    CBS lets you sign up to receive an email (after the game ends) with a revised Sunday night schedule. It would sure be sweet if that could go direct to the Tivo instead.

    I gave up and just schedule a manual recording block for whatever I plan to watch. My process:
    1) Check TitanTV to see what shows have new episodes because it will be Monday before Tivo.com loads the guide.
    2) If I'm home, watch(listen?) the end of sports for the tick of the clock on 60 Minutes to determine pad de jour to schedule start and stop.

    If I'll be out, manually record 9-midnight (assuming both Good Wife and Mentalist are new) and pray the pad covers.

    If you know both are new, maybe it is practical to record the Good Wife with no pad and a long pad on the Mentalist. But sometimes one is new, one is a repeat, so I think it pays to go week by week.

    That certainly use to be true. However, developing for Android 4.x is not very difficult anymore. iOS has fragmentation problems of its own, btw. As for the TiVo app on Android, it is utter garbage. And that has nothing to do with fragmentation. It clearly was written by a dev team that has little to zero Android experience. If TiVo were developing a game, I might agree that it would be difficult. But their app is not that complicated and adding encrypted streaming is even less of an issue as the Android API already supports it. The issue is TiVo just isn't putting any resources into updating the app. Perhaps one day they will hire their own dev team to create the app.

    As a rule we extend recording of the Mentalist by an hour. I suppose now that football is over we don't need to do that, but we watch it so quickly that the extra hour doesn't hurt anything.

    There was nothing dramatic about my statement. There is ZERO support for streaming to android!

    +1000 on the comment above. Developing for Android is no big deal....Tivo just hasn't prioritized it (or maybe they have). These days, you better have iOS and Android support for everything you have......there is absolutely no excuse otherwise. Tivo is playing an extremely dangerous game by ignoring Android (disclaimer...I have multiple iOS and Android devices in my house.....and everything I have better support both equally or you don't get my $$).

    We're getting ready to release the Spring Update. (Likely late next week.)

    The Priority List is now open: tivo.com/priority

    It says

    Your box is not eligible for a priority update at this time. If your box was provided by a cable company, it will be updated on a different schedule. If your box is a TiVo Roamio or a TiVo Mini it will be automatically updated the day the release becomes available.

    So I think it's pretty self explanatory.
