  3. No, I haven't tried. I'm sure someday Apple could do it if Tivo can't.

    Mission...
    Use downloads instead of streaming. (Start a download, wait 20 minutes or so, then start watching).

    Yeah, I discovered that the other night. :)

    I'm pretty sure the hotel wifi is inconsistent. This morning streaming was very watchable.

    I just discovered that my cable company only sets the CCI byte on Sho and HBO, and on HBO they only set it on the West Coast feed. The East coast one is free. Also most/all of the secondary channels for both HBO and Sho are unprotected. So I can record from them and download/stream anything to my iPad or PC. :up:

    So are there any workarounds for streaming protected content out of the home?

    I guess I could just use HBO Go but if you travel overseas, then it won't, without workarounds there too.

    Can you stream over the Internet to Desktop Tivo clients? Or using pyTivo or kttmg?

    Only other thing I can think of would be placeshifting hardware like Sling.

    Your cable system has multiple HBO channels in HD?

    Not all system does ...
