UPDATE: I had hoped that TiVo had improved the app since my review 8 months ago, but clearly they don't care. I'm done. Going with DirecTv.* The app stops every 10 seconds while streaming! This is ridiculous! I have seen several other bad reviews. When are you going to do something about it, TiVo?!
Worked fine with our new TiVo Roamio OTA for a couple days. Now it refuses to let me log in, says I have the wrong version of the app, crashes, etc. Uninstalling and reinstalling did nothing to help. Downloaded DVR Commander for TiVo which is working fine. I'm sad because I like the TiVo Roamio OTA so much and the app is so disappointing.
How does tivo fail at streaming so badly? So many other apps do this so much better even with the same types of conditions (sling). Why is it trying to run at nearly full quality when it cant keep up with the stream, throttle back until you can make the video smooth. If you cant figure that out at least allow me to set the quality lower so I can force it to be watchable. Then there is the download option which i have never seen complete without failing. Why doesnt it just resume? Ugh.
This app was a great seamless option for watching my tivo recordings. It was terrific on my phone or tablet. However over the last year i can barely watch more than 10 minutes of a show before it starts freezing up and buffering incessantly, I hate it. The only thing it's good for now is monitoring my one pass schedule and exploring show times. I don't get it, before the upgrade, the old version worked great, I'm so disgusted.
Won't connect most of the time. Will reboot Tivo box, etc. and still have chronic issues. It's not my wireless because my husband can connect with his iPhone, but he also has intermittent issues (not at the same time as me.)
The streaming sucks and it takes forever to download. Needs a fast forward button for streaming. It buffers to much and you cant set video quality.
Minor bug fixes and improvements.
