    TiVo app now plays YouTube, Facebook video to TV or phone

    Dave announced an update to the IOS app today... It definitely has a different flatter look than what we were used too and some added features.

    As of yet it does not appear to support stream over cellular - but I do like the Facebook and Youtube video integration quite a bit.

    It's ok for an update. Some things are nice to finally get away from the pre iOS7 styles. I hated looking at those old style spinning selectors.....now when you chose things like New or reruns, you see all the options without needing to scroll them.

    Some elements feel really out of place. The settings box blends to much with the background and some buttons/elements don't seem to have enough spacing in them.

    Overall a pretty decent update.

    Looks nice. Cellular streaming will require an update to the Stream itself so even if the app supports it we'll still have to wait for that to come through.

    For some reason my iPhone had 7 updates waiting that hadn't come through auto-update including the TiVo app...

    It's still a little sluggish for my liking, but maybe that's just the nature of the beast with having to pull info off of the DVR... I do like the new design though, it finally feels like it fits with iOS 7.

    Feels about the same level of responsiveness as the old app. Yeah, I wish it buffered more data while it is idle, so when you click on different areas/scroll down it was snappier/smoother, but its not that high up on my personal wishlist. Dont really care about the cosmetic changes.... wish we could get functionality updates instead. Hopefully this is more "preparation" work for new features they're promising :)

    Any early word on how this app update treats those of us who are jailbroken?

    Since nobody else mentioned it I presume I'm the only one seeing this - with the App update now whenever I stream a show, captions are permanently turned on regardless of what state the CC toggle button is in. If someone else is having that problem please post here. My guess is I'll probably have to uninstall and re-install to hopefully fix the issue...

    EDIT: Uninstalled and reinstalled the App and problem persists. Now I'm not so sure I'm the only one seeing this. I have enabled and used captions before, but the toggle has always worked. This gets annoying in a hurry watching certain shows with no ability to turn off. Great...

    Didn't affect my ipad air or iPhone 5 both on AT&T. I can still watch live tv and stream recorded shows over cellular and didn't get one of those messages about I modified devices either.

    Works for me. iPhone 5/iOS 7.1.1, never jailbroken. TiVo App version: v3.3(732148). Tried it with a program that had been downloaded before the app update, as well as with a live stream. CCs were able to be toggled on and off at will. The live stream was coming from a Roamio Plus with 20.4.1 (Stream version info: 19.1.6-USB6).

    Good to know. I took the leap on my 5s last night, and it seemed to work. But, I use apps to mask the jailbreak so I never know exactly what changes from update to update until I talk to others with a similar config.

    Were you able to download shows over cellular before this update? I noticed that option last night and wondered if it was new to this release? What apps do you use to avoid issues? I use TS Protector P and 3G Unrestrictor.

    Thanks,

    -Rob

    My iOS device is iPad Air, so perhaps it only affects iPads? Anyone with an iPad or iPad Air have the CC problem?

    Does anyone else have a problem with the todo list? On my iOs devices, it constantly "reboots", going back to the top of the list while I am scrolling down the screen Highly irritating.

    I have an iPad air and I'm able to toggle CCs at will. Have you tried rebooting the iPad? I find that if I stop all running apps, then launch one app, then reboot it clears up a lot of issues. Launching that app after you kill them is key. Without that it will relaunch everything after the reboot.

    I haven't had a lot of time to put it through the paces, but the look of it is pretty wonky.

    It's made up of a weird mix of iOS 7 flat minimalism and TiVo's 3D beveled signature look.

    They don't combine elegantly.

    Yeah they should have created flat versions of the icons like the folders, delete/KUID, thumbs, etc...

    Edit: although iOS itself has a weird mix of flat and shaded stuff so it's not really that out of place.

    Previously I used xcon, and am currently using the old beta 37 version I think. I use tsprotector p and my3g. The tivo app in my 3g with the direct flag set worked for me previously to download shows over cellular.

    My iPad has unlimited data grandfathered from the original iPad 3G, so I use a lot of data when I'm on the road working especially in a lte area

    When I was on vacation a few weeks ago the wifi in the hotel was so bad that I couldn't even download a show without it stalling. I ended up using my iPhone in teather mode to link my iPad so that I could download stuff. I have never used that much mobile data in my life. Luckily our plan lapsed right in the middle of our trip so we didn't go over our limit.
