David Tenant and Stephen Fry are under selling Virgin Media’s Tivo box, at least in the YouTube department.
Shortly after getting our Tivo we had a quick look at the YouTube app and quickly dismissed it as being to clumsy to use with a remote control. After having a play with it for a while I realised I could not be more wrong. This is the best thing since…Spanish Tortilla
In short you can pair one or more Phones or Tablets to it and use it to queue and play videos. Its all very impressive stuff.
On Tivo open the YouTube App ,Go down to “My YouTube” , Go right until get to “Pairing”. This will give you a Pairing Code and QR Code
There are there options on Android:
YouTube application – Open the YouTube app and go to a video, once it starts playing hit your menu key and go to Add YouTube TV, Enter the pairing code displayed on screen and any name of the screen. This is so you can have multiple screens attached and select between them.
YouTube Remote – Download the YouTube Remote app then scan the QR Code and open choose to open it with YouTube Remote.
YouTube Mobile website – See Below
iOS & Anything Else
Open the internet browser on your device and go to youtube.com/pair , you should get the mobile version which will ask for a Pairing Code and a name.
Once you have done that when you go to play a video from the YouTube mobile website you should see a little red screen symbol. When you start the video it should display on the TV rather than your device.
