Anyone else have an ICS device working with BHTV not shown on the list? Please post a pic of it working on your ICS along with the make and model.

Is there an estimated time for when the app will work on a Google Nexus 7 tablet?

I just got one and Google Play states "Your device isn't compatible with this version". But I have heard that it works with tricks, but I hope I don't have to do that.

It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (newer than ICS).

I am kinda shocked it is not compatible with future versions of ICS. I guess this is why I still love iOS, never had an old app tell me it was incompatible/wont install just cause I upgraded my OS. -_-

Unfortunately with Android each rev needs to be certified as compliant. As devices migrate to this platform I expect things to update BUT that is only if its compliant. Just because Google says it is won't fly...it will be tested first.

While this may be true for many of the members here; rooting is not something many average people/users do. Lets not forget that ROOTING voids most manufacturer warranties and those who root KNOW this and are willing to take the chance.

Further; the limitation is not placed by BHN; but by content owners as certain DRM parameters/requirements were not really met until later versions of Android were introduced.

As has been said in many of the threads here; just because you do; do not expect others to do the same.

I am not a fan of rooting unless you have superior technical skills and can afford to toss the device away should things go horribly wrong and it does happen. I get the premise behind doing it but....and it's a big but...do so at your own peril.

reply to AMejia1976
ahhh well i did not want to get too deep into the politics of it but...

truth is YES i want to use MY own network with the device. ( requires root )

truth is YES i would like to be able to see my own systems files ( similar to hide system files (( options.. )) in view files in windows. again requires root )

truth is YES i want to be able to plug a usb keyboard, usb mouse, usb stick, or usb HDD into my device ! ( since it is limited to no media port again root is required.. )

did i legally buy the device YES. is rooted ? of course.

do i pay a bill already for the service and just want what they advertise as working all year ? ...

ok the limitation is not placed by BHN fine but one would tend to think BHN is no different then any other cable provider such as TW ( time warner which swapped territories with BHN here in s.fl some years ago ) whom has sensibly dropped the denial of service to rooted devices in their latest app.

do i have the latest version of android yes i am running jelly bean v4.1.2 so the DRM parameters/reqs are met according to your own statement

did i get it to work with my device YES ( even tho its listed as device not supported when you go to install the BHN app ) so i know its fully capable and possible just as the users/customers over at TW do with out having to beg. )

anyways just saying and i am not trying to fight, argue, or ridicule anyone. just to get the service to work for me as it does for others.

PS - do i want to root my device ? no not really .. am i forced to ? apparently if i want to use it for anything other then a door stop.

Well see, ya rooted your device and that's the issue. I have a non-rooted tablet that runs the app perfectly and I have no complaints .

Zip, you are wrong, the drm requirements for 4.x are NOT met on rooted devices.
