    Thanks for posting the link. I'm not holding my breath, but one of the commenters said that streaming to rooted devices works now. If true, this is extremely exciting!

    I'll see if the update is available to me when I get home. I may be able to lug my Nexus9 to the gym.

    I like the new interface with the updated app. It seems to make better use of the space available on the screen to show more info and use less space for menus, etc. OnePass support is a plus, too.

    Streaming to my HP TouchPad (running 4.4.4 via CyanogenMod 11-20140625-jcscullins-tenderloin) still doesn't work. Stills says, "Unauthorized Modifications Detected."

    i am playing with it using DUOos on my surface pro... and looks and feels nothing like the IOS version anymore!

    Now updated and tried on both my phone and tablet. Both are just SO much faster and better in every way. It streams first time now with no forever-long spinning circle (and frequent failures). I do wish the phone version was not locked in portrait mode. There is also no way to change the "preferred" DVR once you accidentally select the wrong one at first run (but I am not sure what that does, anyway). Would also be nice if we could set a preferred "home" screen (I just want to see the "My recordings" always, first thing, by default).

    Have not tested out-of-home streaming yet on this version to see if it works better than before. Also still has no copy-to-device mode yet.

    Crazy long time coming, but I have to say that from what I have seen, this is first rate! Wish we had this two years ago...

    Surprised that that option doesn't exist - I looked, and I will be damned if I can find it. I Suppose the only option is to do an app reset and log back in - not that big of a deal - just odd that it isn't an option.

    Not true, just tap on the selected DVR on the upper left. A drop down well open you can then select another dvr. When you close and reopen that will be the default. That is to say the default when you start the app will be the last selected DVR. This functionality was the default throughout the beta. Lost however is share on Facebook, Twitter....

    Haven't used it yet but at least it set up streaming on my LG G3, which it hadn't been able to do before.

    Had problems before with my LG G3 before as well, but can now set up streaming and streaming works well. It is about time this was fixed. Used app and TiVo finally got it right.

    The new upgrade is nice. I liked some of the UI on the tablet better before, but this one is fine too. The Onepass additions are great and the speed is fantastic!

    BUT...why is there still no downloading on android?! :confused: This has been on ipad for a long time. For me this is the most important feature. My only real usage for watching TiVo on mobile is on a plane and on a treadmill at the gym and wifi is not an option. In other words...I want TiVo on mobile when I am MOBILE.

    Please add download capability!

    It is on the roadmap. Would you rather they waited and incorporated at the same time?

    While the new app looks fantastic, I'm still unable to stream to a rooted device. A Nexus 9 in this case. Can any more rooted users chime in with their experiences?

    Thanks

    I can stream on my Note 10.1 and on my HTC M8. The M8 is running a custom ROM, the Note is not.

    But like justen_m I am unable to stream on my HP Touchpad.

    All 3 devices are rooted and were unable to stream with the previous version.

    Interesting
    After trying it on the N9, (failed) I didn't try it on the G3. Both rooted
    Both devices had the previous version of the app installed.

    To test, I'm going to completely uninstall from the N9
    a. Force stop
    b. Clear cache (app)
    c. Clear data (app)
    d. Uninstall
    e. Reboot to recovery (TWRP)
    f. Wipe both cache & dalvik cache
    g. Reboot
    h. Reinstall

    Probably too many steps, but it's easy enough to do and makes sure any lingering app data is completely removed.

    Somewhat true. Perhaps TiVo just doesn't like CyanogenMod

    1) Phone app on Unrooted Galaxy S4 - Streams
    2) Phone app on Rooted Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0 - Streams
    3) Tablet app on HP Touchpad running Cyanogen - Won't stream. "Unauthorized modifications"

    That's possible. My Note 10.1 (actually 2014 edition) is running stock Kit Kat and my M8 is running a custom ROM but it's based on stock. It it not Cyanogenmod or AOSP based. Needless to say, there is no stock Android ROM for the Touchpad.
