Sorry, no, I have a 4S.
Perfect. Once xCon is updated for the 5S, I'll update from 37.
Has anyone tried installing the Tivo app update that showed up this morning? I'm afraid to install the update since I have the Tivo app working now using xCon 39 beta 7.
Works fine, I just installed it and I'm still using build 37 of xCon and everything works fine.
New TiVo app is working fine for me on the 4S with the latest version of xCon installed. Had no problems streaming while OOH.
Download the new TiVo iPhone APP available today. While not listed in the changes, it appears OOH streaming over cellular is now available.
...only for shows that don't have the CCI flag set, right?
I'm not seeing this. The "Watch Now" button is lit, but when I tap it the "Watch on TV" and "Watch on iPhone" buttons are grayed out when not on wireless.
Are you using My3G, with the "Use Direct Flag" set to ON?(in the My3G settings, when clicking on the little i, on the Tivo app)) This is with the newest Tivo app, correct?
I'm running the newest version of the app, 3.2.3 and everything works fine.
Cydia does not have the updated Xcon and some people are not comfortable installing deb files, so understandably, we do not have as many people to test these things.
Anyway, I'm glad that I could help provide a fix for us jailbreakers. I did luck up and stumble upon somebody, who didn't mind testing ALL the versions so...thanks to him also.
The confusion here might be stemming from the fact that out-of-home (ie : over cellular) streaming is supposed to be an official feature coming to the app (ie : no jailbreak tweak required) and one poster even said it has arrived on his device, simply with the latest app update:
Unless he's mistaken, and is actually getting the feature because he has my3g or something equivalent installed?
Nope, not using My3G.
Right, I was basing my testing on dbattaglia001's comment that it was enabled in the new version of the app and My3G was not mentioned so I assumed it was baked in. Doesn't seem to be the case.
the update Tivo app still does OOH streaming on my ipad 3 using the version 37 of xCon and also works on my 5s
I don't jailbreak or use any special software/hacks. But after installing app, for first time I was able to stream over cellular. Didn't dully test it, but I do verify that I started downloading a show over wifi off work...and then left and a box popped up asking if I wanted to continue downloading over cellular or instead pause and wait to resume when getting back on wifi. Not sure if the answer is different if I tried streaming. In any case it's a positive step to allow for downloads over cellular.
Yep, download over 4g works but streaming does not. I just tried it
Ah, gotcha, thanks for the clarification. This isn't then, in fact, "streaming over cellular." For that, we still must wait. And I must add that as a Time Warner customer, I am supremely disappointed that even streaming will only work for shows that don't have the CCI flag set. (For TWC customers, this means recordings only from local channels.)
I figured streaming was the answer to work around that CCI issue, but TiVo (once again) decides to be too cautious, to the detriment of the end user's experience.
Same problem for us Brighthouse customers. Really kills the appeal of OOH streaming when you can't stream 80% of the content you have recorded on the TiVo.
Yes, but at least you have Dogwater, where you can eat cool food out of a dog bowl!!! Or is it closed now?
I'm going to do some testing on Thursday, to see what Cox cable streams over Cellular.
I'll post my results then.
Shows without the CCI byte set, you'll be able to stream and download locally.
Shows with the CCI byte set, you'll be able to stream locally, but not download.
Those same shows (with the CCI byte set) won't be able to stream or download over cellular. Whether that's initiated via the official feature when it's released, or via My3G, it won't matter, I don't think. You won't have remote access to them. Which is lame. TiVo should have at least allowed streaming.
You will only be able to stream shows over cellular that don't have the CCI byte set. And with Time Warner and Brighthouse, that means recordings from local channels only. AFAIK Verizon FIOS users have no CCI byte set on ANY channel. I'm jealous.
Downloading over cellular has worked since OOH streaming was enabled. That's been working for a while.
I'm trying that fix now. I didn't realize that on my iPad3 on ios 5.1 that I was getting something special by being able to stream live OOH using xcon and my3g. It works on an iPhone4 I have as well. iPhone 5 and ios7 = no go, iPad air + iOS7 = no go. I bought tsprotector P as well from cydia which is supposed to work to the same end for the TiVo app, no dice there either.
I still have unlimited LTE on my iPad from the original iPad plan that keeps following me when I upgrade iPads.
