    You still effectively are using a wi-fi bridge to connect your stream and Roamio to the rest of the network. That alone could account for the performance problems you are seeing b

    I put a switch on the airport express and it seems to be working great.

    Love the Roamio.

    I need to investigate getting a mini.

    Could I hook it up to my other airport express I guess?

    There's nothing stopping you from doing it, but TiVo does not support the Mini when it must hop through a wi-fi network to get to the host Roamio.

    Just did the base roamio and tivo stream with a 5 port switch last night. After getting stuck on step 4, it now works and streaming looks great over a linksys access point into the switch. This might help others as I found it on tivo's forum if they get stuck on step 4 network testing. Go into settings within the iPad app, then tivo stream system and tap on "Make Service Call" wait 5-10 minutes and then tap on restart tivo stream. From that point all other iOS devices started working immediately.
