    Tivo's newest video on this world record attempt:

    Nice to see the guy from 1 vs 100 on xbox 360 (which I loved and was sad to see go) found another job.

    Maybe we should have sent TiVo some nice oven mitts for Christmas.

    I think it is possible. I'm guessing they will also be announcing an updated iOS app (with an updated look for iOS 7) that supports streaming over mobile. However, they could announce both of those after CES for all I know.

    If I were going to sit down for 87 hours of binge watching, you can bet the blue stuff would be on the playlist :)

    I volunteered today & was one of the 'witnesses' who watches them to confirm they stay awake & are watching TV. It's going to be tough for them to make it, as I saw signs of fading at 24 hours. That said, I wish them all the best.

    Kind of a boring gig, but it did get me a pass into CES, so I'll explore the show the next couple days. Another TivoCommunity member had the time slot before me. My time slot didn't finish until after the show closed today, but one of the tech guys thought they may have some promos going during the show. I'll ask tomorrow & may sign up if they have something decent. If all goes well, I may activate a couple Roamios & a Mini or two.

    I'm becoming more and more skeptical that TiVo will announce anything at CES. Pretty disappointing.

    Personally was hoping for Amazon Prime Streaming, OOH streaming over cellular, and the ability to direct connect to my Roamio without a proxy.

    Pretty sure I'm going to be disappointed.

    The current out of home streaming uses a proxy. There is evidence on the full system information screen that they are/were working on a method that used port forwarding on your router instead.

    I blame my OOH streaming quality issues on the proxy connection. When I've tried to stream OOH in the past I'm doing it with 5mbs up with the Roamio directly connected to my FIOS router. I'm pulling down the stream on my iPhone which was also connected to FIOS with a 20mbs down connection. The pixalation and constant freezes and overall quality of the stream was horrible. My best guess is that my connection to the proxy isn't very good...directly connecting to my Roamio would give me the best shot at a watchable experience.

    With this the 2nd day of CES, its sure quiet on the Tivo front. Would have expected something more than a lame video of folks trying to watch TV too long.

    Really had expected some major announcements from Tivo this year. The networked DVR is nothing more than a mini with slightly different software to access a remote server rather than a local one. Big deal.

    The network DVR is a big deal for TiVo. You have to keep in mind, partner deals are more important to them than retail DVR customers. CableCard will die eventually, and there's no guarantee there will be a replacement. This may be the only hope for the TiVo interface and service at some date in the future.

    I agree - first time in years they have a booth and we get people watching TV.

    All the future functionality and near term enhancements are still being discussed in invitation only closed door meetings.

    Kind of dissapointing... :(

    Now that the major press conferences are about over, you will see the companies like TiVo make their announcements. My guess is they are saving a few of their announcements until near the end of CES. I wouldn't expect anything earth shattering this year though.

    At this point Android Stream support would be earth shattering. I'm hoping now it will show up by the 2014 NFL season. And to think I was hoping I would be able to use a stream with the 2012 NFL season.

    TiVo data indicates that overall, 78% of ‘streaming-capable’ TiVo subscribers are streaming content to their mobile devices at least once per month since in-home capability was launched in September 2012. Additionally, the average number of streaming sessions per month has increased by almost 50% in the second half of the year, while the time spent on streaming sessions is up 20% per user on a monthly basis.

    No mention that is for iOS devices only and us Android users have been left out in the DARK.

    The fact that there was another announcement from TiVo at all is good news. Maybe we still have hope that more things will be revealed.
