This is Awesome!
I am currently running Pure Nexus on my Nexus 6! Pure Nexus is my first ever custom rom flash and I have felt no need to try any others as it does everything I want / need! (My Nexus 6 is my first Android device, coming from many years of IOS. Haven't looked back since!)
I now own a Nexus 7 and a Nexus Player. I was about to flash Pure Nexus to my Nexus 7, and I thought I would check to see if maybe, just maybe it was available for the Nexus Player as well. Sure as Hell! It is! WOOT!

I will be flashing here in a bit and I will update later with what I think! You guys rock!

EDIT: Do I have to use PureNexus Recovery or is TWRP okay?

Do I have to use PureNexus Recovery or is TWRP okay ?

I'm a keyboard/mouse combo user...
does the leanback launcher has the mouse support ?
(there's a modded launcher that has)

Actually I'm using Stock Marshmallow ROM (with root) removing Leanback Launcher and using Nova Launcher
then I installed a Modded Leanback Launcher with Mouse Support.
I have a Logitech K400 keyboard+trackpad so using leanback launcher with arrow keys is not so funny...
I prefer to use mostly Standard Android Launcher but I want to have the opportunity to use leanback launcher.

I see the app drawer on leanback launcher
is it a mod to the launcher or an android setting ?
What If I use my leanback launcher with mouse support ?

What do you suggest ?

I am running it right now. It is working great for me so far and I haven't run into any issues.

I used TWRP to flash it. I did a full wipe in TWRP, placed the ROM and Gapps Zip's in the TWRP folder via micro USB cable hooked to my computer, then installed. So you do not have to use the Pure Nexus Recovery if you don't want to. I used TWRP because that is what I have on my Nexus 6 and Nexus 7.
(I run Pure Nexus on my 6 and 7 as well)

I am running Pure Nexus on my Nexus Player now. I also use the Logitech K400, and it is working just like on stock. You have to use arrow keys when in the home menu. Tapping the trackpad and clicking the left and right click does nothing.
However, you do get full functionality in the app drawer! Taps and clicks both work in the App Drawer.

So does this have the option to run full android or is it just the leanback version?

Consider it the leanback version with an app drawer. I like it more than stock, I know that.

@BeansTown106 and @dhacker29 Thank you very much for sharing your work with us. I love PureNexus on my Nexus 6, my Nexus 9, and now I get to enjoy this wonderful rom on my NexusPlayer! Thank you for NexusPlayer support! Once I get paid this Friday I will make sure to donate to you guys. Once again, thank you!

Oh yeah, so far, works GREAT on my NP, had it running and installing apps the past 2 hours or so, seems much faster while navigating the system menus and what not.... very nice!

Cheers,
DFL

No as long as you have a mouse you can use TWRP.
