    I was just messing around with my wife's premiere and hit play on game of thrones which I can not transfer from my other premiere and it started to play! Has Tivo enabled streaming content from box to box and not told anybody or am I smoking the bad crack?

    I experienced the same thing a few weeks ago but wasn't able to make it happen again.

    After reading your post I realized what I was doing wrong! PRESS PLAY.

    When you are at the screen that says "Transfer The Recording" don't press select. Press the PLAY button! I just did it with several recordings and it is streaming!

    So the latest OS release has streaming and they probably plan to go live with it when they update the HDUI. You appear to have discovered a shortcut to it that doesn't require the new UI.

    Confirmed here.

    Works on shows with the red slash which was a PyTiVo transfer. Anyone else confirm it is working for copy once content? Not sure if it just worked since it was a transfer. EDIT: Looks like the OP did, I just missed it.

    Doesn't work when trying to repeat Premiere to TiVo HD. I get a message saying Multiroom Viewing is having a problem and to verify settings.

    Doesn't work for me, and the XML listings on my Premieres still have following for all my shows (though I don't have many):
    Code:
    <StreamingPermission>No</StreamingPermission>
    
    Here is how to check:

    For those that streaming seems to be working, can you confirm that the above is set to Yes for shows that streaming is working for?

    I have lots of entries. They all say <StreamingPermission>No</StreamingPermission>. However, this includes shows that are not restricted so this entry doesn't seem to have any bearing on the streaming. As I mentioned in the other thread I can stream restricted programs too except mine locked up on me 16 minutes in and I had to reboot.

    Can someone explain what a restricted program is? I don't think I've ever seen this.

    It's when the cable company or whomever sets programs and/or channels so that you may not copy them to another DVR. In my case with Brighthouse in Orange County FLA every single HD channel except the local ones to Orlando are CCI restricted and thus am denied the ability to transfer them to my other Premiere. When you try to do a MRV and you look at the list of programs the ones that are restricted have a red circle with a slash through them. For me that's about %95 which makes MRV almost useless. Streaming gets around this.

    This is an example of what I see when I want to transfer from one Tivo to another. They're all "restricted" and can't be transferred. But they can be streamed at least now they can.

    The only restricted programs I have are my Amazon VOD programs, but nothing happens for me when I press play on those.

    I just tested and streaming works for me. I selected a program that was copy restricted "Law & Order: CI recorded on USAHD". I went into the details screen and the only option was to "Delete Now" since it is copy restricted. I hit the PLAY button and, after a few seconds of "Please Wait..." it started streaming. The streaming was excellent and trick play responded as if I was doing it locally. The only difference is I saw some slight artifacting (primarily tearing) that I don't see on the original source material.

    Note that this is for Premiere-to-Premiere over a wired Ethernet connection.

    This is pretty cool. Someone needs to do some packet sniffing on thier own home network and see if a pc based emulator could be fashioned to display and perhaps store the stream.

    Just tried this. Works over wired and wireless. Works like the content is local, and on transfer restricted content. Very cool.

    Hope they update the TiVo Desktop server to stream as well.

    Is this working between HD and Premiere or Premiere and HD?

    This will be a Premiere-only feature. Finally a reason for me to think about upgrading my S3 and HD.

    Edit- I see above its premiere only. I figured it would be. This is really nice, I would upgrade my HD because of this but I just dont want to deal with the hassle of cable card pairing again.

    I get lots of crashing.. Had two shows (both copy protected) crash 25 minutes in. Even for shows that work OK it doesn't exit gracefully, the final image takes over the SD UI and it takes a reboot to go away. Anybody experiencing anything similar?

    What type of connection are you using?

    I wouldn't be surprised if TiVo is still working out the bugs since it isn't official yet. I know Streambaby has some limitations when streaming so maybe TiVo is still trying to figure a workaround or a fix that causes the limitation.

    I am not that familiar with what the limit is or why so maybe someone else can chime in.

    Streaming must exist for a Preview box to work. Based on feedback so far, it sounds like they need to work out the buffering issues related to LAN wireless and wired connection variations and need better error handling for buffer underrun conditions.
