    Downloading works, but still can't play the downloaded show due to unauthorized modifications still, at least in my experience.

    You're absolutely right and this app still stinks. Must modify my tablet due to vision impairment and still can't watch content I've paid for.
    Ridiculous

    Anyone tried using 3.1 on a Kindle Fire HDX? Not available on Amazon, so I side loaded, but it seems buggy...

    I'm getting "hardware codec not supported" message while loading video. :/

    Which Android version? How is it on poor connections? Does it recover or drop completely?

    I'm on 5.1.1. I have not used the new app with a poor connection yet. 99% of the places I'm at get LTE.. With the old app I remember having an issue when I was at the waiting room at the hospital and switching over to my Slingplayer. But so far I've not run into anything with the new app.

    I'll need to try the new app the next time I'm at my GFs house. She has slow 1.2Mb/s DSL internet. So I'll turn off my mobile data and stick to her WiFi to see how it does.

    Sometimes the apps on the Amazon store don't update for several days or a couple weeks...hopefully a Fire version is coming.

    Has anybody had there video quality while out of home streaming go down? After this update my video quality is now staying at 2 bars before I had almost full bars most of the time.

    I may have to do this. Holy smokes. I tried streaming an episode of Fast n Loud to my phone on my OWN wifi in my house, from my Roamio Plus downstairs, and it was horrible. I had to stop and restart the video 2 or 3 times for it to finally even start. Then when it started, it would play for a few seconds, then buffer, then play for a few seconds, then buffer.

    In contrast, from the exact same spot, I then tried using my slingplayer(which sits right on top of the Roamio and uses the same switch/network path to the router) and streamed what was playing on my Tivo, to my phone flawlessly.

    Something isn't right with this app.

    Are you sure you got the latest update from a few days ago? You are describing exactly what I used to see all the time, but it is working great now after the update.

    Yes , I have the version that allows downloading. I tried it here at work and streaming the same episode over cellular was great.

    I'll check it again tonight over my home wifi.

    It's probably because your traffic had to go through their proxy server before going back to your connection. Lord knows why they even have a proxy server, don't see any benefits to it. :confused:

    It probably has to do with the copy protection cr@p that they have to deal with.

    In any event, I tried again last night and things were fine. Hopefully it will continue.
