    I got it off my Cell phone. I used the app "File Expert" to back up the app and create an APK. Then I just downloaded it to my PC. And then connected the Kindle Fire to my PC and copied it to the Kindle Fire . Then I installed it on the Kindle Fire..( I did need to uninstall the old app on the Fire before installing the new one)

    And I do give them a LITTLE bit of credit for at least communicating that.

    That is why you think things are fast! You are using the *MUCH MUCH MUCH* faster phone version on your tablet. You are not using the tablet version.

    I actually think the phone version is quite usable (once you ever get connected). But on the TABLET version, the UI is very different, and they are back to depending on loading live info & graphics before even controls are available. It SUCKS. And if anyone thinks otherwise, tell me how long it takes you on the TABLET version to delete 10 shows in suggestions. How long SHOULD it take? Well, on the PHONE app, maybe 6 seconds. I would guess at least twelve times longer on the TABLET app.... MINIMUM.

    The kindle fire is a 7 inch tablet. The one for the phone is also designed for tablets with that resolution. I think it handles up to 1280x720p. Which is the resolution of my phone and I think also the 7 inch fire HD. The fire I have now is 1024x600.

    When I get the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HD later this year I'll have to use the tablet version. It's resolution is supposed to be 1920x1200.

    Sent from my HTC ReZound using Forum Runner

    EDIT: It supports up to 1280x800 resolutions. That is the resolution of the 7" Kindle Fire HD. So I guess support is just by the resolution. I guess higher resolutions must use the tablet version. Hopefully UPS will leave the 7" Kindle Fire HD at my doorstep tomorrow so I can try it out with the slightly higher resolution. Otherwise I'll have to wait until Monday to get it.

    They probably wont add the rooted limitation until they add Stream support. At that point they'll have to to appease Cable Labs.

    I think you are too hung up on resolution. My 4.7" phone (Evo LTE) is the same resolution as most tablets (1280x720), and almost the same as my *10 inch* Xoom. Google Play and the app itself go by more than just resolution when "deciding" which devices to support (which is kinda stupid- let *us* choose).

    I figured it was either by resolution or tablet size. So maybe it's by tablet size then?

    I don't know for sure, but typically Google Play allows restriction/distribution by lots of different factors- including exact model numbers. TiVo is in the driver's seat to choose which devices to support on which device.

    Installed Tivo app on my LG Intuition this morning. Entered MAK, seemed to be working fine.... Fired it up tonight and finds my Elite but dvr name is not correct and cannot use the app at all because all I get is this error message
    Same error on LG Motion. Meanwhile my iPad app works perfectly fine.

    Uninstalled App from LG Intuition. Re-installed it. Same error and won't even let me enter the MAK now.
