VM "TVAnywhere" Discussion Thread

With the imminent release of the VM TVAnywhere App and Web Portal I thought we may as well have a single thread in which to discuss it.

From what I have seen of it so far in reports on the web, it certainly looks like it's going to be almost brilliant.

Though I wasn't in on the alpha or beta testing, I am going to be one of the lucky ones who will get their hands on the released version a little early and I will be blogging about my experience with it for anyone interested.

Looking forward to getting it. The US app was very good so with luck the VM version will be as good if not better.

RC is probably release candidate.

So This is a higher version and this is only release candidate 2 of that version.

If they ever release the andoid version this could be a very handy little cheap device to travel with you or have TV in another room

Hi Carl,

Why have you been banned from the cableforum forum?,

I'm looking forward to the app, if it ever appears!

This has changed to "temporarily suspended" due to... well, it doesn't really matter. But let's just say that the board is one of the worst-moderated ever!

My guess is November. We (ie myself and the others chosen) should have it this week.

I had the same thing, but then I remembered that I'd emailed myself the MAK when I used to use the american Tivo app.
