    Exactly, as mentioned before what you have is a lot of people living in the past pretending that this crap actually works, knowing full well that it's all easily worked around.

    I fail to understand why pissing off knowledgeable customers (who tend to influence others) makes for good business, but that's just me.

    Dollars to donuts Cable Labs requires this, and they do so because they get pressure from the content owners. Most of these people don't understand technology at all, they just say "we don't want the app to work on hacked devices" and TiVo has to comply.

    So does this work to allow streaming with a rooted device. I flashed the current original rom back on my galaxy tab 3 so I could stream.. If this works I'll root it again

    Yet there are still current rumors that the next Nexus phone will be available on Verizon Wireless.

    I have no idea what you are talking about, either, but mostly because I didn't say that. I said that "just buy a Nexus" is not a good alternative to a rooted phone. You know this is true because you yourself said that a rooted Nexus is more powerful. I don't want carrier specific garbage on my phone, and while "just buy a Nexus" solves that problem, it doesn't give you the kind of power that a rooted phone would give. I don't use a Nexus but if I did, it would be rooted already. I'm not sure why it isn't clear to you that I was specifically stating that a rooted phone is a desirable thing, counter to Captainbob's implication.

    And I said that rooting a Nexus is dirt-simple, the problem here is that you used a bad example vs. a carrier phone that's been unlocked.

    You're the one making the bad comparison. All I said is that an unlocked phone is not a good alternative to a rooted one. You yourself know this when you have admitted that a rooted Nexus is preferable to an unrooted one. I made absolutely no comment on how easy it is to root any phone, Nexus or otherwise. I was addressing Captainbob's notion that a Nexus (an unlocked phone) is the solution to everyone's problems.

    Short answer: it's not.

    So I guess no one has figured this out yet?

    You can unroot via the option in SuperSU then the Tivo app will stream. To reroot you could flash supersu.zip in recovery.

    As I've said elsewhere - that might work for you, but didn't for me. I unrooted and the app still claims "unauthorized changes"... so the "unroot and it'll work" isn't necessarily true.

    I think it only works on stock roms.

    I just want to clarify something. There are two options of interest in SuperSU. The first once is simply a checkbox to enable Superuser. Farther down the settings list is the option to do a complete uninstall. Did you choose the complete uninstall?

    Yes. It's clear that I did that because on reboot the supersu app icon is gone, and the apps I've got that require root also fail to work anymore.

    Are you on a stock rom? And what device are you using?

    Since the app icon is gone, I would say you did indeed uninstall it. But a few more points to clarify for others trying.

    If you just uncheck the 'enable superuser' in SUPERSU your apps that require root will fail. But that is not uninstalling.

    If you just go to the app manager and uninstall SUPERSU, the icon will disappear and apps that require root will fail. But Tivo streaming will not work.

    The only way is to do the uninstall from within SUPERSU. If you did that and it still doesn't work, obviously something else is going on.

    Not a stock ROM - but why would/should TiVo care about that? They should only be verifying (if even that) that the os isn't rooted.

    I read somewhere the the Tivo app does not stream at all on CM based ROMs or anything not stock roms.

    That may be - but I don't see that documented anywhere by TiVo, nor have they replied to verify that.

    It is hard to believe that TIVO is so anal about people who root devices. I tried to like Samsung's touchwiz... But right now I have chosen to keep my CM11 on TabS and NOT be able to stream. And, of course, make sure not to buy TiVo again.
