    A couple of things confirmed at CES from Engadget.

    App will be free.
    Two streams to third party devices.
    Data from Thuuz to extend recordings of sporting events that run long.

    TiVo will add apps for smart TV boxes and WiFi for Mini this year

    Got a source on that? I'm starting to consider some other options, but if this is likely to actually happen, I'll sit tight for a while before buying anything new.

    STOP!!! What does this have to do with TiVO CES 2019?! There are enough TE3 Hydra threads that have beat that topic to death. It’s really simple to create a new thread post.

    The poster needs 20k posts to be number 1. Expect anything. :)

    My apologies. In all the excitement I lost track of where I was. Deleted the post. Carry on. :oops:

    I honestly thought it was either a rhetorical question or a really bad attempt at trolling. Like walking into a Star Wars convention and asking if it's possible to do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.

    Any details as to whether Roamio devices with Tivo Stream will work with new streaming apps? Anyone care to speculate if resolution (in network) will be any different different vs. Bolt?

    Sadly true. I can't count the number of times I've gotten single-digit Wi-Fi speeds in parts of people's houses, and then I go stand next to their router and they're got 50 or 100mbps cable or FiOS.

    Although the margins are lower, I thought TiVo had several times more MSO subs than retail? Nonetheless, on the retail side, that analysis is correct, I just hope they continue to do retail and don't just give up on it for the MSO market.

    Wracking my brain right now. I know i read it somewhere. I've been searching TCF with no luck. Hopefully someone in the know will chime in.

    So these new TiVo apps for Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV will all receive streams that have been transcoded into H.264 at 720p (for all HD channel content) or 480p (for all SD channel content), correct? I assume that's how the current iOS and Android mobile apps from TiVo work and I seem to recall Zatz saying these new apps would top out at 720p. I'm also guessing sound tops out at stereo...

    I recall seeing it mentioned on Dave Zatz’s blog, (That it was in the pipeline.). And that it would require the Mini to be on Hydra, which means the host TiVo would obviously have to be on Hydra too. Resistance may soon be futile :-/

    I am glad to see this. I gather from reading the Engadget article that it will use existing Minis, but have an optional adapter.

    This next-gen TiVo platform on Android TV is being used -- or will be used (not sure if it's yet been deployed) -- by TDS Telecom, per their announcement back in July. At least in their case, it appears that the TiVo Android TV boxes they use are for IPTV, so they don't contain QAM tuners or a CableCARD, and only use network (i.e. cloud) DVR, so they don't contain hard drives.

    I second this question. I would guess that the new app will work with a TIVO Stream in the loop on your Network.

    At least I hope so. I have a TIVO Stream(and older Mini) gathering dust in a drawer. So if this is true and it will work with a Roamio, then the TIVO Stream, at least, will have renewed life for me.

    So do we have any specific confirmation that you need a Bolt to use the new app on firetv, roku or apple tv? What about the wifi adapter?
