    Yes to all but ATT TV. I’m not seeing it and voice didn’t bring it up. Still finding my way around this.

    Just finished setting up google live channels to see my HD Homerun

    Thanks. I wasn't thinking when I put AT&T TV on the list. It's not in the Play store yet on any platform. Glad to see all those other app.

    Can you check to see if side loading is possible? To do that, go to Settings - Security and see if it's possible to turn on "unknown sources".

    Thanks again.

    I have Directv

    In the living room I access our streaming channels (Netflix, Prime, CBS, Disney, Hulu, Starz) via Firestick
    In the bedroom it's via a Roku
    In the billiard room it's via the Smart TV features.

    What would this device to that I don't already have?

    I think it does. It has a unknown sources tab and below it a toggle to Verify app and disable or warn before installation of apps that may cause harm

    Can anyone confirm it’ll get power from a USB port and not just using the wall wart?

    So besides Google which is to be expected here and Sling who they have a partnership with, the only new one here is Disney? The rest are all available in the DVRs.

    Is the integration here any BETTER than on the DVRs?

    I’d like to see Showtime and CBS All Access.

    I cannot get my stream4k remote to control my soundbar. The Tivo Bolt remote controls it just fine by inputting a code. That would be a major fail if there was no way to do that.

    It looks like someone else asked that question on Twitter. Seems like TiVo failed at this one. upload_2020-5-7_20-46-22.jpeg

    I can. It's plugged in to the USB on my Samsung and it works just fine. However, it'as my understanding that some USB ports do not have enough power and will fail.

    Gotcha. I never even used the tivo remotes when I had tivo, always Harmony's. Thought I was overlooking functionality.

    check out tivo.com. see if it does anything you're interested in that you don't have.

    This device is an AndroidTV box with a dedicated tivo app/skin that aggregates it’s supported and integrated apps together into the tivo GUI. That said, it also allows you to go into the AndroidTV main page, which looks exactly the same as an nVidia Shield and other AndroidTV devices.

    You can easily load ANY app you want to from the Google Play Store, including Disney+, AppleTV+, Channels DVR, Plex, etc. and have it available on this device. The only caveat for now is that those apps need to be opened from the AndroidTV side of things, but that’s the same as any other AndoidTV box you have now, and they aren’t yet included in the TiVo Stream app architecture until they partner with TiVo to do so.

    If it’s in the Google Play Store, it’s supported. Although it most likely isn’t integrated into the TiVo GUI app yet.

    What’s Google Live Channels?

    There is no way now, TiVo confirmed. I bet they will add it later though - it’s a software thing you won’t need new hardware.
    My ROKU doesn’t allow me to control my receiver volume either so no loss for me.

    I think it puts shows and movies in one place. IE, a show strip will show whats on from all sources. No need to leave Hulu to see Starz shows. Just whats reported, I don't have it yet. I think Sling users will get the most out of it.

    The funny thing is if we decide we like this device with Sling TV their would be no reason to keep cable and a Tivo DVR. They are cutting the bottom out of their own product.

    Can you program the receiver to accept volume commands from your TV remote then program the TiVo remote for the TV?

    I think I had to do that with a Yamaha soundbase in the past. Come to think of it, it's how my Harmony controls our Sonos Playbase right now. It thinks the Harmony remote is the TV remote.

    I bought one to check out the My Shows feature. We are all familiar with TiVo’s DVR My Shows feature that aggregates TV shows regardless of the channel. The Stream aggregates shows to a list regardless of the streaming services that provides each show.

    Even if the apps are from the same streaming service as on the DVR they will still be better than the DVR apps because the google apps are the full throated versions that receive regular updates, while the DVR apps lack many features and are not updated very frequently.
