    The roamio advertises that it can stream your tv shows wherever you are. It seems, however, that all the shows I have tried to stream to my iPad when on vacation say that the copyright holder does not allow streaming outside of the home network. A similar message comes up whenever I try to download shows to my iPad.

    Are there actually shows that can be downloaded or streamed when not on the home network? I'm beginning to think that I have been scammed by tivo's advertising for this device.

    Some cable providers are much more restrictive than others. Almost everybody will allow out-of-home streaming for the major networks (most providers are required to provide those with no copy protection). Comcast and FIOS allow most non-premium shows to stream, and Cox and Time-Warner do not (mileage may vary, some franchises of each have different policies for legacy reasons.)
