      You have left! (?) (thinking…)

      Sorry for not getting back to you on this. I’m not completely gone, but my day job takes up much more of my time than the one I had when I wrote the app (and especially so at this time of year).

      I imagine what’s happened is that they’ve stopped accepting the security certificate I use. If so then I’ll need to extract a new one from the official Android app,

      I do use the app myself, so I’ll try and look at it at some point!

        • Android phones

          I love this app. Had it for 2 years on my windows phone. Any plans to release it for Android.?

          • now and next

            If you could show the programs in a 'now and next' style, as well as being able to choose a particular time to view, that would be awesome.

            • Have a virtual remote control for Home mode

              Have a photo of a tivo remote on it's own page, that can be acrolled up and down, then have the buttons send remote IR control commands via IP to the tivo box that is currently connected. There is a webpage somewhere that I found on google a while ago with sample socket data to send to the tivo, and a table of all the correct strings for each button.

                This is definitely possible, although I’d probably not be able to use the TiVo layout, as that’s one of the things their lawyers apparently consider “theirs”.

                TBH, though, I’ve not been finding much time to work on the app much this year (not least as my new day job has a much longer commute and the WiFi on my laptop has gotten flakey). I keep meaning to get to it, but it just never seems to happen.

                It’s on the list, though!

                • Cortana integration would be great

                  Asking Cortana to n record tv series, set a series link, show you what's on tv at a certain time or date would be amazing!!

                  • Convert to universal app to also support win 8 tablets

                    I'm not sure how difficult this would be, but it would be great to be able to use this app on tablets as well.

                        If this is what I’ve been seeing myself (and with several other users) then it seems to be a problem with either the TiVo itself or Virgin’ servers. You need to reboot the TiVo to get it working again.
                        This does remind me that I ought to put some info about this on the website, and better error reporting in the app. though. I’ll leave this idea open until I’ve done that.

                            • add the ability to favorite channels

                              There are a lot of channels on vm. It would be good if the app allowed you to favourite a selection of frequently watched channels and view them as a separate list

                              • Add play mode for live shows.

                                This app is better as a TV guide than using Virgin's remote, so easy to discover shows we want to watch - therefore it would be good to hit play now (like we can for recorded shows) rather than having to pick-up the 'proper' remote.

                                  Could you put left and right buttons on the guide page to jump forward and back, say, an hour at a time. Time picker would further enable more accurate or bigger jumps. By the look of it you could squeeze a button either side of the time at the bottom of the guide.

                                      If you could add that underneath the play button, that would be brilliant. Your app is better than the tivo remote. Cheers.

                                        Sometimes auto-discovery doesn't work. In that case it would be nice to be able to enter the IP address manually.

                                        • Implement a scrollable EPG

                                          Could the EPG scroll sideways to see programmes at different times, rather than having to keep manually changing the time with the picker at the bottom?
