    I wish there was a "Device" link under "My Shows". for those of us that may have multiple Bolt's attached. Right now you have to go to "settings", "selected TiVo box" to change source DVRs.

    I realize the majority of folks only stream from one source DVR, but maybe "Device" could be context sensitive, and only appear when more than one streaming device is configured?

    Better still, what about an option for a unified playlist of all attached DVRs?

    I'm not saying I wouldn't ALSO want swipe to delete..

    BUT.. At least on the iOS version.. (I have no idea if the Android version has significantly different UI)..

    1) hit the three vertical dots icon
    2) hit edit
    3) select multiple items
    4) hit delete

    So IF you want to delete more than one item at a time, it's more convenient.. but if you only want to delete one (or use similar UI, without step 1, to delete items in the To Do list as you skim through it), it's less convenient.

    Another UI quirk -- if I switch views, e.g. go into a folder and then back out, THEN you see it scroll back to where I was.. I do that often since even with the % gauge, I leave suggestions on (even though I for all practical purposes never watch suggestions)... because the gauge is off.. I'm currently at 100%, but have 15 suggestions (and no recently deleted shows). (I got down to 4 suggestions last night, but one of them was ~13 gigs).

    Also noticed that the new app won’t connect to my premiere xl4 as I have configured my home router DHCP to a range larger than 254 devices (172.16.x.x/16).
    I get an error message “A network error has occurred”

    Never had that issue with the old app.

    I found I can only get it to connect if I assign an IP address that has the first three octets identical to that of the TiVo.
    E.g. (TiVo) and (IPad or iPhone) does not connect.
    But (TiVo) and (IPad or iPhone) connects.

    I guess I could do DHCP reservations as a workaround but the new app should be able to detect a local network like the old one did.

    Same here now but before my out of home downloading was much faster! (With 150 upload at home).

    This is a big downgrade if it’s not just a fluke tonight.

    App refuses to complete streaming setup for me - both in and out of home. Keeps giving me a message that setup did not complete. I've logged out, uninstalled, reinstalled, signed in, signed out, signed back in and still nothing. Have tried about 20 times now. Old app never gave me an issue.

    You're right. I was searching in the wrong search. Channels do show up in the guide search. The only issue is that when you search after pulling up the guide after opening the app it takes around 10-15 seconds for the channel to appear. After that it's quick.

    I really liked the numbers on the side and used them every single time I opened the guide. Though, I have to give the new Tivo app some credit. When I just opened it now it defaulted me to 502, which was probably the last place I was. So if it's going to leave you where you last were as opposed to starting at 1 all the time then I can manage.

    IIRC, on the old app the guide will open to the channel you are watching.

    Have you tried restarting the Tivo box?

    I don't need to hit play on my Android devices. One I select the option to watch on the phone/tablet, it starts playing right away. Just like with the old app.

    Just tried again on my Android phone (running Android 7.0) and verified it. I get 3 circles show up when I start the stream, the middle one with a ">" (play symbol) that I have to click on else it doesn't start playing itself automatically. If I don't click on the ">" symbol I just get black screen and spinning for several seconds and then it says "failed" and do I want to re-try with different quality.

    Not a big deal now I know about it, but certainly not intuitive.

    FWIW (and I don't doubt your experience one bit), it doesn't work that way on my iPhone. Choosing Watch>On iPhone starts playback with no further interaction.

    Just spitballing, could you be running anything special that could account for this, like a content blocker? Not really related, but I have a chrome extension that disables html5 audio/video autoplay tags(I hate when a site starts blaring at me when I'm not expecting video), and sometimes it has negative effects on some sites and I have to whitelist those.

    It seems the app will not accept all valid email addresses. I've got a address and the new app refuses to accept the + in the address. "You must enter a valid email address."

    So I cannot login. Guess I'll try support tomorrow.

    PS If you didn't know, all addresses of the form are directed to the account which is good for filtering and knowing who sells/leaks your information.

    In the past, I have only used the app to record shows when I wasn't home. Playing with the new app, I really like it and will probably use it a lot more in the future. I like it!

    Downloaded the new app ver. 4.1.0-1167450 and all I get after it says connecting is a bar that has the word "Reload" in it and it recycles over and over.

    Using Samsung Android on 4.1.0 today. The first load allowed me to do the speed test. After a reload I managed to crash it when trying to watch "live" TV. It worked ok, but then I went to exit and it died. There was a recording of the program on my Roamio, so that part was ok. I'll wait until the next release.
