    Well I got the update! I'll report back if I find I still have problems but I noticed an immediate difference. Using the slider to seek through a show at random points results in very quick playback, whereas before it would take a while and freaquently time out with an error. Also the stream had its software updated at the same time, so it makes since now that this update provides a fix.

    I got the update almost a month ago and I have not had an issue yet. I have not had a single "problem streaming" or "unknown error" and I haven't once had it simply stop playing at the end of the recording and keep my iPad awake all night. It's been (knocks on wood) rock solid for me.

    On vacation again and OOH streaming has been a total failure continuously giving this "unknown error" BS during streaming. I was actually able to download a program instead overnight at basic quality but even during playback with airplane mode on my iPad I keep getting this stupid "unkwown error". So then I turned to my usually trusty Slingbox only to find the Mini that feeds the slingbox is frozen (not responding to remote control even in RPC mode), so no alternative available.
    OOH streaming has been worthless to me on almost every occasion I've tried it.

    I don't really use OOH. I mainly stream in home. Since getting the new update I never get "problem streaming" errors any more. So it's been perfect, in home. I have a business trip in April which will likely be the first chance I'll get to try OOH again. I guess we'll see how that goes.

    There seems to be some groundwork in the software, and the docs on TiVo's site, pointing to the ability to simply open a port on your router and bypass the proxy. I wonder if/when they enable that if it will alleviate these issues? Or if it's the Stream itself causing them?

    Yes in home I don't have issues, but for me in home is of little value since I'd rather watch on a big screen. I was able to get a neigbor to pull the plug on the Mini at home to reset it and the Roamio Pro. Initially Stream worked for a while after that but then problem came back again. So back to Slingbox again. Not anywhere as good for trick play but at least the darn thing works reliably.

    You can reboot the Stream from the System Info screen in the app. I think it even works remotely.
