    How about the people that it's working for just AVOID this thread? Why even look at this thread if it's working great for you. Go enjoy your Tivo experience and let the people who are having problems try and get to the bottom of the issue.

    Because the subject line is WRONG.. and a new user coming in to the thread should know that the issue is for some users, not ALL users, and it's certainly not a majority of users.

    Yep, several times. Get the same issue on two different iPads - works one minute, not the next. Very frustrating.

    TiVo support says it's my network, then says I should connect the Roamio via Ethernet because my wireless is not up to snuff (I'm connected at 450Mbps, 98% signal strength), then it "might" work better if both devices were on wireless instead of one via Ethernet and the iPad via wireless, etc. - i.e., they don't know what's going on, either.

    All my TiVo devices (Roamio, Mini and Stream) are on the same Ethernet network.

    There is about 100% chance it is because your Roamio is wireless. Wireless performance on the Roamio is far from perfect. I've had issues streaming to Minis over wireless (using a newer Wireless AC router and almost 100% signal strenth). Wireless can cause all kinds of issues (like interference from neighboring routers) that you can't control. Personally, I have around 20 wireless networks available to me so no matter what channel I put mine on there are going to be collisions.

    You don't know the extent of the streaming problems either unless you work for Tivo .

    No, but I know TCF, and if streaming were as bad globally as you claim the community would be up in arms and we'd be swimming in threads about it.
    Had this thread been titled
    we wouldn't be having this discussion. PM a mod to change it and I'll walk away.

    Those of us that have been around a while have noticed folks coming in all guns blazing that their problem is the most important thing in the world and insisting that because it happens to them it must be global, well unfortunately that's not the case in this situation.

    I have never once in this thread suggested that either of the posters saying they are having issues isn't 100% accurate in the assessment of THEIR issues, it's posters implying that because they have the issue that by default everyone has the same problem that I take issue with.

    Folks are not implying that streaming is a problem for the majority of users you re just making an inaccurate INTERPRETATION of those comments By the way , do you have some solutions you can provide ????? Other then the delete app , reboot Tivo and reinstall the app?

    I got nuffin, as I've said multiple times, my system works, I've not needed to troubleshoot it.

    The only reason I've even bothered with this thread was to correct the glaring error in its title and make it clear to new posters that streaming does work and its performance is acceptable for many people.

    I agree. I also find it very unreliable. When it works, it works. When it doesn't, I can't watch anything until I go home and reboot the Tivo, which fixes the problem. Obviously, that's not very convenient if I'm away from home for a few days and want to watch something.

    For "many people " ?Once again , you don't really know the answer as to how many people are having problems .

    I'll ask again , do you have any possible solutions?

    Got outside my home again this morning after resetting my Roamio plus and going through setup again on the iphone app .

    The Roamio is hardwired to the router via a long cat 5 cable .

    Bring up the Tivo app and it says it appears the Tivo is not connected to the internet !

    Lol . A freakin joke .

    Sorry I didn't make myself clear - my Roamio is on a gigabit Ethernet connection. Only my iPads are wireless (of course).

    Maybe it's a blessing in disguise. Let the iOS crew be the beta testers.
