Here's the information I got in the post from Virgin Media today on the imminent TiVo update. Note that the Spotify App will launch on TiVo on November 29th!

Anymore news on the iPad app?

I was hoping it would be released along with the update.

Richard said...

The have stated it will be shortly after rollout of the f/w upgrade.

Imagine what would happen if they released it now... some people with and some without the right f/w. Crashes left right and centre due to people not having the upgrade.
Chaos and complaints because people want things 'now'.. complaints about why havent they rolled out in my area etc.

I listen to enough moans because people are impatient. Can we just pause and wait a little longer so we dont get the grip squad on the case.

@ianJ do you have to have the new firmware for tivo commander to work and is it easy to set up

IanJ said...

The commander will need the update, as you then add the system to your home network and obtain an ip address, you then enter those details in commander along with a key code you get from the setup on the TIVO.

I wonder what "And much,much more." means ?

Could the BBC Red button app and Sky Sports red button app launch around the same time as the spotify app ?

Richard said...

@HD Boy
speculate all you want, but don't build up your expectations.
I think you will be disappointed if you expect Red Button apps will work this side of christmas.
Nothing in the public domain has ever indicated this will happen.

Read this then

"We are working with our content partners to extend this with new Red Buttons services before the end of this year."

Why only have the txt search in tv programs and not on demand service aswell, It takes ages to find the song's/artist's you want to listen to!!!!
