    Did Margret or anybody say anything about android streaming not being available by tomorrow? It's been awfully quite around here with the anticipation of a highly sought after capability supposedly to be released any day now.

    As far as we know everything is still on track. Some are even hoping it will go live at midnight.

    For more likely to be one minute before midnight on the 30th (in the International Dateline West time zone :).

    IDK. Usually Margret pops up and give us a heads up in advance of any new feature/update arriving. Also, Dave Zatz usually has an article up beforehand too. Their silence seems like tomorrow will be a no-go. I'd love to be wrong about this.

    Don't draw any conclusions based on my silence. The last NDA and pre-brief I agreed to was the Stream like 2+ years ago. I feel like we're pretty darn close tho...

    Here's me reading into nothing...
    I have a kindle fire and there were two versions of the TiVo app, one for small screens and one for larger/kindle fire. I have both installed on my kindle fire HDX. I just searched the Amazon app store and I only see one available.

    Rumor: maybe they disabled one temporarily while it's updated to the new version.

    So, I downloaded the TiVo app updated 9/29 from google play, and I can stream a recorded program to my HTC One. Is that new?

    I woke up this morning to find an update for my Android N7 tablet. It asked me to update (really delete) the exiting TiVo app - which was deprecated.

    I uninstalled it and installed the other TiVo app (version 2.0) and, yes, in house streaming works (did not set up out of house streaming).

    Finally!

    Now about being able to download shows for offline viewing...:D

    Yeah, well, I did the update and it said I have to set up streaming and asked if I wanted to set it up (for my Roamio Pro). I said yes, and it responds with "Not able to set up TiVo Stream, Please try again". The end :(

    Is your Tivo on the latest firmware? That's also required in order to stream to Android devices.

    I got the updated app this morning and I'm loving my stream as I work.

    Well, I got all the way through the setup, then encountered what I just knew would happen: Can't stream to a rooted phone :). So now I have to go to the trouble to find one of the apps that can hide root temporarily - putting these checks in is so futile...

    Meanwhile, I have determined that streaming seems to work great on my old Nexus 7 which is totally stock (having been factory reset when I got my new one), so maybe I'll just make the old Nexus 7 my dedicated streaming device and not try to fight with root detection :).

    Just downloaded and set up out of home streaming with no issues.

    Hit a big brick wall though when I went to actually try streaming on my rooted Galaxy 4. Got a message saying "Unauthorized Modification Detected" It then has a message saying streaming is not allowed on phones with unauthorized modifications.

    I can't see myself giving up root access to be able to stream. Hopefully someone will find a workaround. :(

    Latest should be 20.4.4a-USA-6-840 which is what I have.
    App otherwise works fine, I can see program info.
    Nexus 10, 4.4
    I use pyTivo with no problem.
    They are on the same network with no filtering.

    When I go to settings-> system information It says "checking for streaming devices" for a very long time, until the tablet goes to sleep. Then I wake the tablet and the message is gone and nothing has changed. When I try to click on the icon of the remote or pause, it says "Away from Home Network- When you are away from your home network, some options are not available. To access all options, connect to the same WiFi network as your TiVo DVR". Which it is. When I say "connect" again, then it connected and settings worked and finished. Not very friendly.

    Not sure I understand what happened, but I am streaming!!!!!!

    Let us know if the root cloaking works and what you used.

    So, I have a Roamio Basic with latest software, and latest Tivo app on a table. Everything works as it used to. I think to stream I would have to buy a Tivo Stream and hardwire both it and the Roamio to my router. Is that correct?

    No way the Wife Acceptance Factor passes go on dropping two Cat-5 into family room (oe even one).
