    I'm curious why the Vudu app isn't available on Edge yet. Is the Edge hardware or software that much different than previous TiVo’s. Are they rebuilding the app from scratch?

    Your header is a bit deceiving. I took it as an announcement. :)

    Wondering if there is an update about Vudu and Disney Plus. Tivo is becoming irrelevant if it doesn't support more apps soon.

    Is there an update when Vudu will be supported on TiVo Edge? Vudu is in all the Edge advertisement, but still no working app.

    Vudu is everywhere. Hard to believe it is not on the Edge.

    They did announce that the next Mini would run Android TV, so it will essentially be a streaming device with a TiVo UI. If they pull it off well then maybe the TiVo itself just becomes a headless recorder and we just use the new Mini everywhere as the main streamer.

    They also announced back at the beginning of the year they were working on apps that will essentially run like the Mini but on 3rd party devices like Roku, Apple TV, etc... but so far those haven't materialized even though they were promised for Q3. :(

    In troubleshooting netflix/dolby vision issues with my tv/tivo the other day I found a reproducible issue where if I set my video resolution to 4k/60fps and 1080i (for my cable connection, it just looks better this way) and turn HDR on, netflix will start with messed up colors 100 percent of the time, then netflix will properly passthru dolby vision. If i exit out of netflix while watching something with dolby vision the entire GUI interface of the tivo is gone. I can only watch live TV, if i hit guide, or try to pull up settings the picture gets small and goes to the right but all menus are gone and its just black until i reboot the TiVo.

    They changed some things with the edge and HDR so my guess is the vudu app does something just as horrible but even if you have your display set to 4k 60fps (if i set mine to 4k 60fps with HDR auto my input on my TV crashes about 95 percent of the time so support gets to blame my TV instead). So its probably a good idea that someone is redoing the vudu app, this probably requires a decent amount of re certifications as well. But yeah it would be nice to have it back.

    A projected date when vudu will be available would be nice. Available soon is not an acceptable answer to the paying customers. If using an app in your advertisement to sell a product it should be working.

    I agree. Purchased Edge with the understanding that Vudu is available as advertised. I have a Vudu library and frustrating to have to switch from Tivo to view. Tivo please provide an update. Loyal Tivo users like myself paid good money for Edge with the understanding that all features advertised were in fact available. False advertising! Either remove Vudu from Edge or provide date. To add insult to injury, after paying good money, CEO tells us to get over it and streaming is the future. Great, but where were you when I forked over my money for Edge? Obviously a End of life product sold as new.

    This is ridiculous, Vudu still is not available on the Edge! TiVo product support is nonexistent. I’ve been a loyal TiVo customer for over 10 years, but that’s about to stop. I’m done with this crap product/company.

    Agreed. They now have a new 4K device boasting vudu streaming but I'll bet it's not supported on that device either.

    I'm beyond frustrated with this company. Long time customer here, multiple devices, yada yada yada...like so many of us. No updates to what's supposed to be their premier device and not even any comment about what's going on. Can't get a peep from anyone at this company....honestly, they deserve what happens to them at this point.

    I could care less who owns it. Tivo needs to get the app working on the Edge.

    I disagree. Vudu already streams 4k to all my other devices. Tivo has indicated it doesn't work on the Edge. I'm sure Tivo has aproprietary apps for the all the streaming services they support.

    Tivo doesn't write apps for third parties.
