"Does not work with Jailbroken devices."1.0 starson by jelwell
Watch different shows on TV than on device.
Cons: Does not work with Jailbroken devices.
Doesn't work away from home.
Doesn't work with Laptops.
Doesn't work with Android devices - and with Android's open marketplace I can't imagine it ever will. Many Android devices ship jailbroken.
Summary: If you've ever jailbroken your device, don't waste your money.
If your iPhone or iPad has ever been jailbroken TiVo won't let the TiVo app launch. They don't mention this in their requirements. The error they give is "Unauthorized Modifications Detected This app may not run if unauthorized modifications have been made to iOS."
The Library of Congress ruled that I am authorized to modify/jailbreak my phone. That TiVo's application doesn't allow modifications should be clearly stated in their requirements.
Given the draconian restrictions on launching their application one should be worried about their ability to continue support for future hardware releases. Clearly they need tight control over the hardware in order to allow the application to run. This is likely why you don't see laptop support, and Android support or Windows 8 tablet support is likely to be hampered by those devices open hardware/software paradigm.
Thanks for your submission!
