    Can I change my vote? I originally voted 5K to 10K. But with all these DOA units I would pick greater than 15K now.:D

    As soon as they add Android support I'll be getting one. Unless a Best Buy 10% off coupon shows up soon. Then I'll go ahead and get it prior to the Android support.

    Watched a bunch of shows from the hammock in the back yard yesterday while the wife was watching her shows on the regular TV. Worked flawlessly, even with a WiFi connected TiVo. I think the stream has made the iPad app a real killer app - finally it does what I thought it should have done from the beginning.

    I do wish that if I paused the show on the iPad, that it would update the TiVo's show's pause point to match. That way when I came back inside I could continue watching from where I stopped on the iPad.

    Just getting to this thread and you remind me of my aunt/uncle in California. She won't let him have a TV in the bedroom either. He uses his iPad there accessing my Vulkano in Colorado every night using a BT headset and complains when it needs resetting every few months. (I don't know why he doesn't just get his own place shifting box.)

    Right now, I'm debating on getting one of these devices. It would mean either getting another Premiere or moving TiVos and other equipment around the house.

    Why? It's just networking. Connect the Stream anywhere on the network and it will work. Even if your TiVo is connected via Wifi it should still work well enough to support 1 stream.

    My family room Tivo HD doesn't have a place-shifting device attached but has the recordings I'd like to access remotely. The Stream would be cool because of how it doesn't interfere with what is being watched on the family room TV.

    Although my Vulkano is connected to the same TV as the HD, it is not connected to it at all. It is attached to the "free" Comcast SD cable box for the rare times we want OnDemand content (albeit SD) in the family room by switching inputs and remotely accessing content not available online.

    My bedroom Premiere has a Slingbox attached to it and I can access everything (including protected stuff) anywhere in the world. No one cares if I take control of what is being watched on that TV so a Stream isn't needed there.

    So, to use a Stream, I'd need to swap the Tivos and other devices from one room to another or upgrade the HD and lose all of the protected recordings on it. (A First World problem.)

    I see

    I don't think you lose anything when you upgrade if you image the old drive to the new one first.
