.

    Well an hour later I noticed they were completely gone from my guide. I checked and my box had just performed a service connection. So I guess they figured out a way to remove them. :)

    I was *just* describing this in another thread. Maybe it's worth calling them back because it's definitely making my Bolt hard reset.

    Has anyone else gotten them removed, or is it maybe regional or a one-off?

    I remember when they added Netflix to my Tivo HD. Tivo then proceeded to lose millions of retail customers. Not sure why Tivo keeps pursuing adding streaming content.

    Since a few days ago I have no TiVo+ guide entries on any of my TiVos running TE4.
