    Sorry, I took this as her thinking (hinting) the deleted show may still be in the Deleted Items folder:

    Silly me!

    Thanks for checking that though. I agree in the home side loading only defeats a lot of its usefulness.

    Maybe it's the program I downloaded, but every now and then I'm seeing the video freeze for a second on playback. The audio keeps going, but the video freezes and then resumes.

    Also in away mode, it would be nice if the TiVo app would have the ability to launch the Netflix, Amazon and VUDU apps.

    I found something cool in the new app. Apparently it knows about other apps and when shows are available there. For example, when I viewed "Sons of Liberty" on the app on my iPad, an option to "Watch from HISTORY" appeared. Tapping that opens the History Channel app and starts playing the episode there. Very cool. On my iPhone where the History app isn't installed, it took me to the App Store.

    For some reason though, the Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and Vudu apps are not supported. The only option for those is to watch or buy on TV. If away from home, those options are grayed out.

    Yeah, I noticed that as well.

    I REALLY want them to add Netflix and Amazon IOS integration. It would be fantastic for "away from home" viewing.

    At this point I expect a 3.5.1 update for the TiVo iOS app to be available by Wednesday.

    It will have fixes for the time zone issue and the in-home streaming issue.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Downloaded and tested tonight.

    I was able to successfully download a protected show (from HBO) to an iPad. It warned me that it would delete from the TiVo when it was complete. When it finished, the show played fine on the iPad, and the copy on the TiVo was gone. (How sad, I might need to record one of the other 350 airings of the same movie.)

    As expected, the Premiere does not allow downloads of protected content. (Yet.)

    When I clicked the info tab to see what's on, it timed out or was blank on both iPhone and iPad. I had to select a Premiere and look at the info tab for it before switching back to the Roamio and getting info to work. (Why can't I see info for a Mini? I want to see what's being viewed on them and get info.)

    The help button still takes me to a missing webpage on tivo.com.

    Everything else works, if you can call the TiVo Live Guide "working." Can we get a grid guide on the app please?

    Just my one small comment, bring back the old white Tivo logo and get rid of the light blue Tivo logo. The older logo was easier to spot on the iPad/iPhone

    Old logo is much better.

    We are really going to complain about the icon?

    We've had the update since last Friday and I'm still getting used to the new 1P.

    Something I don't understand is...

    If I create a 1P on my iPad, the option to "rent or buy" defaults to "don't include" and is greyed out. Yet, if I go to TiVo and set up the same identical 1P, the option to rent/buy is open for me to select one or the other.

    Does anyone know why this is?

    Because you have "include" set to recordings only. You have to choose Recordings and Streaming Services or just Streaming services for that option to be available. :D

    App v3.5.1 solves my time zone issue. I still can't download premium content. I think I need a Stream software update for that. Any ideas when that is coming?

    It appears that the option to sort "My Shows" alphabetically no longer works with this update. They automatically sort by date, but when I hit the tab for "A-Z" nothing happens.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    I have no problem d/l'ing premium content. Not sure what is happening on your end?

    Also, the update says it addresses the streaming issue.

    In "My Shows" press the blue "B" button. I just did it now and it sorted A-Z perfectly. Pressing "B" again returns it to date order.
