    I hope Multi-Room Streaming is fully added to the Virgin Media TiVo sooner rather than later.

    And me. I am looking forward to not having to watch some of SWBMO programmes but still being able to choose my own from the other Tivo

    It is a shame that VM don't make better use of the VM forum and Twitter to keep us updated on what is going on OR send a message via the Tivo

    If that is true (do we know if the person posting it works for VM so would know, or is he just guessing?) then it sounds like it's akin to Apple stopping un-official apps from working. Which I can understand, I suppose.

    If it is the only thing that was changed then it is not understandable at all at the moment. There is NO official app in the UK.

    The 3rd party remote apps are a huge advantage Tivo has over other platforms. Why would VM shoot themselves in the foot by removing the functionality? Doesn't make any sense.

    Edit: A quick scan shows they've removed the multiroom functionality too - VM Tivos no longer have mdns broadcast or send out beacons. Makes me wonder why they spent so long getting the networking working only to rip it out again.

    "at the moment" being the important bit there.
    It was only a thought :)
    Problems, bugs, something unstable? Again, just a thought.

    Yes that was my point. If there WAS an official app (yes I know it's "coming soon") I have NO issue with the unofficial apps being barred.

    VM removing functionality just weeks before my 12 months is up.. Not good marketing IMO (I'd probably go all IP if I ditched Tivo.. couldn't cope with Sky+ again).

    VM have confirmed that part of the update is specifically to stop 3rd party apps from working as "these apps create stability risks to our TV platform."

    Very annoying - they shouldn't have stopped this functionality until they release their own app.

    I'd prefer a stable Tivo to any un-official app :)

    Haven't managed to crash my TiVo with the third party apps I've used. Only with (gestures) on tivo's own (US) app. The only other crashes are ones it's had all by itself ;)
    Still love TiVo though.

    I only used TiVo Commander for a short time and did find it locked up TiVo on more than one occasion.

    Only used it as I had two TiVo in same room - and using slide remote now.
