I'm honestly starting to think it's because TiVo just sucks. They promised us streaming apps like this 4-5 years ago and it never happened. Then they said last year they were scrapping them all except the AndroidTV version, and that still never got released. The Edge was just a minor hardware refresh of the Bolt and they somehow managed to release that with breaking bugs, some of which still haven’t been fixed. And the TiVo app on the 4K feels like something that was thrown together by one guy in a few weeks and is barely useable.
Maybe they've just laid off their entire engineering staff and are subbing this stuff out to guys on fiver now, I don't know. But they haven’t done anything quality in at least a few years.
