    This app is awesome. Thanks so much for releasing it for us! I was wondering if there was a way for the recently deleted or netflix or other tivos shows that are listed under my shows on the tivo to show up under my shows on the app on my phone. It still works by using the remote to go to those sections, but it would be a lot faster if that was possible. Again thanks a ton for the app, I am loving it!!

    I have the same question as rfryar. I can get it working if I have the MAK and the service number, but these seem to be system wide settings. It would be nice to define and save these for each discovered Tivo so you could easily switch between two or more.

    Thanks for your help.

    Best,
    Shannon

    As I've already said in this thread, the app was never designed to support multiple DVRs. I could probably add that, but since I have only one, it's the sort of thing that's hard to test. And I'm not terribly motivated to build hard features for strangers just because I've already given away a lot of my time.

    I think the MAK is account-wide, and the TSN should be discovered by the settings/discovery screen, so it "should work". But if it doesn't, again, I have one DVR so I have no idea how it's behaving in that situation.

    Or: I can put that feature request on the list, but don't hold your breath.

    Love the app! I forked your code, going to see if there's anything beneficial I can add once I get done with school this semester.

    I entered in the 192.168.1.x address, tried 1413 (as well as 443 since I get to the Now Playing list on the computer that way), and put in the MAK of my Premiere, but it says "Searching" and No Results Found. I know the 192 address is right, and the MAK is right (it is the password for the browser Now Playing). Neither port seems to make a difference. Remote control is on (and it works using an iPhone and another Tivo app).

    And as I type this, I noticed my WiFi was off on my Droid X, so now it finds the box...and DANG it is a HD Series 3 box, oh well!

    Decided to include this for others in case the above is useful.

    Thanks, D

    I am now getting a " Authetication failed; Check MAK settings" message. MAK is correct - confirmed on both the Tivo and Tivo.com. Remote is enabled, video sharing is and has been enabled.

    Help ?

    This is a great app, but being able to see the channel listings on a tablet would be nice. My question is why can't TiVo use some of the money they're spending advertising their wonderful ipad app and develop an android app rather than expecting someone to do it for free? Do ipad owners have a higher subscription rate than android users?

    I really don't get it. It's hard to believe they're leaving the Android market completely untapped. More Android devices are sold every day than iTrendy devices and there are more Android devices in use right now than any other device. (Nielson numbers) This of course does not take into account tablets, but their sales #'s versus the other devices are not as large.

    I'm sure it will get there eventually, but yes it is pretty clear cut that they Should be moving on it Much quicker. Actually should be well into Android territory by now rather than waiting it out. Android isn't a 'phase' it is here to stay and more manus need to recognize that.

    And with android, you might even be able to run on your windows or linux desktop as well using the android emulator (there ain't no ipad emulator, at least no free one I've heard of).

    Well speaking of that why the heck don't I have a Windows app (or Linux or Mac) that does this too so I can do it all from my laptop or desktop? It's just calls over the network to the ports being used...

    Maybe we should start a new thread for all of this instead of continuing to derail this one...

    Kmttg does many of these things and more in a desktop app. It is java based so not much in the way of a guy, but it works great.

    Great app but I have a question.

    If I am using this app from outside my home on wireless internet or wifi what port do I need to forward through my router? I tried the 1413 port but that didnt work.

    thanks

    Does anyone know why the Tivo Commander for DROID has the tv volume and power buttons dissabled? All of the other features are working perfectly, but I cant set the volume or power because those buttons on the DROID app are gray'd out.

    Please advise, thanks..

    This app controls your _TiVo_, not your _TV_, where volume and power (usually) happen.
