    Found that Tivo Stream 4K does not work well with older Vizio TV HDMI inputs. Keeps defaulting to the HDMI port its hooked up to and turns on the TV

    I had, though with a bit of work, good luck when I followed the instructions in this post. No need to follow the parts that are specifically about remote pairing, but once you get through the getting into the shell program, go to the section on turning off the Stream's CEC.

    Here's How To Disable Tivo's Automatic Remote Programming

    Minor tweaks over the past few days, but no major additional items.

    Closed out 64 for black screen on Android homescreen and 63 for CEC turning on television automatically.

    Added 67 for DTS, 68 for Plex playback flashing, and 69 for floating keyboard disappearing when you attach a BT or USB keyboard/mouse.

    The floating Keyboard disappears when programming a Harmony Hub Remote to recognize the Stream as a Nvidia Shield. It uses Bluetooth to do this; hence, #69.

    @Liam Bresnahan, I already sent this to tivopm on Reddit who said they would be reviewing it all and getting back to me, but seemed worthwhile to send your way as well. Also, worth pushing back to the top for new people coming in with the same items and creating new posts.

    thank you @babsonnexus - fortunately, I'm very aware of the discussion on Reddit, do not worry.

    Good list. For me personally, the search features is pretty broken at the moment. It rarely finds things across all my subs that I know are there. It's slightly better if I search by title directly, but it still comes up short all the time. It's even worse when you want to search by category such as "Show me Anime". The return results will often show things on Hulu and YouTube, but nothing from other places like Netflix, which has a ton of anime.

    In general, I'd want the search feature to strictly limit itself to the apps I have active. I don't need or want to see results that I'd have to rent or that are not available at all to immediately play.

    It would also be fantastic if free TV like Tivo+ and Tubi would actually make use of the remotes numeric pad. It's annoying having to scroll through the list of channels every time; this isn't the 1980's with crappy cable boxes.

    Im missing the keyboard when trying to do a search on most apps. Perhaps it happen when I setup harmony hub to control it. It took so much time to setup I hate to remove that keyboard but without a search keyboard its worthless.
