    Is this the lowest price it has been since it was released?

    Yes, but they haven't really fixed much in terms of bugs. Basically just 1 update since release.

    Still not worth it for that price. Its a botched up Streamer with no fixes in sight.

    Yet many seem to be fairly happy with it. Go figure.

    Pay your money and take your choice. I choose TS4K for one TV .. and CCGTV for the other .. So far, TS4K has the edge because of the remote. $40 seems well worth it to me.

    I got the CCGTV and the TS4K and still ended up reverting back to Fire Stick 4K which is snappier and more reliable for me.

    I also have an Apple TV4k along with those others. The Fire Stick 4k and the ATV4k just always work with no problems. Fast and dependable.

    If I needed another one, I'd jump on that $39 dollar deal: Both of my TS4Ks have been reliable and perform well.

    Most of the stuff I am unhappy with really is not the fault of the TS4K. Lack of Atmos or at least DD+ I have learned is almost always a fault of the provider...not the streamer. Black screen and lack of Android home page has been fixed. This little streamer has been solid for the past month. My biggest issue is I cant keep track of my weekly shows other than Star Trek and Mandalorian.

    The ChromecastGTV works fine as a streaming device, but I hate the remote every time I pick it up. I still get several seconds of a black loading screen too, when I return to the home screen. I've actually starting using some voice commands with it from my Google hub to avoid using the remote. If the 4k Fire sticks would control the audio on my AVR, I would go back to it.

    I really really like the TS4K on my 1080p office tv, but until they fix the HDR switching, it's a no go as my primary device.

    I had an Amazon gift card, so I just ordered this. I'm not sure how or if it is better than anything else out there. I have a Firestick.
    The marketing of it is lost on me between the old Stream and this new one and any other "stick" out there.
    Does this allow you to stream from your Tivo DVR's, as well?
    I know you probably think these are dumb questions. I've read through this thread and elsewhere, but still don't quite get it.

    No other streaming stick has the Tivo remote. To me, that is worth the price. You'll soon discover that this "Tivo Dongle device" has nothing to do with Tivo DVR's. But it does a nice job streaming Netflix, Prime, Disney+, HBO/Max etc. for me.

    Ahhh, okay. Shoot, about it not streaming from a Tivo DVR. Good point about the remote because the firestick remote is really bad.

    Do the number keys on the remote work for entering in numbers in the streaming apps? Lots of the streaming apps only seem to accept input through their on-screen keyboard where you have to use the arrow keys to move around on screen. Like if you had numbers in your YouTube login, could you press the numbers on the remote or would you have to use the arrow keys to move the number spots on the on-screen keyboard? And for apps which have numbered channels (like PlutoTV), can you jump to a channel by using the remote numpad?

    I bought one on a whim and set it up today. Jury is still out. I like the concept of all my shows in one app, to but it doesn't support everything.

    We love YouTube TV, and don't see us switching to sling. I'm not even sure if they are really comparable services.

    I also wanted more of the old TiVo interface that I loved instead of huge thumbnails of shows... I prefer a list, and then episodes.

    I didn't spend a lot of time with it before I went back to my roku.

    Sling is expensive. I don't need all those channels. That's why I dropped cable and went with Tivo OTA.

    You can still use Youtube TV, you are not forced to use Sling

    I don't use Youtube TV, either. I don't feel I need it. So, I will mostly be using the device for Netflix and DisneyPlus which I pay for, and Hulu and Prime, which I get through my mobile plan.
