    I travel for work, so I'm now away from my TIVO about 90% of the time. What is the best way for me to watch my TIVO recorded shows on my laptop while I'm away from home?

    I did a search, but ended up confusing myself...

    FYI, I have a Premiere

    Thanks in advance!

    The easiest way is to use TiVo To Go (get it on TiVo.com).

    There's also the Stream, but if you're home very little it might not be the best fit for you. The slingbox is probably the best.

    Is the content that you want to watch copy protected by your cable provider? If so then you'll need a streaming solution that allows you to access it over the network. Slingbox is one example.

    If not, and you don't mind to download your programs before you leave home, you can use the TiVo Destkop software mentioned above to download programs to your laptop and watch them later.

    If you can't or don't want to download them before leaving home, you're back to a streaming solution such as Slingbox.
