    And as of this date is transferring TiVo recordings to the SD card still not an option? At least my Dish Anywhere does allow the option to transfer recordings to external storage SD cards. I'd say it's a shame TiVo does not allow transfer of recordings the SD cards when at least dish does because in every other way TiVo is a fine DVR that offers streaming and transferring although neither as reliable as Dish Anywhere still if TiVo could allow us to transfer recordings to the SD card it would be worth putting up with all the TiVo Stream annoying and frustrating bugs.

    Reopening this thread re: downloading recordings to the SD card on Android. Any tricks to enable this???
    The weird thing is, my Samsung S5 let me move the Tivo app itself to the SD card, but any recordings will NOT download there as well.
    sd2528 and PCurry57 like this.

    Android 7 (nougat) added the "adoptable" SD card support where you can basically make an external SD card look like internal storage. Naturally, lots of companies that sell android devices immediately turned the feature off because they want you to pay more for extra storage, but if you happen to have a device that supports it, then downloads could go on the SD card because the app probably wouldn't know the difference. (Don't ask me which devices allow adoptable storage because I don't know - my tablet certainly doesn't).
