Order 220XX. Hopefully that means they already sold 22k units.
I assume it will work since it is Android, but YTTV will not be fully integrated into the guide. It will just be a regular app you can use.
If I could use it in place of a TiVo Mini, then I might consider one. Otherwise I don't know that I really need one of these at this time. I've got plenty of streaming options built in or available through other devices that I already bought and introducing another means getting others in the household to consider learning how to use whatever the newest is. They already have enough issues figuring out the ones that were already here, mostly getting lost in how to switch from TiVo (Live TV or recorded) over to use of the streaming devices and vice versa.
Have 3 of these on the way. Why not?
Best case, it kicks butt and replaces our Apple TVs.
Worst case, I've got a couple of Chromecast sticks with kick-ass remotes.
I've peed away $150 on way worse things.
For someone like myself who has only streamed from devices made for other purposes, ie..Samsung TV , Tivos, TLC TV,. This will be the first device I bought strictly for streaming (and dvr integration!!) so Im kinda excited. Mine has shipped.
Does it have e multiple profiles?

Right. As long as this has Google Play Store access (it appears to) - this could be a full replacement for my Fire Stick. With a much better interface, better remote and will get better over time.
I'm looking forward to it.
It was (somewhat) helpful to see the user manual to understand how this works in the context of AndroidTV. Basically TiVo Stream is an App in the main AndroidTV interface that the Tivo Button on the remote automatically opens. Besides that, it appears to be regular AndroidTV running.
What's not clear is what streaming services are actually integrated into the guide/stream app. Are other premium cable/streaming apps like Showtime, Starz integrated? The TiVo Stream product page at: TiVo Stream 4K | Make your favorite apps feel like TV only lists Netflix and Prime specifically, although Hulu does appear in some of the Videos.
I'm looking forward to hearing everything that y'all are going to say about it first, based on use after having received it--from what I can tell, that free-for-all should start right about 24 hours from now.
Ya' think? That would be a nice use for the Amazon gift cards I have.
The remote almost looks like the Amazon swag foam remote.
so I’ve looked around a little bit. Not sure I found the answer. Will this work with your existing Tivos and let you watch recorded shows from them? In essence could this replace the Mini?
Not currently. Although TiVo's CEO said, back in January, something like, that's something to look into/consider. (Some of us instead think, it should have been looked into/considered earlier and be there now.)
This has been asked several times -- the short answer is no. Perhaps in the future it will support such features, but there has been no confirmation of that since TiVo scrapped their development of apps for Roku, AndroidTV, etc.
I've ordered, recently switched back to an optical audio setup which has a 3 yr old known issue (high pitch noise switching from Dolby to PCM) with Vizio TVs using an Nvidia Shield.
Anyway, was in market for a new streamer and I absolutely miss the peanut remote! Input button on the remote of the streaming device...!
TiVo posted a video which demos the "My Shows" feature today...
First I can't order because it thinks I'm in the Middle East. Thought I'd try again and now I just get an error and it won't add to cart.
They can't even program the sale properly. This thing will be full of errors.
I think it's crazy that they would integrate "Live TV" from Sling, but have absolutely no support for their own existing Tivo DVRs. They already have an Android app, and could have just integrated some of those features for starters.
Since this is an Android TV device, will it be possible to install the existing Tivo app from the play store?
