    I imagine there wouldn't be any issues, not much changed architecturally in iOS 7 that would worry me.

    You wrote up a bug, right? bugreport.apple.com.

    MAYBE it is Tivo's problem, maybe not..

    I have the same issue. The beta is so new that there's no way that developers (TiVo) could expect any issues. I expect the next update to the TiVo app to resolve some of the issues.

    However, as the beta process progresses I'd expect new issues to arise.

    This is how betas work.

    This is an important thread for those of us with iOS devices. I am now too old to mess with beta software (I started with windows 3.0.....)

    Tablet and phone are too critical to make the jump until I am sure everything is right.

    I can confirm I have the same issue on iOS7 Beta 3.

    The application launches, allows input of Media Access Key, attempts to find TiVo Stream and then crashes (it also crashes at all subsequent app launches)

    ... Bummer for now, hopefully TiVo will update the app heads of the iOS 7 official launch.

    The apps works in the away from home mode. It is the at home mode when it blows up.

    If you hit the bottom bar to change to another selection (e.g. my shows) very quickly, it won't crash.

    BTW, I wrote up a bug about it.

    So it's the new What To Watch thing causing the problem. I wish there was some way to just have the app default to My Shows. I never care about anything on that What To Watch page

    At least on my iPad (which isn't running iOS 7), it USUALLY does stick to My Shows. Seemingly only if it has lost connection to the Tivo (and has to reconnect), does it go to somewhere else.
    But yeah, the iPhone version doesn't seem to work the same way, or maybe because I don't have anything downloaded.

    Mine never returns to My Shows, on an iPad 3. I use it every day and every day it starts at the What To watch screen. The only time it doesn't is if I launch it quickly after the last time I used it. But if it times out, or I manually close it, it always has to reconnect and always goes back to What To watch.

    What do you mean by 'manually close it'? Do you mean kill it from the double-home application switcher?

    If so, don't do that. If you just mean hitting home to go to another app then going back into the Tivo app.. that's odd. I'll try to pay more attention to what it does on my iPad mini.. but I'm 100% positive it stays in My Shows (though IIRC, it defaults to the Tivo rather than the shows on the ipad) FAR FAR FAR more often than it did in a previous version.. which was never.

    If I kill it from the application switcher it happens immediately. But I don't usually do that, it was just the fastest way to reproduce the problem. If I simply close the app by pressing the home button, or doing the 5 finger pinch, and come back immediately it remembers where it was. But if I do that and then come back 20 minutes later it has to reconnect to the TiVo and drops me at the What To Watch screen. I typically only use it once a day, when I go to bed, so it's usually about 24 hours between uses. Every single time I use it it has to connect and then drops me at What To Watch. I really wish it could just default to My Shows instead.

    Yeah, ok, that's related to what I said earlier. But I'm positive (I did see it last night) that it does at least *some* form of reconnecting to the Tivo without going back to what to watch. Only if it TOTALLY loses connection (you have to pick the specific Tivo), does it go back to what to watch, for me...
