    Well the app doesn't see my Tivo HD! Both are connected to my home Wifi. It needs a manual setup so I can put my Tivo's ip addresses. Oh well.

    Is the Tivo still around? I remember Currys and Comet in the UK having massive promotions on the things a few years ago, then they suddenly disappeared. A video DVR device with a hard-drive wasn't it?

    TiVo App is now available on Android phones and select tablets. This is a great application because it makes tasks easier, quicker, more efficient, and better. TiVo

    It better be! I've got a lifetime sub. on my Tivo HD. And yes it's a hard drive based DVR. The first I believe.

    I ♥ my Tivo. Not only for TV shows, but I use gPodder and Tivo Desktop to download web videos (RSS video podcasts, YouTube, etc) to my computer then upload them to Tivo HD automatically. I can stream home videos off my computer to my 42" LG HDTV via Tivo. It's very versatile.

    I think "Lost" was the last show I actually watched "live", just cause I couldn't wait for each episode. Everything else is time shifted, hours or days after recording it.

    Of course I upgraded the hard drive a couple of times. First from the original 160Gb HD (20 hours) to 750Gb (113 hours), now with a 2Tb drive. That's 318 hours of HD video!

    Now if only the official Tivo app would "see" my Tivo. Wish they'd take a hint from RCX for Tivo and allow manual IP entry for Tivo location.
