    I caught the new update early Tuesday morning. Works great thank you!

    I did have to go into the settings menu and explicitly turn streaming over lte on. My phone has unlimited data so not an issue. My tablet that was rooted can't stream though, bummer. I'm putting the original Rom back on (good bye unrestricted sdcard support). Since its data plan is limited I'm glad the default stream over lte is disabled.

    Sigh no Chromecast support

    Yes, it works!
    watching TV on my Galaxy Note. I thought this is only supposed to work with Roamio. I am streaming from my premier right now.

    Aren't there programs out there that'll do a temporary unroot? Our at least make your phone look like it's not rooted.

    As long as there is a Tivo Stream, whether the stand-alone one or built-in to a Roamio, on your home network, you can stream from any Tivo Premiere or Roamio DVR in you home.

    I've only tried it OOH over wifi bit it works pretty well. I'm hoping the speed has increased also. Video looks pretty good. The menu list is a bit bigger which was much needed.

    Down loaded it this morning on my Samsung Galaxy 3. So far so good. Sweet!

    So OOH streaming works on Android, with 4.1 or later?

    On WiFi?

    Is this true!?!?

    I still haven't found a way to get past the rooted device restriction. Tried every possible workaround I can find, none of them work.

    If I rememeber, the IOS guys had to work with the cloak software community to have tivo included. That may be necessary for android as well.

    So, do I have to configure it from inside my home network? Installed the update at work, but it can't setup the TiVo for streaming from here. It just errors.

    Streaming works great for me with Roamio and Asus Android tablet combo. However some shows won't stream. Comes up with prompt asking me if I want to delete the video.

    You should be able to setup your stream from outside your network. Has been working fine on iOS forever now, and Android has no issues when I set it up this morning. My only issue is I can't stream now since I am on a rooted device.

    I had that issue with videos that were transferred from my desktop to the Tivo using Tivo Desktop. Not sure if that is a limitation, bug, or feature not implemented yet. All shows recorded by the Tivo stream fine, so far.

    Hmmmm... I'm on a galaxy nexus from my office (wifi) and it just errors. I'll kill the app and try again.

    Just downloaded the app at work, trying to set up streaming (in home pre-checked, and I checked out of home and the disclaimer) but after I press "start setup" it says "not able to set up tivo stream."
    Streaming system info shows my TSN and Tivo name, but Status, software version, IP address, etc all shows "unknown."
    Full system info shows "unable to communicate with streaming device"

    Maybe I need to be at home for the first time I set it up?
    I'll try tonight at home. Hope it works.

    My Virgin Mobile LG Optimus F3 (LS720), w/ android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, got streaming to work, wifi at home. I know not G3 model, but wanted to show another datapoint.
    Audio was fairly choppy though. My Roamio Plus is on wired gigabit w/ N 2g/5g wifi router.
    P.S. tried on 4g LTE also, worked fine. Have to enable the setting for mobile streaming not just wifi, and I did set up streaming on home wifi first.

    Did not work on HTC Evo V 4g 3D :( that was Android 4.0 ICS I believe.
    Said Streaming not supported.

    Still waiting on Kindles.
    Since my HD 8.9 is 4.0 Android base,... not looking good.
