|Network Access? To this? Access denied buddy!|
It also means that the chances of multi-room streaming have (for now) taken a step backwards since TiVos running the new software won't be able to see each other on the same home network.
Virgin have posted a response in the Help & Support Forums:
Hi I just wanted to confirm that we're piloting a small new code release for TiVo in a small number of areas at the moment.While this news would indicate that authorized Virgin software to access TiVo is coming soon (like the TiVo Buddy app), this news hasn't gone down well with the developers of third-party software and the users of that software.
In addition to a number of fixes after this software release a number of unsupported apps will cease to work as these apps create stability risks to our TV platform.
We know you're interested in using this sort of companion app so we're hard a work adding adding new features to our forthcoming TiVo Buddy app which we'll be launching later this year.
