    I don't think the Stream has MOCA built in, so you will need a separate MOCA adapter if you want to go that route.

    Will the Tivo Stream work with an Cisco Adapter Box? I have TWC (Torrance, CA) and have had dropped or missing channel error messages for over a year now. I also have a claim filed with the FCC and they are investigating it for the last year as well.

    The stream does not need MOCA, it will connect directly to your router... It does not need to be anywhere near your tv or TiVo just find the shortest ethernet cable you can get and connect it directly to your router.

    It is the connection to your Premier that needs to be hardwired. Either ethernet or MOCA will do.

    I hadn't kept up with TiVo news, didn't know about the Stream until I saw a review today on All Things D. Looks like a really slick device! Stream to a tablet, watch live content, download programs for offline...take my money! :D

    I see that Android is "coming soon." Would be nice to have it right away, but not too long, I hope.

    The Stream works directly with content saved on your Premier - your cable connection should have no impact.

    Zatz's review says no AirPlay or HDMI out support on the iPad. I'm out.

    It should certainly work with a Wi-Fi media bridge. as long as everything is setup properly. Curently with my Premieres, I can get identical streaming and transfer speeds over a media bridge as when it's connected to the wired portion of my network. So I would expect the stream or the mini to be no different.

    Yeah, I have an 802.11g bridge I could try tonight. I assume it'll work. Of course, better bandwidth = better stream.

    I was thinking wireless N. At least that what my bridges use. I would think wireless G might be a little slow in handling several streams at once because of the low badwidth.

    Yeah, it's definitely low. I think most people would be able to hardwire the Stream since it's small and it may be their Premiere that would need a bridge. Mine is ancient, hence the g speeds.

    I'm a little confused, I probably just did not understand some of these descriptions.

    Does the stream have its own radio? Or is it using the wifi connected to the home router?

    In for one! It's worth it to me just for the side-loading.

    Can you queue downloads, or must you manually invoke them, one at a time?

    Do you need a separate Tivo Stream for each Tivo Premiere that you want to stream from ?

    Yeah, you can queue them. Just be prepared to leave your iPad plugged in and lit up for awhile. :)


    No.

    The Stream is LAN Connected - no wifi and it doesn't need to be. Hook it up directy to your router.
    IT DOES NOT NEED TO BE NEAR EITHER A TIVO OR A TV!:D

    I think the question is "will it work with a wifi connected TiVo?" It should if you have enough bandwidth - but that is a big "IF" for a lot of people.

    TiVo says - only hardwired TiVo's are supported.
