    Yep and here's the streaming app on Android, which does exactly what Tivo says they can't do on rooted devices. And it's using a CableLabs-certified device, just like Tivo.

    The whole thing is just a farce and once again shows you how much Tivo is in bed with the cableCos instead of working for the retail customer.

    I dont think this is about being in bed with the cable company as much as not being able to sell their Tivo Mini boxes (with service). If you have something on your phone that allows it to stream to a TV and NOT have to pay $5 a month + $99 for equipment, well that would just be unprofitable. Either way, its all about the money, but at least identify the real problem. TiVO: Open it up and charge me $1 a month to stream from my phone directly to my tv instead of the tivo mini.

    There is no longer a service fee for Mini so that is not why.

    I have a Samsung Note 3
    I got it fixed by doing a factory reset AND reloading stock rom, here's a site which can help with the process of loading stock rom onto note 3's
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2703006
    Most programs can cloak the rooting of the phone, like with RootCloak, Tivo still found the root even with RootCloak.
    Obviously doing a factory reset and reloading the stock Rom will completely delete all your phone data.

    Root cloak and such just hide from android apps. It is detecting it in native code. (and possibly in android as well, but fixing that didn't help.) At the end of the day it just comes down to more tivo bs.

    Update on the testing. I received an email today to test the latest version and I have confirmed it worked! No more modification message.

    Sorry I was asked not to share the link. But they said they expect to release the new build this week.

    does anyone know where to check for a solution to get around being blocked on a modified device? I've been checking xda-developers but that seems to have stalled out. I wish I could work on it myself but it's beyond my abilities.

    This really sucks for those of us that use a legacy device (droid bionic). I have no need to advance my hardware beyond where it is. The software that I'd be subjected to under stock would make my phone pretty unusable, not to mention that they've stopped updating it.

    You can't really blame TiVo for spotty legacy device support. Tech changes. Old protocols become unworkable. Your bionic came out four iphones ago, for goodness sake.

    If the device manufacturer no longer supports their own device, why should TiVo be expected to support it?

    I think you're missing the point. I'm not expecting them to support my legacy device. I'm supporting it myself. In fact, I have an android system that IS supported by tivo. There is no old, unworkable protocol on my phone (unless you are counting an older version of bluetooth, that thankfully still works with my heart rate monitor).

    The problem is that they're blocking the ability to stream to my device which really isn't that outdated (even if Verizon and Motorola want you to believe it is). I think the specs are fairly close to the iphone5. It's somewhat ironic that if tvio had released the android streaming app a year and a half ago, I would have been on a non-rooted device with the exact same phone.

    In that respect, the specs to my old Windows XP desktop are fairly close to my Windows 8.1 laptop.

    Should I also expect the latest software I buy to work on both?

    If you installed Windows 8.1 on your old laptop that USED to run XP, then yes (assuming hardware components and processors, drivers are compatible). That's the appropriate analogy here (although he had to "hack" the phone to get a current software version installed)

    You're completely missing the point that he's running a rooted aftermarket ROM with a version of Android that is compatible with the app, except for root. That's the equivalent of upgrading an older PC from XP to Win7 or later (i.e., the hardware is not the issue).

    What I want to know, more than anything, is how someone keeps a Droid Bionic PHYSICALLY intact for that long.

    My poor Galaxy Nexus is just barely over 2 years old and it's got a huge crack across the screen and barely holds a charge for 6 hours.

    haha, getting a bit off topic but a good question. I have had to replace the screen twice (costs about $12 on Amazon). Not that difficult a repair. And due to others upgrading from their bionic I now have three batteries, two car mounts, a home and office mount and a lapdock. And I'm still grandfathered on unlimited data until Verizon changes that.

    I'm tempted to upgrade because a quad processor and the increased screen resolution would be a big step up but the cost is losing all the functionality I currently have. And I really haven't run into a single app that I can't use that I want to use until this incident with tivo. I may blow through a fully charged battery when I'm mapping and tracking heart rate on a long run but I have the extra batteries for that.


    I will note I was able to tether a friend's phone to mine, run the tivo streaming app on her phone and stream a show from my tivo through my cell phone's wireless connection to her phone. Funny, I can pass the tivo stream through my phone I just can't display it on my phone.

    Oh well, I'm still hopeful someone with more skills than me will figure out how to get past the restriction. I figure it will also enable to output the stream through my hdmi out. That's what I'd really like to do, watch my tivo on a hotel tv while away from home.

    Remaining off topic - what functionality would you lose by upgrading? Pretty much any android phone can be rooted and you can configure it the same way. Or do you mean the functionality you have with accessories?

    Yeah, I just meant all the accessories and my current setup. That would all be sunk costs. An upgrade would be the price of the phone (full price to keep unlimited data) plus all the newer accessories (those that exist, there isn't a lapdock anymore). The one thing I'd definitely lose would be the hdmi out. As far as I can tell that isn't on the newer phones. I think they handle hdmi out via USB but not sure how that works, my guess is it need a cable to convert USB to hdmi? Anyway, for something like a s5 plus two home docks, two car docks and cables it would be about $800-$900. Seems silly to pay that much just so I could add 1 app, when my current phone is perfectly fine for my needs.
