    I only had a Premier XL4 and an the Tivo iPad app setup. I could not stream to the Tivo iPad app from the Premier XL4. That function was not available in the Tivio iPad app.

    I then went out and bought a Roamio Pro. I now have my Premier and Roamio setup to transfer between devices. Everything is working correctly.

    I then open my Tivo app and I am now able to stream from both the Premier and Roamio. Why is the Premier XL4 suddenly able to stream to the Tivo iPad app? I specifically select the Premier in the Tivo app and select a show to watch and streaming works perfect. I thought the Premier XL4 would need the Tivo Stream.

    Mission...
    The Stream chip that is part of your Roamio is just like a standalone Stream that can serve up MRS streams from any series 4 or later unit.

    Yeah if you look at your router the Stream portion of the Roamio Pro even has it's own IP address. It's basically a separate device living in the same box.

    Can I stream from my roamio to my iPad anywhere in the world? Or do both devices need to be on the same network?
