    You're welcome. :)

    I'm just trying to find a way to download the official Tivo android app now - I've used Market Enabler but it still doesn't appear.

    Here it is. http://www.megaupload.com/?d=EA9CQKBY

    Got it working. Had to alter the python script to show both my tivos but apart from that it was reasonably straightforward.

    It works but..

    Channel logos are of course all wrong..
    There are no images - you can do things like browse actors but their image comes up as a blue square all the time. Does the ipad app have images?

    OTOH everything else looks like it works.

    It's just picked up from what's added by the python script. You mean the MAK? That's in the tivo settings menu.

    Ahh.. the one on cableforum is not the tivo android app. It's a 3rd party app*.. someone was either misinformed or was having a little joke (it doesn't even look remotely like the tivo app).

    Try http://www.megaupload.com/?d=EA9CQKBY


    * Indeed, a copy of a payware app.. although I'm not sure I'd pay for that..

    Some info as to why the images don't work.. it's trying to fetch them directly off tivo, but they're not there (yet). Makes me wonder if they exist somewhere else, eg. at VM, and a bit of careful proxying will fix it.

    eg.
    Code:
    http://i.tivo.com/images-static/logos/65x55/202.png
    is presumably somewhere..

    Hi Tony,
    Can you give us a prompt on how to configure the Official TiVo app please? I got it loaded but it didn't find my TiVo (commander app did) and I can't Sus how or where to get at the settings, it made me login as a guest and wanted email addresses and stuff, should I have percevered and got beyond that stage?

    Exactly the same as the ipad app. You run the proxy and the app sees your tivos, then prompts for the MAK. Really nothing to configure... it's pretty automatic.

    Forget the guest login stuff, it's for the tivo.com site and relevant only to US users.

    OK. So I've downloaded and installed the .apk [reports itself as ver.1.5.1.35(1a) while it is scanning].

    When I start the app it automatically scans for my TiVo and finds it. It displays the last 4 digits of its ID in a single-item list with the words "Not Available >" next to it.

    Touching "Not Available >" displays: "Unsupported DVR - This app currently requires a TiVo Premiere Series4 DVR or TiVo Series3/TiVo HD DVR - OK". There is nowhere to type the access code but network access is enabled because TiVo Commander works just fine.

    Any further suggestions welcome.

    OK, thanks. So I've now downloaded and am running BonjourVM only to find that I needed to install itunes (or other apple products to get dnssd.dll installed). That now done, the app 'Force Closes' while scanning. Don't know whether this means anything to anybody:

    APP_VERSION_CODE=15352
    ANDROID_VERSION=2.3.5
    PHONE_MODEL=HTC Desire HD A9191

    LOGCAT=null

    Please let me know, if it does. Otherwise, I guess it's wait until it's officially released (if ever).

    Sounds like the windows app isn't properly pretending to be an S4 tivo. I don't do windows so can't really help. Maybe ask the guy on cableforum?

    Does the latest version of the US TiVo Android app still work with the updated UK TiVo firmware (15.2-01-2-C00)?

    That f/w has stopped most of the 3rd party apps from working (on purpose), but if the official apps still work then we've got something to go on to get them working again. Apparently the latest iPad one (1.6.1?) still works, but I've no idea how to disassemble an iPad app.

    No. Tivo won't authorise the android app.. it connects then gets kicked out. Seems to be deliberate, since it's talking the same protocol as the ipad app.
