    I haven't had any reboots or black screens since disabling the TiVo row customization. This *should be* something they can fix quick...

    Wow, just discovered this myself. Couldn't figure out why I was topping off at 30 hz. Disabled Dolby Vision and now I have more options. But then it won't PLAY in Dolby Vision.

    So I either have to pick DV or HDR. Seems silly when Netflix is DV, and Amazon and others are HDR.

    I was using my FireTV for HDR content and the Netflix app on my TV for DV and I was hoping this device would do both. Guess not.

    IS this an issue with the TV not being able to use DV above 30Hz? My Stream 4K has had no issues with DV and 60Hz.

    With the forced HDR I have only been watching content with DV. And then switching the setting to HDR10. At least this way I can view the content properly. But then the menus are annoying since they are too bright.

    isnt this device a poor attempt at what the tivo edge for OTA should be? I dont have one but does the edge for OTA run slingtv app? and integrate the channels into the guide? If so then I dont see the point in this dongle. If not then why the heck not?

    I've setup a second Stream last night, actually using it now and My Shows is synced with the first unit I setup two days ago. This includes "Recently Watched" on the home tab of the TiVo app too. If I get motivated I'll see how quickly changes between the two are syncing.

    Not sure which thread we are discussing this in but just used TiVo app/My Shows to open American Gods on Prime and it took me right to the episode list. It did not do this last time I tried.

    From my experience from TiVo app it works if the Prime app is completely closed before you attempt to jump to it. If you leave Prime app running then next time I tried to launch a specific Prime App from TiVo app it doesn't work. From Reelgood app I have not been able to launch to a specific Prime show at all.

    Glad it helped. I just went back to the main TV, shows added an hour or so ago were there so I added one on the main, immediately went downstairs and it was synced.
    I'm sure that experience could depend on how well TiVo's servers are working on a given day but looking good so far.

    BTW, if you choose a IMDB title from the Prime app, you wont get commercials. But you will get a lesser quality stream slightly stretched. Example- Dallas OS tv series and Dukes Of Hazzard TV series- compare it from this app to the FTV stream.

    I say F em and just get the DVDs on to a server and stream them with Kodi.

    Interesting did you personalize at the beginning or just skip all that I don’t think my streams are syncing

    Signed into TiVo account, selected a few titles to help with recommendations or whatever. That's all I did.

    This could be right. I checked the only other device I have for DV content, which is an app on my tv and it shows at 24hz.

    Thanks for that, I initially assumed all the ports on the Sony XBR would handle and 'enhanced HDMI' signal, but for some dumb reason, only ports 2 and 3. Once plugged into port 2, the Stream 4k will do 4k @ 60hz with DV enabled. So at least that is better. Still bums me out that it won't auto switch between DV and HDR though. Thanks!

    Couple of questions (mine is on order and I’m waiting).

    1. Has anyone connected a hard drive to the Tivo Stream 4K? I’ve got 2 or 3TBs of movies on external hard drives I’ve connected to the Roku Ultras I have.

    2. How does pause, fast forward , and rewind work on the Tivo remote? Not seeing those buttons on there and have seen some people complaining about that on here.

    Thanks

    I received my TiVo Stream 4k today. First thing I did is disable Tivo Stream app and that removes it from the top of the home screen. App does return if device is rebooted but can be disabled again.
