    I'm not getting a Stream until there is some sort of support for streaming to my Windows tablet. I was looking into Android emulators, but this post makes me believe that all of them will end up with the same result.

    You're never going to get a Stream then. But you do get it included with the Roamio Plus and Pro if you ever want to upgrade, not that it matters because it won't stream to your Windows tab.

    You have other options, namely pyTivo and kmttg on Windows which will let you transfer videos for playback if you're not on a Nazi cableCo.

    Does anyone know if this issue was corrected? I note this post about a link to a fix that was successful but never saw an official fix discussed...

    The present tivo app does stream ok to my developer edition note 4 with unlocked bootloader but not rooted. I was thinking of installing twrp recovery but was wondering if that would cause a streaming problem?

    I have TWRP installed on all my android devices (Nexus 4, Nexus 7 2013, and OnePlus One and the Tivo stream app works fine on all of them as long as I'm not rooted. If I am rooted, using the full unroot option in SuperSU allows the stream functionality to start working immediately without even needing a reboot. Then I can flash SuperSU in TWRP to regain root easily when I need it back.

    And the stream app does work in Cyanogen Mod at least on my OnePlus One as well as long as it is not rooted.

    All 3 devices are on the respective stock roms, although Cyanogen Mod 11s is stock for the OnePlus One. I am using a custom kernel on the OnePlus One though (AK Kernel). I am using the stock kernel for the Nexus devices. All 3 have an unlocked bootloader as well.

    This would explain why I can't get it to work. I have an older TF101 tablet running the KatKiss ROM. I unrooted it, but it doesn't stream. With the stock ROM, I coudn't run the Tivo app at all. :(

    Bumping this thread. I know this won't apply to everyone yet, but since Lollipop is rolling out to some phones, I'm trying to figure out a workaround. I upgraded my Samsung Galaxy S5 to Lollipop. Rooted, but the same method isn't working at the time. If I uninstall SuperSu as I did before, my entire system will not bootup on a restart. Trying to figure out a workaround. For now, I'll just have to live without streaming on the Android phone.

    I got a custom ROM working with Tivo Streaming on a Nexus 6 (I have the cursed combination!)

    Assuming you don't have root, or "su" executable in /system/xbin, make sure:

    /default.prop should have "ro.secure=1" and "ro.debuggable=0" .. if you can't read the file directly, check them with
    - adb shell getprop ro.secure
    - adb shell getprop ro.debuggable

    /system/build.prop should only show "user" build and should have "release-keys" instead of "test-keys" in build descriptions. (Check ro.build.description as an example, there are ~4 properties in here related to this.).

    Anyway, good luck, I'm guessing the cyanogenmod users are stumped on the "test-keys" in the build.prop, probably katkiss has same issue.

    root@shamu:/ # logcat | grep -i ssdrm
    I/ssDrmValidator( 3459): Z=1
    I/ssDrm ( 3459): Executing A
    I/ssDrm ( 3459): Executing B
    I/ssDrm ( 3459): Executing C
    I/ssDrm ( 3459): Executing D
    I/ssDrm ( 3459): Executing E
    I/ssDrm ( 3459): Executing F

    So, I took a look at mine with KatKiss, and there was no "su". However, ro.secure=0 and ro.debuggable=1. There was one "test-keys" at ro.build.tags, but all others said "release-keys".

    After spending some more time trying to truly unroot it, I decided to give a different ROM a try. OmniROM got me to the point that ro.secure=1, but there was a "su" execuatable. I can't delete it because I'm not root. :rolleyes: Tivo app works, but not streaming.

    Now, I've installed SuperSU, and I'm going to try using it to fully unroot it. I ran out of time to mess with it this morning.

    Edit:
    When I got around to trying to do a "Full Unroot", the progress window never disappeared. It did get rid of "su", but SuperSU was still installed. Tivo app still won't stream.

    Like another post above, I tried Root Cloak, which didn't seem to make a difference. I'm starting to lose hope.

    You'll be a very long time waiting for a Windows Stream app. However the American Megatrends ANDROID emulator AMIDuOS works well on my Windows 8.1 Notebook running a version of Jellybean 4.2.2. After installing Google Play I was able to install the TiVo app and running Stream setup I can Stream to my Notebook.

    I have not attempted clicking the root option in the app. You can in the app switch back and forth turning root on and off. I don't know why you would want to if running TiVo's android app was the only reason.

    The app is free to try for 30 days then its just $9.99, well worth it I'd say. I can't say if it will work of a windows surface thingy my lowend ASUS Notebook it works great.

    I just tried this, and it was a piece of cake. I didn't even install Google Play, I just installed the Tivo app from the Amazon Market. The menus are hard to read since it insists on going portrait for them, but once the video starts, it switches to landscape. It's working great.

    So, I can't stream to my Android tablet. I can't steam to my PC. ...but I CAN stream to an emulated Android tablet on my PC. What's wrong with this picture?

    Tivo and CableLabs' delusion that there's really an issue here, when the cow has long ago left the barn.

    I was able to finally get this working on my TF101. I'm not sure which of these did the trick, but I started with OmniROM 4.4.4, unzipped it, modified build.prop, deleted "su", then zipped it back up.

    When I tried to install it, I got an error, but I just ignored it and tried rebooting. Low and behold, streaming works. I was forced into learning (a little) about Android custom ROMs, and wasted a weekend on it.

    Anyway, thanks for the hints, ccfries.
