Downloading from Tivo iPad app

It's absolutely ridiculous that Tivo has not upgraded the iPad app to allow for downloading shows in the background. This has been around for a while now and fairly easy to implement. C'mon Tivo.

This is an iOS limitation. iOS does not allow apps to download in the background for more then 10 minutes. There is a new API in iOS7 that allows the app to request a longer period of time, but it's not quite clear from the docs how exactly it works or if it would apply to TiVo or not.

Why did you assume this was an issue with the TiVo app and decide your first post would be a rant based on this incorrect assumption?
