    I wanted to report on the capabilities of the OOH stream on just a cellular connection.

    While you cannot initiate a direct stream over a cellular connection, you can start a download and begin watching after just a few moments.

    Pretty cool:

    Start a recording -> initiate a download to your IOS device -> start watching

    So while we are waiting for Apple to approve streaming for LTE connected devices, TiVo has given us a very robust work around that gives full functionality when on the road!

    Good find, this works great. :up: Thanks. :)

    The only thing it doesn't allow of course is streaming from premium channels but usually those shows can be streamed direct from the channel's app.

    The only thing I don't know is what the difference is in amount of data used to download vs stream a video.

    But it was very cool of TiVo (planned or unplanned) to provide this very robust work around.

    On a somewhat related note;
    While I was downloading a show, at first it said 123 MB at basic. After a few minutes it changed to 155 MB's. Strange I thought.
