Wish It Worked Any time I try to watch my recorded shows it says I'm not connected to the same network or out of home streaming is not permitted and I'm on the same Wi-Fi network. For the price I paid for the TiVo Bolt you would think the App would work also, VERY DISSAPOINTED!
Updates have improved the app. It plays on my Samsung Galaxy Tab now. I miss the 30 sec skip button from the old app. Out of home streaming is not nearly as stable on the Android app as it is on iOS. I've never been able to get through an hour long show without problems. Downloading to the device is an OK workaround, but its convenience is limited by the time it takes to transfer.
This app sucks The only thing is good for is seeing the guide or setting up a recording away from my home network. I can no longer download my recorded shows to my phone or stream them. Not worth downloading this app just for that. I travel a lot so it was nice to be able to DL shows to watch....as long as i had half a day for a 30 minute show to download.....
Is this really the best TiVo can do? Come on Tivo! You can do better than this! It doesn't matter if I'm in the house on the same network or on Wi-Fi outside the house it is forever losing the connection. When I try to reconnect it says the maximum streaming connections are in use. Downloading the show helps, but even that loses the connection all the time and takes FOREVER... Almost useless for watching shows. OK for scheduling I suppose.
Nice control, major deficit though... The app is great for scheduling, exploring and streaming, but I travel a lot and want to be able to download shows. Unfortunately, the tivo app does not give Android users the option of storing the content to the sdcard, which limits what I can take with me. Please address this, gods of Tivo.
Greatly improved A year ago when we started using this app it was crap to be honest, but it's fixed almost every issue we've had. Now it works really well and is very reliable. Only wish is that there was a skip function for whole commercial breaks on the tablet app, like there is on the boxes.
