    I suspect that this is related to the Premiere software. It likely needs changes to support this "non-recorded' streaming from an external device perspective.

    By recording you lock that tuner. If it didn't record that tuner would be free to be used for something else. So just like when it's on a channel from a Premiere that isn't recording, it could change the channel midway while watching something.

    When you'r Premiere is on a live station and needs to record something it prompts you before changing the channel. If you're not there to see it then it assumes it's OK and records the show. If you are and say no then the recording is canceled. They would need to do something like that on the iPad app to allow real streaming of live TV.

    not necessarily true. If you factor in the realization that Tivo is always recording whatever you're watching, you can technically start a recording on one Tivo and then go to the other room and watch that recording, live.

    I don't consider that streaming live TV. Streaming live TV is what the Mini does. It requisitions a tuner and streams the live buffer directly to the other room. The Stream does basically what you just said except it has the ability to start the recording itself so there is no need to do that manually.

    agreed. That's why I didn't say untrue, just "not necessarily" ;) It's MUCH better than it used to be, where you'd have to wait for something to stop recording to watch it.
