Re: V6.airplay..

Airplay is between two Apple devices.

From, say, an iPad to an Apple TV, connected to your TV.

Re: V6.airplay..

Its for devices that are on the same network. Not specifically apple devices..i for instance can airplay to an amazonfirestick with the appropriate apps installed from my iphone..
The question is still open..

Re: V6.airplay..

I stand corrected but...

1. I suggest an appropriate app for TiVo to allow AirPlay is unlikely to happen;

2. What advantage would such a function give you over your existing AmazonFireSticky thing?

It's also a revenue protection thing - chances are quite high that money will have changed hands for Netflix, YouTube, etc... to be on the box, Adding in a generic casting option circumvents the process and that revenue stream.

Re: V6.airplay..

Can you cast to the Youtube app on the v6 from an Android/IOS device?

Re: V6.airplay..

You could do it on TiVo because the YouTube app is installed.

That's a different mechanism to the box having Airplay or Google Cast support.
