    And you could be completely wrong; i.e., the issue could be quite widespread and you and a few others are just lucky. No data either way.

    I have all the same issues. Generally very unreliable streaming and downloading. App freezes, streaming stops, downloads don't complete, etc.

    I'm not blaming the streaming function at this time because it seems there are so many c133 errors, that is likely the culprit.

    TCF would be absolutely swimming in "OOH streaming doesn't work" threads if it was that bad, just look at how fast the C133 error threads multiplied.

    If there's one thing TCF members are, it's that they're vocal.

    You don't know that either .

    C133 was affecting all Tivo users.

    Do you have some stats on percentage of Tivo users using OOH streaming per day ?? If you
    don't then you really don't know the answer to how many people are having problems .

    You can't compare the quantity of C133 posts with OOH posts .

    I'm sorry, but your insistence that I prove a negative of an issue that doesn't widely exist isn't going to happen.
    I get it, I get that you and the other posters having the problem are ticked at Tivo, I can respect that. However saying my example isn't valid doesn't count, I was showing that TCF can be vocal and for that the example is pretty clear.


    As long as posters make blanket statements trying to scare folks away from OOH streaming, I and others will keep making the counter argument that it can and does work for people.

    Once again you don't know the extent of the problems . Your just guessing .

    No one but Tivo has data on this .

    I'm really tired of this, multiple posters have come in to this and other threads on the subject and pointed out that there are good experiences to be had out there, but you're so focused on your bad experience you won't let it slide; instead you insist that our data is invalid. I will continue to point out that TCF users are a very good measuring metric, and if anything when an issue happens it's over-reported here because people rarely come to a forum to say "hey, all is good"


    I will not "prove" my point, I let the lack of constant posts other than a few from a handful of users speak to my point and I will continue to participate so that new viewers to the threads understand that the issue is not as widespread as a handful of posters are suggesting.

    One more data point... It's been working fine for me. I don't doubt the issues out there, but I'm in the camp that we'd be seeing a lot more complaints here if this were a massively widespread problem.

    You don't know this either. What percentage of all Tivo users are really using OOH streaming on a given day . I suspect its not a very high percentage .

    Vacation , on business , maybe a wait at a doctors office ,at the gym? .

    Any Tivo employee have a stat on OOH streaming attempts as a percentage of total Tivo customers ? 10,20,30 percent ?

    Saying just because you don't see more posts about this means nothing . How do you know many just didn't CALL tech support ?
    Do you have that data? Others I'm sure simply don't bother to post . For sure you will never have data on that.

    For the umpteenth time, if anything TCF over-reports any problem that comes up in the Tivo world, we're a more vocal and tech savvy group. To even suggest that we're not seeing reports of the issue because people are just giving up and that the data isn't valid because we're not Tivo employees is just silly.

    You're so stuck on being right on this that you can't see the forest for the trees.

    So I ask you once again , what stats do you have other then the number of posts in the forum ???

    All you have is the number of posts , right ? Hardly a indicator of the extent of any problems considering OOH streaming is probably used my a small percentage of users each day .

    Do you have that stat you can share with us ?

    Is there any chance you two can take this idiotic argument to PMs or something?

    As an update to my earlier reports of problems OOH streaming (and downloading) over Thanksgiving weekend, I have since used OOH streaming on multiple occasions, and am consistently getting very good quality streams (5-6 boxes). Hopefully it was just a blip caused by network traffic, tivo server instability on that day, or some such.

    I just wish I could complain about streaming on my android Nexus 7 being too slow or jerky :).

    Consider it done, I'm tired of talking to a brick wall without even an iota of acknowledgement of the points being made. I think I've repeated myself more than I should have but at least a new viewer to the thread will see that it's not all gloom and doom.

    It really isn't idiotic as you describe . Either OOH streaming problems are widespread or not . That's what I'm trying to get at . If it is , it's likely a Tivo problem . If it's not , it's likely a network Problem on your side . Without an answer to this you don't know whether to troubleshoot or wait for Tivo to fix the issue . You could end up wasting a lot of your time for nothing .

    If Tivo can't respond to their customers on this issue , well that's on them .

    Does Comcast's DVR's support out-of-home streaming?

    I'm glad my streaming works. Have you tried a different router?

    Nah . Gave up and bought a Slingbox . I use the new Apple A/C router the Tivo is hardwired to the router .Everything , both wireless and wired network devices work fine except the Tivo . I wish I has just bought a Roamio Basic . Slingbox works flawlessly on wifi and 4g/LTE so I'm sticking with that . I bought the Roamio plus for streaming feature where you could watch something outside the home while someone else is watching something else on your home tv you can't do that with a Slingbox .
