That is not an app for TiVo control, it is an app for a hardware product called the "Slingbox". It is also one very expensive "app" ($30!!! In addition to having to purchase a Slingbox).There is an android app for tivo. Actually far more functional than the ipad app.
Its called slingbox for android. Full remote control. Full scheduling and full streaming of tivo video. Been using it for over a year and am always amazed at how well it really works. Even on older 3G networks.
The shows take so long to transfer mainly because they're huge. I think an app could be made that would view the recordings without having to transcode them. But you'd never be able to fit 9 HD shows on your tablet in the original format. Even one might be a stretch.Case in point, it took 2 hours to transfer 9 HD shows from my premiere and TiVo HD to my computer. But took another 10 hours to trans-code them so they were playable on my tablet.
Hey, that is a neat ideaIf I was tech-savvy I would try to use the Slide remote to get the proper bluetooth pairing/commands figured out and make an adroid app that controls via bluetooth just like the slide remote.
I am not, however, tech savy. Oh, and as far as you know this idea is patent pending...
I can do remote scheduling from my ipad, my blackberry and frankly any internet connected computer... That functionality has been around for a long time.Yeah, my Xfinity app allows remote scheduling---I just wish I could do the same for my TiVo.
It wouldn't be that hard for one of the android devs to make a wrapper for the android platform... That is one of the reasons I haven't been tempted to try out the android - just not as many developers on the platform.Um, but not in an Android app. Isn't that the thread topic?
Android phones now outsell all other smartphones. It passed Apple late last year, and finally RIM this year. There is already no shortage of developers and many more are jumping on all the time.It wouldn't be that hard for one of the android devs to make a wrapper for the android platform...
