    Is there any way to download and/or just watch shows on my old Tivo HD and Tivo HDXL that I still have going strong on an android phone or tablet? My wife would just like to watch shows in the kitchen on her tablet that are on the Tivo over in the living room, so will be on the same network as the Tivo.

    The tivo App doesn't work with the old versions of Tivo, they point you to the Tivo Classic Version of the App, and that app won't let me sign in with my ID, so it does not work. Any 3rd party apps out there to be able to do this?

    No. These are Series 3 models that do not support streaming and Tivo ended support. So, no access from either.

    You should be able to download the shows to a PC with either Tivo Desktop or pyTivo Desktop, decrypt and convert to something suitable for your Android tablet/phone, but then you need a means to stream or copy from our PC to your Android tablet/phone.

    I'd have PyTivo download and decrypt to a DropBox folder that syncs to the tablet. Use the VLC app to play maybe
