    Only side effect I've noticed is that the Google Play Store wants to update the Kindle App, and the Fire OS won't allow it. So I just unchecked the automatic update for the Kindle App in the Google Play Store.

    of course, you have to now log into your Google account if you have one, correct?

    Yes, you have to log into Google Play Store to use it. If you update the Kindle App with Google Play, it never completes and the native Fire OS Kindle App resets. Then, Google Play will indicate an update is still available, which I ignore.

    You can still install apps from Amazon App Store. Installing Google Play Store doesn't affect that functionality.

    Cool. Thanks. If you uninstall the Google apk's, will TiVo 3.2.5 remain?
    PS - the install went fine, and now TiVo is up and running on the Fire HD 8 :)

    I haven't uninstalled Google Play. I never really saw the need. I like having the option of having 2 sources for apps.

    I think you'd be fine uninstalling the Google apks. Let us know if it breaks anything.

    No, the TiVo Android app won't work on the Fire TV. Only solution is to file enough complaints to TiVo to motivate them to update the Fire TV app.

    Sideloading the android TiVo app 3.2.5 on nVidia Shield TV (which uses Android TV OS) doesn't work.

    Dang it. I don't get it. It's almost 2018 and no viable apps for streaming devices?? I get that Tivo wants to sell Minis, but at $175 a pop it's not a realistic idea in mass. And there are only a couple of streaming apps on it. Why not provide a roku/firetv/xbox app which is tied to an account, and sell it for a nominal fee? Expand your user base.

    Follow up. My Kindle Fire tablet 10 (last year version) got an update this week. App is now working again. However, the existing programs I had on before the fix are grayed out and says they have "expired" and the only thing I can do is delete them. Sigh...

    My FireStick is for use outside the home. Vacationing, recovering from surgery, while visiting parents out of state, etc. It's nice to just pop in your FireStick and watch your programming. I'm not really much for watching it on the tablet. My current workaround is to use the mirror cast feature on the stick and tablet but sometimes that can be a little choppy.

    OK, nearly a full month now since TiVo "broke" the login/authentication link used by the TiVo App (Beta) for Amazon Fire TV and it is still not fixed. How hard can it be to issue an update to an App? Does the company not care that they have reduced the functionality of the Bolt for some customers?
