    We heard Feb. then March, now we are coming up on the end of March. Any rumors about the android app update? (I can guess the "April for sure!" rumor myself :).

    I have been working with someone on the audio drop out issues and asked about this... We are getting an update soon but no offline play back until later :-(

    They typically release stuff on Tuesdays, so March 31st lines up perfectly. :)

    It was released today. I just downloaded it. All new redesigned interface. I haven't done any testing on it yet though.. But I was able to setup streaming while away from home. I don't believe that was possible before.

    Works well so far. I will pay with it more later. Thanks for the heads up.

    Away from home streaming was always possible for me, on my Note 2 and Tab Pro.

    I'm really liking the new design. Looks real clean and so far, the performance is much better than before the big update.

    Right, but to set up a device to be able to stream out of home, you had to be on your home network for the initial setup portion.

    Can you download shows now? And can you use the app as a network remote for Minis?

    You cannot download on this update. As for remote control, I am not home but I see this grayed out on the lower left... uploadfromtaptalk1427309121941.jpg

    I don't believe that is true. I've done the initial setup on both devices while NOT on the home network. 1 was set up at work, another was set up while driving on the interstate, using a tethered connection.

    I could be misunderstanding the process, but this was just done within a few days, so things are still fresh in my mind.

    And i very well may be remembering an initial release of the android app with streaming. Because I definitely was NOT able to set up a device while on the road.

    I just installed (updated, actually) the app and set up streaming (remotely) without any issue.

    The kicker here is that my device is ROOTED, so it appears that Tivo has removed the non-rooted device requirement.

    This is fantastic news, IMHO!

    I have to be on the home network to set up the ios app. The android allows me to set it up away from home.

    Yeah, I was just going to ask about that. I am going to root my tab pro now.

    I noticed the same thing but didn't post about it... Didn't want it to be taken away if tivo didn't know it was enabled... ;)

    I wonder if that will change again when they start allowing downloading? That's where the real danger of hacking lies. Especially with the new feature that allows you to move protected files from the TiVo to the mobile device side stepping the "copy once" flag.

    Or Tivo will solve the problem by not providing support for downloading.

    Sorry for my cynical tone but I just found out downloading is not supported in this release and I lost the little bit of remaining respect I had for this POS company.
