Android app for the Virgin Media TiVo
on 15.2 firmware only
Want to use your Thomson tivo with Virgin Media cable ?
The new 15.2 update for Virgin Media's TiVO box enables the built in network port
which will eventually be used for TiVo to TiVo multi room streaming of recordings.
Unfortunately that feature isn't available yet - but the enabling of the ethernet port has opened up the possibility of using apps designed for the similar USA TiVo Premiere:
